Fujifilm has announced its "spring collection" of compact digital cameras across three ranges offering more budget choices for consumers than its feature offerings.

New to the S Series, the FinePix S1600, S1800 and S2500HD are described as compact and lightweight, 12-megapixel digital cameras with powerful Fujinon long-zoom lenses.

Battery-powered, all models offer a 3-inch LCD, various shooting modes, face detection with blink and smile modes and 720p video capture while the S1600 gets a 15x zoom and the two other models 18x.

There are four new models for the JV and JZ Series - the FinePix JV100/150 and JX200/250 boasting slimline dimensions of less than 19mm and a metal body at what's said to be an affordable price.

Basic specs are 12-megapixels and 3x zoom for the JV100, 14-megapixels and 3x zoom for the JV150, 12-megapixels and 5x zoom for the JX200 and 12-megapixels and 5x zoom for the JX250.

All models offer 720p video capture, a 2.7-inch LCD display and will be available in black, silver and pink.

The A Series ("point and shoot simplicity perfect for people who are investing in their first digital camera")  sees the launch of the AV100 and AX280.

The 12-megapixel AV100 boasts a 3x Fujinon zoom, whilst the 14-megapixel AX280 features a Fujinon 5x, 28mm wide-angle zoom lens.

There's no news on pricing or availability for any of the new cameras.
