It's available for only US$224 too. Remember the crazy prices people were paying for second hand F31fds for years after they were discontinued?

Fujifilm announced the F1000EXR a week ago. The only new thing I can see in it is wifi.

It looks like the F1000EXR may only be released in Japan like the Z2000EXR was. Maybe Fuji is giving up on foreign markets like Casio did.

So perhaps a grey market F1000EXR is what your brother wants VPic

But the closest equivalent to the F31fd today is the Sony RX100.

The 800 and 900 both have wifi ...

Looks like they added remote control over wifi (a very cool feature) and 1080/60p (a cool feature but the video is so weak in these cameras that I hardly see it helping much.)
