Fujifilm Finepix A610 (and A800) News Release
FUJIFILM UNVEILS FIRST 8-MEGAPIXEL ENTRY-LEVEL DIGITAL CAMERA

Expands A-Series Line-Up with Two New Models

It is now easier and more affordable than ever for consumers to capture high-quality, natural-looking photographs at the click of a button. FUJIFILM U.S.A. Inc. today raised both the picture-taking and purchasing power of first-time digital camera buyers with the launch of two new models, the six-MegaPixel FinePix A610 and eight-MegaPixel FinePix A800.

More than half of all digital camera purchases in 2006 were made by first-time buyers. Almost 60% of these first-time purchases totaled less than $200*. Designed specifically for the first-time digital camera buyer or consumers seeking an easy-to-operate upgrade to their current digital camera, Fujifilms A-Series models provide users with a choice of digital cameras that offer top-notch image quality at consumer-friendly price points.

The FinePix A800 is the first model in Fujifilms A-Series line-up to sport an eight-MegaPixel Super CCD Sensor and the first to incorporate light sensitivities of up to ISO 800 at full resolution. Borrowing a page from Fujifilms more advanced camera models, the FinePix A800 shoots at higher light sensitivities with less noise than comparative models. This results higher quality natural light photos and less blur in images as the FinePix A800 matches these higher light sensitivities with faster shutter speeds.

Fujifilms A-Series digital cameras are among its most popular models and the FinePix A610 should help continue this trend. This camera has the same comfortable design as the FinePix A800 and is priced right for the first-time digital buyer. In a first for Fujifilms compact digital camera range, the FinePix A800 and A610 both feature a xD/SD Compatible slot, which accepts not only Fujifilms traditional xD-Picture Cards, but also Secure Digital (SD) cards.

In addition to the highlights previously referenced, Fujifilms new A-Series models offer the following attractive features:

New icon-based Graphic User Interface (GUI): Fujifilm debuts its intuitive icon-based graphical user interface on the FinePix A610 and FinePix A800. When users switch shooting modes, scene positions or control settings, a brief explanation of the setting is momentarily displayed on the LCD screen, taking much of the guess work out of digital camera operation.
Fujinon Lens: The 3x optical zoom lens for both cameras was developed specifically for the A-Series by Fujinon, a Fujifilm sister company and leading provider of broadcast-grade television lenses.
Internal memory: When the xD Picture Card (sold separately) is filled with images, users have a little extra internal storage space on each camera to capture additional pictures. A great storage fall-back option for the most active picture-takers.
Mode Dial: The FinePix A800 is the first A-Series camera to feature a mode dial, allowing users to easily toggle between camera, playback and movie recording modes.
Single slot compatibility with both xD-Picture Card and SD storage media
Large LCD: 2.5-inch LCD display with anti-glare properties
Scene Modes: A wide range of scene modes provides top-quality photos in a range of shooting conditions. The FinePix A800 has 2 shooting modes and 17 scene positions and A610 has 2 shooting modes and 14 scene positions.

The FinePix A610 and FinePix A800 will debut in March 2007 with retail prices of $129 and $179, respectively.

Fujifilm Finepix A610 Reviews

Cameras.co.uk has a review of the Fuji Finepix A610 and writes, "Picture quality from the Finepix A610 is roughly in line with other entry level models. The same problems arise such as the camera finds it difficult to focus well when the light gets low. ... The photo I took to test higher ISO worked well. At ISO 400 this camera holds up better than most of its rivals. Although the photo is not perfect there is less deterioration in quality than you find with most digital cameras. ... The Fuji Finepix A610 is a typical entry level camera. I was quite impressed with the outdoor shots in good light, but lower light is a lot harder for the camera. The upside is that it is so easy to use and I also think it has a good solid feel."

LaptopMag has a review of the Fujifilm Finepix A610 and writes, "On our tests, photos looked sharp but oversaturated. Both the image of our colleague and the shot of the vase were a little dark for our tastes. Fortunately, the quality improved when we shot outside. The Finepix A610 fires up quickly but took a lengthy five seconds between shots. QVGA videos are recorded at 30 fps, and they looked better than those captured by the other models."

PCWorld has a review of the Fujifilm FinePix A610 and writes, "Overall, the A610's scores in our image quality tests were about average, but impressive for a budget-priced camera. In lab tests, our jury gave the camera scores slightly above average for the color and exposure accuracy of its images, but rated it slightly below average for image sharpness. ... Although the A610 is a competent low-cost camera, a few more features would make it a better deal."
