[TRENDSETTER]Cameras that do everything you could want (and more)

The digital camera evolution continues. These cameras are design-savvy, both inside and out. The latest technology has made it possible to have a portable camera with built-in speakers, or MP3-playing capability, or filters for reproducing photos with colors as true-to-life as possible. The cameras just get smaller while the picture-taking capabilities get better. That’s good news to us.
