The Fujifilm FinePix Z2 Zoom is an update to the existing FinePix Z1 model with only a handful of changes. A resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels is derived from a 5.1 megapixel CCD image sensor, coupled to a Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens equivalent to 36 - 108mm on a 35mm camera. Changes in the FinePix Z2 as compared to the Z1 include a higher maximum ISO sensitivity of 1600 (previously 800), a 256-zone multi metering system (previously 64-zone), and a higher resolution 2.5" LCD display (232k pixels, versus 115k pixels in the Z1)

Shutter speeds and apertures in the Fujifilm Z2 remain identical to those in the original Z1, and the Fuji Z2 also features the same lens, xD-Picture Card storage, USB 2.0 High-speed and NTSC / PAL connectivity, and proprietary NP-40 Lithium Ion rechargeable battery as the Z1.

When we reviewed the Fuji Z1, we found it to be a stylish, responsive camera with excellent low-light performance, good image quality, and an above-average movie mode. Given its close relationship to that camera, if you're looking for a compact, attractive camera with a large LCD and a reasonable price point, the FinePix Z2 should definitely be on your short list!
