Take Better Pictures, Faster, With Fujifilm's New Finepix F10 Digital Camera
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.
In addition, 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.
Ron Gazzola, Marketing Manager, Digital Devices Division, Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc., observed, "These performance numbers are just what consumers want to hear and are possible due to yet another breakthrough technology from Fujifilm. As consumers begin to search for their second or third generation digital camera, they’ve added an important factor to the purchase equation – experience. This experience is telling them that while image quality and camera ergonomics are important, other details play a big role in their overall satisfaction. Fujifilm, through its recent research of digital photographers and years in the camera business, has identified these details and is addressing them with new advances like Real Photo Technology."
