Fujifilm FinePix JX300

The Fujifilm JX300 looks like a run-of-the-mill ultracompact camera, sporting decent but unspectacular specs and features. There's not much to separate it from the vast array of similar cams in this price bracket, though it's built with a metal bo...

Canon Powershot E1

There's a debate raging in our household, and it centers on the appearance of the new Canon Powershot E1. I personally think this camera is adorable. To me, it looks like a KitchenAid blender, with a round, bubbly body and retro-style pastel paint...

Olympus PEN E-P2

Despite widespread confusion about this model when it was first launched in late 2009 -- why would Olympus charge $300 extra for a camera that's barely different from its predecessor? -- it has legs and remains Oly's flagship mirrorless model. It'...

Kodak EasyShare Mini M200

Fujifilm FinePix S2800

Canon Powershot A495

Replaced by the A800. Here's what we said in early 2010:One of Canon's A Series offerings for 2010, the A495 is about as straightforward as budget compact cameras get: 10 megapixels, an uninspired 3.3x zoom lacking wide-angle, a low-res 2.5-inch L...

The SZ-30MR is the latest Olympus superzoom, packing a 24x zoom and simultaneous 1080p video/16mp photo recording. It's a significant redesign from their SP line of past years, and looks like it might be one of the thinnest superzooms ever (though...

The A560 is a consumer-oriented dSLR with specs to put it in line with the rest of the pack. It's not as forward-thinking or intriguing as Sony's new translucent-mirror A55 and A33 models, and as such, won't get as much attention, but the specific...

Panasonic Lumix ZS7

Update July 27, 2011: The ZS7 is still a fantastic compact zoom camera, but the going rate is far too expensive. The lowest street price we've seen recently is $400 (up from an average of $225 in its heyday), so it's no longer a good value for buy...
