Fuji FinePix Z70
12 megapixels; 5x optical zoom; Digital image stabilization; 2.7-inch LCD monitor; 720p HD video; Auto tagging with face recognition; One-touch upload to YouTube/Facebook; Captures to SD/SDHC memory cards; Rechargeable lithium-ion battery
The Z70 is out of production, replaced by the Z90
. Here's what we had to say about it in early 2010:
There's a lot to like about the Z70. It has a slick design, HD video, and some endearing bells and whistles for optimized "social networking." Time will tell if those features, like automatic face-tagging and a Facebook-specific folder for one-touch upload, prove to be useful, but they certainly can't hurt, and it's a nice try. The one major concern we have is the lack of optical image stabilization (only digital here), but as long as it's well built and takes decent pictures, it should prove to be a capable snapshooter for the college crowd.
