Fujifilm Canada's New Digital Camera Line-Up

August 29, 2006

I just came back from Fujifilm Canada's presentation of its newest digital camera offerings. It was held at the Drake Hotel [Queen St. & Beaconsfield] in Toronto, and Jim Jacobs, the Director of Technical, Imaging & Storage Media at Fujifilm Canada, was on hand to present Fujifilm's new 2006-2007 digital camera line-up.

It's an impressive line-up with models that are easily at the top of their respective categories. Here is a summary of two of the models.

Fujifilm FinePix S6000fd

Face Detection technology comes to the Fujifilm FinePix S6000fd which is quickly able to identify up to 10 human faces in real-time and will set the closest face as the one to focus on and optimize exposure for.

Unlike competing models where the face detection tecnology works in software, Fujifilm's LSI Face Detection is in the S6000fd's processor, enabling a face to be recognized and focused on in split-second accuracy (0.04-0.05 sec.). This allows the photographer to concentrate on composition where portraits are concerned with the confidence that the main subject will always be in focus and properly exposed.

The Fujifilm S6000fd features the newly developed 6th Generation Super CCD HR which, together with the Real Photo Processor II, makes possible an unprecedented ISO 3200 sensitivity at its full 6.3MP resolution. The result is impressive low-light picture quality.

A new "Intelligent-Flash" [i-Flash] system prevents washed-out overexposure of the main subject when using high ISOs. Used together with high ISO, i-Flash ensures that both the background [high ISO] and main subject [i-Flash] are properly exposed in low-light situations when flash is used. A Dual Shot mode takes 2 pictures, one with flash and one without -- then displays them side-by-side for on-the-spot comparison.

Picture Stabilization automatically sets the ISO and shutter speed to prevent blurring due to camera shake or a fast-moving subject.

The FinePix S6000fd incorporates a 28-300mm wide-angle zoom lens with manual zoom control. This allows flexible shooting in all the major focal lengths in one lens. An optional wide-angle converter provides a 22.4mm coverage.

Fifteen [15] easy-to-use scene modes automate exposure in many common picture-taking situations such as fireworks, beach, snow, sunset, party.

VGA (640x480) Video movie with sound is captured at 30fps.

The Fujifilm S6000fd is presented as an alternative to a Digital SLR.

Fujifilm FinePix F30

Just like its predecessor, the FinePix F10, the Fujifilm FinePix F30 can take low-light pictures as no other consumer digital cameras can. It's low-noise high ISO capability sets it world apart from its competitors who can only claim the availability of high ISO but not the low noise performance.

The newly developed 6th Generation Super CCD HR and the Real Photo Processor II make possible an unprecedented ISO 3200 sensitivity at its full 6.1MP resolution. The result is impressive low-light picture quality.

A new "Intelligent-Flash" [i-Flash] system prevents washed-out overexposure of the main subject when using high ISOs. Used together with high ISO, i-Flash ensures that both the background [high ISO] and main subject [i-Flash] are properly exposed in low-light situations when flash is used.

Picture Stabilization automatically sets the ISO and shutter speed to prevent blurring due to camera shake or a fast-moving subject.

An extra large 2.5-in. LCD monitor with a high 230,000 pixels resolution is coated with Fujifilm's proprietary Clear View Film to minimize glare and reflections for easy viewing.

Tired of anemic battery life? The FinePix F30 uses a Li-ion battery that can take up to 500 shots before requiring a recharge!

Fifteen [15] easy-to-use scene modes automate exposure in many common picture-taking situations such as fireworks, beach, snow, sunset, party.

Startup is fast at 1.5 sec. and there is no practical shutter lag.

VGA (640x480) Video movie with sound is beautifully captured at 30fps.
