CES: A recap of all the 2011 digital camera announcements

Summary:CES came to a close this weekend, with at least 62 new digital cameras announced. Here's the complete list from Canon, Casio, Fujifilm, Kodak, Olympus, Panasonic, Polaroid, Samsung, and Sony.

CES 2011

With PMA 2011 having been pushed to September (rather than its February/March time frame in previous years), CES saw a lot more digital camera announcement action this year. The most notable cameras to debut at the Vegas trade show behemoth were probably the Olympus XZ-1 and E-PL2, but other standouts included the WiFi-enabled Samsung SH100, as well as the more gimmicky Casio Tryx and Polaroid's Lady Gaga-co-designed GL30.

Here's a recap of key digital camera announcements at CES:

Canon Canon famously skipped out on PMA last year to focus on CES 2010, but like last year, the camera giant's only new still camera announcements at the show were low-end models in its budget-oriented A-Series:

Casio Casio's innovative Tryx camera garnered the most attention at CES, but the company also announced  four new additions to its Exilim lineup:

Fujifilm In addition to the eight megazoom cameras I posted about earlier, Fujifilm announced eight other models, ranging from the entry-level A-Series to the ultracompact Z90:

Kodak Kodak came out of the gate early with three well-named snapshooters

Olympus The new Olympus XZ-1 and E-PL2 (and associated accessories) wowed the CES throngs, but the camera maker also announced five other cameras including new additions to its Stylus Tough series and a 22x megazoom:

Panasonic Though the Panasonic Lumix GF2 is probably the star of Panasonic's 2011 lineup, the company also announced eight other Lumix cameras at CES ranging from the entry-level Lumix S1 and S3 to the super sleek Lumix FP5 and FP7:

Polaroid A brief appearance by Poloraid creative director Lady Gaga probably attracted more attention than the products she was promoting, but the two digital camera announcements were pretty eyeball worthy as well:

Samsung Though Samsung got a head start announcing the mirrorless, interchangeable-lens NX11 and the WB700 24x compact megazoom before CES, the company also announced six new point-and-shoots, including the new WiFi-enabled Samsung SH100 and new additions to its DualView line:

Sony Sony announced a whopping 11 point-and-shoot cameras (second only to Fujifilm's 16-camera marathon), updating every series in its Cyber-shot lineup:
