[CES 2011] Fujifilm unleashes a storm of new Camera at CES 2011 with eleven models
We had yet to hear about Japanese camera manufacturers announcing something at CES, and well it seems that Fujifilm started the dance by announcing no less than eleven new models.
The HS20EXR is Fujifilm’s flagship model and comes as a “Bridge”. This 16Mpix Camera comes with an improved dual IS, TTL Flash metering, HD (1080p) video recording, EXR technology, RAW Support, as well as a high-speed movies mode going up to 320fps.
Maybe the most interesting, as far as I am concerned, of all models introduced at CES. The F550EXR is a very capable point & shoot with a 16Mpix EXR CMOS and a nice 3” LCD monitor, capable of shooting photos at 11fps and shooting video in Full HD. This model also includes RAW file capture, and a nice motion panorama 360-degree shooting mode. But what I like the most on this F550EXR is its convenient GPS module allowing you to geo-tag each and any one of your photos.
FinePix S3400 and S2950
Both models come with a 14Mpix sensor, a 3” LCD monitor, 720p video mode with AF, HDMI out, Smile and Blink Detection, Face Recognition, ISO 6400 Max, and Dual IS, but only the S3400 comes with a 28x optical zoom while the S2950 comes with only 18x optical zoom.
FinePix XP20 and XP30
Fujifilm’s only Adventureproof cameras that are Shockproof, Waterproof and Dust/Freezeproof available at CES this year. Both models come with a 14Mpix sensor, a 5x Optical Zoom, Tracking AF, CCD Shift Image IS, Motion Panorama, 720p video and capable to withstand falls from up to 1.5 meters high, water 5 meters down, cold to -10°C and dust/sandproof. If both models are technically similar, only the X30 comes with a GPS.
The most stylish of them all, the Z90 is a compact 14Mpix Camera with a 720p video mode, Motion Panorama mode, a 5x Optical Zoom, Tracking AF, Digital IS and a nice little 3” touchscreen.
The T200 is an entry-level 14Mpix Camera with a 10x optical Zoom, 720p video, Motion Panorama Dual IS and a very handy high contrast 2.7” LCD screen.
FinePix JX300 and JV200
Both cameras come with a 14Mpix sensor, but only the JX300 features a 5x optical zoom, while its little brother the JV200 only comes with a 3x optical one. Both feature a 720p video mode, a Digital IS, Face detection, with Smile and Blink detection.
FinePix AX3000 and AV230
The last two models introduced at CES 2011 are entry-level cameras with a 14Mpix sensor, 720p video mode, Motion Panorama Mode, Face Detection with Smile and Blink Detection, Intelligent Scene Recognition and Digital Image Stabilization, a High Contrast 2.7-inch LCD Screen, a 5x Fujinon Optical Zoom Lens for the AX300 and 3x for the AV230.
But maybe the most interesting aspect of these two models is their need of only 2 AA batteries widely available even in the most remote village that you may find.
