The Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR boasts a sensor that deals with light and colour in a clever new way, while the Z20 and waterproof Z33 are just colourful
This weekend saw the start of the annual Focus on Imaging photography show in Birmingham's NEC, where bearded chaps with shiny pates and skinny-trewed art students with glossy fringes jealously mingled, feverishly fingering the latest camera goodies. Among those goodies were a selection of new models from Fujifilm: the FinePix F200EXR, Z30 and Z33.
The F200EXR is named and noted for its interesting new 1/1.6-in Super CCD EXR sensor. Well, interesting if you like that sort of thing. It's all about the layout of light-collecting diodes inside this 12-megapixel point-and-shoot, which can be re-tasked for different lighting conditions.
On inspecting the F200, we notice that its frame is near-identical to the Fujifilm FinePix F100fd. It shares the F100's 28mm wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens, as well as face detection 3.0 and a 76mm (3-inch) screen.
We also met the colourful 10-megapixel Z30 and Z33. Click through the photos to see the water-related difference between the two and meet the new cameras in the flesh, complete with a higher class of hand modelling than you'd normally see here at Crave.
