This model also includes RAW file capture, and a nice motion panorama 360-degree shooting mode. But what I like the most on this F550EXR is its convenient GPS module allowing you to geo-tag each and any one of your photos.
2) FinePix HS20EXR
The HS20EXR is Fujifilm flagship model and comes as a “Bridge”. The 16Mpix Camera comes with an improved dual IS, TTL Flash metering, HD (1080p) video recording, EXR technology, RAW Support, as well as a high-speed movies mode going up to 320fps.
3) & 4) FinePix S3400 and S2950

Both models comes with a 14Mpix censor, a 3″ LCD monitor, 720p video mode with AF, HDMI out, Smile and Blink Detection, Face Recognition, ISO 6400 Max, Dual IS, but only the S3400 comes with a 28x optical zoom while the S2950 comes with a 18x only optical zoom.

It’s an entry lever 14Mpix Camera with a 10x optical Zoom, 720p video, Motion Panorama Dual IS and a very handy high contrast 2.7″ LCD screen.

9) & 10) FinePix JX300 and JV200

11) & 12) FinePix AX3000 and AV230
The last two models were introduced at CES 2011, as entry-level cameras with a 14Mpix Censor, 720p video mode, Motion Panorama Mode, Face Detection with Smile and Blink Detection, Intelligent Scene Recognition and Digital Image Stabilization.
