Fujifilm today [Feb 1] expanded its FinePix lineup with 13 new point-and-shoot cameras, including two models that use the company's innovative EXR sensor and the first 30X optical-zoom fixed-lens still camera.



The EXR sensor/processor combo debuted last year with the Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR, and generally produced great low-light, no-flash shots for a point-and-shoot camera, as well as the ability to tweak the sensor's shooting modes manually.

Later in 2009, the EXR sensor found its way into two more Fujifilm cameras: the 18X optical zoom FinePix S200EXR and the pocketable 10X optical-zoom FinePix F70EXR.

Fujifilm announced two new EXR cameras today--a new pocket megazoom and a touchscreen model--and both will purportedly be able to help your dog or cat solve their identity crises.

Pocket Megazoom FinePix F80EXR and Stylish FinePix Z700EXR

The 12-megapixel FinePix F80EXR offers a 10X optical-zoom lens (27mm to 270mm), despite being less than an inch thick. In-camera features include dual image stabilization (the camera jacks up its shutter speed and shifts the sensor to accomodate shaky hands); an EXR sensor with the same Pro Focus and Pro Low-Light modes as are found on the S200EXR and the F70EXR; ISO equivalency settings up to 12800; 720p high-definition video recording with HDMI-out; a facial recognition and tagging feature; and a 3-inch-diagonal LCD screen.

The more-fashion-centric FinePix Z700EXR is a shade less than 0.7 inches deep, boasting a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a 5X optical-zoom lens (no wide-angle, though: 36mm to 180mm), the same dual-stabilization tandem, 720p high-definition video recording, facial recognition/tagging, and a sliding lens-cover panel that powers the camera on or off.
