Fujifilm Finepix X100 camera (right): Designed to look like a classic film camera, the X100 has a 12.3-megapixel sensor in its classy, retro-designed body. What's more, though this is a compact camera, the sensor is big - as big as in many digital SLR cameras.
There is a hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder, which is novel but works well. There's also a 2.8in LCD screen to frame your shots. It shoots high-definition video, too. There are plenty of dials, detailed menus and lots of manual overrides, but it becomes intuitive to use quickly. It's not cheap, but it takes amazing photographs and has drop-dead gorgeous looks. Where from: Fujifilm (0870 084 1310; www.fujifilm.co.uk) How much: £999
