    Fujifilm FinePix F50fd Digital Camera
    [​IMG]

    Though it looks dull next to some of the flasher models we tested, it has all the latest features and takes great shots
    Portly and plain are not the most compelling adjectives for a point-and-shoot digital camera, but the $300 Fujifilm FinePix F50fd has very high resolution, offers tons of features, and performed quite well in our tests. It may look dull, but the looks are only shell-deep
    The F50fd has a champagne-colored plastic front and a black plastic rear panel; unlike several other cameras we tested, it comes in only that single color scheme. Though it weighs more than most of the units in this roundup, it also has a larger-than-average LCD panel, at 2.7 inches, and a higher resolution (12 megapixels) than most. And--a rarity in a point-and-shoot--the F50fd offers aperture- and shutter-priority modes. It also has a "manual" mode, but that's misleading--you can't set the aperture or the shutter speed in that mode; rather, it works like other cameras' Program modes, for access to exposure compensation and more flash modes. No matter; the priority modes will serve in most situations
    Fujifilm gave the F50fd all the latest gee-whiz digital camera features too, including image stabilization and, ac--cording to the company, a newer version of face-detection technology that can detect faces at up to a 90-degree angle, versus only 30 degrees with the company's older models. The F50fd did seem to find and lock on to faces more easily and quickly than other units I tried, doing so whether they were looking at the camera or not. And it starts up quickly, although its LCD panel seemed a bit slow to adjust to changing lighting conditions
    You can choose a power-management mode to saves power, another mode to make the autofocus system as quick as possible, and a third to max out the LCD's clarity (it also, it seemed to me, quickened the autofocus). I like having the option of saving power, but I didn't like having to choose between the other two. In the default, power-saving mode, the F50fd took 276 shots over about 2.5 hours in our tests
    In our image-quality tests, the F50fd earned the highest mark in this group for having the least distortion and received very high marks for sharpness. Its flash is a bit weak, so it didn't get high scores for its flash shots, but overall, it earned a rating of Very Good
    Fujifilm offers flashier, more colorful models, including the FinePix Z-10, which comes in six different fruity colors. But if you're more concerned with what your pictures look like than what your camera looks like, then the F50fd is probably a better bet

    Casio Exilim EX-Z1080 Snapshot Digital Camera

    [​IMG]


    Small size, quick operation, and long battery life make this a great pocket camera. Comes in pink, blue, black, and silver

    The first thing you notice on the $280, 10.1-megapixel EX-Z1080 we tested is its metallic-pink shell and a big sticker touting its YouTube-capture mode--suggesting the camera's target buyer is young and female. If you don't fit that demographic, the camera also comes in blue, black, and silver. Also notable is its 2.6-inch LCD, which fits within a 3.5-inch-wide body. But looks are deceiving. A narrow column on the wide-format screen's left side holds the camera's settings menu, so the viewing area during shooting is more like 2.25 inches. That said, I found the viewfinder exceptionally clear and sharp, even in bright sunlight, making it a pleasure to use. That's important, because the pocket-sized Z1080 does not include an optical viewfinder
    With the LCD taking up nearly all of the camera's back side, there's little real estate for hard controls--you get only tiny menu and Best Shot (scene mode) buttons, plus a four-way thumb-control button, all to the right of the LCD. Fortunately, a large shutter-release button is on top, surrounded by a comfortable-to-operate zoom lever
    Changing basic camera settings is much like the efficient Function control you find in Canon point-and-shoots: Press the Set button; use the up/down cursor buttons to roll through settings categories (ISO, focus, exposure value, and so on); then scroll though your choices with the right/left cursor buttons. A list of the current settings remains visible on screen at all times. It's quick and effective
    I also like the ability to assign preferred functions (such as white balance) to the right/left cursor buttons. The only oddity is the duplication of the Set button's functions in the camera's more traditional Menu screens-an unneeded complication
    Scene modes on the EX-Z1080 are called Best Shots. Using the tiny button on the back, you can select modes for photographing portraits or pets, plus more esoteric options like old-photo color correction (take a picture of an old photo, and the Exilim tries to restore its colors) and YouTube-optimized video recording. Dock the camera in its cradle and press the USB button, and the included photo software de--tects video files and lets you upload them to the YouTube site in a couple of clicks. In all, the camera has a daunting 41 special settings, but it presents them nicely with colorful samples and short descriptions
    Photo quality is middle-of-the-pack, compared with other point-and-shoots tested recently. Both in-the-lab and in-the-wild images looked sharp and accurately exposed, with minimal noise (color speckling) and pleasing, though not especially saturated, colors. The only knock on our lab shots (under artificial light) was a slight green tinge to our neutral-gray background
    I found the photo software bundled with the EX-Z1080 fairly useless: It creates an on-screen album for viewing and organizing photos, but it lacks real photo-editing tools
    Overall, I like the EX-Z1080, for its small size and relatively quick control menus. But, unless you're a YouTube junkie, this camera has little to set it apart from the dozens of other compact models

    Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera​


    [​IMG]

    The SD850 IS performs similarly to the newer SD870 IS but has a smaller LCD, a lens that isn't as wide--and a better price

    Sleek and silver, Canon's $350 PowerShot SD850 IS exemplifies its Digital Elph line: Solidly built, beautifully designed, and sweet to use. One of three Digital Elphs we reviewed together (the other two being the $450 SD950 IS and the $400 SD870 IS), this model has a simpler set of features compared with its siblings.
    Not that it comes poorly equipped: Where the SD870 (which did not make our chart) has a 3-inch LCD and an extra-wide-angle 28mm zoom (35mm equivalent), the SD850 IS still offers a sharp, bright 2.5-inch LCD and a 4X optical zoom that starts at the more traditional 35mm (35mm equivalent). Plus, it has an optical eye-level viewfinder, which the SD870 IS lacks. For any photographer who likes to take quick shots or loves to shoot in bright sunlight, any eye-level viewfinder is a must-have
    In look and operation, the 8-megapixel SD850 is a near twin to the top-of-the-line, 12-megapixel SD950 IS. Both come wrapped in a rugged-feeling metal shell (the SD950's is titanium). With either, you get well-organized, efficient, and flexible exposure controls and silky-smooth operation. And since you can buy the SD850 for about $100 less than its sibling, it's truly the better value for the average photographer.
    One of the more interesting advantages of the SD850 IS over the other two models is its LCD. A common problem with many LCD screens is that they are difficult (sometimes impossible) to view when you're wearing polarized sunglasses--the screens essentially turn black. According to the published specifications, all three cameras use the same LCD technology. But in bright sunlight, wearing my expensive prescription (and polarized) sunglasses, the SD850 was the only one of the three whose LCD I could easily view.
    As with other Elphs, this camera has lots to like. All of the key exposure controls are grouped together on one screen. Scrolling through them and changing settings is about as quick and easy as it gets. The innovative focus-check window, during the instant shot review, magnifies a portion of your photo, letting you know whether that future enlargement will be sharp. Advanced controls include exposure, flash, and focus lock, but no aperture- or shutter-priority or manual exposure controls
    Images shot with the SD850 IS were a bit underexposed, but still pleasing, and all looked sharp. Landscapes had good color saturation, though the color balance was a touch on the bluish side. That's easily fixed by using one of the camera's many built-in color enhancement tools, or its capable image editing and management application
    The only knocks on this camera is a zoom button that's a bit uncomfortable on the finger, and the animated on-screen icon that visually duplicates the presses you make on the four-way thumb button. This icon tends to pop up unexpectedly, but fortunately, you can switch it off in the setting menu
    While the SD850 IS may not have the large LCD of the SD870 IS or the sky-high megapixel count of the SD950 IS, it is still a fine all-around point-and-shoot for most shutterbugs, and is a better value than its two siblings

    Pentax Optio M40 Snapshot Digital Camera​


    [​IMG]

    Not the jazziest-looking camera, the M40 earned a chart spot with its sturdy body and a low price

    The Pentax Optio M40 comes with an affordable price of $200; it has little, though, to distinguish itself from other 3X-zoom, 8-megapixel point-and-shoot cameras (but perhaps we're getting a bit jaded). Its compact metal body feels solid and reliable. The brushed aluminum finish is available only in silver, which looks a bit dated now that cameras come in so many different colors.
    On the back is a 2.5-inch LCD screen with a relatively low 150,000-pixel resolution. The clearly labeled controls to the screen's right are of good size and are evenly spaced, making them easy to operate with your thumb. You have to scroll through the menus a bit to reach all the options, but they're easy to understand because they're labeled with icons and words to describe their use.
    A green button works to delete images in playback mode or while the instant review appears on screen after taking a shot, but you can program it to work at other times as a shortcut to various menu functions. I liked setting it to the exposure compensation mode, which let me quickly adjust the brightness using the left and right buttons of the five-way controller
    The M40 offers 11 scene modes for shooting subjects such as kids, flowers, and food. In the portrait and natural skin tone modes, it detects faces and sets the appropriate focus and exposure automatically. In my tests, this capability didn't work as well as other cameras' face-recognition features; I couldn't get it to lock onto more than one face at a time. The camera's antishake mode works by raising the sensor's sensitivity (ISO), so it can use a faster shutter speed
    Our lab tests saw mostly ac--ceptable results for a camera in this price range. However, flash photos looked awful, giving flat skin tones, dull colors, and dark shadows to our test mannequin. I saw the same characteristics in the flash portraits I took of friends.
    We were able to take a reasonable 266 shots on a single charge of the lithium ion cell--about average for this group
    Pentax deserves commendation for including with the camera a printed, 187-page operating manual. It may be only black-and-white, but it has plenty of useful illustrations.
    The Optio M40 is a relatively compact camera, but it's mostly average in its performance and features. For $200, though, it's a good buy

    Canon PowerShot SD950 IS Digital Camera​


    [​IMG]

    Though very expensive for a pocket camera--and too large for many pockets--the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is extremely well made and performs admirably

    At the top of Canon's Digital Elph line, the $450 SD950 IS looks stylish and is a pleasure to use. Enclosed in a titanium shell, it should handle bumps and scrapes better than the average snapshot camera. At 3.75 inches wide and just over 1 inch thick, the unit is slightly too big to park comfortably in a shirt pocket--but it fits nicely in large hands, and it's easy to pack along on any outing
    Especially attractive is the combination of a bright, 2.5-inch LCD screen and an eye-level viewfinder.
    In our detailed lab tests, the 12.1-megapixel SD950 IS produced sharper detail in its images than did competing 8-megapixel point-and-shoot models. But the higher pixel count will be cost-effective only if you make jumbo enlargements or do lots of cropping
    The SD950 IS's 12.1-megapixel CCD does let the camera take videos at 1024 by 768 pixels--a significant improvement over the 640-by-480 ceiling that limits most models. But because the Canon records its higher-resolution movies at just 15 frames per second (versus 30 fps at 640 pixels), movies can be a little jumpy, especially if you pan rapidly. Only the size of your memory card limits movie length
    The PowerShot SD950 IS permits you to delete a photo at the quick review stage, immediately after you take a shot--a capability that remains rare on point-and-shoots--and this model (like its siblings, the PowerShot SD870 IS and the PowerShot SD850 IS) takes quick review a step further: A small window shows a magnified portion of your shot, letting you double-check the focus. You can examine the original points of focus and move the window to any other part of your photo. Nicely done
    Esoteric features include a Color Accent mode, which retains one selected color in a scene and reduces all others to black-and-white, and a similar option for swapping colors. More useful are the 11 color enhancement options, such as Vivid, Lighter Skin Tone, and Darker Skin Tone
    The SD950 IS performed smoothly and efficiently, powering up in less than 2 seconds. The large trigger button falls naturally under your index finger, and the dual menu system is logically organized, neatly laid out for quick scrolling, and easy to read
    Our test photos came out impressively sharp, with no distortion such as color banding and speckling (or noise). In most shots, images looked slightly underexposed, and colors weren't as warm as we'd have liked. Overall, however, we were quite pleased with the results. The SD950's optical image stabilization worked well when we used it to shoot objects in shade at full telephoto--a situation where camera shake often ruins an otherwise great shot
    At $450, the SD950 is pricey for a point-and-shoot, but if you're looking for a compact camera that goes well beyond happy snaps, this is a heck of an attractive package​

    Olympus FE-280 Compact Camera​


    [​IMG]

    By Narasu Rebbapragada, PC World
    The lightest compact camera on the chart--and one of the least expensive--the Olympus FE-280 delivered images that scored about average in our tests

    The 8-megapixel Olympus FE-280 costs $200--a pretty low price. It comes with a good user guide for beginners but offers few manual settings. Image quality was merely average

    Our test unit was lightweight model and easy to hold. The model we received had a metallic-blue case, but it also comes in silver, black, or red. Its 2.5-inch LCD becomes extra bright when you hold the shutter release halfway down. The real-time preview can look grainy, but in our tests a regular preview that the camera shows looked fine

    You're unlikely to need all of the 21 scene modes (but that list is certainly more manageable than the 41 options presented by the competing Casio Exilim EX-S880). If you're a snorkeler or scuba diver, you'll like the Under Water Wide 1, Under Water Wide 2 (locked focus for quicker shutter release), and Under Water Macro modes; but since this isn't one of Olympus's waterproof models, you'll need an underwater housing to use them. The Cuisine mode did a good job of giving proper exposure to a scene of food on a white plate

    We had a good laugh with the Smile Shot mode, which automatically takes a picture of a subject when he or she smiles. Olympus says that this mode employs the FE-280's face-detection technology and then uses an algorithm to look at the subject's jaw line, neck, and teeth to recognize a smile. In our experience, it sometimes failed to recognize a solo smiling subject (and we're not talking faint Mona Lisa lip twitching here), and it never recognized the smiles of multiple subjects. Then, when the camera did recognize a smile, it needed a second or two to take the picture. Honestly, you'd be better off pressing the shutter release and taking the picture yourself

    If you expect to graduate from scene modes to manual settings, you'll find the FE-280 limiting when you're ready to work at the more advanced stage. Its Program mode provides only white-balance presets, ISO settings, and autofocus modes. For video bloggers, the FE-280 takes AVI video, with or without sound, and has three quality settings. The highest, 640-by-480-pixel resolution, produced nicely colored, well-contrasted video with a slight grain; but the camera can record only a 10-second clip. At 320-by-240-pixel resolution, you can roll for up to 29 minutes if your xD Picture Card (not included with the camera) has sufficient capacity

    Among the 16 pocket cameras we tested for our January 2008 issue roundup, the FE-280's performance was average. It didn't excel in any of our five image-quality tests, though it did earn a second-place score on exposure quality. Pictures of a still life and of a female mannequin looked drab but had good contrast. In our black-and-white line-art tests, it definitely wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed

    One setting on the mode dial, called Guide, gives you instructions for experimenting with different zoom, exposure, color, and effects settings. I found the 'Color effects' preview the most useful: It gave me a four-way split window to show the results of applying different white-balance effects, so I didn't have to try each one from the regular camera menu. 'Zoom effects', however, just shows your subject in four different levels of zoom; you could do that on your own. The guide that asks you whether you want to take pictures to send via e-mail, add to a postcard, edit on the PC, or use in some other way does a nice job of describing what you can expect with the camera's different image-quality options

    The camera comes with Olympus Master 2 photo organizing, editing, and sharing software--a reasonably strong-featured tool for a freebie. (You'll need it to stitch together panoramas.) Our test unit's box came with four 67-page printed manuals in Italian, French, Portuguese, and English; the explanations in the English version were clear and useful. You'll need it to find out about some features buried in the camera's menus

    The FE-280 is cheap and cute, and it fits easily in my pocket. Anyone with serious photographic ambitions, however, will outgrow it quickly.​

    Digital Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100

    [​IMG]

    By Tracey Capen, PC World
    A close cousin to the company's Lumix DMC-FX55, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX100 compact camera has a higher resolution and a higher price, but a slightly smaller LCD

    Panasonic's nicely designed, elegantly styled Lumix DMC-FX100 is a near-twin to the Lumix DMC-FX55. Both are reasonably small and light, though they won't slip comfortably into a shirt pocket

    The two Panasonics differ primarily in their maximum resolution and their LCD size: The $400 DMC-FX100 records images at a whopping 12.2 megapixels versus the $350 DMC-FX55's 8.1 megapixels. On the other hand, the DMC-FX55 has a huge 3-inch LCD versus a 2.5-inch screen for the DMC-FX100. Neither camera includes an eye-level viewfinder

    Beyond that, the two cameras have much in common. You get a smooth, precise 3.6X zoom lens that starts at the 35mm equivalent of a 28mm wide-angle lens, giving you significantly more coverage than the 35mm wide-angle lens that most small digital cameras offer. Thanks to a large shutter button and well-placed zoom control, shooting photos is simple and comfortable. One unique feature of the DMC-FX100 is its E.Zoom button, which swiftly shifts the zoom from one end of the focal length range to the other

    Exposure controls on the DMC-FX100 are fairly comprehensive and generally well organized. The standard mode dial shifts the camera from still shooting to movies, to special scene modes, or to photo playback. Unfortunately, the dial's tiny icons can be hard to see, and two-thirds of the dial is hidden underneath the top edge of the camera at any given time. But as you spin the dial, a virtual version pops up briefly on the LCD

    Photo settings are divided between the function button and the menu button. The former opens a one-screen list where you can set optical image stabilization, burst mode, metering mode, white balance, ISO sensitivity, and image resolution. Though it's a good selection, it should have included the camera's automatic focus options and picture adjustments--sharpness, saturation, and contrast--as well

    Whereas the DMC-FX55 provides a joystick for navigating menus, the DMC-FX100 takes the old-school approach of combining four cursor buttons and a center Menu/Set button. This arrangement works a bit more slowly than a joystick, but it's still effective. The top button lets you quickly set exposure compensation; and if you press it twice, you can rapidly set automatic exposure bracketing--especially useful if you're shooting in difficult light. The camera lacks manual focus and advanced controls such as aperture- and shutter-priority or full manual exposure

    Though the DMC-FX100 has a higher pixel count than its sibling, the image quality of its pictures was about the same in our lab tests. Color accuracy and exposure accuracy were about average for recently tested point-and-shoots--good, but not outstanding. But in image sharpness, the DMC-FX100 earned the second-highest score among recently reviewed compact cameras

    The DMC-FX100 is a pleasing package--solidly constructed, with flexible, user-friendly controls and a high resolution for really big prints.​

    Digital Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55​


    [​IMG]

    The Lumix DMC-FX55 has a superb 3-inch LCD, but the screen saps battery life, and images weren't as sharp as those of the company's FX100

    Sheathed in a brushed-silver metal shell, Panasonic's $350, 8.1-megapixel Lumix DMC-FX55 is as elegant-looking as it is functional. Though not quite small enough to slide comfortably into a shirt pocket, this point-and-shoot digital camera combines a compact size with a sharp, bright 3-inch LCD viewfinder and user-friendly controls. It also has the feel of a solidly built machine--one that will stand up to many photo-worthy travels. If silver is not your color of choice, it also comes in black and metallic pink
    Operating the FX55 is smooth and intuitive. A small switch directly in front of the camera's large, comfortable shutter release controls a precise 3.6X optical zoom that starts at a wide 28mm (35mm equivalent)--ideal for recording expansive landscapes or exceptionally vertical cityscapes. The camera's over-large LCD and compact design rules out space for an eye-level optical viewfinder, but the LCD more than makes up for that lack with an especially bright display. As an added bonus, one of the FX55's settings automatically boosts the LCD brightness when you're shooting in strong light, such as outdoors--a feature still rare in digital cameras. There's also a high-angle setting that makes the LCD easier to see when you're holding the camera over your head
    Exposure controls are equally well thought out: Instead of the ubiquitous four-way thumb button for navigating settings menus, the FX55 has a mini-joystick that, like the four-way controls, handles multiple tasks, such as quickly changing flash settings or shifting exposure compensation. When you press the stick, you launch the well-organized main control menus. As is becoming more common, a separate Function button also makes quick changes to key camera settings like white balance, burst shooting, ISO sensitivity, and image resolution. It also lets you turn the camera's capable optical image stabilization on or off. Though the FX55's Function menu is valuable, it is still not quite as useful as the similarly labeled control in Canon's Digital Elph models we reviewed
    Other notable features include an automatic exposure bracketing that's quick and easy to set, and a user-defined ISO sensitivity limit control--you can, for example, prevent the camera from automatically selecting any ISO above 400, giving you a wider range of apertures and shutter speeds for different lighting conditions, while still keeping your photos sharp
    The FX55 lacks advanced imaging controls, such as sharpening, saturation, or contrast, but it does provide a variety of color compensation options (including Vivid, Cool, Warm, and Natural), plus 21 special scene settings. Each scene selection includes a brief text description, but they are unhelpful. For example, the text for the Aerial Photo scene says: "For taking pictures through an airplane window. Please turn off the camera when taking off or landing
    Image quality is about average for 8-megapixel cameras we've tested recently. The FX55 earned middle-of-the-field scores for sharpness and for color and exposure accuracy in the PC World Test Center. Scenic shots taken in bright sun had good color saturation; wide-angle shots exhibited nice detail, but those taken at full telephoto were a little soft. That last result is somewhat surprising, given the camera's Leica-brand lens, but it is proof that more than just the lens goes into making superior digital photographs.
    ArcSoft's PhotoBase image editing and management application accompanies the FX55. The Mac version is pretty useless, but the Windows app has adequate editing tools, photo-backup options, and batch-processing capabilities. ArcSoft's Panorama Maker--a great photo stitcher--is also present, but you will not get full use of it because the FX55 lacks a panorama mode
    The Panasonic DMC-FX55 has much to like: It's easy to use and well put together. For the price, though, we'd like a little better image quality

    Digital Camera: Casio Exilim EX-S880​


    [​IMG]

    The Casio EX-S880 costs $30 less than the company's EX-Z1080 but has less resolution. It makes uploading video to YouTube nearly automatic

    The slim and attractive Casio Exilim EX-S880 adds a few twists to what you'd expect to find in a 3X-zoom, 8-megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera. The bright and sharp 2.8-inch LCD screen has an unusual 14:9 aspect ratio; when shooting at the default 4:3 ratio, you see the current settings in a column to the right of the live preview. For 16:9 stills or video, you see black bars above and below the preview, or you can switch to a layout that superimposes the settings over a larger preview, similar to how most cameras display them. The maximum video resolution is 848 by 480 pixels--short of HDTV quality, but a higher resolution than most cameras can manage
    Many models now offer face detection, which automatically sets the best focus and exposure for portraits. The live preview puts a box around up to ten faces detected by the camera. When you press the shutter release halfway, the box turns green for faces on which the camera can focus. You can also program the EX-S880 to recognize family members, or friends you photograph often, and assign them a priority order. When a shot contains several faces, the camera highlights family members with colored boxes according to their priority and optimizes the settings so that your favorites look the best. The user manual offers no advice on how to solve arguments about how you've prioritized your relatives
    The EX-S880 also offers a tracking mode for its autofocus system. Once you've locked onto a subject, it keeps it in focus despite any movement before you click the shutter completely. In conjunction with face detection, autotracking helps to keep portraits sharp and correctly exposed, even if your subjects won't stay still
    The Best Shot button gives a choice of about 40 different scene modes and settings, including one called "For YouTube" (it's also on the Exilim EX-Z1080). This shoots video compatible with the YouTube Web site and stores the files in a special YouTube folder. When you dock the camera in its cradle and press the USB button, the included software detects any video files in the special folder and helps you upload them to the YouTube site. You'll need to register as a YouTube user first, and enter information such as titles and categories as you upload each video, but the integration is quite slick
    In our lab tests, the EX-S880 produced some of the most accurately exposed flash photos we've ever seen. Unfortunately, results weren't so good for daylight shots. Distortion and sharpness were also below par. But we took an above-average 332 shots on a single charge in our battery tests. To recharge its lithium ion cell, you dock the camera into an included cradle
    The EX-S880 lacks optical image stabilization, instead raising the ISO sensitivity in its antishake mode to enable faster shutter speeds. Exposure compensation lets you adjust the brightness easily, but you'll find other manual controls. The solid metal body comes in a choice of black or red, but the anodized-aluminum finish scratches easily
    If you're forever shooting family portraits or are hooked on YouTube, the Casio Exilim EX-S880 could be a good choice. However, its inconsistent image quality is alone a good reason to shop around for a better deal​

    Digital Camera: Kodak EasyShare V1253​


    [​IMG]

    You can shoot HD video on Kodak's EasyShare V1253 and, with an optional HDTV docking station, display the footage on your television

    Kodak clearly understands the new breed of photographers who want to show off their handiwork on the big screen in their living rooms, and its EasyShare V1253 is a great digital camera for shooting photos and video to display on your HDTV
    You get the benefit of the camera's full 12-megapixel resolution when you take 4:3-aspect-ratio photos. However, I found myself more likely to shoot in its 16:9 wide-screen mode, which records at a still ample 9 megapixels, because I could display those shots full-screen, without cropping, on an HDTV. The gorgeous 3.1-inch LCD accommodates a full 16:9 image for composing and reviewing your shots. The tiny joystick to the right of the screen is a little fiddly, but the other controls are clearly labeled and easy to use. The menus are attractive and intuitive. You can get a brief help message on any menu item by flicking the zoom button.
    The plastic case seems tough enough to survive most knocks and looks attractive in either the black or white version. You get a host of easily accessible scene modes--I counted 22, including two panoramic stitch modes. The antishake mode works electronically by raising the sensitivity for a shorter exposure, which can make shots susceptible to noise. It has no shutter- or aperture-priority mode, but adjusting the exposure compensation is easy
    The V1253's automatic face detection is especially important for taking wide-screen portraits, which usually look better when you place the subject off-center and reveal more of the background. In my informal testing, the camera did a good job setting the focus and exposure correctly for a single face, but I found locking in on more than one person at a time harder. The camera is also somewhat slow to focus.
    The camera shoots HDTV video too. It can capture 1280-by-720-pixel footage at 30 frames per second and record stereo sound from two small microphones on the front
    At $300, the V1253 is already a little pricey, but if you buy it, you should seriously consider doling out an additional $100 on the optional EasyShare HDTV Dock. It comes with audio and component video cables to connect to your television, which will then display photos and video from the camera at 720p resolution. (Unfortunately, it doesn't support an HDMI connection.) Also present are an SD Card slot and two USB ports, which let you display images directly from a media card or USB drive and upload shots to your PC. And since the dock includes a remote control, you can browse your images on screen from the comfort of the couch
    The V1253's image quality impressed our panel of judges. We saw excellent daylight exposure accuracy, bright color fidelity, and razor-sharp details. Only a flash exposure left significant room for improvement.
    Out of the box, the camera's lithium ion battery is rechargable only via the included USB cable (yet another reason to buy the HDTV Dock). In our tests, we were able to take 240 shots on a single charge, which was about 17 percent below the average in our latest digital camera roundup
    Anyone who has been itching for an easy way to shoot photos for display on their HDTV will love the Kodak EasyShare V1253. It looks smart, is a breeze to use, and takes top-notch photos​
