Fujifilm has announced a new range of super-zoom bridge cameras in the company's S-Series line-up at CES 2011, including the new FinePix S3200, S3300, S3400 and S4000, and the 18x FinePix S2950. All five cameras have 14-megapixel CCDs, 3-inch preview displays and can record 720p 30fps HD video.
Welcome back after an extended holiday weekend! Many of you've got your new Android smartphones and giant televisions and weirdo oddities under your belt (or maybe you had even more fun by buying those things as presents) and you've come back, hungry for some tech news! Well you're in luck, especially if you DIDN'T pick up your device of choice yet, especially if you live in Korea (where you'll find the LG LU3000, faster than Galaxy S, - that is of course if you dismiss the fact that you might be going to war soon,) in Japan (where Sharp is very soon releasing their fabulous Galapagos tablets,) or the USA (where you can get a FREE G2.) Of course, if you're in Taiwan this week, you'll probably flip out over a ASUS Eee Note EA-800, and if you're in the USA... well... how about a pulse rifle? Or I bet you're on the lookout for a SlashGear Cyber Monday Round Up?! All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-up!
Photokina 2010 is upon us, so expect a flood of new digital cameras like Fujifilm's FinePix X100. The new compact camera delivers some seriously delectable retro style, with a 12.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor wrapped up inside, a Fujinon 23mm fixed focal length lens and - perhaps most interestingly - Fujifilm's new Hybrid Viewfinder.
You really can't get away from the 3D drive anymore. You know you can't when it hits the toy market. And that just means they're getting the technology into the mind state of our younger generation. Good plan, 3D industry. Good plan. In any event, Takara Tomy has just announced the 3D Shot Cam, and it's specifically designed to be a cheap option for all the kids out there, age 12 and older.
Fujifilm has gone official today with its latest 3D digital camera called the W3. The new W3 is smaller and lighter than the first 3D camera from Fuji. The new camera has a bigger and brighter screen than its predecessor, stereo sound recording, and it records 3D HD video.
The first 3D camera that we have seen and talked about was the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D camera. The camera first turned up back in July of 2009 and was pegged at a retail price of $600. The special camera uses two lenses to capture 3D images.
FujiFilm wants to make sure that when you buy their latest point-and-shoot, the Z700, that you're completely covered. You know, in the "detect this" department. After all, what good is a camera that can only detect red eye? Or only detect faces? All of that's in the past. Well, welcome to 2010, where the next big thing is . . . Pet detection!
PMA 2010 is almost upon us, and Fujifilm are celebrating the annual photography expo by launching over a dozen new models in one fell swoop. The cameras range from a sub-$100 12-megapixel point and shoot, the Fujifilm FinePix AV100, and climb all the way to the megazoom FinePix HS10 with 1080p, 1,000fps Super High Speed movie mode and $499.95 price tag. More details after the cut.
One of the things that is better about some point and shoot cameras than many DSLR cameras is that the cheaper point and shoot cams often have longer zoom ranges than the DSLR. That is without having to spend lots of cash on a telephoto lens for the DSLR anyway. Many of the new point and shoots put huge zoom levels in the smaller point-and-shoot package.
