Fujifilm has introduced three new models to its digital camera portfolio, including the FinePix S9000 and FinePix E900 digital cameras - the world's first consumer level cameras with nine MegaPixel sensors. In addition, Fujifilm's popular S-series line now features the new FinePix S5200, offering five MegaPixels with a fully automatic point-and-shoot feature set.

These three new models will feature Fujifilm's Real Photo Technology, a synergy of the newly developed RP Processor, the 5th Generation Super CCD HR sensor and a Fujinon lens that is said to provide many benefits including reduced noise for sharper pictures, better low-light shooting, faster operation and higher shutter speeds that minimize blurriness in photos even at the high ISO setting, as achieved by the FinePix S9000 model.

The FinePix S9000 offers traditional SLR-like styling for serious photo enthusiasts and Fujifilm's proprietary Super CCD HR (High Resolution) sensor to capture nine million effective pixels - the first consumer digital camera on the market to offer such resolution. In addition to increased MegaPixels, the FinePix S9000 features a new 10.7x optical zoom with a 28mm-300 wide-angle equivalent.

According to Fujifilm, users of consumer-level digital cameras found that higher MegaPixels often meant more noise, resulting in pictures files that were big enough for enlargements, but often lacking in sharpness. With the FinePix S9000 users are said to be able to capture beautiful digital images with very little noise at the high ISO settings at full resolution.

Additional features of the S9000 include a tilting LCD screen for shooting from a variety of angles, the ability to shoot in the RAW file format, dual media slots, 30 fps video at VGA resolution, hot shoe mount for external flash systems and ultra high resolution achieved through the electronic viewfinder.

The FinePix E900 adds to Fujifilm's current E-series lineup, providing consumers with a powerful nine million-pixel sensor in a compact design.

Similar to its predecessors, the FinePix E900 is a point and shoot camera that expands with users as they broaden their imaging expertise. In addition to a 4x optical zoom and large two-inch LCD screen, the FinePix E900 also caters to users seeking more advanced features, including mode dial for easy access to common shooting functions, RAW mode and optional lens adapters. By incorporating Real Photo Technology, the FinePix E900 can also achieve higher shutter speeds that minimize blurriness in photos at ISO equivalent settings as high as 800.

Availability
The FinePix S9000 will be available in early September at $699.95. The FinePix E900 and FinePix 5200 will be available in October at $499.95 and $399.95 respectively. The FinePix S9000 and S5200 models will ship with four AA alkaline batteries and the FinePix E900 model comes equipped with 2 NiMH rechargeable batteries. All three models use Fujifilm's xD-Picture Card(tm) storage media.
