Fujifilm has released two new cameras, one of which is barely a year old. Digital cameras are sure a commodity nowadays, aren't they? The Fujifilm F600 EXR replaces the F550 EXR, I'm struggling to see what is different, but the basics are the same: 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, a 15x 24-360mm equivalent f/3.5-5.3 lens, 3" HVGA LCD, 1080p videos at 30FPS, and a GPS module. The additions seem mostly on the software side; a GPS point-of-interest database, and a new panorama mode like Sony's Sweep Panorama feature. There is also a new feature that detects motion and increases ISO to prevent blurry images, something Panasonic had as early as 2007 with their iA mode. Hi Fujifilm, welcome to four years ago. Ships in October for US$350.
