Even when the world’s biggest trade show isn’t running, you’re never far from a freshly released digicam.

So trying to cover every camera launched at CES would be like trying to eat all the rice in China. Pointless, and tedious to watch.

In the edited highlights, then, we’ve seen Kodak winning points for style with the Slice, a sliver of a point-and-shooter with a 3.5-inch touchscreen on the back. As well as that big viewing surface, the company reckons the snapper is a dab hand at searching ‘by person, place, date or occasion’. Just as well, since it’ll hold up to 5,000 14MP images. Available from April across the pond. News of its arrival here to come.

Also from Polaroid, a new Zink inkless printing cam – the Instant Digital Camera (really) – dropped with 12MP resolution and 3x4-inch prints.

Elsewhere, things were more pedestrian (Canon, for example, tidied up its budget-end A-series), but Samsung made a splash with its NX10, a new contender in the micro four-thirds camp. Read our hands-on with the Samsung NX10.
