The Ten Best Pocket Cameras

1. Olympus TG-310:
The 14 megapixel (MP) TG-310 is waterproof, freeze-proof to -10 degrees and can be dropped from table-height without fear of damage. A great camera for ski trips. £149,
2. Canon Ixus 220:
You need never forget that moment when your fellow student drank three tequila slammers if you have a 12MP Ixus, as it allows users to take pictures at speed in low light. £150,
3. Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20:
The not-to-costly 14MP Lumix has GPS technology which tags photographs with your location, and comes with an oomphy 16x zoom on a top-notch Leica-made lens. £231,
4. Kodak EasyShare Sport:
The clever 12MP Easy Share lets you set a preferred upload destination for your photos, so you simply plug it into your PC and your pictures go straight to Facebook. £62.99,
5. Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-J10:
Hold down the shutter button on the 16.1 megapixel (MP) camera, sweep it across the vista and the Cyber-Shot stitches the frames together to make a panoramic shot. £152,
6. Leica D-Lux 5:
It might look like the Leica Cartier-Bresson used in 1930s, but as well as 10.1MP of capability, it has a whiz-bang flash system and a pin-sharp Vario-Summicron lens. £644,
7. Nokia N8-00:
Nokia might not be the powerhouse it once was, but the cameras on its phones are still the best. This has a powerful Xenon flash and a 12MP lens made by Carl Zeiss. £419,
8. Nikon Coolpix P300:
The 12MP P300 has the fastest lens of any Coolpix camera, giving sharp images and its sophisticated sensor allows you to snap away on even the dullest days. £299,
9. iPhone 4S:
Apple's latest might have disappointed some, but there is much to like here, including an 8 megapixel lens, single-tap quick shot setting and a face recognition system. £499,
10. Fujifilm T200:
Although it's celery-stick-thin, the T200 packs quite a punch when it comes to features. It's fitted with a 10x zoom, 14MP lens and an anti-shake feature. £98.88,
