8MP camera phone face off in this week's vidcast

The 8MP camera phone race is now well under way here in Blighty. So this week we've grabbed two from the top of the pile, the Samsung i8510 and Sony E

Rather than road testing them by ourselves though, we've drafted in professional photographer Pete Gardner to put both snapper phones through their paces. You can check out the results and see what he thinks of each blower in this week's show.

As well as getting all snap happy, we kick off our weekly Christmas gift guide, showing you the best pressies to buy for your extemists mates. Whether they love hurtling around on mountain bikes, catching waves or farting about on a unicycle, we've got it covered.

So check out this week's vidcast now and let us know what you think of the 8MP face off in the comments section.
