The Fujifilm X10 is probably the most highly anticipated digital compact camera of 2011. Designers and fashionistas will fall in love with its retro looks, and enthusiasts will appreciate its manual controls and image quality. The X10 shoots at 12MP with a large 2/3" sensor, a 4x optical zoom lens with a bright f/2 (W)-f/2.8 (T) aperture.
The predecessor of the X10, the X100 stands apart in a class of its own. The retrospective styling and build quality is superb, as is the image quality. No surprise there, as it comes with an APS-C sized sensor and a bright 35mm f/2 fixed lens. For the old school shooters, the X100 also has a unique optical/electronic viewfinder hybrid, which you can toggle to see through the lens or through the sensor with.
The Casio EX-ZR100 shoots 12MP with a long 12.5x optical zoom and 24mm wide angle lens.
The Casio EX-TR100 is a rather unique camera which twists and swivels, letting you shoot at any angle you want. It's unique enough that it probably won't be for everyone, so make sure you check it out first before laying down any cash for it. It shoots at 12MP with a 21mm wide angle lens and a 2x digital zoom.
