Fujifilm unveils F850EXR and F900EXR ultra-zoom compact cameras

Fujifilm has unveiled two new additions to its F-series compact camera line, the F850EXR and the F900EXR. Both cameras bring long zoom to the table, as well as lightweight, easily-pocketable compact designs, with each being hailed as a travel camera for the on-the-go consumer. We have pictures of both models after the jump.

First up is the F850EXR, which features a 16-megapixel EXR-CMOS sensor, EXR Processor II, and 20x optical zoom. With the EXR Processor II, which is said to have double the processing speed of the first gen processor, the F850EXR has a focus speed of 0.21 seconds, startup time of 1.1 seconds, and 0.5 second shot interval. Videos can be recorded in full HD at 60fps via a dedicated recording button. Sound is recorded in stereo via an integrated stereo mic.

Meanwhile, the F900EXR has some upgrades over the 850, offering a 16-megapixel EXR-CMOS II backside illuminated sensor and EXR Processor II, which offers a 1.1 second startup speeds and 0.5 shot interval. The F900EXR offers Phase Detection auto focus as part of the Intelligent Hybrid AF system, allowing for focus speeds of only 0.5 seconds.

One of the 900 model's best features is its support for wireless photo transfer to mobile devices and computers. Both PC software and mobile apps are available for photo backup syncing to devices. Image recording is similar to the 850, offering full HD video at 60fps utilizing Phase Detection AF and a dedicated recording button. For now, there's no word on when we'll see these two models on store shelves.
