Think your smart­phone cam­era is great? This pocket-sized unit is, in some ways, bet­ter. It’s a 20-megapixel point-and-shoot cam­era with an im­pres­sive 25-300mm zoom that will en­sure you im­mor­talise must-cap­ture mo­ments. It of­fers a few spe­cial ef­fects and limited man­ual con­trols, in­clud­ing se­lect­ing from an ISO range of 100-1600 and a macro mode that gives you a fo­cal dis­tance of 1cm. It also shoots high­def­i­ni­tion video. Where it falls down in com­par­i­son to a smart­phone cam­era is in its lack of wi-fi and its 2.7-inch screen is nei­ther touch-sen­si­tive nor tiltable.
