LOWER PRICES: Camera makers unveiled dozens of point-and-shoot cameras at the International Consumer Electronics Show, the largest gadget show in the U.S. Many debuted cameras priced at $100 or lower, some offering features typically found on higher-end cameras, such as high-definition movie recording.

HD GOES MAINSTREAM: With the exception of some entry-level models, almost every digital camera announced this week can record HD video, which will look sharp when consumers play it back on high-definition televisions.

DOING MORE WITH PHOTOS: At least two companies, Samsung Electronics Co. and Eye-Fi Inc., showed off products that beam photos directly from a camera to a smart phone or tablet.
