If the early snaps
are any indication, FujiFilm's FinePix F200EXR
might just be the kick in the ass the relentlessly boring compact cam market needs, but revolution won't come cheap -- Amazon just listed the 12 megapixel camera for $399. Considering you can buy any number
of $200-$250 compacts that have superficially similar spec sheets, we'll see if consumers can be persuaded to shell out extra for pure image quality -- a tough sell even during happier economic times, but we're eternal optimists.
