<p>Here comes the rest of the interesting cameras. First up is the cheap superzooms.</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1294234439.usr15670.jpg" /></p><p>The <strong>Finepix S2950</strong>, <strong>S3200</strong>, and <strong>S4000</strong>&nbsp;are all pretty similar cameras. All feature the same 14 megapixel CCD, sensor-shift image stabilisation, full manual controls, 3" LCD screens with 200k dot EVFs, 720p videos, and AA batteries for the power source. The main difference is in the lens; the <strong>S2950</strong>&nbsp;has a 18x 28-504mm equivalent f/3.1-5.6 lens, the <strong>S3200</strong>&nbsp;has a 24x 24-576mm equivalent f/3.1-5.9 lens (and adds face recognition), and the <strong>S4000</strong>&nbsp;has a 30x 24-720mm equivalent f/3.1-5.9 lens, and has a 3" HVGA LCD instead of a QVGA screen. The prices are about US$230, US$250 and US$280 respectively, and availability is slated in March.</p><p><a href="http://www.dcresource.com/news/newsitem.php?id=4229" target="_blank">Fujifilm Finepix S2950/S3200/S4000</a></p><p>Next up is Fujifilm's rugged entries: the <strong>Finepix XP20</strong> and <strong>XP30</strong>. Again, both are similar cameras, with 14 megapixel CCDs, 5x 28-140mm equivalent f/3.9-4.9 zoom lenses, sensor-shift image stabilisation, 2.7" QVGA LCDs, bodies that are waterproof to 16.5 feet, shockproof to 5 feet, and the ability to survive -10 C temperatures. The <strong>XP30</strong>&nbsp;also adds a GPS. The former will cost about US$200, the latter US$240, and again, are expected in March.
