Fujifilm springs into action with fresh FinePix range
Snappy snappy joy joy
Fujifilm clicked off 2012 with the release of 17 fresh FinePix digital cameras, which'll be on show at CES next week.
Here's a look at some of what's on offer.
The 16Mp Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR steps things up a notch from last year's model with a new EXR CMOS sensor, an improved electronic viewfinder and faster shoot times. There's also a longer lasting battery and an improved 3in LCD display.
Other features include a 30x optical zoom with a 35mm equivalent of 24-720mm and 1080p video capabilities.
Next up is the Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR, apparently the world's smallest snapper to pack a 20x optical zoom with a 35mm equivalent of 25-500mm. The 16Mp camera also rocks up with a 3in LCD display and handles 1080p video.
For the "style conscious" photographer, there's the 14Mp Fujifilm FinePix Z110, a compact cam with 5x optical zoom and a 2.7in LCD display. The Z110 comes in six colours and boasts a frame assist mirror lens, curved to show the full scene.
Then, perhaps for the clumsy adventurer, comes the Fujifilm FinePix XP50, a rugged all-weather compact with a rubber coating and metal grip. This 14Mp snapper boasts GPS functionality and a 5x optical zoom, a 35mm equivalent of 28-140mm. The company says this is the toughest FinePix yet, surviving various elements including water to depths of 10m, shocks to 2m, and cold weather down to -10°C.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Fujifilm FinePix SL300, a bridge camera with a 1/2.3in 14Mp CCD sensor and an ISO range of 100-6400. The SL300 rocks up with a 3in LCD display, a TTL Hot Shoe Flash and 720p video capabilities.
All models go on sale in March. Prices have yet to be confirmed. ®
