The Fujifilm FinePix A800 is based around an eight megapixel SuperCCD HR imager, with a maximum resolution of 3,296 x 2,472 pixels. Fuji's SuperCCD HR sensors use an octagonal array of photodiodes that increases image resolution in the horizontal and vertical planes - where the maximum detail in pictures should be found. Coupled to a Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length range of 36 - 108mm, the A800's sensor offers ISO sensitivity from 100 to 800 equivalent. As with other recent A-series models, the Fujifilm A800 eschews an optical viewfinder in favor of a larger 2.5", 115K pixel LCD display.

The FinePix A800 marks a first for Fuji, in that it includes not just 10MB of built-in storage and an xD-Picture Card slot, but is also compatible with Secure Digital cards - a move we're sure will make the model far more attractive to users considering an upgrade from an existing SD-based camera.

Other Fuji A800 features include 256 zone metering, 19 scene modes (Baby mode, PS(Anti-Blur), Red-eye Reduction, Digital ZOOM, Portrait, Landscape, Sport, Night, Natural light, Beach, Snow, Fireworks, Sunset, Underwater, Flower, Party, Museum, Text and Manual), an AVI (Motion JPEG) movie mode with audio, a two or ten second self timer and a product bundle including Fuji's FinePix Viewer-S software. Power for the A800 comes from two AA batteries (with alkaline disposables in the product bundle).

The Fuji FinePix A800 is priced at US$179 and ships from March 2007.
