It also offers full HD video, and 8fps shooting at full resolution. Here’s what they had to say:

“The Fujifilm FinePix F600EXR is a good incremental update to the F550 EXR and still packs everything into a compact body and does so at a significantly lower price than the competition. With a wide angle 15x optical zoom lens, a large 3inch screen and built in GPS, the compact camera would make a great travel companion, especially as it’s one of the smallest pocket zooms available with GPS.”
