the FinePix S3 Pro's list of enhanced features is its one-of-a-kind Super
CCD SR sensor technology designed specifically for professional photography.
This proprietary technology creates a wider dynamic range to produce images
that approach true photographic quality. As a result, the FinePix S3 Pro
will capture highlight and shadow detail often lost by digital cameras
in high contrast scenes. In addition, Super CCD SR sensor technology provides
a higher level of sensitivity, improved signal-to-noise ratio and more
natural color reproduction.
With 12.3 million (S-pixel: 6.17 million, R-pixel: 6.17 million) effective
pixels, the APS size (23x15.5mm), professional Super CCD SR sensor of the
FinePix S3 Pro offers wider dynamic range plus overall improved quality
for beautiful digital images, capturing more detail across a range of brightness
in the same image.
The FinePix S3 Pro has a unique body designed and crafted to Fujifilm
specifications. The solid, one-piece body is made from a durable polycarbonate
and has a F-mount lens fitting for Nikon lens compatibility. Dual shutter
release buttons facilitate both horizontal and vertical shooting. Newly
developed two-inch, 235, 000 pixel horizontal display delivers crisp, clear
images and approximately 100% frame coverage.
The FinePix S3 Pro is extremely efficient power-wise, running solely
on four AA Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. The PC-Sync connection allows
strobes or other external flash systems to be connected to the FinePix
S3 Pro. Flash sync speed is 1/180th of a second.
The FinePix S3 Pro offers Intelligent Flash with the D-TTL full-aperture
exposure metering system providing outstanding results with all Nikon compatible
speed lights. A first-time offering in a Fujifilm digital camera, this
allows a new level of creative lighting options for FinePix S3 Pro users.
The FinePix S3 Pro provides IEEE 1394 (FireWire) and USB 2.0 interfaces
for camera control (IEEE1394 only) and high-speed image transfer.
