Best budget compact
Digital Photography Review have published a pre-Christmas sub-$150 compact shoot-out.
The Sony Cyber-Shot W120 wins for looks, ease-of-use and size...
"The W120 produced consistently well exposed shots with good color, focus and sharpness... it is fast and responsive, even in low light. Throw in the slightly wider angle 4x zoom and image stabilization and stylish metal body and you've got the perfect pocket camera."
While the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ8 gets best overall camera for its...
"surprisingly good image quality with a comprehensive feature set - including full photographic control, effective lens-based image stabilization and a versatile 32-160mm zoom lens."
They're both available for under £100 in the UK, and considerably cheaper in the US.
