The Minox DC 8111 is the latest compact camera to break 8.1 megapixels. Wrapped in a shiny aluminium body, it has a 2.5 inch LCD, 3x optical zoom, and 5.1 digital zoom. Along with automatic settings, it packs an impressive array of manual controls for a compact, such as freely selectable aperture and shutter speeds, as well as four different kinds of flash. No word on pricing or availability yet, though here's hoping it's affordable, and that it'll be out soon.
