Fujifilm rolls out FinePix Z100fd compact camera

It looks like Fujifilm just couldn't wait for CES to take the wraps off its new FinePix Z100fd, with it instead doing things the old fashioned way today by issuing a press release from its cozy confines in Valhalla, New York. A follow-up to the company's now year-old Z5fd model, this one ups things to a full 8 megapixels and packs a slightly larger 2.7-inch LCD (not to mention a 5x optical zoom), while also maintaining a slim 19.8 mm thick form factor. You'll also get the same "Blog Mode" and face recognition features as before, and your choice of four, two-tone color schemes, including pink, silver, brown, and black. If that sounds like it's for you, you should be able to get your hands on one sometime this month for $250.
