If you want the flexibility of a nice lens but don't want to bother with
an SLR, then the new HS10 camera is for you. It's a fixed-lens camera
with a monster 30x manual optical zoom on the lens.<
The photo sensor is Fuji's new BSI-CMOS, which comes in at 10-megapixels
and promises better low-light performance. In addition to taking JPEG
and RAW images, the camera can also record Full HD 1080p video. The
video is recorded in .mov and compressed in H.264. The camera's video
mode also includes something called High Speed Movie mode, where you
can select ultra high frame rates (60, 120, 240, 480 or even 1000 fps).
In addition to all that, the camera can go into a 7 picture burst mode
(10fps video) where it 'records/shoots' in the full RAW resolution
(3,648 x 2,736).ย As for that big 30x lens on the front, Fuji claims
its the world's first to be fitted on a fixed-lens camera. The camera
has a SD card slot, like you'd expect.
In addition to the flagship HS10 camera, Fuji also showed off three
others new fixed-lens SLR-like cameras, including the S1800 and S2550HD,
a pair of 12-megapixel cameras with 18x optical zoom. In addition to
those two, the F80EXR features a 10x zoom and pet face detection .
The HS10 will cost $500 and will be out in April. The smaller ones will
range in price from $250 to $300 and should be out in the same
timeframe.Read | Or scroll down for further on topic reading.
