Fuji has announced a replacement camera for its popular F550 EXR compact superzoom digital camera; the Fujifilm Finepix F600 EXR. Fuji’s newest compact superzoom features a ½" 16MP back-illuminated EXR CMOS sensor, a 3.0” 460,000-dot LCD and a narrow profile, 24-360mm equivalent zoom lens.
Back in the early days of photography, panoramic photographs, which by definition are wide-field, unbroken sweeps of scenery, were captured using cameras with pivoting lens turrets that “painted” the image across a wide sheet of film as the lens rotated from left to right (or vice versa).
Sony has announced a new point and shoot, the DSC-TX55 Cyber-shot. It’s loaded with a 16.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and a host of other new features. Thin enough to slip into a shirt pocket, the DSC-TX55 is only 12.2mm thick.
One of the fun aspects of photography—once you’ve learned how to use all the bells and whistles with which your camera is bedecked—is to push beyond the borders of what you already know about taking pictures. The e-filming 360 Digital Drive Panorama Base/PS-30B allows you to literally go beyond the borders of your camera’s native aspect ratio by enabling you to capture panoramic photographs of up to 360°.
