The Fujifilm J10 and J50 are the latest affordable offerings from the manufacturer, sporting a familiar set of features with a few distinguishing touches. Though the midnight announcement from Fuji doesn't specify, it looks like these cameras will be taking up the market segment formerly met by the company's A-series offerings.
In a press release today, Canon announced the launch of a new consumer-level DSLR, the EOS 450D or Digital Rebel XSi. The new camera, which features a 12.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC III processing, and live view, looks, from all indications, to make some significant improvements over the current Rebel XTi.
Canon announced three replacements in its popular PowerShot A series with the release of the new PowerShot A470, A580, and A590 IS. The budget-minded A470 brings an impressive features-to-price ratio, and the A580 and A590 IS provide key updates to the extremely popular A560 and A570 IS PowerShot models.
In the DigitalCameraReview.com forums last week, one of our members posted about stumbling upon a one-off Canon SD model on Target.com. As it turns out, the PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH that leaked out on the retailer's site was actually one of a batch of pre-PMA releases from Canon announced late this evening.
Pentax made official what many have suspected for several months today, with the release of its new K20D and K200D digital SLRs. The K20D appears to offer some substantial improvements over the popular K10D semi-pro model - most notably, a 14.6 megapixel CMOS sensor and a live view system. The K200D adds another rung to Pentax's entry-level ladder, building on the 10.2 megapixel sensor technology and many basic features of the K10D, but in a lighter and more compact K100-sized package.
Working in tandem with its new DSLR releases, Pentax has announced the addition of five new DA-series lenses to its lineup. New glass includes two additions to the DA* line of high-end lenses, a new limited macro lens, and an improved version of the company's 18-55mm kit lens.
The 8 megapixel Pentax Optio M50, 12 megapixel Optio S12, and 8 megapixel Optio E50, in addition to the previously announced Optio A40, should all begin finding their way to store shelves in the coming months.
The Sony T200 continues to be one of the most popular, most searched for cameras out there, but in an announcement this afternoon Sony indicated its intention to replace the device with a new model, the Cyber-shot DSC-T300. Baseline specs for the T300 are similar to its predecessor: 10.1 megapixel sensor (upgraded from 8.1), a 5x Carl Zeiss zoom, and Super SteadyShot mechanical image stabilization. Of course, much of the draw for this camera will undoubtedly focus on the fact that the T300 also keeps the T200's 3.5-inch touch screen.
We barely finished reviewing Sony's DSC-H3 pocket ultra-zoom before word of its replacement, in the form of the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H10, came down from the manufacturer. The new model comes dressed with same 10x Carl Zeiss zoom lens, long-range flash, and 8.1 megapixel sensor of its predecessor; the only noted physical modification, in fact, is the H10's move to a 3-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus screen.
In anticipation of PMA, Sony unveiled a complete reworking of its Cyber-shot W series, showing off the new W120, W130, W150, and W170. Providng replacements to Sony's popular W55, W80, and W90 models, the new gear promises more entry- and mid-level shooting power for the company's broadest camera series.
Sony's entry-level S series of compacts received some reworking today with the introduction of the 7.2 megapixel DSC-S750 and 8.1 megapixel DSC-S780. Both models feature a 3x zoom, a 2.5-inch LCD, and a new li-ion power system promising up to 280 shots per charge.
