Fujifilm has an absolute huge lineup of new digital cameras ready for this year's International CES, which we promise to talk about in detail over the next couple of days, starting with the new FinePix HS20EXR bridge, an advanced function SLR-styled long-zoom imager.
A successor to the company's FinePix HS10EXR, the new HS20EXR model comes equipped with a redesigned 16 MegaPixel EXR-CMOS sensor and a new EXR Processor, that manage to deliver not only enhanced processing speeds, but also a better behavior in low-light conditions.
The new digital camera from Fujifilm also comes equipped with a Fujinon lens delivering a 30x zoom range covering focal lengths from a super-wide 24-720mm (35mm equivalent), while the operation of the manual zoom system has also been seriously streamlined.
Beside being able to take very good quality photos, the Fujifilm camera is capable of capturing movies in true, full 1080p HD quality, the video recordings being saved in .MOV format using H.264 high profile compression for smaller file sizes without sacrificing quality.
It's also very interesting to mention that the new camera offers several useful High Speed Movie options, which include capture at 320 fps.
Also worth mentioning is the fact that the digital camera comes equipped with a tilting 3.0-inch high contrast LCD with a electronic viewfinder featuring a “heads up” sensor that automatically changes from LCD to EVF.
The FinePix HS20EXR also offers a host of additional features, such as RAW / RAW+JPEG Shooting, Motion Panorama 360° (the sensor extends the sweep range to 360 degrees, while shots can also be taken vertically), a Purple Fringing Reducer/Corner Resolution Enhancer, Super Intelligent Flash, Multi-Bracketing, as well as Face Detection and Automatic Red-eye Removal.
The FinePix HS20EXR will all be available in late March 2011 and will be priced at $499.95, which seems to be a fair-enough price point, given the enhanced features and advanced specs this new bridge camera from Fuji has in store.
