The FinePix S9000 digital camera boasts 9.0 effective MegaPixels that capture up to 3,488 x 2,616 recorded pixels (9.12 million).
While these record-breaking numbers are impressive alone, Fujifilm understands there is more to a great digital picture than resolution. The company?s latest innovation matches the nine MegaPixel, 5th Generation` Super CCD HR sensor, with a super-sharp Fujinon lens and the RP Processor technology found currently in the critically-acclaimed FinePix F10 digital camera.
A hallmark of Fujifilm?s Real Photo Technology is its ability to reduce the amount of graininess or ?noise? in digital pictures. This noise is often apparent in high- resolution photos, particularly those shot at high ISO-equivalent sensitivities. With Real Photo Technology, the FinePix S9000 can take pictures at ISO 1600 -- at full resolution. Other benefits of Real Photo Technology include speed of operation (the FinePix S9000 has a high-speed start-up time of only 0.8 second with shutter lag down to 1/100 second) and longer battery life.
In addition to offering low noise processing, the new FinePix S9000 is equipped with a bevy of features that will appeal to the photo hobbyist. One of those features is a world-class Fujinon 10.7x wide-angle optical zoom lens that is the equivalent of having a 28-300mm zoom on a 35mm camera. This zoom range is ideal for a wide variety of shooting situations and thus makes the purchase of additional lenses unnecessary.
Other features appealing to the photo hobbyist include:
Still image: DCF-compliant, Compressed: Exif ver.2.2 JPEG, DPOF-compatible, Uncompressed: CCD-RAW (RAF) (Design rule for Camera File System compliant DPOF compatible)
Movie: AVI format, Motion JPEG ? Audio: WAVE format, Monaural sound
