Fujifilm Announces Three New Super CCD FinePix Models


Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc. continues its FinePix reputation for delivering exceptional image quality and performance with its new Super CCD models, the FinePix F601 Zoom, FinePix S602 Zoom and FinePix S2 Pro. Offering a wider choice of advanced features and a new generation of Super CCD image sensors, Fujifilm’s new FinePix cameras are again leading the growing digital camera market with innovative technology and functionality, making the capture of outstanding digital images a reality for photographers at all skill levels.

Technology Advancements: Fujifilm’s third generation, 3.11 million-effective pixel Super CCD image sensor systems for the high-end consumer and advanced amateur digital camera categories reflect significant advancements in the company’s digital imaging technology history, offering picture takers such advantages as images with 2832 x 2128 (6.03 million) recorded pixels, ultra-high ISO sensitivities, high-quality VGA movie recording and even better picture color. Fujifilm’s new, proprietary image processing method, known as Pixel Data Coupling Technology, along with a new noise reduction technology have been combined with the new Super CCD sensor system to enable the FinePix F601 Zoom and FinePix S602 Zoom to deliver ISO sensitivities all the way up 1600 in 1280 x 960 (one megapixel) mode with a minimal increase in CCD “noise.” This new system also allows for a unique vertical and horizontal “Pixel-Mixing Technology” that enables VGA-sized digital video and frame rates faster than those typically associated with digital still cameras, resulting in smoother, higher-quality movie recording.

Fujifilm’s new FinePix S2 Pro boasts a new professional-level Super CCD sensor system, which at 6 million effective pixels is capable of producing images of up to 4256 x 2848 (12.1 million) recorded pixels for stunning, detailed pictures that are sure to please even the most discerning photographer. The FinePix S2 Pro also features a CCD Raw mode, which delivers the image before it has been processed by the camera’s internal algorithmic settings, thereby liberating the pros to experiment with their pictures as they see fit.
