Full review posted for Fuji FinePix 2600 Zoom!|

Fuji's low-cost (but certainly not low-spec) 2 megapixel, 3x optical zoom digicam on Dave's "reviewing bench"...
Really nice 2 megapixel digicams with zoom lenses and full features are finally hitting the $299 "sweet spot" for the consumer market, evidenced most recently by Fuji's new FinePix 2600 Zoom. An update of last year's best-seller from Fuji, the 2400 Zoom, the 2600 has a fast USB connection, a 3x zoom lens, and all the standard features. (Exposure compensation, multi-mode flash, multiple white balance options, etc.)
It takes great pictures, slips into a largish pocket easily, and (get this) includes a set of NiMH rechargeable batteries and charger. (This is the first time we've seen a camera this cheap come packed with batteries & charger like this.)
Overall, one of the best deals for an entry-level, but fully functional camera we've yet seen. Dave's had it in his Holiday Wishbook for a good week already, and now have finally finished his review of it - summing it up as a "very nice little camera, at a good price". Read the review or just pop over to the Wishbook to order one!
