This 10.1Mp hybrid camera with a 3in LCD screen and superb 12x optical zoom is also capable of taking 720p HD videos, while built-in stereo microphones do a good job of capturing close-proximity audio. It takes vibrant, clear images, even in poor lighting, and has one of the best automatic modes of any compact camera. Features include autofocus, tracking and face detection.
