Fujifilm has announced two new F-series EXR point-and-shoot cameras for 2013. While the F850EXR and F900EXR share many of the same components -- similar megapixel counts (16) as well as the same EXR Processor II, 20x optical zoom lens with CMOS-shift Image Stabilization, EXR auto mode, Full HD 1080p video recording, a 3.0-inch LCD display, full manual controls, and special features like Motion Panorama 360 and Advanced Filters -- there are a few key differences.

The F850EXR costs about $100 less than the well appointed F900 model. The price difference pretty much comes down to a less expensive (slower) EXR-CMOS image sensor and no built-in WiFi. And though the F900's "EXR-CMOS II" image processor may be a little faster, the F850EXR is still very quick, capable of shooting 9 frames-per-second (up to 5 frames) at full resolution and its Fast AF (auto focus) takes only .21 seconds. 

The good news is that if you don't care about instantly sharing photos via built-in WiFi, the F850EXR is "Eye-Fi" capable. Eye-Fi is a type of Memory Card that is able to wirelessly transfer photos to computers over WiFi networks.
