Real Photo Technology, the latest imaging innovation from Fujifilm, is a synergy of three key devices: a sharp Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens, Fujifilm's 5th generation Super CCD sensor and the newly developed RP Processor, which possesses all of the advance signal-processing know-how of the professional FinePix S3 Pro digital SLR camera. With Real Photo Technology users of the FinePix F10 can capture beautiful digital images with very little noise at ISO settings all the way up to 1600 at full resolution. This allows the photographer to shoot without a flash in the "Natural Light" scene position, preserving mood and reducing red-eye. Real Photo Technology also allows for higher shutter speeds that minimize blurriness in photos at even the highest ISO settings.
The FinePix F10 is fast - very fast, in fact -- on par with the industry- leading Fujifilm FinePix E550. It goes from off to ready-to-shoot in a blink of an eye: a mere 1.3 seconds. The FinePix F10 also takes the "lag" out of shutter lag, firing a scant 1/100th second after the auto exposure/auto focus locks. For even faster operation, a High-Speed Shooting mode speeds up the exposure and focusing processes, making the capture of moving subjects a snap. This operating speed instills confidence that even the most unexpected moments will be saved by the user in famous Fujifilm color.
The FinePix F10 has a large LCD (2.5 inches), great for sharing just-taken pictures with friends or family. LCDs were designed chiefly for the review of photos, but they have increasingly become the primary scene-framing tool of many consumers -- even though many lament over their performance in low-light situations. To combat this and improve low-light performance, the LCD of the FinePix F10 has a gain-up function that makes the subject easier to see, a great feature for a camera with a LCD as its primary framing feature. Equipped with a rechargeable Li-ion battery, the FinePix F10 captures up to 500 pictures per single, full charge.
EISA 2005-2006 Award "Best European Pocket Camera"
"The FinePix F10 is a consummate camera that impresses from the first sight of its elegant but sturdy exterior. Its beauty is not only skin deep, however, since its 6 megapixel image sensor captures images with excellent resolution and colour saturation. Reviewing pictures is a dream on the sharp, bright 2.5 inch LCD screen, and the very powerful battery has enough power for several hundred shots. Most impressive of all, however, is the camera's performance at high ISO ratings. Noise is low enough at ISO 800 and 1600 to safely photograph in dim light conditions without using the flash."
