The price of most digital cameras tend to trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Fuji FinePix F300EXR compact digital camera.
The Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR was announced on Wednesday, 21 July 2010, and features a 12 MP (Megapixels) 1/2-inch Super CCD EXR sensor, a 720p HD movie mode capture @ 24 fps (frames per second). Approximate weight and dimensions (W x H x D) are 195g / 6.9oz. (excluding battery and memory card) or 215g / 7.6oz. (including battery and memory card), and 103.5(W) x 59.2(H) x 32.6(D) mm / 4.1(W) x 2.3(H) x 1.3(D) in. (minimum thickness: 22.9mm / 0.9in.) respectively.
The Fuji F300 has a 15x zoom lens, with a focal length range of 24-360mm (in 35mm terms), and a maximum aperture of f/3.5 at the wide end and f/5.3 at the telephoto end.

Fuji F300 Accessories and Add-Ons
Fujifilm NP-50 Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery: $33.64. Get a second, backup battery for your F300. This way, you can be sure your camera continues to have a power source during extended shooting sessions.
Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.
To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.
While waiting for your F300EXR to arrive, download and read the Fuji F300EXR Manual to familiarize yourself with the camera’s features and capabilities.
Good luck shopping for your Fuji F300EXR!
