Fuji FinePix JV100
12 megapixels; 3x optical zoom; 2.7-inch LCD monitor; 720p HD video; ISO range up to 3200; Captures to SD/SDHC memory cards; Rechargeable lithium-ion battery;
Here's another bargain model from Fuji (though it's technically been replaced by the JV200). The selling point here is the 720p HD video (even the $99 Fuji model has that feature this year), and aside from that it looks like a standard $130 camera. An ISO range up to 3200 is also in the specs, but the noise in those images will end up being so high that it's almost not worth mentioning. The J series has had some durability problems in the past, so let's hope that the JV offshoot is solid.
