Fujifilm Z series gets new EXR sensor and more

Fujifilm finished its camera intros on Wednesday with two designer Z series cameras and one budget model. At the front, the Z800EXR uses a 12-megapixel version of the second generation EXR sensor and can flip between phase detection and contrast autofocusing to lock on its subject faster than usual regardless of the light conditions. The gyro sensor of the F300EXR also carries over to reduce blur in low-light shots.

As a more mainstream camera than its newest EXR sibling, the Z800EXR has a more modest 5X internal lens and uses a 3.5-inch touchscreen for its control. It also captures video at 720p and supports face recognition and motion-created panoramas. Fujifilm hopes to have the camera in stores by the end of August for $230.

The Z80 is a budget alternative that has a slim body of its own but a conventional 14-megapixel sensor and button controls. It too shoots 720p, but it doesn't have any definite US release plans as Fujifilm hasn't given it a price or ship date for the country.

One last camera, the JX280, puts the Z80's features in a more conventional design with an extending barrel for the 28-140mm equivalent lens. Deliveries arrive in August at $150.
