Combined with a new Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens, developed specifically for the FinePix ‘A’ series, the 7.3 MP Super CCD is capable of recording sharper and more detailed images, making this an ideal camera for a wide variety of subjects. Fujifilm’s Super CCD technology is also responsible for the FinePix A700’s low noise performance across its ISO 100-400 sensitivity range. Changes in the digital camera market mean that there are now many camera owners looking to upgrade on image quality without having to contend with excess complexity.
