|This camera offers a serious digital alternative to a film SLR. A compact and ergonomic tool for professional photographers, the FinePix S7000 also represents an irresistible package for the ambitiously minded newcomer to digital photography. If you have a talent for photography, the last thing you need is to be constrained by your camera. |
The FinePix S7000's manual modes enable you to exert creative control over aperture, focusing shutter speed and flash. This, combined with the Super EBC 6x optical Fujinon lens, means that even the most ambitious images can become a reality. If you stop at nothing in pursuit of quality, the FinePix S7000's RAW mode stores images exactly as they were recorded, pixel by pixel, every time.
Fujifilm's Super CCD HR technology also delivers the renowned Fujifilm colour reproduction, and the sensitive octagonal diodes ensure that images are awash with accurate detail, even in low-light situations.
The FinePix S7000 offers everything the serious user wants, with a cable release socket, external flash and truly outstanding Super EBC optics. The camera also boasts VGA digital movie mode, recording at 30 frames per second (fps), with sound. An added bonus is the dual card slot, enabling the use of both xD-Picture Card and CompactFlash/IBM Microdrive cards, a combination of formats that will soon be capable of carrying several gigabytes of memory.
