Summer's here, which means the season for superslim compacts - the newest being Samsung's 5MP i5, hot on the heels of Nikon's Coolpix S2. It looks uncannily like the long lost twin of the Nikon, but this overachiever is definitely the Arnie to Nikon’s Danny De Vito. For starters, the i5 boasts a smorgasbord of extra features, including 2 hours of video recording, movie stabiliser function and built-in movie editing. It also crams in a super macro function, meaning you can shoot your loved ones at point blank range if you so desire. The cleverest feature by far, though, is the text mode. You can take photos of text from any highbrow book or magazine you can’t be bothered to read and extract the offending words later using the included Digimax Viewer text recognition software. The i5 hits the shelves on 1st June for under £250.
