Great Digital Camera’s For The Everyday User in 2012

Great Digital Camera’s For The Everyday User in 2012 9 January, 20121 Comment

If there is one thing we know it is camera’s, it has been a while since we wrote an article about digital cameras but we felt we could give you guys a guide for 2012. Now these cameras are sure to be improved as the year goes on. But this is what we recommend in January 2012, just to be clear :) 


  1. Canon PowerShot S100 Review: A Near-Perfect Pocket Camera -Via Amazon $429.99

    May be costly but its one that will stick around for a while

The third and latest version of Canon’s popular pocket-size S-series camera, the PowerShot S100.  The S100 offers a wider-angle 5X-optical-zoom lens with a useful focal range of 24-120mm, a new 12-megapixel CMOS sensor that marks a significant shift from the previous S-series models’ CCD sensors, the company’s new Digic 5 image processor, full HD 1080p video, GPS, and a small handgrip. Combined with its core attributes, those updates will keep this camera on the hot list for quite a while.

However, at $430, it’s certainly pricier than your average camera. You might want to check prices on the Canon PowerShot S95 before it disappears from retailer shelves, especially if you don’t need the S100’s wider-angle lens, GPS, or 1080p video capabilities.


2.  Fujifilm FinePix Z800EXR – Via Amazon $128.99


  • Excellent touchscreen interface
  • Superb image-playback options
  • Huge 3.5-inch LCD screen
  • Unique EXR shooting modes
  • Very fast autofocus
  • Very effective image stabilization


  • Disappointing battery life
  • Poor image sharpness
  • Slow start-up to first shot time
  • Poor video quality

Bottom Line

The Fujifilm FinePix Z800EXR offers a great touchscreen interface, fast autofocus, and excellent image stabilization. Battery life, video quality, and image sharpness are weak spots.


3.Casio Tryx – Via Amazon – From $99


  • 240-fps high-speed shooting mode
  • Good low-light performance
  • Versatile physical design


  • Touch-screen can be unresponsive
  • Digital zoom only
  • Fixed battery

Bottom Line

The shape-shifting Tryx offers good performance. It’s a hard gadget to classify, but it works best when you make use of its twistable frame to overcome awkward lens placement and controls while employing it as a normal camera.


That is it for the time being however we will update you next month, with some new additions.
