The FinePix F770 EXR is one of Fuji's most powerful and versatile, yet incredibly compact digicams. It has been loaded with all of their highest quality features and components, including a 16-Megapixel backside illuminated CMOS imaging sensor, dual core EXR image processor, 20x optical zoom lens and full 1080p HD video recording with just one touch of a button. Fuji's EXR Auto shooting mode makes every decision for you, including changing the camera's shooting mode and choosing the correct scene modes. The incredibly powerful processor also gives the camera the ability to use burst shooting for creative effects, not just for quickly capturing images.

It can also be used to find your way with the built-in GPS unit. Use it find landmarks or just to track where you shoot. This is also a very stylish camera and it will turn some heads.
