The FinePix Long zoom camera with Full HD movie, new S6800 series from Fujifilm

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is proud to launch three new bridge cameras into its spring 2013 range, the FinePix S6600, S6700 and S6800. Highly regarded for their powerful optical zoom, Full HD movie, ease-of-use and compact nature, these bridge cameras are an excellent choice.

1. Powerful optical zoom and powerful Optical Image Stabilization

The S6600, S6700, and S6800 bridge cameras are all equipped with powerful FUJINON optical zoom lenses, 26x, 28x and 30x respectively. Plus there’s no need to worry about blurry images from camera shake or subject movement, even at high sensitivities of ISO 12800, as they’re all armed with OIS (Sensor Shift). Furthermore for the more artistic among us, great results can be achieved with the clever Super Macro mode down to 2cm.

Model name Zoom 35mm format equivalent
FinePix S6600 26x 24-624mm
FinePix S6700 28x 24-672mm
FinePix S6800 30x 24-720mm

2. Fast autofocus, quick response and high image quality

These cameras all house 16 megapixels 1/2.3-inch BSI-CMOS sensors, which captures excellent quality low noise shots at sensitivities as high as ISO 12800. With autofocus speed of 0.3 seconds*, start-up times of 1.0 seconds*, a 0.5 seconds interval* between shots and a continuous shooting speed of 10fps (MAX.10frames, full resolution)*, you’ll never miss another shot. What’s more, ultra-high–speed shooting of up to 60fps (MAX. 60 frames, image size 1280 x 960)* and up to 120 fps (MAX. 60 frames, image size 640 x 480)*, is also available enabling you to capture the action in slow-motion.

3. Full HD movie recording 1080i/60fps with stereo sound

Movie recording is as easy as taking pictures, with a dedicated Movie button to start recording instantly. The high resolution, 1080i movie capture at 60fps and slow-motion capture at 480fps** is superb when played back on HD TV screens and what’s more, still photos can also be taken during video recording thanks to the ingenious, multi-tasking design. With a number of advanced movie-editing features, including “movie trimming” to cut unwanted footage from movies, and “movie join” to merge multiple separate clips into a single movie.

4. Advanced Photographic Support

Along with the easy grip surfaces, there is a convenient secondary zoom control on the side of each camera’s lens barrel, which provides you the option of adjusting the zoom with your left hand. For hassle-free photography the user can choose from three zoom speeds, or use the Auto Return Zoom control to reach high-magnification focal points. S6800 series come with a Mode Dial to change shooting modes easier.
