Fujifilm A700 Camera
Having already addressed the DSLR market in advance of the Photokina expo with its S9100 model, Fujifilm is now turning to its entry-level A series of cameras. The new FinePix A700 is the first camera with a 7.3-megapixel sensor, according to the company. While cameras with higher-resolution sensors exist, the A700's sensor offers it a slight quality advantage over 7.1- and 7.2-megapixel models from other manufacturers without adding to the price. Fujifilm has also added 12MB of internal memory alongside the standard 3X optical zoom and 2.4-inch LCD. Significantly, the A700 will retail for $199 when it ships to the US in early October, making it one of the least expensive 7-megapixel cameras available.
