Fujifilm FinePix T300 Overview
At the heart of the Fujifilm FinePix T300 digital camera sits a 14 megapixel CCD image sensor, which allows capture of not only high-resolution still images, but also of high-definition 720p video at 30 frames per second. The Fuji T300 places its sensor behind a FUJINON-branded 10x optical zoom lens, with actual focal lengths ranging from 5 to 50mm. This equates to the same range as a 35mm camera with a 28mm - 280mm lens, a useful wide angle to a moderate telephoto Maximum aperture ranges from f/3.4 at wide angle to f/5.6 at telephoto. Given the powerful telephoto reach, mechanical image stabilization is obviously a necessity to fight blur from camera shake, and the Fuji FinePix T300 includes sensor shift stabilization.
The Fuji FinePix T300 lacks any form of optical or electronic viewfinder, instead relying on a 3.0-inch LCD display with 230,000 dots of resolution, roughly equivalent to a 320 x 240 pixel array, with each pixel comprising separate red, green, and blue colored dots. The Fujifilm T300 includes face detection capability able to locate and track up to ten faces in a scene. Going a step further, it can also be programmed to recognize the faces of eight specific individuals, who can then be prioritized automatically when recognized in a scene. It also includes both smile and blink detection capability, automatic red-eye removal, and a motion panorama mode that stitches up to three separate shots into a single image. Further details on this model were not available at press time.
The Fuji FinePix T300 ships in the US market from April 2011, priced at around US$200. The only available body color in this market is black.
