If you're looking for a compact digital camera that takes amazing photos and isn't too expensive, look no further than the Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS.

Other features include 4x optical wide-angle zoom, a 2.7" LCD, optical image stabilization, face detection technology, and in-camera red-eye... more

Sony's spring cameras are starting to hit stores, including the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W130, the compact 8-megapixel follow-up to last year's W90.

We're hoping next year's model will be able to detect... more

If you've ever thought about buying a Polaroid instant camera, do it soon. Polaroid stopped making the cameras last year and there aren't too many left in stores. Also, Polaroid says it is only making enough instant camera film to last until next year, at which point it is hoping an outside company will license its technology to continue making film for instant camera fans.

We have a friend who's a professional video camera guy for a national media outlet. When we saw him over the holidays, he said, "You have to see my new camera!" We figured it would be some kind of fancy, expensive digital SLR, so we were surprised when he showed us his new 7-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3. He explained that he wanted something that would fit in his pocket, and after doing a lot... more

Coming soon: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2, an 8.1-megapixel camera with 4GB of internal memory. The T2 is similar to the Sony's popular Cyber-shot T20, except the T2 has a slightly larger touchscreen LCD, a slightly smaller frame, a lot more memory, and a much higher price tag. But at least you won't have to buy memory cards. To make this even more confusing, for the price of the new T2, you can also... more

CNET says that although the camera offers "first-rate photo quality" and "excellent continuous-shooting performance," it "doesn't clearly outshine the Nikon D80, which costs a lot less."
