Hidden in the secret innermost recesses of the digital camera world is a tiny group that likes very compact cameras - cameras so small that they weigh in at one ounce (or less) for each megapixel of resolution. The diminutive Fujifilm Finepix F470 could be the poster child for this club -- it weighs 5.5 ounces (with battery, memory card, and wrist strap) and produces 6 megapixel images. Fuji's newest compact digital camera relies on a usability driven design, point & shoot ease of use, and very basic controls/menus to make capturing striking photos dead simple.
Not to be left out of all the new product annoucements, Lowepro has announced a new line of bags designed for resporters, a rolling computer/camera backpack, a non-rolling computer and camera backpack, and some new colors for their Rezo line of compact camera cases. Lowepro bags are known for their high quality and excellent design.

The Picture Porter is available in 20GB and 40GB capacities, starting at $369.
If you're a nature photographer, or someone who hikes a lot, in the rain, with a digital SLR, you should take a look at the Lowepro DryZone Rover bag. For around $200, you get a high quality, comfortable, camera-toting backpack that is the first to incorporate a hydration system. Not only will you stay hydrated, but your camera will stay bone dry in the waterproof lower compartment of the backpack.
At $150, the Westinghouse Digital 5.6" Photo Frame is a good option for someone looking for an affordable digital frame that can accept many different media types. The interchangeable face plates allow it to fit in just about any decor and still look like a nice photo frame (with a cord coming out of it). It does make a great desk accessory for those times when you just don't feel like working and just need to zone out a bit while viewing pictures from your last vacation.
