...that is what Consumer Reports refers to this camera by Fuji. My sister and her husband were seeking a point & shoot digital camera for business-use, so I checked CR and found this Fuji to be one of their "quick recommendations" (and they purchased the camera). I was impressed with CR's take on this camera.
The features include image stablization, wide-angle zoom, manual controls (if you choose to get creative with your photo-taking) and a video recorder with zoom capabilities. Note that the camera is not lightweight but neither are digital SLR cameras.
Best of all is the price is far more affordable than a digital SLR. The link I provided to the camera takes you to Amazon where you can also read the reviews from owners of this camera. Feedback is a good reference before making a purchase, particularly on equipment, like a camera.
I wanted to share this in the event anyone is shopping for a camera or is in need of holiday gift ideas.
