Here are the best new cameras for every kind of shutterbug, whether you're a seasoned TV producer or a beginner who just wants something better than an iPhone.
Advanced Point-and-Shoots: Olympus Stylus 1
Best for Telephoto
The Stylus 1 solves a specific problem: It's a portable, long-zoom alternative to DSLRs with rifle-like telephotos.
