|Fujifilm FinePix Z1 digital camera review : Just before the big event the PMA show 2005 in Orlando, Florida USA kicked off, Fujifilm surprised design lovers with the introduction of the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 digital camera. This incredibly neatly designed digital camera is a real jewel to look at. The Fujifilm steals the show with a beautiful mat shaded black metal housing, and the camera shows its high class. Fujifilm has a long history in the field of photography and the camera that makes photography possible. The commencing of producing a digital camera already lies far behind us and it is a good feeling to experience the digital evolution from the construction of the first generation of digital cameras until the new Fujifilm FinePix Z1.
Fujifilm FinePix Z1 - Real Photo Technology
Despite the very compact size of the Fujifilm FinePix Z1, a mere 18.6mm thick, the camera is equipped with a 3x optical zoom and an image sensor from the 5th generation stable of Super CCD HR's. Besides the fantastic result achieved by the design department the power from the engine isn't bad either. The Fujifilm Z1 distinguishes itself from its predecessors because of the Real Photo Technology. This newly developed technology links a high quality Fujinon lens to a new blazing fast RP image processor which together combine to a perfect working combination. The first impressions showed by our Japanese colleagues are extremely promising. During our visit to Fujifilm Netherlands, a large format poster was shown, created by using the Real Photo Technology and no suspicions arose of dealing with a small digital compact camera. In short, a promising technique!
Fujifilm FinePix Z1 - 2.5-inch format LCD display
For some time now it is as a rule rather than an exception that a large format LCD display is placed on a digital camera. Also the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 features a huge 2.5 sized LCD display. This format is ideal for sharing the images and as substitute for the optical viewfinder that is no longer part of this digital camera. We might even call this LCD display 'intelligent' because it adapts to the light circumstances, so it lights up brighter under low light conditions and it gets less bright in intense light.
Fujifilm FinePix Z1 - Technology and Design
The combination of the Real Photo Technology and the beautiful design make the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 a very interesting digital camera as far as specs are concerned. More and more brands are paying more attention to design and ultra flat created digital camera models. Fujifilm indeed surprised us with this attractive digital jewel, and we expect a warm welcome by the public when the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 is available in the shops.
