By  |  2 Comments

FujiFilm announced the FinePix F900EXR, a premium compact ultra zoom camera with Wi-Fi and a best-in-class auto focus at a mere 0.05 seconds. The F900EXR automatically switches between its new Phase Detection AF and Contrast Detection AF depending on the subject and scene, guaranteeing superb ease-of-use and fast, accurate autofocus no matter what the setting or shooting conditions. FujiFilm also announced a step-down model, the FinePix F850EXR, for $100 less that doesn’t include Wi-Fi, raw shooting or the ultra-fast auto focus.

The FinePix F900EXR has an improved Wireless Image Transfer function that allows users to quickly and easily upload high resolution images and movies to their Apple or Android smartphone or tablet. The F900EXR continues the tradition of superior image quality that the F-Series is known for with its speed, bright lens, intuitive use and advanced features.

The FinePix F900EXR features a 1/2” 16-megapixel EXR-CMOS II sensor that delivers superior image quality and performance – especially in low light situations. The F900EXR also uses the bright and fast FUJINON 20x wide-angle long-zoom lens (25-500mm) that produces exceptional images, along with an Intelligent Digital Zoom feature that effectively doubles zoom capability and an ultra-clear 3.0” high contrast 920K-dot resolution LCD.

The FinePix F900EXR includes a new EXR Processor II that more than doubles the performance of the first-generation EXR Processor. With a super-fast startup time of 1.1seconds, an interval between shots of 0.5 seconds, and burst-mode rates of 11 frames/second (max. 5 frames), the F950EXR offers fantastic response times that make it a joy to use and ensure you should never have to worry about missing that special shot again.

Pictures stored on the F900EXR can be viewed and selected for download on large smartphone or tablet screens for a smooth viewing experience. No wireless LAN access point or complicated ID or password entry is required, and once pictures have been downloaded to the smartphone, it is simple to upload them to social networking sites.

Sharp, Clear 20x Lens

Full HD Video with Impressive Speed
The F900EXR uses its EXR-CMOS II sensor to shoot video full HD at a smooth 60 frames per second with improved Phase Detection AF with superior color reproduction. Movie recording can be started with a single press of the dedicated “Movie Recording Button” and records high-quality sound using the built-in stereo microphone.

The Intelligent Hybrid AF system is active during movie recording for fast, precise focus.
