It's tough to stand out in the realm of budget point-and-shoots, but Sony may rise (slightly) above the crowd with its new Cyber-shot W830. The compact cam refines last year's W730 with an even sharper 20-megapixel sensor (up from 16) while preserving the 8x, 25-200mm lens you'll want for those long-distance family reunion shots. Optical stabilization and 720p movie-making also make the cut. The W830 isn't a revolution, then, but it'll be hard to object to the camera's rock-bottom $120 price when it goes on sale in February.
