  • Panasonic NV-GS180

    The NV-GS180 is the successor to the mid-range NV-GS150, and its specifications are remarkably similar. It's based around a trio of 1/6in 0.8Mp CCDs, offering true…

  • Olympus mju 700

    The mju 700 is the latest in Olympus' range of compact, no-fuss digital cameras, designed for beginners. It's attractively priced, but it lacks durability. There are…

  • Casio Exilim EX-S600

    Makers of compact digicams have turned 'pocket-sized' into an overused stock phrase. But if any camera truly deserves that accolade, it's Casio's Exilim EX-S600.

  • Ricoh Caplio R30

    Ricoh isn't one of the best-known names in digital photography, but it has a good track record for value. The R30 is a decent example.

  • Panasonic VDR-D300

    It's a surprise to see the very consumer-oriented DVD camcorder format married to semi-pro three-CCD optics in Panasonic's VDR-D300.

  • BenQ E520+

    The slim E520+ is a good-looking piece of kit, and it's a dream to use, needing only a single click to move between camera modes.

  • Acer CP-8660

    The CP-8660 features vaguely retro styling and a classy black-and-silver finish, and it feels every bit as nice as it looks.

  • Kodak EasyShare V610

    Kodak hopes strong zoom facilities and intriguing lens technology will give the V610 the lead over cheaper models.

  • Sanyo Xacti VPC-C6E

    One of the strangest devices we've seen in a long time, the Xacti VPC-C6E looks like a Dictaphone that's been cross-bred with a camcorder.

    £364 inc VAT

  • Panasonic NV-GS500EB-S

    The Panasonic NV-GS500EB-S is an extremely good camcorder that offers a host of controls, shoots extremely realistic video and is very flexible.

  • Creative Live Cam Voice

    Despite its lauded audio options and Adaptive Array Microphone technology, we can't help thinking that the Creative Live doesn't represent much of a leap forward.

  • Samsung VP-DC161W

    Aimed at the novice end of the market, the VP-DC161W is designed to ensure users spend less time figuring out how to use it and more time filming.

    £260 inc VAT

  • Nikon Coolpix S6

    The Coolpix S6 is a good-looking product – and a price tag of just £234 for a pocket-size, 6Mp, Wi-Fi-equipped camera is even more attractive.

    £234 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Fujifilm FinePix S6500fd

    This certainly couldn't be considered a pocket-sized digicam. But what it lacks in portability, the FinePix makes up for with a sprinkling of advanced features.

    £349 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • BenQ DC X600

    Basing the X600 on the Pentax Optio S6 wasn't a bad idea, as the S6 was a highly capable camera and one of the prettiest compacts of recent years.

  • Canon Ixus 850 IS

    As we've come to expect from Canon's Ixus family of cameras, the 850 IS is beautifully constructed. You'll keep noticing little details long after it's been unpacked.

  • Fujifilm FinePix F31fd

    We're not easily impressed, but the FinePix F31's face-recognition feature, here given its best rendition yet in a pocket digital camera, has had us running around…

  • Sanyo Xacti VPC-E7

    From a stylistic point of view, the Xacti VPC-E7 isn't the most adventurous of compacts – but while the design lacks originality, the Sanyo is a handsome handful.

    £174 inc VAT

  • Canon PowerShot G7

    The G7's comprehensive feature set includes a 10Mp sensor, face-detection autofocus, optical image stabilisation and a maximum ISO light sensitivity of 1,600.

  • Nikon D40

    The D40 SLR digicam picks up where the D50 left off, and on paper, little seems to have changed. But the specifications don't tell you just how much things have evolved.
