A satisfying pocket camera with a long zoom, GPS, and helpful low-light modes With a 10-megapixel back-illuminated sensor, a 10x zoom, a built-in GPS, and a very clever way of capturing stable images in low light, the Sony HX5V is another pocket long-zoom digital camera worthy of consideration. The Sony HX5V is one of the few digital cameras on the market to include Sony's Handheld Twilight mode, which takes six rapid images and combines them to form one low-light shot that's usually better than what other cameras can get at high ISO in the same light. The Sony HX5V's 10x zoom ranges from 25-250mm, offering a good wide-angle to solid telephoto range. Its unique grip provides a good hold while not protruding from the body, allowing the HX5V to slip easily into most pockets. The Sony HX5V also serves as a competent HD video camera, recording at up to 1080i at 60 fields per second, in addition to recording stereo audio.

Incredible image quality in an affordable, pint-sized package
The compact and lightweight Olympus E-PL5 inherits the exceptional 16-megapixel sensor from the groundbreaking OM-D E-M5, one of our all-time favorite compact system cameras. The image quality we saw from the speedy E-PL5 proved to be nothing less than stellar -- demonstrating accurate colors, an impressive dynamic range and tons of detail. Unfortunately you have to navigate through a maddening maze of menus to uncover the camera's full photographic potential, as well as deal with such limitations as poor AF motion tracking and run-of-the-mill (though Full 1080p HD) video quality. But considering that the Olympus E-PL5 produces images that rival those from much more expensive DSLRs and CSCs, the compromises may be only a small price to pay. Check out our Olympus E-PL5 review to find out if it's the perfect camera for you, or buy one here. (minimize)
