The sensor, found in other new premium FinePix models including the HS20EXR and F550EXR, combines two cutting edge technologies to help deliver brilliant pictures in any lighting conditions. Whether you’re shooting outside in bright sunlight, or indoors in subdued lighting, the EXR-CMOS will come into its own thanks to the combination of a Back Side Illuminated (BSI) sensor and triple-layer EXR array. With conventional sensor design, light has to pass through a layer of wiring before it reaches the photo diodes. This reduces the amount of light hitting the sensor. But with a BSI sensor, the wiring layer and photo diodes are reversed so sensitivity is improved; a benefit that’s particularly obvious when shooting in low light conditions.
If you're unsure what settings to use the FinePix Z900EXR has an EXR Auto mode, or if you want more control, you can pick from one of three manual modes:
- High Resolution mode - for when you're after exceptional image quality. The FinePix Z900EXR uses the full 16 megapixel resolution to produce images that can printed out at A3 size straight from the camera.
- Signal to Noise mode - one to choose in low light conditions where the combination with the BSI sensor makes for superb results. To achieve this, the Z900EXR uses Pixel Fusion where it doubles the size of the pixels to make them more sensitive to light.
- Dynamic Range mode - takes two pictures and combines them to provide a range of up to 1600%. This makes light work of scenes with lots of contrast such as a landscape on a summer’s day or a portrait where the light source is behind the subject.
