Fujifilm F37 J38 A170 A220
Fujifilm wrapped up its camera introductions with four more economic FinePix models, including an update to its fashion-oriented compacts. The F37 is a typical 10-megapixel, 3X zoom camera but has a very rounded body and the pick of multiple colors, including two-tone black/red and pink/white versions. It carries full scene detection and face detection and records movies in VGA. Deliveries start in August for $150.
The J38 has a plainer body but is technically slightly superior to the F37, with a 12-megapixel sensor and ISO 3,200 sensitivity when the resolution is dropped to 3 megapixels. Scene recognition and face detection are also part of the package, which is due in late August for $130.
At the very start of Fujifilm's line, the 10-megapixel A170 and 12-megapixel A220 have similar features to the F37 but run on AA batteries instead of lithium-ion packs. Resolution is the only difference between the two A series cameras, which debut first with the A170 shipping by the end of this month for $90 and the A220 appearing in mid-August for $100.
