The apparent trends observed at Photokina this fall indicate that style and dimensions are still precedent, as nearly all models aim for design character foremost, with portability and compact frame a close second. The targeted features on these cameras seem to continue with increased movie performance (as models now are assumed to shoot at full-motion; 30 frames per second). As far as performance goes, camera engineers are deducing new means for increasing resolution while maintaining a reasonably sized sensor to retain the miniscule frame proportions. Additionally, higher-quality lens elements, faster shooting and processing speeds and increased resilience are emphasized."
