Fujifilm FinePix JX680 Preview

Fujifilm has announced a new compact and very affordable (sub $100!) digital camera, the FinePix JX680. Features include a 16-megapixel CCD image sensor capable of 720p HD video recording (there's even a dedicated Movie Recording Button), a 5x optical zoom lens, Digital Image Stabilization for blur-free images, a large and bright 3" LCD monitor, an easy to use GUI (graphic user interface), and built-in video editing capabilities.

If you like to stylize your photos, you're going to love Fuji's Advance Filters, which are typically found on cameras costing two to three times more than the JX680. There's also Motion Panorama and a 3D photo option.
