The Pentax Optio I10 features a wide angle, 5X optical zoom lens (28mm-140mm equivalent), a 12.1 megapixel high resolution CCD sensor, a 2.7 inch widescreen LCD, and HD video capture at 720p and 30 FPS.
Fujifilm will soon release a new series of FinePix cameras and adds a new JX-model to the existing assortment. Our source provided detailed information about the upcoming Fujifilm FinePix JX530 camera. The Fujifilm JX530 is packed with interesting features and is aimed at consumers who want to have a entry-level camera but without losing any quality. The core of the Fuji FinePix JX530 is a 14 Megapixel image sensor and a wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens. Its compact size makes you slip the JX530 camera into your pocket or bay and take it wherever you go. To bad the Fujifilm FinePix JX530 is not offering the effective Dual Image stabilization technique but instead only a digital version.
According our ‘under-cover’ source there is new (shelter) Fujifilm FinePix megazoom camera out there. We are talking about the new Fujifilm FinePix S1600 camera, a 12.2 effective Megapixel bridge camera. Cameras like this suppose to be Fujifilm’s solution for the popular DSLR and system cameras and are more advanced than the average point-and-shoot camera but less technical than SLR cameras. The Fujifilm S1600 features manually adjustable controls but unlike the DSLR or (Micro Four Thirds) system cameras the camera has a single fixed lens. It makes the Fujifilm FinePix S1600 less all-round, but also less expensive. Availability and price will be updated soon.
