Since the original X100 will set you back $1,200, you can expect this limited-edition entry to have a sticker price of much more. Oh, and since it's only available in Hong Kong, you better start setting up your Ebay alerts now.

How often do you use the self timer feature on your camera? I remember the days when I used to set up my 35mm cam for that perfect shot, making sure I didn't waste any of my film. Thankfully with digital cameras, you can snap away and delete all the not-so-hot shots. Well FujiFilm will be releasing its new FinePix Z200fd in Japan on June 7, and it's said to have a neat self-timer feature.
One heart on the LCD screen means two people are sitting beside one another, two hearts means their heads are coming closer together, and three means they are in actual contact (use your imagination on that one).
Because the camera can actually focus in on objects in self-timer mode, the picture quality should be quite good. The cam also comes with a 10-megapixel sensor and a 5x optical zoom, which also makes it a pretty high class camera. Colors will include pink, silver, black/red, and black and it will be priced at $390. Stay tuned for U.S. availability.
Did you know that annual mammograms are recommended for women over the age of 40 and that more than half of U.S. women of screening age do not recognize how critical breast cancer screening is or do not have the means to get a mammogram regularly? Do something for your own health (or your mom's) this Mother's Day...
On Monday, May 7, women of screening age are invited to receive a FREE mammogram at PS 149 Sojourner Truth School, 41 West 117th Street, New York. In addition to a free mammogram, a health educator will be onsite to answer questions and provide educational materials to help encourage better breast health year round. The free mammograms are being funded by Fujifilm and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and carried out by the American-Italian Cancer Foundation. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 1-800-564-6868.
For those of us who are of age but don't live in NYC, talk to your doctor about getting a mammogram today. You can also make the pledge to get a mammogram when you're 40 (or now, if you're 40 or above) on imagesofhealth.com.
Last week, I asked you to help me find a replacement for my Canon SD600 digital camera, which my parents lost on a trip to Napa. My rules were that the camera must be slender, take great pictures, be moderately simple to use, and cost less than $600.
Vadania found a camera that just might do the trick! It's a Fujifilm Finepix 470 Digital Camera, which she's had for about 6 months and used it more than her past two cameras combined. I have to take a trip to Best Buy and check it out in person, but it looks really sleek.
