Fujifilm's FinePix F700 Zoom gains widespread plaudits - Fujifilm enjoys a month of acclaim in magazine polls for the FinePix F700 digital camera
Fujifilm's digital photography expertise has been recognised by a series of accolades and award successes in the past month.
Following its launch in July 2003, the FinePix F700 Zoom has received a series of commendations for its winning combination of style, speed and ground-breaking sensor technology. The compact digital camera was the first to incorporate Fujifilm's innovative Fourth Generation Super CCD SR. The new sensor enables the user to capture highlight and shadow detail missed by conventional digital cameras, resulting in images of stunning quality. Fujifilm has dubbed this advance 'High Fidelity PhotographyTM ', a reference to the sensor's extraordinarily faithful rendition of detail.
