As well as announcing the S6500fd, Fujifilm has also announced a slimline compact 6.3 megapixel digital camera called the FinePix F20.

Refining the body shape of the company's FinePix F30 model, the new digicam features a 3x optical zoom, the company's sixth generation Super CCD HR sensor and Real Photo Processor II technology.

Fujifilm say the camera promises a 300-shot battery life, 14 scene positions including beach, snow and fireworks and the option to set the camera's ISO settings up to ISO 2000.

The camera comes with software CDs, FinePix Viewer and ImageMixer VCD2 LE for FinePix. Also included are Lithium-ion battery NP-70, AC Power Adaptor AC-5VC, Hand Strap, and USB and A/V cables.

The FinePix F20 will be available from UK retailers in September 2006. Pricing and stockists will be announced nearer to the date of retail launch.
