Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR digital camera : Fujifilm introduces its spring 2011 digital camera collection with the undeniably and glamorous addition of the new Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR. With its good looks, feature-packed specifications and brilliant photo-taking performance, the new FinePix Z900 digital camera is set to become a must-have for Fashionistas this season. Stepping into the shoes of the Z800EXR, the new FinePix Z900EXR camera comes in an eye-catching high gloss finish and offers the latest Fujifilm’s technologies to help deliver great pictures in all lighting conditions. While the FinePix Z900EXR may be stunning to look at, it also has inner beauty in the shape of the all-new 16 megapixel EXR-CMOS sensor. |
Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR camera specifications
Specification highlights include a brand new EXR-CMOS sensor, 5x wide-angle zoom lens, touch-screen LCD screen with an improved user interface, a selection of high speed shooting modes and high quality video capture all packed into a slim camera body that’ll fit neatly into a bag or pocket. Meaning style-conscious photographers no longer have to compromise looks for picture quality.
Fujifilm Z900EXR camera sensor
Found in other premium Fujifilm FinePix models including the HS20EXR and F550EXR, the sensor of the FinePix Z900EXR combines two cutting edge technologies to help deliver stunning photos in any lighting conditions. Whether you’re shooting outside in bright sunlight, or indoors in subdued lighting, the EXR-CMOS will come into its own thanks to the combination of a Back Side Illuminated (BSI) sensor and triple-layer EXR array.
Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR sensor
With a conventional sensor design, light has to pass through a layer of wiring before it reaches the photo diodes. This reduces the amount of light hitting the sensor. But with the BSI sensor of the Fujifilm Z900EXR, the wiring layer and photo diodes are reversed so sensitivity is improved; a benefit that’s particularly obvious when shooting in low light conditions.
Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR - EXR Auto mode
The triple-layer EXR array adds further versatility by modifying its behaviour according to the picture-taking situation. Users can either let the Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR choose the correct setting itself by selecting the EXR Auto mode, or pick from three manual options:
• High Resolution mode should be chosen when you’re after exceptional image quality. The Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR uses the full 16 megapixel resolution to produce images that can printed out at A3 size straight from the camera.
• Signal to Noise mode is the one to choose in low light conditions where the combination with the BSI sensor makes for superb results. To achieve this, the Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR uses Pixel Fusion where it doubles the size of the pixels to make them more sensitive to light.
• Finally, Dynamic Range mode cleverly takes two pictures and combines them to provide a range of up to 1600%. This makes light work of scenes with lots of contrast such as a landscape on a summer’s day or a portrait where the light source is behind the subject.
Fujifilm FinePix Z900 EXR super-fast picture capture
How many shots have you missed because your current compact camera hasn’t been able to keep up with the action? The Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR camera makes missed shots a thing of the past thanks to its selection of features for super-fast capture. You can shoot up to 3 frames per second at 16 megapixel resolution, which will ensure you keep up with even the fastest action. Speed demons won’t be disappointed by the high speed video function either with an incredible 320 frames per second available, which will stop anything in its tracks.
Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR Pro Low Light & Pro Focus
The high speed functionality has benefits for more conventional images, too. The Fujifilm Z900EXR’s Pro Low Light and Pro Focus modes both capture multiple images in the blink of an eye and then combine them to deliver brilliant results. Pro Low Light will help you get perfect images in lower lighting conditions without having to resort to using a tripod or other support, while Pro Focus takes images at different focusing points to produce a blurred background; perfect for concentrating full attention on portrait subjects.
Fujifilm FinePix Z900 EXR touch screen camera
Fujifilm has harnessed the very latest touch-screen technology on the FinePix Z900EXR. The large, 3.5 inch LCD has 460,000 pixels for high image quality, plus it adds Multi Touch functionality to make it even easier to check sharpness and clarity on your shots. With the Fujifilm Z900EXR digital camera you can use two fingers to expand and reduce image size or simply swipe from side-to-side to scroll through your shots, iPhone-style.
Fujifilm Z900EXR user interface
An improved user interface also ensures that the Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR camera is easier and more pleasant to use. Pixellated graphics are so last year! Now they’ve been replaced with rounded text and graphics thanks to Vector fonts and Flash-based animation. What’s more, the improved graphics are scaleable, so you’ll benefit from the improved interface whether you’re using the camera’s rear LCD or viewing images through an HDTV via the mini HDMI output.
Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR video in Full HD
Fujifilm recognises that the world doesn’t just revolve around still pictures, which is why the Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR digital camera features high quality Full HD video capability even in low light conditions with Pixel Fusion Movie technology. Here, pixels are doubled up to make them more sensitive to low light so it is perfect for the night party season! Also, it can save as the H.264 format; which doesn’t take up as much room on the memory card as a conventional AVI file. Not only does this mean you can shoot more high quality 1080p video footage, it’s easier to share videos with friends and family via sites like YouTube, or by simply plugging the camera straight into a HD-ready TV.
Fujifilm Z900EXR camera colours
Available in four high gloss colours - Brilliant Black, Gloss Red, Hot Pink and Royal Blue - there’s a Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR digital camera to suit everyone (and every outfit!), plus its ultra slim body measuring just 18.2mm wide is easy to take anywhere.

Despite these svelte proportions, the Fujifilm Z900EXR still manages to pack in a 5x wide-angle zoom lens covering 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) so you’ll be ready to capture everything from group shots, to tightly-cropped head and shoulders portraits. Plus, there’s no need to worry about the battery running out half way through your evening; it now offers approximately 220 frames per charge. Absolutely fabulous!
