The FinePix HS50EXR features a 16MP EXR-CMOS II sensor. Autofocus speeds are as fast as 0.05 seconds and continuous shooting mode of 11fps at full resolution (max 5 frames) for quick action.
The clever hybrid autofocus system can choose between Phase Detection AF or switch to Contrast AF in low light to ensure the optimal focus system is used-dependent on the shooting conditions.
Depending on the scene, Hybrid AF instantly switches between high-speed phase detection AF(found in most top-end SLRs), and contrast AF, which is employed when high contrast light is present. Applying the fastest algorithm according to the targeted subject and scene, Hybrid AF guarantees your subject will be in focus as quickly as possible(fastest 0.05 sec.*),ensuring your shots are captured perfectly.
EXR processor II achieves the processing speed of the previous EXR processor.
Frames captured with high-speed continuous shooting at high sensitivity are overlapped to create a single optimum image, keeping noise to an absolute minimum. Image blur is minimized, even when camera is hand-held.
New EXR Auto with Motion Detection automatically selects the optimum shooting mode from 108 possible patterns according to the demands of the composition, guaranteeing beautifully captured scenes and the best image quality possible.
Just as your eyes see even the tiniest of details when looking at something in good light, HR (High Resolution) mode maximizes the 16 million pixels resolution of the FinePix HS50EXR to reproduce even the smallest details in bright, beautiful color.
Just as your eyes see the full range of shadows to highlights in high-contrast scenes, DR mode simultaneously captures two images to produce a single image with significantly enhanced dynamic range, revealing subtle details in shadow and eliminating washout of bright areas.
Just as your eyes strive to make dark scenes as bright and detailed as possible, SN mode takes advantage of high-sensitivity to capture smooth texture and natural brightness with minimal noise.
