Simultaneously with the protected camera Finepix XP200, Fujitsu introduced today and another novelty – hyperzoom Finepix S8400W. The equipment of the camera lens Fujinon entered with a maximum aperture of F / 2,9-6,5, covering a focal range of 24 to 1056 mm (35-mm equivalent).
Powered by the image sensor BSI-CMOS 16 megapixel resolution and a 1/2, 3 inches, and, of course, the optical stabilization system. The manufacturer focuses on the “firing rate” camera: autofocus works for 0.3 s, On Time – 1, and the interval between recording two images – 0.5 s. In addition, Finepix S8400W supports four standard exposure modes – P, S, A and M.
Manufacturer has equipped the camera not only three-inch screen resolution of 460 000 pixels, and an electronic viewfinder resolution of 201,000 pixels. The device supports a video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 frames per second, as well as the restriction of the resolution to 320 x 120 pixels – with speeds of 480 fps. Due to the integrated module Wi-Fi Finepix S8400W can send photos and videos directly on mobile devices, in addition, due to the firmware with wireless automatic backup of data stored in the camera to your PC.

Currently, flexible displays can not be called rare. Yes, the devices based on them is not so far, but the technology is rapidly developing. Another thing is the dynamics of flexible, whose technology is even more complicated, because the softness of the potential of the material, these speakers can be performed essentially limits in getting sound. However, the company has created a special membrane Fujifilm Beat, due to which these limitations can be circumvented.
The basis of such a membrane is a polymer that becomes soft when he’s distorting perform some action (eg, rolled up into a tube.) And hard it is when it is passed through a frequency of 20 Hz to 20 kHz – in about the same range of work usual column. Continue reading Fujifilm has created a flexible technology speaker
Presented by Fujifilm camera FinePix F900EXR, according to the manufacturer, automatically focuses faster than any other camera in the world. In the wide-angle lens, with a focus on the central point, in the mode of High Performance, when the AF system Intelligent Hybrid AF, working in phase mode, uses a specially added to the image sensor EXR-CMOS II extra pixels, focusing time is only 0.05 seconds. Between modes Phase Detection AF and Contrast Detection AF focusing system is switched automatically according to the shooting conditions.
According to the manufacturer, the camera is suitable for travelers, as it turned out the light, compact, and at the same time, has a lens with a 20x zoom. The lens covers a range equivalent focal lengths (35mm-equivalent) from 25 to 500 mm. Continue reading According to Fujifilm, FinePix F900EXR camera focuses faster than anyone in the world – for 0.05 s
Fujifilm has announced the launch of a new series cameras FinePix F – FinePix F800EXR. New made in the spirit of previously released models F770EXR but, apparently, is not a substitute, but complement the latter.

The success of Apple’s patent claims against Samsung apparently turned the head lawyer of the company Fujifilm, who decided to compete with Motorola Mobility. The opposition promises to be quite interesting. First, because of patents that will be addressed in court. Secondly, the proceedings will affect developers Android – Google, and whose property is a mobile unit Motorola. Continue reading Fujifilm has filed suit against Motorola Mobility
Digital cameras, even the compact budget variety, probably have a zoom feature. You may understand that “x4” zoom mean that the zoom will move in towards the point you have aimed at, four times as close. But do you know the difference between “optical zoom” and “digital zoom”? Some of the better manufacturers explain what this is in their sales pitch for their particular cameras, others are silent. It can be a crucial thing in deciding what camera to buy, so be armed with this information before you go shopping!
Like with video cameras, digital cameras measure zoom by magnification factor. As I’ve already said a camera with 4x or 4 times zoom magnifies the image by a factor of four. This does not mean that your subject will appear 4x larger than it does to the naked eye but that it will appear four times larger than it does in the natural, original “unzoomed” lens position. In fact most compact digital cameraswill have a starting lens position that makes the subject appear further away that it does to the naked eye. This allows you to fit more into your shot. It’s a sort of mini-wide angle starter.
Optical zoom magnifies the image using the cameras optics. That’s the lenses. This means that light is passing through curved glass which in turn makes your subject look bigger in your photo. The actual quality of the magnified image depends on the quality of the lenses and coatings on those lenses. Optical zoom is the traditional kind of zoom and can produce extremely sharp images. It’s been around since well before digital cameras.
Digital zoom appeared much more recently than optical zoom. Firstly on video cameras. I had one on my very first primitive camcorder and found that the zoom was disappointing though because the quality of it was so low and grainy. That is because digital zoom produces magnification by cropping the image and up-sampling the cropped portion. The result is a loss in quality. This is because cropping reduces the number of pixels used which you can see as a blocky or blurry looking image. The more you zoom in, the fewer pixels are used to make the image, reducing quality. So digital zoom is rubbish right? Well, no, not now.
With the advent of digital photo cameras, digital zoom has become somewhat more useful. Here’s an example. You’ve taken a picture of the Taj Mahal from a distance, but want to check that you haven’t got a car park just away to the side, or a plane flying by in the distance in the top left corner. You can use the digital zoom to zoom up on it on the cameras screen. This will bring into clear sight portions of the photo. Using the digital zoom permits you to look closer at the photo and reshoot if necessary. Note that using the digital zoom to zoom up on a photo after you took it does not reframe or permanently zoom up on that photo. It is just a tool to let you see it more closely. So- yes, look, there was a plane at the top left of the Taj Mahal. Take that photo again!
Now that you know the basic difference between digital and optical zoom, the question is how much zoom do you need? If price weren’t a factor, some may assume that the more zoom you have, the better. Not necessarily. A big zoom may mean that for the reasonable price, they will have cut corners elsewhere. Most people take pictures of their friends and families. When taking photos of this kind of subject, rarely will you be zooming up from far off. In fact you’d probably do better with a camera that has a wide-angle lens, to get more of them in the shot, especially when shooting indoors. How many times has that cry gone out when trying to take a picture of everyone sitting down at the dinner table.. “Move in closer- I can’t get you all in!”
Where a powerful zoom does come in handy is when shooting vacation photos or photos of recitals or other events where you can’t physically move closer. Most digital cameras on the market today have a 3x optical zoom. This amount of zoom fits with the needs and budget of most digital camera buyers. It is now possible to get cameras with optical zoom as powerful as 15x or more. While these can be very appealing, be aware that you are sacrificing some sharpness in order to get the versatility of a lens with such a large zoom range.
Another potential downside to buying a camera with a powerful zoom is that these cameras tend to be much larger and heavier. So if having a slim pocket digital camera is important to you, you’ll probably have to forget about getting a powerful optical zoom. Most small cameras max out at 4 or 3x zoom.
As for how much digital zoom you need? Well mostdigital cameras being produced today have more than adequate digital zoom. No issue.
Just remember that the optical zoom is truly the important specification to look for. Now zoom off and start looking for your perfect camera!

The Fujifilm 3D digital camera, and saying they walked away disappointed is a bit of an understatement. Now the actual design of the camera and build quality were OK, but after that things just go downhill. The terrible UI apparently hearkens back to the good old days of 1999, and just changing something like the ISO settings required a trip through the user Continue reading Fujifilm 3D Digital Camera
