DOUBLES AS A PHOTO ALBUM
Sony has recognized the way people use digital cameras todayto show pictures, not just take themand created a model well suited to the task. The DSC-N2 records each photo twiceonce to the memory card and once, at a lower resolution, to an internal 26MB memory. Whether you remove the card or download images to your desktop, the internal memory always has a record of your last 500 shots to share with friends. Plus it has a quick shutter responsewe couldn't detect any lagand a 10.1-megapixel sensor. 10.1 megapixels; sonystyle.com
Bonus: Despite the camera's diminutive size, it produced sharp 11-by-14-inch prints.
Bummer: Manipulating settings and modes on the three-inch LCD touch screen is a cinch, but the resulting fingerprints require cleaning.
