Fujifilm has been stepping up the efforts to establish its presence in India by releasing some very impressive cameras into the market.
Today sees the launch of Fujifilm’s SL300, their newest SLR-bridge super-zoom camera with a 30x optical zoom (24-720mm equivalent). The camera features a standard 1/2.3 inch CCD sensor with a resolution of 14 megapixels. The camera is also ideal for macro photography as it has a minimum focusing distance of just 7 cm, which can be reduced to 2 cm using the close-focus feature.
Shaped like an SLR, the SL300 might be bulky to carry around, but the versatility of the 30x optical zoom is definitely something worth trading the size for. Besides, a body like this one is fitting for those who are used to using SLRs, or even those who are planning on buying DSLRs. Another interesting feature of the Fujifilm SL300 is the distance markings on the lens, which allow you to actually see how far you have zoomed in.
The SL300 is available at all leading camera and electronic stores across the country for Rs. 19,499 with a 2-year warranty.
