FUJIFILM BRINGS ADVANCED FEATURES TO ENTRY-LEVEL DIGITAL CAMERAS
New A-Series Models Pack a Punch with 8 & 9-MP Super CCDs, 4x Optical Zoom and ISO 800
Following in the footsteps of Fujifilm's more advanced digital cameras, the FinePix A820 and A900 both shoot with light sensitivities of up to ISO 800 at full resolution. These higher light sensitivities enable the user to shoot with faster shutter speeds, which lessen the likelihood of blurry pictures caused by a moving subject or the shake of an unsteady hand. To make it easy for consumers to achieve blur-free results, the FinePix A820 and A900 feature a "Picture Stabilization" mode in the dial setting. This easy-to-identify setting automatically chooses the correct light sensitivity and best-matching shutter speed, producing the highest quality digital pictures without blur and the noise often associated with high sensitivity photographs.
The FinePix A820 and A900 feature a new, intuitive icon-based Graphic User Interface (GUI). When users switch shooting modes, scene positions or control settings, a brief explanation of the setting is momentarily displayed on the LCD screen, taking much of the guess work out of digital camera operation. Additionally, both cameras feature a conveniently placed mode dial that provides easy access to the most commonly used shooting modes, including Auto, Picture Stabilization and Movie mode and allows 1-touch access to other pre-programmed scene modes.
The FinePix A820 and A900 also feature a "xD/SD Media Compatible slot"; a single slot that accepts not only Fujifilm's traditional xD-Picture Cards™, but also SecureDigital™ (SD) media cards. In offering these media options, Fujifilm is providing greater choice and flexibility to consumers who purchase Fujifilm digital cameras.
Fujifilm's new A-Series models also offer the following attractive features:
The FinePix A820 and FinePix A900 will debut in May 2007 with retail prices of .95 and .95, respectively.
