Top 3 Fashion Cameras

Cameras that compliment your style


Here's something for the ladies!

While the common conception about Tech2 is that it's a tech site with a higher appeal for guys (which is true to an extent), we do go out there once in a while to provide the ladies with options to 'tech-up' their lives... and with style.

Fashion digicams are immensely picking up these days. Long gone are the days that all consumer cameras have to look plain and drab, with the cameras moving on from the metallic silver look to multiple color options and designs that will keep people looking long after the picture's been taken.

Of course, we didn't ignore the performance factor, as each of the three cameras listed below have features that will rival any other camera in the same category. So lets start with our favorite three cameras with looks that kill.

Top 3 Fashion Cameras

Casio Exilim Card EX-S770
It may not be downright blingy but it does look pretty sexy in its glossy finish and it's slim size that lives up to its name. Available in 'Premium Silver', 'Graphite Blue' and our favorite 'Blazing Red', the S770 looks like a great fashion accessory that can fit into any handbag.

In case you're planning on actually using it, you'll be glad to know that the S770 shoots at an impressive 7.2 megapixel camera resolution and 3x optical zoom with image stabilization. It also shoots movies in wide aspect ratio, that would look awesome when you play them back by connecting this camera to a widescreen TV.

The S770 is excellent for those looking for a camera that works great as a fashion accessory without being too loud, and can perform as well.

Canon Digital IXUS i7
Not only does this baby look good, it's also as small as candybar phone, and just as convenient to carry around. It's excellent combination of shiny metallic finish and powdery-metallic colored in-betweens make it look truly elegant.

The best part about this camera is that its performance is surprisingly as good as its looks. You get great sharp results with excellent colors under most lighting conditions. The camera does perform better with flash in low light scenarios, but I guess you're not going to use a 'fashion camera' for serious night landscapes anyways.

So it looks good and performs just as well, so you know this camera is going to be worth it even after your friends stop going "Ooh, Aah" over it.

Olympus mju 750
The curvaceous build and the brush metal finish makes the Olympus mju 750 a perfect candidate in this category. And what's more? It's weatherproof, so you can take this to all those pool parties without worrying too much about the water damaging the camera. Unless someone throws the camera in the water of course... it's water resistant not water proof.

The 7.1 megapixel camera resolution will ensure, that you'll shoot pics big enough for those full-page prints and with enough detail. But the best feature about this one would be the excellent 5x optical zoom.

With all these great features and looks that go well with everything, it's hard to keep it out of our top spot.
