There are certain pocket size camera makers that always seem to stand out from among the rest. Usually, it's the ones that have been around for awhile and who have the experience and resources to improve on digital photography.
While there's no apparent decline in the demand for feature rich digital cameras, there is a tremendous amount to choose from, and that level of competition in any industry means you, as the consumer, will benefit from companies trying to outdo each other for a greater slice of the market. Here are three outstanding digital pocket size cameras for you to consider if you're in the market for something truly special.
Our first review is of the respectable Fujifilm FinePix F80EXR. The mega-zoom feature of this camera may be appealing to some. The 12 megapixels of this camera are great for large prints. The price for this camera is reasonable considering the advance features that it offers. The EXR sensor has three modes of EXR that can be selected. What that does is it essentially makes the F80 a three in one type of camera. There are three modes: highest possible resolution mode; optimum dynamic range mode; and the lowest possible noise mode. Taking it a step further, the F80EXR will also automatically analyze the scene and make the best choice for you.
Next up is the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T100. The fact that this camera features Sony's patented face detecting technology is a huge draw among many of its fans. Other noteworthy features of the Cyber-Shot DSC-T100 include 8 megapixels, a 3 inch LCD display, and 5x zoom. Flash metering is yet another feature of this camera that controls the amount of flash so you're your photos have picture perfect flesh tones. Perhaps the best feature for many users is the image processing capabilities of this camera. Its advantages include longer battery life, improved image quality, and lower response requirements.
We've included Canon's PowerShot SD750 in this article because it is a good overall pocket size camera. You'll find a solid digital camera that includes greater than average movie quality plus face detection, of course. We find the photographs the camera produced to be high ISO quality. There is no better choice for a digital camera when it comes to an ultra-compact design and large LCD screen. People who prefer not to look through the viewfinder to snap photos but wish to use the LCD display instead are the perfect market for this camera. This particular LCD screen is 3 inches and may not be as clean or crisp as other screens but is easy to see in the sun. As far as digital pocket size cameras are concerned, Canon has one of the best reputations in the marketplace. While these are old workhorses, they've continued to be loved by many of the more casual photographers who love taking snapshots on the go. It's possible to find cameras that offer more features - for a larger price.
