Fujifilm is certainly no stranger to photography, but global positioning systems, now that’s a different story.
Yesterday, the company introduced the Finepix F600EXR. And while it boasts the usual assortment of high end point and shoot camera features (we’ll get into those in a sec), it includes a GPS system and a database of over 1 million points of interest. Users can also store their finds, building on the existing database, though we’re not sure if you can share those in a community like fashion. In the event you get lost during your travels you can use the F600EXR to backtrack or simply plot your trip, all which can be accessed using Photo Navigation, if necessary of course.
And the buck don’t stop there. There is a 16 megapixel sensor that can detect motion to reduce blur, EXR dynamic range, the usual image stabilization and a 15x optical zoom. On the back is a 460k 3-inch LCD, though it doesn’t look like it’s touchscreen, which we can most certainly live without. And lets not over look the F600EXR’s ability to capture full HD video and 360 degree panoramic shots.
The Fujufilm F600XR is expected to hit retail stores this October for $349.95.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
