It’s another Panasonic Lumix, but the TZ40 stands out from the TS5 due to its 20x optical zoom – you can capture an image of even the smallest creature off in the distance in great detail with this device. Not to mention that it is very compact in design, so that there is never any hassle carrying it around on a trek.

7. Pentax WG-3 GPS

Look at this camera from the front and you could mistake it for a sports trainer. Mind you, the Pentax WG-3 GPS is sure to leave a big footprint on the camera market due to its useful LCD information screen next to the lens, GPS for keeping track of where images were taken, and, of course, that stylish design.

8. Sony RX100 II

The second Sony camera to feature on our list, the RX100 II makes things simple for the budding photographer by offering them the chance to capture what the Japanese giant has deemed as Raw images at the click of a button. A backlit sensor means you can take top-quality pictures come rain or shine, day and night, too.

9. Olympus Tough TG-830 iHS

Weighing just 7.5 ounces on the scales, you could easily forget that you have the nimble Olympus Tough TG-830 iHS in your pocket. However, the chance to choose between 720p, 1080i and 1080p video resolution, as well as take pictures through a 16-megapixel sensor, shows that this gadget packs a hefty punch.

10. Fuji X20

Fuji X20

One of the main characteristics of the Fuji X20 which enables it to catch the eye in the congested camera market is how its black, leather-like design helps to give it a wonderful retro feel. However, phase-detection AF pixels and a state-of-the-art EXR sensor showcases that this camera can hold its own when it comes to snapping high-quality photos.
