FinePix F300EXR ($329.95)

This model includes a 15x Fujinon Super Wide-Angle lens (24mm - 360mm equivalent) and Fujifilm's next-generation EXR technology with Hybrid High Speed Auto Focus, as well as a 12-MegaPixel EXR Super CCD, a large, 3-inch High-Contrast 460K LCD, Intelligent Image Stabilization and HD movie capture at 720p.

The F300EXR is fitted with a high contrast 460K-pixel 3-inch LCD. Fujifilm said the high-contrast LCD is a benefit in bright light and means that the camera can be directed at various shooting angles to enable framing of awkward shots.

Available in matte black, red, gold or shell pink, the FinePix Z800EXR combines a large, 3.5-inch LCD with a 12-MegaPixel Super CCD EXR sensor, a Fujinon 5x optical zoom lens (36-180mm equivalent) and ISO levels of up to 1600 at full resolution.

The Z800EXR uses both Phase Detection AF and Contrast AF to offer fast auto focus speeds in all scenes. Also included is face-recognition technology, allowing users to identify the people in a picture by name. The technology gives users the ability to preprogram eight people into the camera.

FinePix S2800HD ($259.95)

To provide better-exposed and focused portrait shots, the S2800HD is fitted with Fujifilm's face detection technology, which is able to track up to 10 faces simultaneously, at almost any angle to the camera. The system instantly corrects red-eye and then saves both the original and the corrected image file automatically.
