The coolest camera features of 2010

Sometimes, choosing a camera demands considerations other than image quality and battery life. These cameras have innovative extras that may win you over as soon as you try them.

Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony's Built-In GPS



Good for: Geotagging photos as you take them

Location-based technology in cameras is much less creepy than Foursquare, and a lot more useful. Built-in GPS receivers are finding their way into cameras such as Panasonic's Lumix DMC-ZS7 and Samsung's HZ35W. Sony's GPS-enabled Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V even offers a digital compass to tell you which direction you're facing as you snap a shot. All of this in-camera geotagging makes it easier for you to display your photos on a map interface via Google Earth's integration with photo-sharing sites such as Flickr and Picasa.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
