The best point and shoot digital cameras of 2010 are fairly inexpensive, small in stature and easy to use. The digital cameras listed below can be found everywhere from specialty camera stores to warehouse clubs. The best point and shoot digital cameras of 2010 come recommended from CNET.com.
- One of the top point and shoot digital cameras of 2010 is the Pentax Optio W90. This 12.1 megapixel camera weighs in at only 5.1 ounces, but it's not lightweight in features. With a video camera which can output in either AVI or MJPEG format, this camera easily switches from still camera mode to video. Like most cameras these days, the Pentax Optio has the newest in face recognition so you will never miss another smile. This camera is the only of the three listed here rugged enough to be waterproof (to twenty feet), can take being dropped from four feet and can function at 14 degrees. If you're a rough and tumble guy, you've met your match.
- Another of the most highly rated digital cameras of 2010 is the Sony Cybershot DSC-TX9. Considered an ultracompact camera, this 12.2 megapixel camera has a smaller footprint than the Pentax Optio because it's just 3.9" wide (.3 inches less than the Pentax) and weighs in at just 4.7 ounces. The Sony Cybershot will easily fit in a shirt or jeans pocket. With one of the fastest shutters out there, you won't be waiting for this camera to boot up before capturing that perfect shot. Turning on this sporty camera is as easy as sliding down the lens cover.
- If you're a photographer who prefers to set your own dials, the Canon Proshot S90 point and shoot digital camera might just be what you need. This camera is about the same size as the Sony Cybershot but is the heaviest at 6.2 ounces. It will still easily fit in a pocket, so if you're on the go, don't discount the Canon Proshot. Although the Canon Proshot has only ten megapixels, that should be plenty unless you intend to blow up a teeny part of a photo to poster size.
