Fuji FinePix AV100
12 megapixels; 3x optical zoom; Digital image stabilization; 2.7-inch LCD monitor; ISO up to 3200; Panoramic shooting mode; 720p HD video (motion JPEG); Captures to SD/SDHC memory cards; 2x AA batteries
The AV200 has replaced the AV100. Here's what we had to say about the AV100 when it was released in March 2010:
The Fuji FinePix AV100 would be just another light-featured ultra-compact -- except it has 720p HD video. Even as HD video becomes, shall we say, more egalitarian, it's still surprising to see an HD-ready camera with a sub-$100 MSRP. The other noteworthy feature is an ISO range up to 3200, which should produce some horrific images, but we guess it can't hurt to have it there. Judging on reader comments, it seems to perform reasonably well for a $100 camera, but we've also heard a number of complaints about its reliability (take a look at the comments section below). Can't say we're surprised.
