(Not sure which digital camera to get? Check out our comparison guide.)

As all digital photo aficionados will tell you, digital cameras eat batteries like there's no tomorrow. The designers of the gSmart Mini2 have cleverly added a built-in rechargeable battery which is good for several reasons, the most obvious being that you don't need to buy lots of batteries. The other Very Good Reason is that the gSmart2 protects your shots by shutting off when its low on power - giving you time to get to your PC and download those valuable snaps before they get wiped off.

A fully charged battery lasts around an hour with continuous use, with a standby time of around 1 week. When batteries are low, standby time is reduced to around 2 days.

The GSmart serves up a stonking 2.1-megapixel resolution (after software jiggery-pokery), despite being only a touch larger than a Zippo lighter. The 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor makes it one of the most powerful digital cameras of this size money can buy and itÂ’s not simply content with capturing your still efforts, either, as the GSmart lets you store 90 seconds of video as well. A macro select dial allows you to adjust focus for close-up shots, although it does stick out around a centimetre from the camera's body, bulking it out slightly.

Set the camera to low resolution (640x480 pixels) and you can store a mind-boggling 216 shots on the Mini2Â’s internal 16MB memory, although even at its highest quality setting, the GSmart can cram in 36 pixel-perfect photos. The cunning software takes the existing image and predicts where the additional pixels should go, producing a final result that looks like it was taken by a camera costing twice as much. Genius.

Included in the package is a neck-strap and video conferencing cradle to pop your GSmart in while beaming your fizzog to friends across the globe, alongside all the software you need to digitally manipulate your photos.
