Fujifilm FinePix S4500
14MP CCD; Fujinon 30x Optical Zoom Lens with 24mm wide-angle; Optical image stabilization; 720p HD Movies with mono sound;3-inch LCD; 4-AA Batteries
The S4500 is identical to the SL300 but uses AA's rather than a
lithium-ion battery. Both boast a solid 30x zoom in a bridge-style body,
yet cut costs with a 14 megapixel CCD (rather than CMOS) and 720p video
recording. Expect image quality to be adequate if not stellar. You can save a little cash by going with the 24x zoom S4200.
