Finally a truly compact camera with manual modes and a long zoom range! The WX150 has the latest 18.2 megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor (whose performance has yet to be tested), a 10x zoom, 1080p HD video at 60fps, and aperture and shutter priority modes. Reviews are positive across the board, citing excellent image quality and fast performance. If you're in the market for a mid-market point and shoot, the WX150 is an excellent choice.
