FUJIFILM ANNOUNCES SOPHISTICATED LINE OF ADVANCED

FINEPIX DIGITAL CAMERAS

New FinePix models give consumers the best digital camera choice for

their picture-taking needs

 

Valhalla, N.Y., January 6, 2014 FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced its new line of powerful, feature-packed FinePix digital cameras, and will showcase them at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 7-10. Each new FinePix camera is specially designed to give consumers an enjoyable user experience that fits their lifestyle. The new FinePix cameras includethe FinePix S1, a “weather resistant” super zoom camera; the FinePix XP70 rugged, go-anywhere waterproof point and shoot; the super-zoom FinePix S9400W bridge camera, with advanced image stabilization and WiFi functions; and the pocket-friendly long-zoom FinePix S8600 with a versatile 36x zoom 25-900mm lens.

 

FinePix S1

The FinePix S1 is the world’s first “weather resistant” super zoom bridge camera and provides protection against rain and dust. The S1 features a 16MP CMOS sensor, and a bright 50x super zoom 24mmF2.8-1200mmF5.6*1 lens with ultra-fast zoom speed and 2x Intelligent Digital Zoom up to 100x. The high resolution and contrast Vari-Angle 3” LCD (920K dot) makes it easy to frame shots from any angle, and the 0.2” EVF (920K dot) is great for difficult shooting conditions. One-touch WiFi connectivity lets you easily share images to your smartphone or tablet – pictures that these devices cannot capture - and remote shooting via smartphone or tablet using the Fujifilm Camera Remote app for unique capture opportunities.

 

FinePix XP70

The latest addition to the best-selling FUJIFILM XP-series, the new FinePix XP70 rugged digital camera is waterproof to 33ft., shockproof from 5ft., freezeproof to 14°F and dustproof.  It also features a 16MP CMOS high speed sensor with a 5x 28-140mm*2 optical zoom, WiFi connectivity for one touch transfers to smartphones and tablets, and captures full HD movies at 1080 even underwater.

 

FinePix S9400W (with WiFi) and FinePix S9200 (without WiFi)

The new FinePix S9400W (with WiFi) and FinePix S9200 (without WiFi) both feature a 16MP CMOS sensor with a maximum ISO sensitivity of 12,800, and deliver rapid focusing speeds and beautiful high resolution images. Both cameras also give users a bright F2.9-6.5 lens that offers an amazing 50x optical zoom 24-1200mm*3 optical range that can be boosted to an incredible 100x magnification with Fujifilm’s Intelligent Digital Zoom technology and down to 1cm in Super Macro mode for extraordinary close up images.

 

The S9400W/S9200 both have a start-up time of just one second, autofocus in as little as 0.3 seconds and are ready to take another shot in just 0.5 seconds. Those wanting to capture a burst of full resolution images in quick succession can do so using the continuous shooting speed of 10 frames-per-second (maximum 10 frames).

 

Available exclusively on the S9400W, WiFi connectivity allows users to quickly share photos and movies with smartphones or tablets, without the need for an ID or password. Users simply download the free Fujifilm Camera Application to their device and then use wireless LAN to send images from the S9400W to their device.

 

FinePix S8600

The FinePix S8600 is the perfect combination of powerful long-zoom at 36x, fast autofocus and HD video with portability that makes it easy to carry anywhere. Featuring a 16MP sensor, the S8600 uses a newly developed three-step collapsible lens, which automatically retracts when not in use to leave a slim and stylish body that is extremely compact. The S8600 uses a highly versatile 25-900mm*4 lens to shoot sharp images of everything from wide-angle landscapes to detailed close up pictures with its Super Macro mode. The S8600 also includes Fujifilm’s lens-shift Optical Image Stabilization system to reduce blurry pictures.
