Fuji Photo Film now makes it more affordable than ever to get into professional
digital photography by merging Fujifilm's Super CCD image sensor technology with
Nikon's N60 SLR camera to create the FinePix S1 Pro. This camera uses a Nikon
F lens mount so photographers with a substantial investment in Nikkor lenses
can make the move to digital as economically as possible.
The FinePix S1 Pro has a 1.1 inch Super CCD sensor that delivers ultra-high resolution 3042 x 2016-pixel images files. Other features include a 1.5 frames/second burst rate (up to five frames), adjustable ISO sensitivity of 320/400/800/1600, shutter speeds from 30 to 1/2000 seconds and both SmartMedia and CompactFlash Type II card slots.
Choose from a variety of exposure modes: General Purpose Program, Auto-Multi
Program (Flexible Program possible), Shutter-priority, Aperture-priority, 5
Variable-program modes (portrait, landscape, close-up, sport, night scene) or
full Manual. 3D Matrix exposure metering with D-type AF Nikkor lenses,
6-segment Matrix with non-D-type AF Nikkor or AI-P Nikkor lenses and
Center-weighed in Manual exposure mode or with AE Lock. 3 EV range of exposure
compensation in 1/3 EV increments. White Balance settings for Auto, Sunny,
Shade, Incandescent, 3 modes for Fluorescent or Custom.
On the back is a 200,000 pixel 2-inch TFT color LCD. There's also an illuminated
monochrome data LCD that allows you to change record and playback features
without using the big color LCD. Image playback is available in fullscreen with
zoom (up to 19x !), four or nine thumbnails plus a master histogram indication as well as
histograms for each color channel.
Looking down on the top, the S1 Pro has all the same camera features as the Nikon
N60. On the left is the Mode Dial (more on this on the next page) and selftimer
button, Nikon-TTL flash hot shoe, shutter release (with threaded hole for
cable release), power switch, exposure compensation, aperture and flash mode
buttons plus the large data LCD for the camera settings.
As you'd expect from a professional camera, the S1 Pro has a wide and flat
bottom and mounts securely on a tripod. The access door is for the camera
batteries, not to be confused with the digital section's batteries.
