RAW deal? Fuji S100fs for $533 after rebate (plus free card)

RAWzoomer fans, you may be interested in this deal at Amazon. The Fuji S100fs is offered for $585, but Fuji has just launched a $50 mail-in rebate, so after rebate, your price is $535. Plus Amazon is offering a free 4gb Kingston SDHC memory card, which is currently going for about $10. And free shipping and handling. Please note that in order to get the above, the camera must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself, not by any of the other 3rd party sellers that are also featured on Amazon.

For our newer readers, RAWzoomer is a blended term from RAWsumer and superzoom. Superzoom is self-explanatory, RAWsumer is defined (by this blog) to mean a fixed-lens digital camera that supports RAW natively or via an official firmware update.

So what about the CHKD cameras? Well, they are quasi-RAWsumers, since the changes made are not permanent, and do not come with the camera out of the box or via an official firmware update.

But this is just one of the many terms out there, the last one we saw mentioned was Creative Compacts.
