The Samsung EX2 advanced point and shoot camera now comes in white (in addition to black). The 12.4MP compact camera captures RAW files, features a 3.3x optical zoom lens (24-80mm equivalent) with a f/1.4-2.7 max aperture and captures 1080p HD video. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
B&H now has the Fuji XF1 retro point and shoot camera in stock. As noted in my hands-on time with the camera, the XF1 features a unique lens twist/pull function to power the camera on, as well as a rotating zoom feature for the lens.
The Fuji XF1 is available in black, red and tan, all of which are currently in stock here at B&H Photo.
The Fuji XF1 is the latest X-Series point and shoot camera. It features a retro-style that’s as much of what defines the camera as technical features like the 12MP EXR CMOS sensor and f/1.8 lens.
The XF1 is certainly a pretty camera, and those specs put it near the top of point and shoot models around. The prints from the XF1 that I saw at PhotoPlus looked solid, which is promising for a camera as pretty as this one. [Read more…]
The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 is a 20MP point and shoot camera. But this isn’t just any point and shoot camera.

It looks like Canon may be announcing a true successor to the PowerShot G12 next week prior to Photokina 2012. Recall that the Canon G1 X was announced earlier this year at CES 2012, causing speculation that the G-series may move to a larger sensor format.
The above leaked image appears to confirm, however, that the more compact-oriented camera line will continue with a PowerShot G15. [Read more…]
