Fujifilm launched four new ultraslim cameras in preparation for this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The brand new T-series features the FinePix T200 and T300, while the JX300 and JX350 were introduced as updates to last year's JX200 and JX250. All four models feature an incredibly thin 18.5mm profile and a number of user friendly features.
The JX350 is arguably the most powerful of the four new models, sporting a 16-megapixel CCD sensor, as opposed to the 14-megapixel CCD in the other three cameras. The T300 has a different advantage in hardware: its 3-inch LCD is a bit larger than the 2.7-inch screen on the JX-series and T200. All four cameras offer a long zoom, though the 10x optical zoom lens on the new T series is a bit more impressive than the JX cams' 5x zoom.
The JX300 will be the first to hit store shelves, with an estimated ship date of mid-February for an MSRP of $129.95. It will be followed in March by the T200 for an MSRP of $179.95. The other two models are expected to be available in April: the T300 for an MSRP of $199.95 and the JX350 for an MSRP of $159.95.
More details are available on the spec sheets for the T300, T200, JX350, and JX300 or in the official press release below. You can read about all of Fujifilm's other announcements on our CES landing page.
Valhalla, N.Y., January 5, 2011 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the introduction of a new T-Series line of ultra-compact cameras, with the FinePix T200 and T300. These slim cameras have FUJINON 10x long-zoom lenses, and are 18.5mm thin. Both cameras offer consumers the perfect fit: a complete set of advanced features, a size to fit in any pocket or small bag, and a price to fit their budgets.
“With the FinePix T200 and T300, we give our customers a portable long zoom digital camera that’s small in design, but big in features,” said David Troy, director of marketing, Digital Cameras, Electronic Imaging Division, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “When you combine the long zoom with features such as sensor shift Image Stabilization and HD movie capture, you get cameras that are packed with power.”
The FinePix T200 and T300 offer a 14-MegaPixel CCD, but the T300 has a 3.0” high-resolution (230K pixels) LCD, while the T200 has a 2.7” high-resolution (230K) LCD. Equally impressive is the FUJINON 10x optical zoom lens, which stretches from 28-280mm (35mm equivalent). This powerful mix of features will ensure users capture great images, whether they are wide-angle landscapes or closely cropped portraits with details. The T200 will be available in Gunmetal and the T300 will be available in Black, both with brushed metal chassis with hairline finish.
