The Fujifilm FinePix Z300 is due to ship in that country from June 20th 2009, just over a week from now. Sensor resolution is ten megapixels from a 1/2.3" RGB CCD image sensor, while the stylish ultracompact body houses a 36 - 180mm equivalent lens that offers a 5x optical zoom range - albeit with a not-so-generous wide angle. The standout feature is a 3.0" widescreen touch-panel LCD display with 230,000 dots of resolution. Featuring a glass cover that prevents scratches and distortion when touched. Fujifilm is claiming a "world's first" for the camera's "Touch Shot" feature, which allows an image to be captured by touching the LCD panel.
Other features of the Fujifilm Z300 include CCD shift-type image stabilization, face detection autofocus, ISO sensitivity to 1,600 equivalent, Secure Digital card storage, 31MB of built-in storage, USB 2.0 High Speed and IrSimple infra-red data connectivity, and power from a Lithium Ion rechargeable good for 170 shots on a charge. Pricing for the Fuji Z300 has not been announced at the time of this writing.
