New camera announcement: Fuji XP170 elementproof
Once partners in xD, now Fuji and Olympus have parallel dueling press releases for elementproof point and shoot digital cameras. Fuji has just revealed the new elementproof XP170 digital camera with a 14mp CMOS sensor, 5x optical zoom (28-140mm eq), folded optics, 2.7" LCD, etc.
Today's announcements (so far) increase the total of new digital cameras in 2012 to 147. And it's only May during a Photokina year :) See Trade Show Calendar. Speaking of trade shows, the CTIA Wireless trade show is happening today/tomorrow depending on your time zone. If a camera manufacturer wants to drive a point about the importance of wireless, that may be a good place to make an announcement.
