Aesthetically speaking, Canon's SX200 pro point-and-shoot is my second favorite 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 colors too, a cherry red besides the black and blue I've got here. It's available end of next month for $350. [Canon]
