Default Fuji F500

I was on the Fuji website and checking out the soon to be released F500. On paper it looks like the ideal point and shoot with a large CMOS sensor, high res display and high numerical ISO sensitivity.

Any thoughts?

They also have an f550exr. I have a s200exr. I shoot only in exr mode full automatic. If these cameras offer the same exr quality, expect very good indoor shots and should keep people happy if the price is right!

Cresho, I think the F550 adds GPS but I could be wrong....Since I have no use for that the 500 is on my radar. I was about to pull the trigger on a canon SX130 but now I'm gonna wait it out for this bad boy.

How is the F500 different from the F300?

The F300 got great reviews from Steve but nobody seems to be using it.

The F300 came out right after I bought my SX-130 - not sure which I would have gone with but on paper the F300 looks better than the sx-130...

The F300 is a CCD sensor wheras the F500/F550 are CMOS 16mp. At least thats the most significant difference.

Nice to see a compact type Fuji with RAW-the F550EXR. What was the last one to have RAW before the F550EXR?

Last compact: E900

The more recent Fujifilm cameras with RAW have been mini-DSLR size bridge cameras, e.g. S100FS.
