Ricoh Pentax Q7
Price: $500 (with the 02 Zoom lens)
If you’re looking for a digital camera that goes beyond the normal point-and-shoot models but aren’t yet ready for the larger DSLR systems, check out this model, which features an interchangeable lens system, yet’s still very small and compact. The 12.4-megapixel camera comes with a bunch of very cool body color choices (and grip colors too). The choice of different lens options will get you into the prosumer world of photography without having to break the bank. Keep in mind that the cameras are custom-made, so they take 4-6 weeks to deliver - order soon for the holidays!
