Fujifilm FinePix T200
14 megapixels; 10x optical zoom; 28mm wide-angle; Optical (sensor-shift) image stabilization; 2.7-inch LCD monitor; 720p HD video; Captures to SD/SDHC media cards; Rechargeable lithium-ion battery
As a member of Fujifilm's T series, the T200 pairs a versatile 10x zoom lens with an extra-slim body. Featuring the same 14 megapixel sensor, 28-280mm lens, 720p HD video, and incredibly thin 18.5mm chassis as its brother the T300, the only difference between the two is screen size: the T200 has a 2.7” LCD rather than a three-incher. You’ll pay $179, a savings of $20, if you are willing to settle for the smaller screen. Our reservations with the T300 hold here too: budget travel zooms often disappoint, but for that kind of money, we can turn our forgive a few of its issues.
