Digital photos even a miser can enjoy

December is always a busy time at the New York Times Consumer Technology Institute (all right, my office in the attic). Each year, the Institute tries to answer a Zen riddle: "How much digital camera can $300 buy?"
  • Twelve manufacturers entered this fifth annual camera cook-off. Each submitted the one sub-$300 camera (online price) that it felt took the best pictures.
  • Several trends emerged. Picture quality continues to improve every year, and the megapixel race continues apace; this year, 5- and 6-megapixel cameras are standard. (More megapixels permit bigger enlargements and more room to crop, but do not affect photo quality.)
