Following the success of the Fujifilm Finepix S3 Pro UVIR digital SLR, Fujifilm decided to work on a more affordable option. This effort produced the IS-1 digital camera developed for use in the law enforcement, medical/dental and science fields. The IS-1 features a nine megapixel sensor and is configured to capture infrared light. The IS-1 will be available in limited distribution for $899, starting in February 2007.
The Fujifilm Finepix A800 and Finepix A610 provide new affordable options for first time buyers or people looking for an easy to use upgrade camera. The A610 is a 6 megapixel camera and the A800 is an 8 megapixel camera. Both cameras will be available in March with the A610 costing $129 and the A800 running at $179.
Pre-CES - Pentax is "breaking the seal" on what will probably be a rash of digital camera announcements surrounding this year's CES (Consumer Electronics Show).

If you got a nice big gift card for the holidays and you're wondering what digital camera to get, here's the list of which cameras visitors to DigitalCameraReview.com are looking at most.
If you received a digital camera this holiday season, you're probably either really pumped, or not excited at all. Either way, there are plenty of next steps to take, whether that means selling the camera on ebay or diving into the owner's manual.
Fortunately, I received a Nikon D40 loaner unit right before I headed out to Christmas vacation in snowy Colorado. The recently announced 6 megapixel D40 is a light, compact digital SLR that is built for the beginning digital SLR user. A simplified user interface and simplified controls serve to not intimidate someone who might be intimidate by all the buttons. Here are my first thoughts on the camera so far.
Pentax and Hoya have announced a merger where, effective on October 1, 2007, they will be known as the Hoya Pentax HD Corporation. By joining forces, they seek to use their strengths to establish better value for the shareholders. Fortunately, it doesn't look like this involving digital cameras will actually change that much.
The Olympus FE-200 is a 6 megapixel camera with a wide angle (28mm equivalent), 5x optical zoom lens and a 2.5 inch LCD. It's quite a bit chunkier than the FE-190 that I reviewed recently, but it also has to accommodate a physically larger lens. Our full review is coming soon, but I wanted to give you a couple first impressions until it's completed.
The Olympus SP-510 UZ has a nice spec sheet - 7.1 megapixels, 10x optical zoom, 2.5 inch LCD, the ability to shoot at up to ISO 4000, and full set of exposure modes. Can it compete with the rest of the ultra-zoom market? Here are our "first thoughts" on this camera and we'll have the full review for you soon.
