Fujifilm has announced two new Wi-Fi enabled cameras which will be added to its line-up: the FinePix XP200 and the S8400W. The XP200 is a new hard-as-nails all-weather offering which is waterproof to 15 m (50 ft) as well as being shockproof, dust-proof and freeze-proof, while the S8400W is a bridge camera which boasts an impressive 44x optical zoom.
Fujifilm has revealed a March release date for five new cameras, including the Wi-Fi-enabled FinePix F900EXR compact ultra-zoom – which also features a new Intelligent Hybrid AF system that's claimed to give it the world's fastest autofocus of 0.05 seconds – and the S8600 long-zoom bridge camera.
At the risk of becoming something of a tradition, Fujifilm has pulled back the curtain to reveal a new snatch of cameras for digital image technology lovers at CES 2013
to salivate over. Included in the bunch are two additions to its retro-looking X Series pro-thusiast camera range, some mighty superzooms, a pair of compacts, and a rather tough cookie.
Having already targeted pros and enthusiast with the X100
, Fujifilm is aiming for a wider market with the latest addition to its retro-styled X-Series. The XF1 is a pocket-sized digital camera with a 1.8 FUJINON lens, a 4x optical zoom and a 3-inch LCD display, all encased in an aluminum body finished with leatherette.
Like most other camera manufacturers at the moment, Fujifilm is currently somewhat partial to using the letter X in its camera names. In recent years, we've seen the company unveil the X100
, the X-S1
and most recently the X-Pro1
. Well, it's gone and done it again, with the announcement that it will soon release the Fujifilm X-E1, a retro-styled 16-megapixel mid-range mirrorless interchangeable lens digital camera.
is starting to surf a wave that could take it from a specialist manufacturing process to household product. The price of machines is coming down
and the array of objects that can be created
is going up, but it's not yet clear exactly how this potential will be realized in the consumer marketplace. One possible pathway is being explored by Fujifilm: introduce 3D printers using the established "kiosk" model that's been so successful for digital photo printing.
When Fujifilm unveiled its new line-up
ahead of CES 2012, there was a feeling among enthusiasts that the company was holding something back. Sure enough, the Japanese photography behemoth has now pulled back the curtain to reveal a new interchangeable lens digital camera system called the X-Pro1. The 16 megapixel camera will be initially joined by three prime lenses when made available next month, with more to follow later on. It features a number of new digital photography developments, including a brand new sensor, a film-like color filter array and the second generation hybrid multi viewfinder first seen in the FinePix X100
This year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is fast approaching, and the North American wing of Japanese photography giant Fujifilm is celebrating with the launch of 19 new digital cameras. Our team on the ground will be nudging through the crowds to get a closer look at some (if not all) of the new cameras on offer, but here's a quick spec overview to whet your appetite.
A new member will shortly take its place alongside the X10 retro compact
and the FinePix X100
in Fujifilm's premium X Series cameras. The X-S1 bridges the gap between compact point-and-shoot cameras and digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) models - featuring a relatively large sensor, 26x superzoom lens, built-in flash and the ability to record full high definition movies.
Fujifilm's 3D cameras have been using a glasses-free lenticular system for a while now
, but the company's 3D image viewer has had to wait until the latest version before incorporating the technology. The new FinePix REAL 3D V3 digital image viewer has also been treated to an HDMI input for direct connection to cameras like the Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W3
, big screen TVs and other 3D-enabled devices.
