In need of a new camera
? Aren't willing to go the DSLR
has three new point and shoot options out today, none of which are
highly complex. But that said, they all include the basics, and they all
posses a sense of style. And in a pinch, that's what you need to get
you through. The new mju-7050, FE-5050 and FE-4050 have arrived, and all
three are definitely entry-level pocket cams for those who just want
something simple and compact to have for those spontaneous moments in
life that deserve to be remembered.
From the top, the 7050 has a 14MP sensor, HD movie option, SD slot for
expanding the 2GB of internal storage space, a 3" LCD and a 7x optical
zoom. That's a fairly dense sensor and a long optical zoom for a camera
in this class, but otherwise it seems pretty average. The 5050 has the
same 14MP sensor, but goes with a 5x optical zoom instead and a slightly
smaller LCD. The 4040 steps down again with a 12MP sensor, 4x optical
zoom and simpler controls/buttons on the back.
No prices are mentioned yet, but Japanese consumers should expect these
to ship to their shops next month.
