The FinePix F70EXR is Fujifilm’s first long-zoom compact digital camera featuring its EXR imaging technology, and a Fujinon 10x optical zoom, all in a compact design. The lens, developed in conjunction with Fuji’s proprietary Super CCD EXR sensor, is said to produce crisp, high resolution results throughout the focal range (27-270 mm equivalent). The camera is 22.7 mm thick.
The camera offers a radically improved flash control system, which controls the level of flash for a given exposure to produce what Fuji describes as beautifully-balanced flash illumination.
The F70 has dual image stabilization – picture stabilization automatically reduces shutter speeds to freeze action while CCD image stabilization counteracts “hand shake.”
Fuji’s latest face detection technology tracks up to 10 faces simultaneously.
Aimed at the advanced photo enthusiast looking for excellent picture quality without the expense or bulk of a DSLR system, the FinePix S200EXR combines a 14.3x manual optical zoom Fujinon lens (30.5-436 mm equivalent), with the 12 megapixel Super CCD EXR sensor found in the FinePix F200EXR.
Key features: Super CCD EXR technology; EXR Priority Mode to quickly optimize the camera’s settings – the photographer can decide which sensor setting is preferable by choosing High Resolution Priority (HR) to maximize resolution, High ISO and Low Noise Priority (SN) for high quality low-light work or D-Range Priority (DR) for the best detail with high contrast subjects.
Other features: Film Simulation to capture subtle changes in tone and colour reproduction; Face detection technology to track up to 10 faces simultaneously.
With a metal body, the Fujifilm J30 features Panorama Mode, allowing the user to capture panoramic pictures by seamless stitching three consecutive images together. The J30 also features a 12 megapixel sensor, 2.7-inch LCD screen, 3x optical zoom, new intelligent scene recognition and face detection technology with automatic red-eye removal.
The FinePix Z35 is aimed at teens and young adults. It offers a 10 megapixel sensor, a 3x optical zoom lens, a web-ready mode with visual effects as well as intelligent scene recognition and face detection technology. The camera is designed for social networking with easy photo and video sharing. Web Mode includes 12 in-camera visual effects and easy uploading to Facebook, YouTube or other sharing sites.
Fujifilm has introduced two new cameras to its popular A-Series line of easy-to-use, high quality and cost-conscious compact digital cameras. The A170 and A235 are the first A-Series models to feature Fujifilm’s proprietary intelligent scene recognition technology. ISR AUTO detects a scene without needing to pre-select the mode on the camera, recognizing six different scenes – Portrait, Landscape, Macro, Backlit Portrait, Night and Night Portrait.
The two cameras are said to perform well in low light and can shoot at up to ISO 1600.
