LEICA V - LUX 4
A shot in the dark here, but we’re guessing you’ve taken the odd shot in the dark. And that would-be punchy snap has ended up a gloomy smudge. This is where Leica’s new superzoom camera comes into its own — it’s lightning-quick lens (f2.8) delivers sharp photos even in poor lighting, making it perfect for stakeouts. Or properly Instagramming that steak next time you go out.

SAMSUNG GALAXY CAMERA
Most camera phones are phones with a token nod to photography - good for Hipstamatic shots of cats and not much else. The Galaxy camera turns this idea on it's head. Front on, you have a 16-megapixel camera with 21x optical zoom. The flip side is a massive touchscreen interface, betraying what this is: the first 3G camera, running the latest Android software. If nothing else, it's a conversation starter.

FUJIFILM X - E1
Say cheese to the little brother of Fujifilm’s X-Pro 1. They’ve cut back on price, kept the retro looks and enhanced performance – this has a seriously fast focus. Both siblings share a 16-megapixel sensor, but the E1 boasts an OLED viewfinder with a huge 2.36-million dot resolution and a pop-up flash – all in a package about 1/3 smaller and cheaper than the Pro 1. You just need to decide if you want silver or black.
