Three more Fujifilm compacts

The Others


The Fujifilm F50fd is an advanced high end compact. This "12 megapixel powerhouse", as reffered to in the PR, replaces the F31fd, a six megapixel camera praised by reviewers for its great high ISO performance.


The new camera features ISO sensitivity up to 6400 on low resolutions and 1600 at full image size, 3X zoom lens with CCD-shift optical image stabilization and an improved face detection engine. It uses a high resolution (230k pixel) 2.7" wide screen and should retail at around $300.

If this is a bit too much for your needs you can go for the $200 entry level FinePix A920. This affordable model offers a 4X zoom lens, 9 megapixel sensor, a 115k pixel 2.7" screen.

The video mode is a bit dissapointing, with a mere 320x240 at 30 FPS.

Finally, there's the F480, an interesting 8 megapixel camera with a wide angle 4X lens (28mm-112mm eqiv.). The all black finish looks elegant, and the $179.95 price tag is nice too.


Sadly, the video mode is just QVGA at 30 FPS. Otherwise, it seems like a very nice, well balanced and well priced camera.

All three cameras support both SDHC and xD cards. They will be available in September.
