Each year the consumer industry goes through phases, we know that 2010 was about 3D TV — as well this year — and we know that 2011 will also be about the tablet. However, when it comes to the camera market, then CES 2011 will show you that it will all be about superzoom, and Fujifilm and their Finepix range will be at the forefront.
The camera maker does not have the products to compete with the likes of Canon and Panasonic, but they are more affordable, and you can see this with the range of new cameras that will be shown off in Las Vegas. There are three new ranges; the first is the superzoom, with the HS20EXR, F500EXR and F550EXR making up the range. However, if you are looking for something with even more zoom, then the new range of SLR’s might appeal to you. The best thing is, they cost half as much as you would pay for a rival brand. More details from Engadget.
For those looking for something simpler then maybe you will want a point and shoot camera, and Fujifilm will have 6 new models on show at CES. These are as follows: The Z90, AV200, AX300, JV200, JX and T series, with prices ranging from $89.99 to $199.95. The Z90 will be on sale in just over two weeks, the AV200, AX300 and JV200 in February, the T200 in March and the T300 in April. Get spec and exact price details here.
The final camera that Fujifilm will be showing during the Consumer Electronics Show is the waterproof Finepix XP30. This is an updated version of the XP10 and will be GPS-enabled and will ship next month for a price of $239.95, there is to also be a new XP20, this will cost $199.99 and will be ready for shipping in March.
