Finepix Camera For Photography Enthusiasts

  • Three manual options
  • Captures 1080p Full HD video
  • Anti-blur protection

Fujifilm’s FinePix HS30EXR is designed for photography enthusiasts who don’t want the lens changing capability of a DSLR, but still want control over their images.

It has a new ½-inch 16-megapixel EXR-CMOS sensor, Fujinon 30x manual optical zoom (24-720mm equivalent) and a tilting 3.0-inch, high-contrast 460K resolution LCD with Sunlight Mode and a bright electronic viewfinder for outdoor viewing.

Its EXR CMOS sensor allows it to change its characteristics according to the lighting conditions, to ensure the very best results. The improved EXR CMOS in the FinePix HS30 provides more versatility, particularly in low light conditions. When shooting in EXR Auto Mode, the camera configures each scene and recognises the perfect setting, then automatically captures the best quality image with a single touch of the button.

Three manual options are also available – High Resolution Priority for image quality, High ISO & Low Noise Priority for use in low light conditions, and Dynamic Range Priority which captures two photos and combines them to provide a wide dynamic range of up to 1600 percent.

Composing images can be done using either the electronic viewfinder (EVF) or 3.0-inch LCD. It has a large 0.26-inch electronic viewfinder with a 22-degree viewing angle and 920k resolution that features a “heads up” sensor that automatically changes from LCD to EVF. The LCD displays menus and images with clarity and also features a Monitor Sunlight mode that ensures it can be viewed in direct sunlight.

With its 30x zoom range covering focal lengths from a super-wide 240-720mm (35mm equivalent), it can shoot super macro to long telephoto shots, enabling subject matter from sweeping landscapes to fine details on wild animals.

The Intelligent Digital Zoom function doubles the focal range, delivering a 60x zoom with a maximum telephoto setting of 1440mm.

Dual image Stabilisation combines a mechanically stabilised CMOS sensor with high ISO sensitivities for total anti-blur protection. Together these technologies reduce the blurring effect of both handshake and subject movement to provide sharp, clean and clear results even at the longest zoom settings or in challenging lighting conditions.

It captures 1080p Full HD movies at 30 frames per second (fps) and delivers high sensitivity with low noise for movies captured in low lighting. Movie files (.MOV) are captured with H.264 high profile compression for smaller file sizes without sacrificing quality. Using a mini-HDMI output connector, it is easy to connect and view images on your HDTV (HDMI cable not included).

A High Speed Movie option enables capture at an incredible 320fps, which allows even the fastest moving objects to be captured and played back in slow motion.

With a strong mix of sensor and processing technologies, the FinePix HS30EXR can capture breathless action shots. The high speed continuous shooting offers full resolution up to 8ffps or up to 11fps (M setting) at a reduced resolution. The FinePix HS30EXR eliminates the need to worry about slow auto focusing or shutter lag. The new solution’s contrast Auto Focus system takes approximately 0.16 seconds to focus.
