Fujifilm today has announced the successor to their Finepix S9000 digital camera. The enthusiast oriented Fujifilm Finepix S9100 features a 9 megapixel Super CCD sensor, 10.7x optical zoom, and the ability to shoot at ISO 80-1600. Look for the S9100 in September for $599.
The 10.7x optical zoom Fujinon lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 28-300mm. Despite it’s long zoom, in Macro Mode you can focus on subjects as close as 0.4 inches. Auto focus speeds have been improved and a focus assist light helps out on low light conditions.
