Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3

The Lumix GF3 continues the trend of compact digital cameras that give you the flexibility to change the lens, but is even smaller and less bulky than its two predecessors.

Instead of the boxy, rectangular body of the GF1 and GF2, the GF3 trims off the top slightly, with the body now sloping down from the lens holder.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1

The Panasonic GF-1 is definitely the hottest camera to have hit the market for a while, but for users who don't necessarily want to pay the HK$7,500 for the high-end Micro Four Thirds format model, Panasonic's Lumix DMC-ZR1 might be a worthy alternative.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8

pixel power

Lumix DMC-TZ3

There's plenty to like about the Lumix DMC-TZ3 digital camera, which recently won Europe's Technical Image Press Association award for 'best superzoom digital camera'. While the TZ3, from Panasonic, may look a lot like its predecessor, the TZ1, it has been improved in signifi-cant ways. For example, it now has a 7.2-megapixel camera - up from the previous model's 5 megapixels.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LS2: Panasonic has barged in on the entry-level digital camera market with the 5-megapixel LS2. It doesn't come with the company's signature Leica lens, but instead has a 3X optical lens by Lumix. The LS2, which isn't as sleek as Panasonic's other cameras, comes with the company's MEGA O.I.S Optical Image Stabiliser technology to reduce blurry photos.

Leica digital - the stylish option

If you are looking for a digital camera, you can talk about Kodak, Sony and Olympus. But this is Hong Kong, where Mercedes sells more cars than you can shake a stick at, and where little old ladies and office secretaries carry Louis Vuitton handbags. So if you are going to buy a digital camera, make it German - make it a Leica.
