FujiFilm FinePix F200EXR gets priced

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.
