Sometimes, it's simply too hard to resist quoting the press release: Fujifilm "today unveiled the FinePix Z20fd, a new ultraglam digital camera packed with useful features that let you face it, beam it, blog it, and now roll it with a new MPEG-4 movie-recording mode for the movie-crazed Generation Z."

Translation: The Z20fd replaces the Z10fd in the pretty-but-not-too-pricey market segment. Its basic specs include 10-megapixel sensor, a slow f/3.7-8.0 35mm-105mm-equivalent (3x) zoom lens and a low-resolution 150,000-pixel 2.5-inch LCD. Some of the more noncorporeal features include Fujifilm staples like Intelligent Flash (dials back the flash and ups the sensitivity to deliver more natural light), 10-face detection, IrSimple wireless image transfer, and 640x480 30fps MPEG-4 movie capture.

Really, though, you buy these cameras 'cause they look pretty without poking a hole in your pocket, not for their exceptional capabilities.

When they ship in March, this cornucopia of colorful cams will cost $199.95.
