Fujifilm has also released details of a new ‘E’ series of ‘no-nonsense’ cameras characterised by ‘wide zooms, large LCD screens and a competitive price’. Leading this series is the 6.3 megapixel FinePix E550 Zoom, which features a 4x zoom lens with and equivalent focal length of 32.5-130mm in 35mm format and a sturdy metal case with large 2.0-inch LCD monitor. The E550 Zoom can be used as a snapshot camera but also supports aperture priority, shutter priority and manual exposure modes and includes RAW file capture as well as the regular JPEG file format. Its sensitivity settings range from ISO 80 to ISO800 and it supports VGA video capture at 30 frames/second with sound. Power is supplied by two AA batteries and images are stored on an xD-Picture Card.
The FinePix S3000 Zoom will also be replaced by a new model, the FinePix S3500 Zoom, which also boasts a conventional 4-megapixel CCD sensor but has a 6x optical zoom lens. A compact, SLR-style body with a silver metallic finish and four scene mode settings combine with a switchable LCD/EVF display system and multi-mode flash to make this model attractive to a wide range of users.
Full details of the new cameras will be available from www.fujifilm.com.au close to the local release date for the new models, which is likely to be in the last quarter of this year.
