Fuji
Photo Film U.S.A., Inc. has announced that the FinePix S3 will be available
in October, 2004 with a number of previously unannounced features, including
adjustable dynamic range and film simulation modes.



New feature highlights of the FinePix S3 Pro include:

Improved Dynamic Range -- The unique double photodiode design (6.17
million S-pixels and 6.17 million R-pixels) of the Super CCD SR II sensor
is said by Fuji to produce dynamic range approximately 400% greater than
that of CCD working on a single-pixel design, capturing the finest detail
in even the highest contrast scenes.

Adjustable Dynamic Range No longer confined within a small, fixed space,
professional photographers will have the option to adjust the camera's
dynamic range, changing the mixing ratio between the FinePix S3 Pro's
"S" and "R" pixels.



Film Simulation Modes

Photographers that favor the look and feel of film can replicate the results
of various chrome and negative films while shooting digitally with the
FinePix S3 Pro.



Color Spaces

The FinePix S3 Pro will offer a choice of sRBG and Adobe RGB to generate
the color best suited for the job.



Selectable RAW capture modes

Sometimes, a smaller file is needed. With the FinePix S3 Pro, the user
will be able to "turn off" the expanded dynamic range function
without losing resolution.



Lightning-Fast Start-Up

The FinePix S3 Pro goes from off to ready-to-shoot in one-half second
with any compatible media type.

The FinePix S3 Pro package will include Fujifilm's own HS-V2 Hyper-Utility
software, a workflow enhancement tool that acts like a digital lightbox,
helping photographers pick their best images.
