Fujifilm doubles up on cheapy 10-megapixel ultracompacts

The FinePix J series of digital cameras gets a new 10-megapixel, 3X zoom model, the J20fd, and a 10-megapixel wide-angle 5X zoom model, the J250.

Low-end cameras are rarely exciting, but Fujifilm is giving it a shot anyway with the FinePix J20fd and J250. Both are 10-megapixel ultracompacts with automatic scene recognition, face detection, sensitivity up to ISO 1600 at full resolution, and image stabilization--mechanical- and ISO-based for the J250, ISO-based only in the J20fd.

That of course isn't where the differences end. The J20fd is the more basic of the two, providing a 2.7-inch LCD and 3X optical zoom, while the J250 has a 3.0-inch LCD and a wide-angle 28mm lens with a 5X zoom.

Available in March 2009, the J20fd will be available in black or silver versions for $129.95, and the fuller-featured J250 is $199.95 and comes in black only.
