Fujifilm FinePix F450
Square in shape only, the tiny (2.5x2.9x0.8-inch), stainless-clad F450 is photo jewelry. But this digital pendant is more than eye candy, with 5.2-megapixel resolution, a 3.4X zoom (38-130mm equivalent f/2.8-5.5), and a two-inch LCD monitor, surprisingly big for such a small camera. The grip slides to turn the camera on and off, and power is supplied by a wafer-thin Li-ion battery that recharges when the camera is placed in the included cradle. It gets along just fine with our iPod Photo, thank you.

About $330.
