Fuji's FinePix F300EXR compact digital camera has hit the UK, packing in a fine set of specs into it's relatively slender frame. Measuring just 103.5mm wide, 59.2mm high and 32.5mm deep, it features a 15x optical zoom, with a 12…
Following Reevoo.com's findings last week that 22% of Brits end up causing on average £209 worth of damage to their tech gear whilst on holiday, we thought we'd scour the Gadget Globe in search of the latest waterproof cameras…

Naturally, this fun isn’t going to come cheap when it’s launched in Europe in September. They’re looking at $600 for the camera, a few hundred more for the frame and prints could cost anything up to a couple of quid a shot.
Oh, and the name. Oh yes. The working title is the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D System. Let’s hope they find a short version, eh.
