FinePix E900 Zoom
Fuji have created a first with the launch of the FinePix E900 Zoom, the latest addition to the highly specified 'E' range, which is the first camera on the market to offer a massive nine megapixel image size. Described by Fujifilm's Director of Photo Products Adrian Clarke as a 'feature-packed compact that doesn't compromise on image quality',
the E900 Zoom is capable of producing huge photo enlargements which can be printed without losing any of the images original quality or detail. With a 4x optical zoom and sensitivity range of ISO 80 to ISO 800, the E900 is ready for use in all conditions. Adrian Clarke said: "This camera has been designed with a powerful sensor that, when combined with Real Photo Processor technology, helps achieve superb photos in situations that would confound normal digital cameras."
One useful feature of the E900 Zoom is the availability of a post-shooting Highlight Warning. In using this photographers are able to see areas of an image which may be affected, or spot exposure issues, before they commit to a final shot. This Highlight Warning not only saves time and effort on the part of the photographer, but also eliminates disappointment caused by poor photographs.
This camera's compact style makes it a good choice for photographers who spend a lot of time on the go. With this in mind, the E900 Zoom was designed to provide comfort and ease of use, and also features a solid 'grip' for easy handling and use when on the move. Another benefit of the E900 is a rapid start-up time of 1.3 seconds, which along with a near instantaneous shutter response should suit those who like to pull out their camera and shoot spontaneous pictures. The high sensitivity of the E900 also helps to reduce camera shake and the resulting image blur, which again makes it ideally suited to those who like to snap pictures on the go.
