Our photo department is drooling over Sony's Nex-5, the best of the new wave in point-and-shoot-size, interchangeable-lens cameras. That's because you get the best of both worlds: a full suite of autopilot features (like smile detection and face finder) and DSLR-like features such as a midsize sensor (meaning high-quality shots) and adjustable ISO settings. $599; sonystyle.com
