Fujifilm has raised the bar on entry-level cameras by offering the FinePix A920 model, boasting 9 megapixels, 4x optical zoom and a rather expansive 2.7-inch display.
They have also raised the price of entry. There are nondescript cameras to be had for $130-$150 nowadays, but the FinePix A920 is quite right for its price of about $200.
Designed specifically for the first-time digital camera buyer and consumers seeking an affordable, easy-to-operate digital camera, the A920 has features usually reserved for more advanced models. The camera incorporates Fujifilm’s signature Super CCD sensor technology, a 4.0x optical zoom lens and features a 2.7″ LCD.
The FinePix A920 also features an icon-based graphic user interface (GUI). When users switch shooting modes, scene positions or control settings, the LCD screen displays a brief explanation of the setting.
The new camera uses two AA-size penlight batteries and takes in xD/SD memory cards in all their variants in a single media slot. It will be available in September.
