Aesthetically speaking, Canon's SX200 pro point-and-shoot is my second favourite camera of the bunch, after the shockproof Cold-War-and-candy inspired D10. It just looks so classy, and it's got a 12x zoom, 28mm wide-angle lens.
Other vital specs: 12MP sensor (Canon likes the number 12, I guess), 720p video recording and a 3-inch screen. Yep, there are multiple colours too, a cherry red besides the black and blue I've got here. It's available in the US end of next month for $US350. [Canon]
