Building on the success of the S90, the S95’s handling has been improved and there are some useful new features. Image quality is also right up there with the bulkier LX5, but it does lose some flexibility as a result.

The new firmware makes a remarkable difference and the NEX-3 produces identical image quality to the NEX-5. It’s £110 cheaper and that makes it mighty attractive.

Sigma's SD15 is an interesting, but slightly flawed camera. Picture quality can be something of a mixed bag - especially at higher ISOs - and its quirkiness will frustrate some users. It’s a love-hate DSLR.

Cameras Compact cameras

Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-LX5 replaces the LX3 as the ultimate enthusiast compact, but at around £400 it’s not cheap. If the LX5’s excellent high ISO performance, great video mode and versatile 24-90mm lens sound attractive, it’s the best compact in town, but otherwise the LX3 is still a great camera and it’s almost £100 cheaper.

Samsung's EX1 is a very good camera that enthusiasts will love. It's got an excellent lens and the articulated screen is useful, but it doesn't quite do enough to beat the cheaper LX3.
