We love that there's a company still making new film cameras. Lomography, which sells the famous plastic-lensed Holga, has come out with the Spinner 360 ( 145, direct www.lomography.com). Load it with 35mm film, pull the string, and the camera turns on its axis to capture one long panorama. It even exposes the film around the sprocket holes, so when you print your lo-fi masterpiece, you can show off the fact that you really shot it on film.

Compact cameras offer many other useful features. One that I often use is the grid overlay on top of the live LCD view, for ease of composition and for keeping horizons straight particularly important if you're handholding. Many compacts have a panorama mode, such as the Stitch Assist found on Canon PowerShots and Sweep Panorama on Sony Cyber-shots. These assist or even automate multi-frame panoramas. Although advanced compacts sport impressive pixel counts, there is more to image quality than...

Now second banana in Canon APS-C models, it offers near class-leading image quality, a great build, and very speedy shooting-but no video.

The Widest Stabilized Zoom For Fullframe

HOW POPULAR is this focal range Well, Nikon alone has three zooms in the category an 18-35mm f 3.5-4.5, a 17-35mm f 2.8, and now this 16-35mm f 4 all full-frame and all still in the catalogue as we went to press. This new Nikkor is the industry's widest full-frame zoom with onboard stabilization. On a DX body, such as D90 or D5000, the lens delivers the equivalent focal length of 24-52.5mm. Large and heavy, at 1,150 (street) it's also expensive for an f 4. (Canon's full-frame 17-40mm f 4,...

Panasonic Lumix Dmcg10

Simultaneously check if something is perfectly vertical. The Quick Menu lets you change other common settings, such as flash mode, self-timer duration, aspect ratio and picture size, image quality, and image stabilization. This last one is especially important, as Panasonic's new kit lens, unlike the older version, has no switches, forcing you to control stabilization from the menus. There's only a single command wheel on the G10, but we didn't miss having a second one this click-wheel serves...

Fujifilm Finepix Hs10

Ject sharp but be prepared to tum that ring a lot. The MF ring activates the electric motors that focus the lens, and while the fine control this gives you might be useful in some instances, it can be frustrating when the lens is completely defocused. Video The high-definition 1080p footage we shot was impressive for such a small sensor, though not quite as nice as you'll get from an ILC. Slow-motion capture worked flawlessly, but it reduces the pixel count to a miniscule 224x54 when shooting...

Ringflash

Used for both portraits and products, a ring flash produces bright, shadowless foregrounds and an aura-like shadow behind the subject. But studio versions can cost in the four figures.
