Fujifilm FinePix F500EXR
Released January, 2011
The Pros:Zoom has a great range, can track distant subjects. Enough image stabilization to more than account for handshake. Lag time between pressing the trigger and shutter release is minimal.
The Cons:Flash isn't very powerful, has a limited range.
Fujifim's FinePix F500EXR is a higher-end point-and-shoot model. Its main features include an upgraded CMOS sensor (over older Fujifilm models) , which improves noise reduction and contrast range, as well as allows for longer continuous shooting and high-definition video recording.

Also, the new "EXR" processor is an improvement over older models in that it is more sensitive to different scene inputs, improving the auto-detect scene mode. Its optical zoom is large for a compact point-and-shoot form factor (15x) on a wide-angle (24mm) lens. This camera can select from 27 scene presets, and has an advanced auto-detect function that focuses on faces or pets, removes red-eye, and can automatically trigger the shutter as soon as a face is detected. A combination of other features, like a high ISO, image stabilization, 3-inch LCD display and panorama stitching make this a more premium point-and-shoot.
