The Fuji FinePix F300EXR is the new flagship point and shoot camera for Fuji. The F300EXR features a 12MP EXR Super CCD image sensor, a 15x optical zoom (24-360mm equivalent), a 3-inch 460k-dot resolution LCD and captures 720p HD video.
Perhaps more importantly, the F300EXR feature phase detection AF sensors, which is the same type of sensors that give DSLRs that super-fast autofocus capability. Fuji has built those phase detection AF sensors into the image sensor so that the camera can call upon them at will in order to maintain a very fast focusing speed.
The Fuji F300EXR should be available in August 2010 at an initial retail price of $329.95. Check availability on Amazon.com.
