Whoa. You go to bed in a world without many Fujifilm cameras and wake up in a world blessed with a dozen new ones! We begin with the interesting ones – basically the FinePix XP10 rugged model, shown above, and the hubristic HS10, a 30X optical zoom wannabe D-SLR camera that shoots in HD. Otherwise you’re looking at a long, dark spring ahead. As for the rest of these meh-too cameras… → Read More
Hmmm, unannounced digital cameras. Got to love the Internet. Anyway, LetsGoDigital dug up details about four tasty FujiFilm FinePix cameras. These aren’t just Wal-Mart specials, either. Oh no, take notice, these boys are nice, especially the S2500HD with an 18x optical zoom and 720p recording mode. Hit the jump for pics and details. → Read More
Time published a bunch of info about Fujifilm’s upcoming 3D consumer camera system early last week. The mag talked about how how the FinePix Real 3D W1 the next best thing, which I claimed was doubtful considering its price, but one small detail was left out: this camera can also record 3D movies. That’s sweet.
Update: More pics of the camera and system after the jump. → Read More
Man alive! You think the American economy is in rough shape? Japan’s economy shrank 12.7 percent from October to December of last year, the sharpest fall since the end of World War II. Combine that with the unusually strong Japanese Yen, which makes Japanese products, like the new Fuji FinePix Z30, FinePix J20fd and J250, more expensive in foreign (non-Japanese) markets, and you’ll get a sense of… → Read More
Fuji’s highly anticipated follow up to the F30, the F200EXR, is available now for pre-order from Amazon. Sure, it’s a $400 point and shoot, but if it’s even marginally better than the F30 then we’re all in for a treat. Check out test shots here. Ideally, we’d really like to see these sample images at 100 percent with crops at ISO 800 and 1600 to see what it’s really capable of. But until we have… → Read More

Fuji’s FinePix F31FD helps focus your pictures on what’s usually the most important part of the shot, the face. The point-and-shoot has a hardware face detector that identifies and optimizes the shot within 0.05 seconds, much faster than traditional cameras. The camera also has a 3x optical zoom, a 2.5-inch LCD, and 30 FPS video capture. Nothing extraordinary except for the facial… → Read More
