Olympus Stylus 7030
14 megapixels; 7x optical zoom; CCD sensor; 2.7-inch LCD monitor; Dual image stabilization; Continuous shooting; 24 shooting modes; 1GB built-in memory; Captures to SD/SDHC memory cards; Rechargeable lithium-ion battery
The Stylus 7030 looks to be a solid point and shoot. The specs stack up to similarly priced models from Samsung, Kodak, and Panasonic that were announced at CES 2010. While the non-HD motion JPEG video is subpar this year, Olympus must be banking on the consumers for whom video is an afterthought, especially if they can save $10 -- there are more of them than you might think. To its credit, the 7030 includes 1GB built-in memory, which will reduce memory card costs and write times. This could be worth a look.
