Forget specced up camera phones for a minute. If you're serious about photography, but not so keen that you want a super–pricey DSLR, then obviously a compact camera is where it's at.

But with so many out there to choose from, we're coming to the rescue with our guide to the best compacts going in this week's Stuff.tv vidcast. Whether you're partial to a bit of wildlife snapping, need a waterproof workhouse, are a bit of a creative type or just a fashionista, we try out the right camera for you.

Also in this week's episode, we take you through exactly what you can expect from Stuff Live, which gets going next Friday 31 October. As well as top kit from Asus, TomTom and Universal, there'll also be a rather neat Hummer H3 golf cart. which Tom and Joe take for a spin for your viewing pleasure.
