Fujifilm FinePix F600EXR Pocket Superzoom Camera AnnouncedFujifilm has spiced up their top pocket superzoom camera with some useful new features. The new Fujifilm FinePix F600EXR is built on the same basic feature set as the F550EXR – that is, a 16-megapixel backlit CMOS EXR sensor, a 15x 24-360mm zoom lens, and built-in GPS image tagging. To that solid foundation they’ve added a new EXR Auto shooting mode with Motion Detection to, “virtually eliminate subject blur in all lighting conditions.” They also added Intelligent Digital Zoom to double the telephoto reach of the lens and a new Landmark Navigator feature that uses the built-in GPS to, “help photographers pin-point locations and new shooting opportunities.” The FinePix F600 EXR also has a new rubberized finish to improve the grip.

I really like pocket superzoom cameras because they offer so many features in such an easy-to-carry package. I actually included the Fujifilm FinePix F600′s predecessor, the F550EXR, in my recent Top Five Pocket Superzoom Cameras guide. Now it looks like I’m going to have to update the article and replace the F550EXR with the F600.
