Fuji Rep Confirms Low-Noise days are over

I spoke to a senior Fuji Rep at the Scott Kelby seminar in New York. He confirmed that there will be no more cameras like the F30 and F31.

Essentially, he said that those cameras were marketing errors -- a bet that people would value a low noise camera. Apparently sales were quite poor.

From now on you can expect more of the kind of 12MP P&S cameras they have recently introduced. Slim, pretty and lots of pixels is their current direction.

He said this with a certain resignation. I think he knows that people lucky enough to have one of the F20 F30 cameras treasure them as something quite special.
