The lines between cameras and phones blur even more with Samsung's Galaxy Camera.
Samsung's latest 21X-zoom camera runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and it's the first camera to offer 3G/4G connectivity and a 4.8-inch touchscreen.
The Sony Alpha NEX-5R and Nikon Coolpix S800C both run apps, but beyond that, they're about as different as they can be.
Nikon's Coolpix S800C will be the first major-release camera to run the Android operating system.
The Nikon Coolpix S800C is half pocket megazoom, half mobile device thanks to a 10X-optical-zoom lens and an Android OS that runs apps.
The PowerShot SX500 IS and PowerShot SX160 IS are bulkier than most long-zoom cameras you'll find these days, but if you want a CCD sensor, a handgrip, and manual controls, they fit the bill.
With an F1.8 lens, manual exposure controls, and a much lower price than its premium point-and-shoot rivals, the pocketable Coolpix P310 offers excellent bang for the buck.
Moreso than any Wi-Fi camera we've tested, the 21X-optical-zoom WB850F is an excellent option outside of its wireless-sharing features.
You don't need a Hollywood budget to create compelling videos. All you need is an iPhone and these free apps.
The Nikon 1 J2 is a slightly different version of its predecessor, with new creative photo modes, revamped lens technology, and a lower price.
The $800 Canon PowerShot G1 X has a very large sensor for a fixed-lens camera, and its image quality is absolutely stunning. On macro photos, autofocus speeds, and fast-action shots, however, it may let you down.
These free iOS apps let you control your iPhone's shutter speed, simulate the effects of a wide-aperture lens, and shoot super-slow-motion video.
The good news is that there are more excellent pocket cameras than ever before. The bad news is that it's hard to pick one. We'll help you narrow down your choices.
The premium point-and-shoot class has lots of tough competition, but Samsung's EX2F stands out thanks to a fast F1.4 lens and Wi-Fi features.
