Fuji announces a wave of new cameras, starring the HS20EXR and F550/F500EXR

Not wanting to relinquish their #1 spot for "most cameras by manufacturer" in 2010, Fuji has just announced a large number of new digital cameras!

The headliners of this burst mode are the 30x superzoom HS20, a follow-up to the HS10, and the F550/F500 EXR duo. The good news here is that the F550 has RAW image capture, something that has been missing from Fuji's more compact cameras. These cameras are using a new 16mp 1/2" EXR sensor. As you may recall recalling, the HS10 was a departure from Fuji's own sensors as it was using a "standard" 1/2.3" backlit CMOS sensor. The F550exr also has a GPS feature that the F500 does not.

We will have a more detailed look at these tomorrow. The number of new Fuji cameras in this burst mode is a total of 21 after the recount! around 20~. We will have a more accurate count tomorrow when we take a closer look at them.
