Fujifilm FinePix Z950EXR camera lens
The 5x bending optical zoom 28mm wide angle Fujinon lens was a popular feature of the previous model, the FinePix Z900EXR. On the new Fujifilm Z950EXR the 5x zoom lens gets combined with the newly developed Intelligent Digital Zoom function to achieve 10x zoom, while still delivering high-resolution pictures. All these features are packed into a stylish body that measures just 15.2mm at its thinnest point. The Fujifilm FinePix Z950EXR compact camera fits easily into a pocket, yet is capable of handling a wide range of scenes from broad landscapes to distant subjects.
16 Megapixel Fujifilm FinePix Z950EXR sensor
The Fujifilm FinePix Z950EXR is equipped with the 16 Megapixel EXR CMOS sensor, which uses Fujifilm's proprietary EXR technology that examines each scene and switches between three modes (High Sensitivity and Low Noise / Dynamic Range / High Resolution) to achieve the optimum picture quality in bright scenes, dark scenes or even in high contrast conditions.
• The “High Sensitivity and Low Noise” mode is ideal for night scenes and indoor situations with poor lighting and provides clear and sharp images with high sensitivity while reducing the amount of noise by up to one eighth.
• The “Dynamic Range” function delivers a dynamic range of up to 1600% to capture subtle details while eliminating washout of bright areas.
• The “High Resolution” mode takes full advantage of the best-in-class 16 megapixel resolution to reproduce the finest details in landscape and portrait scenes.
EXR Auto function on the Fujifilm Z950EXR
The new EXR AUTO function has been further advanced on the Fujifilm Z950EXR to automatically determine the optimum shooting mode for each scene. The Fujiflilm FinePix Z950EXR not only handles scene recognition (night views, beach, blue sky, etc.), detects persons and identifies backlight conditions, but also offers the new Motion Detection feature. The EXR CMOS Sensor then automatically selects the optimum mode out of a total of 99 different shooting patterns, an increase from 49 in the Z900EXR, to capture any scene with the highest possible image quality.
Fujifilm FinePix Z950 EXR Anti Blur mode
The Fujifilm FinePix Z950EXR digital camera also features the new Advanced Anti Blur mode, which corrects blurring by sequentially shooting 4 images at high sensitivity and overlapping them with advanced image processing technology. The Fujifilm FinePix Z950 EXR produces images with minimal blur and noise in hand-held shots, and even for poorly-lit night landscape or blur-prone high zoom shots.
Fujifilm FinePix Z950EXR touchscreen display
The Fujifilm Z950EXR camera offers a wide 3.5" touchscreen display for smooth operability. The Fujifilm FinePix Z950EXR supports multi-touch operation with two fingers. For replayed images alone, users can use pinch and reverse pinch actions to shrink or enlarge an image on the display. The high resolution wide screen with touchscreen operation contains approximately 460,000 dots and a wide viewing angle of 160 degrees in the up/down and left/right directions.
