FinePix S5600 Zoom
Fujifilm FinePix S5600 Zoom introduced
Fujifilm are to release the FinePix S5600, a digital camera which gives the amateur and enthusiast user the benefit of optical power without a heavy or bulky body.

This camera, which replaces the S5500 model, is the latest addition to Fuji's range of mini SLR style digital cameras and features a 10x optical zoom lens. Along with a sensitivity range of ISO 64 to 1600 the S5600 enables the user to achieve crisp, clear photographs even in conditions where there is low light. The ability to achieve good image clarity is also enhanced by the introduction of new, fifth generation five megapixel Super CCD HR Sensor and Fujifilm's new Real Photo Technology.

The FinePix S5600 Zoom also offers an Anti-Blur Mode which not only reduces blurring from the all too common perils of camera shake but also helps to reduce blurring caused by movement of the subject, making it an ideal camera for shooting unpredictable subjects like animals. The minimal noise created by the camera also makes it an ideal choice for this purpose.

A start-up time of just 1.1 seconds coupled with a shutter lag of 0.01 seconds mean that with the S5600 you need never miss another shot. This camera also offers its users the ability to create high quality home movies, without the use of a camcorder, offering 30fps movie capability with monaural sound. Other features of the S5600 Zoom include a 10x optical zoom, automatic pop-up flash and both JPEG and RAW file formats.

Adrian Clarke, Director of Photo Products at Fujifilm, is confident that the S5600 will follow on from the success of previous models. He said: "We feel we've made just the right adjustments with the S5600 Zoom to build upon the huge success of its predecessors... We're confident that users will see for themselves that we continue to raise the bar in sensor development."
