The Fuji X10 has received an official retail pricepoint of $599.95. It should be available in November.

The Fuji F600EXR is a new 16MP compact camera that sports a 15x zoom lens (24-360mm equivalent). It allows users to capture RAW image files, as well as 1080p HD video.
The new F600EXR also packs a 3-inch LCD and delivers up to 11fps for a 32 frame burst. The built-in GPS also lets you geotag your images.
The FinePix F600EXR should be available in October at an initial retail price of $349.95. Check availability on Amazon.com.
