The Fuji FinePix S602 provides the resources of an advanced high-resolution camera for photographers who don't need more than 3-megapixel resolution. Though it's priced much higher than other cameras of the same resolution, its powerful 6x optical zoom, high ISO capability, and a unique five-frame burst capability make it one of Digital Camera HQ's top 3-megapixel camera. Buyers should be aware of recurrent complaints about autofocus in low light, a potentially steep learning curve and a low-battery warning that doesn't trigger until the last minute.
