I have a slightly older Finepix V10, and it uses a micro-usb cable,
same as our new Pentax DSLR we splurged on  as a Christmas gift for
the two us in Dec.

I went with the Finepix for better low light performance when I
purchased it, as p&s cameras always have anemic flash.  I like it a
lot, just wish it had a bit better macro performance.  It does rip
through batteries (proprietary) so I bought a couple of higher maH
replacements on fleabay last longer.
