Happy SUNday! – Classic Digitals

Happy Sunday everybody! Yes, you read that right, classic digitals. I find collecting these early compact digital cameras a fun endeavor. But too much of a good thing can be overwhelming. So, it’s time to let a few go by putting them in my online camera shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com

From 2010, here’s a sharp ultracompact digital from Fujifilm. The FinePix JX250 features a true 14-megapixels of image quality and a super sharp glass Fujinon 5x zoom lens.

An original boxed set is included with this slightly used camera.

The Kyocera Finecam S5R is and was a pretty sophisticated digital when it was released in mid-2004 at an opening price of a whopping $499.99! The Kyocera lens is a 7 element in 6 groups design and has a 35mm equivalent range of 35-105mm. It feature Kyocera’s new “RTUNE” Image Processing Technology. It’s also capable of up to 3fps in full auto mode. More can be found at https://americas.kyocera.com/press-releases/press-releases_20150319896.htm

Totally unretouched. As it was recorded by the Finecam S5R. Not bad for 5MP.
The complete boxed set as it came from the factory. Everything is in mint unused condition except for the box which shows considerable shelf wear. It even comes with the original Panasonic 16MB SD card and Adobe Photoshop Album CD!

Thanks for stopping by and as always, have a beautiful day!

Auto exposure – medium telephoto.

For a compact digital camera that was released in 2010 the exposures are accurate albeit not super-sharp by today’s standards. Technology has come a long way since then where high-end camera phones can be crazy sharp and compact. This is from another era and it shows.

The camera is super compact about the size of a deck of cards which makes it a bit smallish for me to use comfortably. It’s biggest pluses to me is the steady shot capabilities at longer telephoto shots did its job and negated my shaky hands. The Fujinon lens is sharp with 5x optical zoom but not crazy sharp. Good contrast across the shooting range which produces accurate and pleasing exposures.

I like collecting these simple and compact P&S digitals from the past – it helps me appreciate just how far we’ve come in just over a decade. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Goody Box!

My rather large mail box in front of my home. Lots of cool stuff comes in and lots of great stuff heads out. It’s a wonderful thing.

Test shot with my new Fujifilm FinePix JX250 ultra-compact digital camera. It features a super-sharp Fujinon f3.6 5X Zoom lens (5-25mm) and a useful 14 megapixels. No post production except for a tiny crop.
Wide-angle shot with my Fuji… super-sharp details and accurate auto exposure in a tricky lighting situation. No post production.
Ferns in a pot. OK exposure in a tough backlighting situation.

I’ll have more about this interesting point and shoot digital camera from Fujifilm soon.
