Eight boundary-busting digital cameras hit the market with features that include ultra-zooms, low-light sensitivity, better flexibility, new connectivity choices, superior durability and even 3-D images

One of my favorite features goes beyond its 3-D capability. You have two lenses, two sensors—in effect, two cameras in one—and Fujifilm uses this setup for innovative 2-D shooting strategies. Can’t decide whether you want to shoot a wide angle or zoom in? What the heck—why not take both shots at once with the lenses at different settings? Want to experiment with black-and-white photography but don’t want to sacrifice the color shot? Again, take ‘em both at the same time and figure it out later.
This is Fujfilm’s second 3-D camera; the first was barely marketed to the public because it lacked the ability to display your stills and video on a 3-D TV (of course, the fact that there were barely any 3-D sets in people’s homes didn’t help much either). The new model connects to a 3-D TV by HDMI cable, allowing the entire family to put on stupid-looking glasses and enjoy the 3-D experience together.
