Powerful zoom range and leading HDTV capabilities extend Fujifilm's S-
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - Fujifilm Canada Inc. today announced the
introduction of the FinePix S2000HD - the first Fujifilm model to offer high
definition (HD) movie recording and output capability. The FinePix S2000HD is
a compact and lightweight DSLR-style digital camera with 10 Megapixels and an
incredible 15x optical zoom lens.
"Fujifilm has always held a leading position in the market in the long
zoom style cameras. If consumers want an affordable long zoom camera, they
choose Fujifilm," said Paul Woodall, Marketing Manager, Digital Cameras,
FUJIFILM Canada Inc. "The FinePix S2000HD leads the way in terms of advanced
features at a reasonable price."
HD Shooting Capability
As well as capturing true HD movies (at 1280 x 720 pixels) and wide
screen stills (at 1920 x 1080 pixels), the FinePix S2000HD will display
ultra-clear, high-definition photographs and movies on any HDTV. The HD-S2
Accessory Kit (optional) contains the output cable and the remote controller,
necessary for viewing high definition movies and stills from the comfort of
your living room.
15x Wide Angle Optical Zoom
Despite its compact size, the FinePix S2000HD also boasts an amazing 15x
wide angle, optical zoom covering an incredibly versatile 28 to 414mm (35mm
equivalent) range from true wide angle to ultra telephoto. From full
landscapes, interiors and large group shots to distant sports or wildlife
action, the S2000HD is ready for every photographic challenge thrown at it.
Dual Image Stabilization
The FinePix S2000HD's Dual Image Stabilization combines a mechanically
stabilized CCD sensor with high ISO sensitivities, up to ISO6400 (ISO1600 at
full resolution) for total anti-blur protection. The combination of these
technologies reduces the blurring effect of both hand-shake and subject
movement even further to provide sharp, clean and clear results even at the
longest zoom settings or in the most challenging lighting conditions.
Fast Continuous Shooting
To make capturing the perfect moment even easier, the FinePix S2000HD
boasts the ability to shoot continuously at up to 13.5 frames per second for
33 frames (3MP mode) - ideal for shooting fast moving kids, sports or wildlife
action. An enhanced playback mode allows users to show a high speed preview of
images captured in continuous shooting and for easier and faster searching
through large collections of images.
Face Detection Technology
Fujifilm's face detection technology identifies and prioritizes up to ten
faces in a frame and then adjusts the focus and exposure accordingly to ensure
the sharpness and clarity of faces in the picture, regardless of background.
After the shot is captured the automatic red-eye removal feature instantly
checks each detected face for red-eye and if found, corrects it in the camera
automatically. This saves the time-consuming process of fixing it in a PC
after the image is downloaded.
Advanced Zoom Features
The FinePix S2000HD features Instant Zoom to help capture moving subjects
at high-zoom settings with a selectable frame within the LCD screen to track
and select your subjects. Zoom Bracketing is another useful function that
enables three shots to be taken at the single press of the shutter button, at
varying degrees of high-zoom magnification (original, 1.4x and 2.0x). This
feature eliminates having to go back to your computer to crop your images
