Price: $675 and up
Format: Flash card
Resolution: 1,080 lines
Zoom: 10x
Screen: 2.7-inch-wide LCD (no eyepiece)

Ease of use: Slim, pistol-like design is very purse-friendly. But it's hard to keep a steady grip and operate controls if you have big hands.

Video quality: Good, not great, said Leak. He praised the colors ("nice, clean") but thought the images were blotchier in indoor lighting.

The big picture: Not a bad camera, and the small size is a definite plus, but you can get better picture quality for less money with the Sony.

Grade: B
