Fujifilm FinePix Z800EXR
12-megapixel resolution; 1/2-inch Super CCD EXR sensor; 5x optical zoom; 32mm wide angle; 3.5-inch wide-screen touchscreen LCD; 720p HD video; Phase-detection autofocus; Optical image stabilization (Intelligent); Captures to SD/SDHC media cards; Rechargeable lithium-ion battery
The Z800EXR is a modest update to the very recent Z700EXR, released earlier this year. At first glance, there's not a whole lot of difference between the two. On closer inspection, there's a big difference: phase-detection autofocus for dSLR-like focus speeds. It's a feature that's basically unheard of on a compact camera, and definitely one to get excited about. There's also Fujifilm's solid EXR sensor, which should improve low-light performance, rounded out with HD video, a 5x, a run-of-the-mill lens, and a stylish body.
