Fodor’s blog has an article featuring what they call the “Best Compact Cameras For Summer”.
I’m always interested in hearing about new cameras and technology and this article does mention some pretty cool, new cameras.
At the end of the article there is a sweepstakes where you can win a Sony Digital Camera. More on that later on!
The article features five cameras. According to the author, these cameras can do things that your old one could not do. They differ in how and where you are physically able to take your pictures.
Here are the cameras:
  1. Nikon Coolpix S1200PJ– Shine your images onto a wall with the built in projector
  2. Casio Tryx– Swing the camera’s frame and twist it’s screen, allowing you to extend your reach, hang it or stand it on it’s own for self portraits. There are also a couple of new ways to set the timer.
  3. Samsung MultiView MV800– Lets you angle the screen low or high to make it easier to get difficult shots. It also has bunch of different editing features built in.
  4. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20– Small and waterproof (up to 16 feet), dustproof and shockproof. Can take 10 shots per second as well as some other nice shooting features.
  5. Kodak EasyShare Touch M5370– Great for sharing photos by tagging and hitting the share button. This allows you to print and/ or send to friends by e-mail or social feeds the next time you connect the camera to your computer. 
The cameras all have some interesting features but I am most interested in the Sony Cyber-shot. Kim and I have a camera that is water proof/ dustproof/ shockproof but the picture quality is not the best. I love having a waterproof camera for snorkeling and other water related activities.

It just so happens that Fodor’s is giving away a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20
