High quality photography just got a whole lot more accessible thanks to the introduction of the new FinePix T300. One of two models that comprise Fujifilm's new T series, the T300 presents the ideal solution for those who want to buy a well specified, easy to use and most importantly, world thinnest*1 10 times zoom compact camera to take on their travels or use to capture family life, but don't want a hefty price tag to match.
The T300 offers a specification that few other models can match, including some of latest cutting edge technologies plucked from higher-end models in Fujifilm's range.
With an impressive resolution of 14 megapixels, the FinePix T300 delivers files that can be printed out at A3 without the need for any software re-sizing. Equally impressive is the 10x zoom range, which stretches from 28 - 280 mm (35 mm equivalent). This powerful mix of features will ensure users can capture great image in no time, be they wide-angle land and cityscapes or closely cropped portraits and distant details.
In addition to the 10x zoom, the T300 also comes equipped with a powerful CCD shift Image Stabilisation (CIS) system that helps eliminate camera shake and deliver high quality images in a wide variety of lighting conditions.
CIS works during the exposure to counteract any hand movements. The result is an expanded range of shooting situations where the T300 can be used without the need for a tripod or other support. With CIS working hard in the background, you can capture sharp, colorful scenes and portraits at night. Plus, should the light be really low, the maximum sensitivity of ISO 3200*2 can be selected so you can keep shooting.
Many photographers want to keep things simple when it comes to taking pictures and the T300 is an approachable, easy to use compact. But don't think that you're missing out on some of Fujifilm's latest compact camera developments as a result. The FinePix T300 has a few technological tricks up its sleeve, including:
Compact dimensions, perhaps, but this hasn't affected the size of the rear LCD, which measures an impressive three inches from corner. Images and menus are displayed in 230,000 dots glory, plus composition is easy on the large screen.
A heavy, bulky camera is the last thing you need when you're trying to travel light. The T300 is just 28.1 mm thick and 97 mm wide (without the projection portion of the lens, it is 18.5 mm thick: minimum depth) so it'll easily store in the corner of a travel bag or a jacket pocket. What's more the camera is also available in five colours, so there's bound to be one to suit your tastes.
The FinePix T300 is just one of two models in the new T series range. It's joined by the FinePix T200, which shares many of the same features, but an even smaller price tag.
Key differences between the two include a resolution of a smaller 2.7 inch rear LCD that uses 230,000 dots.
