Fujifilm readies new cameras for mid-summer 2009 as well
by Brad Soo on July 22

Fujifilm released a slew of new digital cameras today, including two new ‘EXR’ SuperCCD cameras and a new ‘Real 3D’ camera – details on the 3D camera are scarce, other than the fact that it can take 3D photos, 3D movies and play them back on its high-resolution screen (in 3D, no less), and I’ll only be posting details on Fujifilm’s 3D camera when there’s more in September. The thing I noticed about all of them is they all use […]

The new E-P1 ‘PEN’ camera is an interchangeable lens camera features the controls and flexibility you’ll find in a typical digital SLR, but it’s a lot smaller… it’s even more compact than Panasonic’s GH1 camera.
