Click to take a QuickTime tour of the S2 Pro
The FinePix S2 Pro is built on the popular Nikon N80 chassis and offers the same
handling characteristics that photographers expect from an SLR camera. It has a Nikon
F mount and accepts every AF Nikkor and most manual AI or AI-S Nikkor lenses. It
offers a shutter speed range of 30 secs. to 1/4000 second with a continuous shooting
rate of approximately 2 frames/second up to a maximum of seven frames. To cover any
possible lighting situation the S2 Pro has a wide range of ISO equivalents ranging
from 100 up to 1600.
The S2 Pro is fully featured with four shooting modes (single frame, continuous, preview and multiple exposure) and four exposure modes (multi programmed AE, shutter- priority AE, aperture-priority AE and manual exposure.) In addition, there are nine modes for white balance (auto, fine, shade, incandescent light, two custom settings and three for fluorescent light).
The FinePix S2 Pro can record images at four resolutions (4,256 x 2,848, 3,024 x
2,016, 2,304 x 1,536 and 1,440 x 960 pixels) and in three file formats (TIFF-RGB,
CCD-Raw and JPEG). There are two compression modes (fine and normal) within the JPEG
file format, and captured images can be viewed on the camera's 1.8-inch color TFT
display. The voice annotation feature allows the attachment of 30-second voice notes
to each photo, which enables you to easily keep track of important image data.
