A year may not seem like an especially long time, but in world of point-and-shoot cameras, it's an eternity. Which is what makes the long-running Canon PowerShot A590 IS - a full-featured budget compact that's the subject of this month's Users Speak Out survey of user opinions - such a fascinating deviation from the norm.
Fujifilm has introduced another player into the budget-friendly digital compact game - the Fujifilm A150.
During Photokina, Fujifilm gave us the heads-up on a forthcoming Super CCD sensor technology with the potential to be a game changer for compact cameras. Building on that technology, Fuji has launched the latest advanced compact camera in its near-legendary F series, the 12 megapixel Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR.
The touch screen Nikon Coolpix S230 and compact, 7x zoom Nikon Coolpix S630 were the headline-grabbing launches from among four new additions - the S630, S620, S230, and S220 models - to Nikon's Coolpix Style line announced this evening.
Following up on yesterday's official announcement of the new 10.1 megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 compact ultrazoom, Panasonic was gracious enough to give us the afternoon to take a pre-production sample of its latest effort out for some afternoon shooting.
What was once TZ is now ZS. That's the news that we expect to come out of a Panasonic press conference later this morning in Miami, where the electronics giant behind the Lumix line of digicams will unveil its latest compact, 12x ultrazooms: the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1.
Today's most surprising Panasonic announcement came in the form of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1, the manufacturer's first waterproof/dustproof/shockproof digital camera.

Panasonic has rolled out a firmware update for its Lumix DMC-LX3 advanced compact.
Nothing about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS85 is cutting-edge, but combine a very solid list of features that includes optical image stabilization, plenty of resolution, and a 4x zoom lens with a presumed street price hovering near the $100 and the FS85 might just be the entry-level deal of the year.
The folks at Panasonic obviously don't believe the megapixel wars are over: the recently introduced Lumix DMC FX150 generates absolutely mammoth 14.7 megapixel images. But with a 28mm wide-angle lens and manual exposure controls, there's more to Panasonic's latest than extreme resolution.
The Casio Exilim EX-FS10 and EX-FC100 bring the high-speed capture of Casio's F1 - 30 fps continuous shooting and 1000 fps movies - down to pocket size.
