Fujifilm has announced a new compact camera to its ranks - the FZ10 Zoom. The new model has a 4x zoom lens, widescreen LCD display and a pop-up flash

The most notable fixture is the new 2.1" widescreen LCD for image capture and playback of 16:9 format images.

Using Fujifilms tried and tested SCCD technology, the 3 mega pixel camera is capable of producing 6 mega pixel images ideal for printing up to A3. Additionally the inclusion of PictBridge printing support allows images from a digital camera without using a PC.

The FinePix F710 Zoom will be available in the UK from April 2004. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.
