    It's easy to dismiss the Nikon Coolpix S3000 as just another point and clicker when, in many ways, it's quite a sophisticated little camera.

    Sony NEX-5 review

    9  

    The 14.2-megapixel Sony NEX-5 is cut from a different cloth to most Electronic Viewfinder, Interchangeable Lens (EVIL) cameras. That much is true as soon as you pull it out of the box - impressive-looking beasts such as the Nikon D3S aside, there may not be a better-looking camera available today.

    Canon revives its S series compacts with this likeable SLR backup – but is it fatally hobbled by the lack of video?
