Chris King headsets are generally considered the best but pricey. Cane Creek for a middle-of-the-road and FSA as the low end. The two latter brands have some overlap with respect to quality. I would recommend Can Creek's 110 series for what you need. Make sure you fully understand what type of headset you need to fit your frame.

You'll need any brand bottom bracket that is Hollowtech II compatible, not necessarily the Shimano BBR60. Most Fuji bikes I have seen already use Shimano components so you should be good to go. I use a third-party ceramic set that is pricey, but incredibly smooth and will outlast any non ceramic set on the market. Make sure you know what type of bottom bracket your frame requires (press-fit, English BB68, etc).
It is compatible with adapters available from several manufactures. FSA, Wheels Manufacturing, Praxxis, and SRAM make adapters. That being said, I have heard several complaints from people using adapters that had creaking issues while under power. I do not know which brands (frame, adapter, cranks set combination) they were using.
Yes. the XX50 designation in Shimano Dura Ace and Ultegra equipment lines designates it as compact. If it ends XX00 it is standard, and XX03 means it is a triple.
If you want to stay with Dura Ace cranksets, you'll need to go to 7950 to get a compact. The 7800 series only featured standard double and triple cranksets. If you are still running a 9 speed cassette, you'll need to use a 10 speed chain in order for the new chain rings to upshift properly. Compact chainring are not backwards compatible as the bolt circle for standard is larger than the small chain ring of a compact set. Most SRAM and FSA compact cranksets are compatible with 9 and 10 speed Shimano components.
@ Dusty. Ok, I just watched the video you posted and it looks good. My issue is that, as a fly fisherman, some of the water in locations I fish run the risk of contaminated run off. So, even though this kills any living contaminants, it really doesn't remove harmful pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals I don't want to drink. Even the pre-filter isn't rated for those contaminants. Still a good design. I have one of Camelback LED lids on my wide mouth Nalgene. Makes a good "ambience" tent light for those times my girlfriend isn't too tired. :)
I could have made it review but since I haven't purchased it, my comments wouldn't really qualify for that category and I would have been required to rate it with a number of stars. Then again, your answer isn't really an answer, but a comment with a question mark at the end. In any case, my intended comment is for the good people of Camelback and, while I own many of their products, I felt this particular one had a significant flaw.
I was interested in buying this bottle but was turned off by the need for the CR123 batteries. I have made the switch to rechargeable batteries and have a good setup for AA and AAA. Last thing I need is another battery type, especially one so expensive and not readily available. Camelback take note! I'll make the leap once you get away from needing 6 volts to run the UV light and can use rechargeable AA or AAA. Hey 3 AAA are 4.5 volts and almost the same size as 2 CR123s.
