FinePix camera says adios to blurry photos

The US$399 Fujifilm FinePix F30 battles blurry pictures with a very high sensitivity to light.

The camera reaches ISO 3200, which is unusual for a point-and-shoot model. The high ISO enables the camera to shoot in low light with a faster shutter speed than at lower ISOs. This makes it more likely that your photo will freeze moving subjects rather than have a blur of motion. The F30, shown below, is the successor to the F10, which reached ISO 1600.

The F30 also adjusts the intensity of its flash based on lighting conditions, the subject's size, and its position in the frame. The company claims the feature delivers more realistic skin tones.

The 6.3-megapixel camera has a 2.5-inch LCD, records video at 30 frames per second, and its zoom lens is 36-128mm (35mm equivalent).

More interesting is the camera's "Natural Light & With Flash" setting in which you take two photos in succession, one with flash and one without. This seems most appropriate for portraits, however, in the demonstration I saw of this feature, too much time lapsed between the two shots to truly deliver the same image twice--the subject had changed her expression and turned away from the photographer in the interim.

The F30 will be available in Australia but as yet no date or price has been set.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
