Fuji announced three new cameras today. The first is an entry level DSLRs with the 9 million pixel FinePix S9000 Zoom. It has a 10.7x optical zoom (28-300mm). Unfortunately it does not come with image stabilization which might give rise to slightly blurry images at maximum zoom. The ISO ranges from 80 to 1600, and a tiltable 1.8-inch LCD, plus a 640 x 480 movie mode. Fuji sees the S9000 Zoom as the point where compact and DSLRs meet as it offers the resolution and control of an SLR, while at the same time offering functions associated with a compact camera. Other features include a real time histogram, xD-Picture Card, CompactFlash and Microdrive compatibility, hotshoe and RAW format.
The second is an S series camera, the FinePix S5200 Zoom. The 5.1 megapixel mini SLR-style camera has a 10x optical zoom and Anti Blur mode which is apparently more effective that image stabilization, ISO up to 1600 and a 5th generation of Super CCD HR sensor. It also offers full manual control, VGA movie mode and RAW image capture. You will be able to get this camera in September.
Finally, there is the new E series compact that offers 9 million effective pixels, the E900. Wow, 9MP, that is amazing. It has a 5th generation Super CCD HR, Real Photo Technology which is supposed to reduce noise at high sensitivity settings, ISO 80 - 800, 4x optical zoom (32 - 128mm equiv.) and boasts a 2-inch LCD. It also offers full manual control and RAW capture.
More details to come on pricing and availability.
