Attitude comes standard with the Sony Cyber Shot DSC T17 ($499.99). The svelte figure is Sony's slimmest, yet still packs a punch: 3x optical zoom, 5.1 mega pixel photos and an MpegMovieVX option. Office Depot, 1020 Auahi St., 589-2555.

The Head Turner

Introducing the Olympus EVOLT E-300 Digital SLR- for all you prosumers. Olympus' top of the line comes with a $999.99 pricetag, a 2.5-frames-per-second burst mode and the first ever dust-free system-high-speed vibrations keep dust from settling on the camera lens. Now that's serious business. Olympus Imaging America Inc., www.olympusamerica.com.

The Secret Agent

The Canon PowerShot S2 IS ($499.99) is more than meets the eye. Its compact body hides a 12x zoom, 5.0-megapixel capabilities and a movie mode allowing for still photos while filming videos. Office Depot, 1020 Auahi St., 589-2555.

The Jack-of-All Trades

Master of none? It may not be the smallest or the fastest, but the Kodak EasyShare is an all-in-one system. It snaps photos at four megapixels, records video footage and prints photos quickly and with the same quality as your local one-hour photo-and, at $279.99, it won't cost a fortune. Hopaco/ OfficeMax, 770 Ala Moana Blvd., 545-5177.
