Sony has recently introduced an ultra zoom camera in a relatively thin camera body, the Cyber-shot DSC-H90.
The H90 has 16MP of resolution, a 16X optical zoom lens, 720p HD video recording, and a high-resolution 3.0-inch LCD.
You'll find the H90 in red, silver, or black camera bodies that measure about 1.33 inches in thickness. I like the look of the red camera body with the silver lens housing pictured here, and the H90 seems like a pretty nice camera for the sub-$250 price point heading into the holiday season.
