A new crop of digital cameras. Olympus & FujiFilm

Techstination feature for Wednesday, February 23, 2011

   A new crop of digital cameras.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp,  a report on gadgets and gear.    This is the time of year when camera makers announce lots of new models.    Among some of the standouts…the Olympus SZ10, a 14 megapixel camera with an 18 times optical zoom and 3D capability as well.   Technical administrator Rick Sasserath…

Our 3D mode enables you to take two shots, merge them together inside the camera .”

  Using a single lens and sensor for 3D differs from the approach taken by FujiFilm with its 3D cameras.  It has also announced a unique, elegantly designed, new prosumer type of camera… the FinePix X100.  It features a 23 millimeter, fast lens…no zoom…and DSLR sized APS-C sensor. Marketing director Kayce Baker…

“The minute you get into the larger sensors,  you’re going to start getting a lot cleaner, a lot sharper, a lot higher quality image.

The FinePix X100 arrives next month.  You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
