Fujifilm Finepix Z900EXR Press Release
Valhalla, N.Y., April 5, 2011 FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the FinePix Z900 EXR digital camera, the latest addition to the fashion-forward line of Z-series compact cameras.
The FinePix Z900 EXR delivers a powerful new 16-MegaPixel EXR CMOS sensor, a FUJINON 5x wide angle refractive optical zoom lens (28-140mm equivalent) and a large widescreen 3.5-inch High Resolution Touch screen LCD with an easy-to-use Multi Touch user interface.
Z900 EXR also offers a series of impressive features that include a new
EXR Auto mode that recognizes 27 scenes, one-touch access to full 1080p
HD movie capture, an intuitive Dual Direction GUI with beautiful vector
font that allows for smooth and easy navigation with an improved Flash
animation user interface with tap and shoot capabilities and
fast image tagging with automatic upload functions to YouTube and Facebook.
The new FinePix Z900 EXR blends our most fashion-forward design with a powerful 16-MegaPixel EXR CMOS sensor to give users a technology-packed camera for a night out on the town with friends when they want to capture the fun at every stop, said David Troy, director of marketing, Digital Cameras, Electronics Imaging Division, FUJIFILM North America Corporation.
When design and function matter the most, the Z900 EXR is the hands-down choice for people who want fast multi touch operation, quick access to full HD video and speedy shooting modes that never miss a shot.
High-speed Continuous Shooting - Ultra-burst shooting powered by the fast CMOS sensor shoots the action at 12fps and high speed movies at 320fps at full resolution.
Multi Frame Technology - Combined with the accelerated performance of
the CMOS, this feature synthesizes consecutive burst shots into a single
composite image, blending the sensitivities to smooth the
High Sensitivity, Low Noise CMOS turns the sensor upside down to
let light directly strike the silicon for higher sensitivity, more uniform
response and lower pixel cross talk. Combined with EXR technology, that
means superior photos in low light with even lower noise.
Prized for bringing a new level of advanced image quality to the consumer compact market, Fujifilms EXR technology has the unique ability to switch its behavior depending on the shooting conditions by automatically switching sensor modes.
The Z900 EXR can be left on EXR Auto Mode and the cameras will do all the work for you, or you can manually select one of three EXR Priority modes: High Resolution (HR); Dynamic Range (DR), which takes two pictures and combines them to provide a range of up to 1600%; or High ISO, Low Noise, which is perfect for capturing stunning pictures in low light situations.
HD movies in low light are especially brilliant thanks to Pixel Fusion
Movie Technology that makes pixels more sensitive to dim light situations.
Movie files (.MOV) are captured in full 1080p HD in stereo at 30fps with
H.264 high profile compression for smaller file sizes without sacrificing
quality. With a mini-HDMI output connector, it is easy to connect and
view images on your HDTV (HDMI cable not included).
Tap and Shoot: Provides the ability for one touch focus and shooting for
easy photo taking. After the user taps the focal point of choice for the
shooting scene on the LCD display, the camera automatically sets the appropriate
focus and functions, and then releases the shutter for optimal one touch
EXR Auto mode featuring 27 scenes: This mode intelligently detects the
scene-type and shooting conditions and optimizes the camera settings accordingly.
Intelligent Image Stabilization: The new mechanically stabilized sensor is able to overcome handshake and can compensate for both sharp and wide hand movements, therefore increasing ISO to freeze action is no longer so necessary, meaning sharp low-light pictures can be achieved at ISO 400, rather than ISO 800 or 1600 at night scenery.
The FinePix Z900 EXR also works to reduce blur to a minimum by deploying high ISO sensitivity to automatically increase shutter speeds, and CMOS shift type to counteract the problems of handshake. By cleverly combining these two, blur is reduced to an absolute minimum.
Face Recognition: Fujifilms Face Recognition Technology gives you
the ability to pre-program 8 people into the camera. You also have the
option of inputting the category to which they belong (e.g. friends /
family) and the date of his / her birthday. The next time you take a photo
of the same person, the camera will cleverly recognize that person and
optimize the settings to ensure that exposure and focus are best suited
to the individual, rather than the other people in the picture. This fun
technology can recognize up to 4 pre-programmed people on screen at the
Face Detection and Automatic Red-eye Removal: To provide perfectly exposed
and focused portrait shots, the FinePix Z900 EXR is fitted with Fujifilms
latest Face Detection technology which is able to track up to 10 faces
simultaneously, at almost any angle to the camera. The system instantly
corrects red-eye and then saves both the original and the corrected image
i-Flash Intelligent Flash: Offers a flash control system which efficiently
controls the level of flash for a given exposure to produce beautifully
balanced flash illumination across the foreground and background. Gone
are the ugly washout shots where the subject is blasted with light and
the background dark and unexposed.
Motion Panorama 360° Mode: The FinePix Z900 EXR sensor extends the
sweep range to 360° (shots can also be taken vertically). Combined
with high quality Fujifilm printing, sweeping and impressive scenes can
be taken, showing fine detail, low noise and high resolution at 180°,
240° or full 360° panoramic ranges.
Playback Capabilities: Offers a variety of playback features for easy
and immediate sharing such as the widescreen LCD in full HD, slide show,
sort, edit and search features, plus Dual Image Display that splits the
screen in various ways to view multiple images at once.
Photo Book Assist: Photo Book Assist lets you select and organize images
in your camera to create a digital photo book. You can download the photo
books to your computer using MyFinePix Studio software that is included.
