The 10-megapixel Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR is only 1.1 inches thick when closed, but tucked in its belly is a long-and-wide 10x f3.3-F5.6 27-270mm lens. And as its name implies, it features the company's Super CCD EXR sensor that debuted in the FinePix F200EXR.
With that sensor comes some unique shooting modes for improving low-light shooting and dynamic range, as well as traditional Scene, Program AE, Aperture Priority AE, and Manual modes.
