With great choice comes great confusion, and choosing the right camera can be a daunting task. Since the modern day photographer faces a surfeit of cameras, one is often faced with dilemmas like; what type of camera to go for? Or is it time to upgrade to a newer model? If you are confused whether you should purchase a DSLR or a less complicated point and shooter, then ask yourself three question:
- What is your budget?
- What is your purpose for the camera?
- Are you serious about learning new photography skills?
If you shudder at going fully manual then a prosumer camera is recommended. Luckily, with CES 2012 less than a week away, you will be spoiled with choice. One such option could be the Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR, which is a 16-megapixel superzoom/bridge camera with 30x optical zoom, Full HD movie recording and even raw image capture.
A successor to the HS20EXR, the HS30EXR comes equipped with an EXR-CMOS sensor, a 920,000-dot electronic viewfinder and a tilting, 460,000-dot LCD screen,Hot shoe for TTL flash and a 60x Intelligent Digital Zoom.
The EXR-CMOS sensor offers three different user-selectable options: High Resolution (HR), Wide Dynamic Range (DR) Priority and Low Noise (SN) Priority. Its Lithium-ion rechargeable battery delivers up to 600 pictures per charge and the camera is a great option for those who don’t want to deal with the hassle of changing lenses. The Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR will debut at CES 2012, and for now there is no word on price or availability.
