A Look at This Year's Cameras
With the 2009 PMA Show less than a month away the new product intros are happening fast and furious. Over the next few weeks we’ll be providing a Sneak Peek at some of the new products expected to be making news on the show floor. While there’s still quite a bit of news under wraps (NDA), what we can tell you for this week is that you’ll see piles of new point-and-shoot cameras at this year’s show.
Fuji has announced the new F200EXR – a 12MP point-and-shoot that features Fuji’s new Super CCD EXR. Fuji actually announced this technology at the 2008 photokina show and the F200 is the first camera utilizing it. The technology is based on Fuji previous Super CCD tech and is designed as a 'three in one' sensor combining the benefits of high resolution, high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. Fuji tells us that Super CCD EXR uses a new color filter array and has the ability to process half the pixels separately. MSRP $399.
Nikon, a company some said was moving R&D away from the point-and-shoot market is doing a real good impersonation of a company that is moving R&D into this category as they have announced 8 new CoolPix models that will be on display at PMA.
