Fujifilm FinePix S5600 zoom introduction
Fujifilm FinePix S5600 zoom digital camera : Fujifilm today announced the launch of three new digital cameras, the Fujifilm FinePix S9500, FinePix E900 and the FinePix S5600 Zoom. The Fujifilm S5600 is the third generation of its powerful, mini SLR-style digital cameras with long zoom lens. Packed with features, including 10x optical zoom and Anti-Blur Mode, the Fujifilm S5600 Zoom is an impressive reworking of its popular predecessors. Beneath its robust body lie the sensor enhancements that make the FinePix S5600 Zoom punch above its weight.

Fujifilm S5600 - Right adjustments|
Adrian Clarke, Fujifilm’s Director of Photo Products, commented, "We feel we've made just the right adjustments with the Fujifilm S5600 Zoom to build upon the huge success of its predecessors without compromising a winning formula. Real Photo Technology is helping to produce unrivalled images in all lighting conditions. We’re confident that users will see for themselves that we continue to raise the bar in sensor development."
Fujifilm FinePix S5600 zoom - ISO
Complete with an unrivalled sensitivity range from ISO 64 to ISO 1600, the camera makes it possible to achieve crisp photographs with minimal noise, even in very low light conditions. The Anti-Blur Mode, which exploits the camera’s exceptional ISO capabilities, reduces blurring caused by movement of the user, as well as movement blur caused by the subject, making it much more effective than image stabilisation technology alone.
Fujifilm S5600 zoom - Fixed lens housing
The camera's impressive 10x optical zoom has a fixed lens housing and covers all settings from wide to telephoto. It's ideal for amateurs and photography enthusiasts alike who want optical power but don’t want to compromise with a heavyweight or bulky camera body. The fixed lens housing also ensures a lightning-fast start-up time and removes the risk of getting dust particles inside the lens or camera body.
Fujifilm S5600 zoom - Features
The FinePix S5600 Zoom features a high-speed start up time of just 1.1 seconds and shutter lag has been minimised to 0.01 seconds. This, combined with a new automatic pop-up flash, means that you’ll never miss out on the action. The FinePix S5600 Zoom has the power to capture large images with incredible clarity and detail in a range of lighting conditions. Moreover, the Fuji S5600 offers 30fps movie capability with monaural sound, making it the perfect choice for those wanting to create high quality home movies without the need to carry a camcorder. The Fujifilm FinePix S5600 Zoom will be available from UK retailers in September 2005. Pricing will be announced nearer to the date of retail launch.
