New Fujfilm's Finepix S7000 has 12 million pixel outputFujifilm today announce the FinePix S7000 Zoom and with it the most heavyweight imaging capability ever seen in a 'prosumer' camera. Building on the success and with all the features of the FinePix S602 Zoom - including full manual control and 6x optical zoom - the FinePix S7000 Zoom's Super CCD HR sensor produces a six million effective pixel (12 million recorded pixel) output.

Even before Fujifilm's Super CCD signal processing technology takes control of the image, photographs taken with this camera will possess six million pixels. After the Super CCD HR has processed the file, the image output is 12 million pixels - allowing the user to enlarge to 10x15in, representing gallery-size print dimensions.

This camera offers a serious digital alternative to a film SLR. A compact and ergonomic tool for professional photographers, the FinePix S7000 Zoom also represents an irresistible package for the ambitiously minded newcomer to digital photography. If you have a talent for photography, the last thing you need is to be constrained by your camera.

The FinePix S7000 Zoom's manual modes enable you to exert creative control over aperture, focusing shutter speed and flash. This, combined with the Super EBC 6x optical Fujinon lens, means that even the most ambitious images can become a reality. If you stop at nothing in pursuit of quality, the FinePix S7000 Zoom's RAW mode stores images exactly as they were recorded, pixel by pixel, every time.

Fujifilm's Super CCD HR technology also delivers the renowned Fujifilm colour reproduction, and the sensitive octagonal diodes ensure that images are awash with accurate detail, even in low-light situations.

The FinePix S7000 Zoom offers everything the serious user wants, with a cable release socket, external flash and truly outstanding Super EBC optics.
The camera also boasts VGA digital movie mode, recording at 30 frames per second (fps), with sound. An added bonus is the dual card slot, enabling the use of both xD-Picture Card and CompactFlash/IBM Microdrive cards, a combination of formats that will soon be capable of carrying several gigabytes of memory.

Adrian Clarke Fujifilm's Director of Consumer Products, commented, "The tried and trusted design of the FinePix S602 Zoom is reflected in the S7000 Zoom, with the additional benefit of awe-inspiring detail capabilities. Zooming in to check the level of detail captured will be more satisfying with this digital camera - you just keep zooming in and it just keeps giving you more."
