What to expect from Fujifilm, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic and Nikon for the 2013 CES show

new Fuji superzoom compact camera

Here is quick update on what to expect from Fujifilm, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic and Nikon for the CES show (January 8-11 2013):

Fujifilm will announce 5 new FinePix cameras: 3 super zooms, one rugged model and 0ne "regular" compact camera. The top of the line superzoom (pictured above) is rumored to have a very fast AF. I still do not have reliable information about a potential X10 or X100 replacement, but those two cameras are still a possibility.

Olympus will probably announce 6 new point and shoot cameras: 3 rugged models and 3 super zoom cameras (with 24x-48x zooms). None of the new cameras will be high-end or m4/3.

Sony will also introduce several new Cybershot models. I do not have any details, but I also do not expect anything groundbreaking.

Panasonic will announce 10 different compact cameras (via digicame-info):

  • DMC-TS25 (FT series in Japan), 16.1MP sensor, 4x zoom
  • DMC-TS5 (FT series in Japan), 16.1MP sensor, 4.6x zoom
  • DMC-XS1, 16.1MP sensor, 5x zoom
  • DMC-ZS25 (TZ series in Japan), 16.1MP sensor, 20x zoom
  • DMC-ZS30 (TZ series in Japan), 18.2MP sensor, 20x zoom
  • DMC-LZ30, 16.1MP sensor, 35x zoom
  • DMC-SZ3, 16.1MP sensor, 10x zoom
  • DMC-SZ9, 16.1MP sensor, 10x zoom
  • DMC-F5, 14.1MP sensor, 5x zoom
  • DMC-FH10, 16.1MP sensor, 5x zoom

Nikon is rumored to announce new Nikon 1 J3 and S1 mirrorless cameras and two 1 Nikkor lenses: 1 Nikkor 10-100mm f/4-5.6 and 1 Nikkor 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6.
