Finding pocket cameras with the best anti-shake feature

All of us are susceptible to some camera shake now and again, either from unsteady hands, dim lighting or just a large gust of wind blowing past. Sometimes you need a camera that will account for this problem more than others.

All of us are susceptible to some camera shake now and again, either from unsteady hands, dim lighting or just a large gust of wind blowing past. Sometimes you need a camera that will account for this problem more than others. Here are three cameras that are reputed to have strong anti-shake capability:

1. Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR: This 10-megapixel camera is built with a Super CCD EXR optical sensor, which is geared to cancel out any slight wobbles when shooting with maximum zoom and/or in dim light. The sensor was modeled after the human eye, so that the sensor can react to behavior and motion quicker and more naturally. (Lowest price: $233.99)

2. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS25: Reviewers have found that its the anti-shake feature that separates the DMC-FS25 from its competition. Steady in the photographer's hand in both low-light and when using telephoto zoom range, the 12-megapixel camera routinely produces high-quality photos, rarely displaying much noise. (Lowest price: $195.95)

3. Casio Exilim EX-S12: The ultracompact, 15mm-wide camera comes with a built-in CCD shift anti-shake mechanism. It also typically performs well in dimly-lit situations and has a tested and sharp Autofocus feature. The major complaint about this model, however, is photos have turned out to be a bit grainy at ISO 800 and higher. (Lowest price: $249.99)

Do you have a camera that has a good anti-shake feature? Or have you had a bad experience with a camera's anti-shake function?
