Fujifilm has announced the FinePix Z900EXR digital camera, the latest in the company’s Z series line of stylish compact cameras and the successor to the Z800EXR. The FinePix Z900 EXR features a slim metal chassis with a horizontal sliding lens cover and is available in a choice of three colors: matte black, red or blue.
The FinePix Z900 EXR includes a new 16 megapixel CMOS sensor using EXR technology for better low light image quality, a 5x wide angle optical zoom lens (28-140mm equivalent) using folded optics so the lens does not move in and out, and a large widescreen (16:9) 3.5-inch high resolution touchscreen LCD with an improved user interface.
- A new EXR Auto mode that recognizes 27 scenes
- One-touch access to full 1080p HD movie capture
- Continuous shooting ability up to 12 frames per second using full resolution
- High speed movies at 320fps for playing back in slow motion
- An easy-to-use motion panorama mode that lets the user take full 360?? panorama shots, both horizontally and vertically
- A feature that allows users to identify and tag a photo or movie for Facebook or YouTube upload so that once the camera is connected to a PC all marked photos or movies will upload immediately to Facebook or YouTube at the press of a button.
The FinePix Z900EXR will be available in May 2011 at a retail price of $279.95. Additional information can be obtained on Fujifilm’s website.
