Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP5
Released January, 2011
The Pros:Sliding panel protects the lens against bumps, fairly durably constructed. Pictures generally come out clear and sharp. Fast and accurate auto-focus, pretty dependable for getting sharp pictures every time.
The Cons:Priced much higher than the average point-and-shoot.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP5 is a compact digital camera built to be compact enough to fit comfortably in a shirt pocket. Control is almost entirely through the 3.5 inch LCD touchscreen, through which the subject is selected and shutter release is controlled.

This is similar to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP7, but the sensor is slightly less sensitive at 14.1 megapixels and Extra Optical Zoom extends to just 8.4x. Otherwise they are the same, with a 4x optical zoom lens with folded optics technology for a more compact design and touch-control shooting to enable the subject to be selected for auto-focus even if it rests toward the side of the frame.

fast and accurate auto-focus, pretty dependable for getting sharp pictures every time
low light photos are reasonable, can see the details fairly well
image stabilization process is good, more than accounts for a little handshake
LCD is large, clear and bright
images are extremely detailed, and can be cropped down a fair bit without losing sharpness
priced much higher than the average point-and-shoot
