According to Kenichi Tanaka, MD,

FUJIFILM India, “ href="">FUJIFILM

is the undisputed leader when it comes to

innovation. Time and again we have been introducing features and

products that are world's first. Be it the 'dog/cat detection'

feature for pet lovers in the F80EXR model or the 30x optical zoom in

the HS10 model, we intend bringing the latest to the fore for our

discerning customers.” A Rajkumar, Country GM-DSC, FUJIFILM

India, said, “Launch of 14 new digital camera models by FUJIFILM is

sure to take the market by storm. This shall not just add to our

portfolio of offerings but to our repute as well. The company sees

India as an important market and is committed to bringing the latest

of its offerings to the market here.”


FUJIFILM has also launched four sleek

models of its 'J series' family cameras (JV100, JV150, JX200 &

JX250) that come with sophisticated looks and enable users to shoot

images in HD. These cameras are loaded with features like razor sharp

Fujinon zoom lenses, Scene Recognition Auto, Panorama Shooting Mode,

Movie Mode with Sound, Picture Search etc. The Smile and Shoot Mode

works with FUJIFILM's highly-acclaimed Face Detection technology to

detect smiles on faces. It will not take a picture until it detects a

smile. Another new feature is Blink Detection which warns users if

they have captured an image with people blinking, so that they can

re-shoot if necessary. The newly launched JV and JX models have a new

feature, 'Targeting AF', which is perfect in case users need to take

a picture of a moving subject and can not keep the subject in the


The company has announced a new

long-zoom compact camera, the FinePix JZ300 that encompasses style,

substance and affordability. With a 10x optical zoom, 28mm wide-angle

lens, advanced CCD-shift image stabilization system, HD image and

movie capture, 2.7-inch LCD screen and a 12 mega pixel resolution,

the JZ300 offers features that suit a wide range of consumers.

For those who avidly upload images on

Facebook or share videos on YouTube etc, FUJIFILM has a new delight

in FinePix Z700, a social networker. Successor to the popular FinePix

Z series of cameras, this fun and fashionable camera has an

impressive feature set with 12 mega pixel resolution, a Fujinon 5x

optical zoom, HD image recording and a new YouTube/Facebook easy Web

upload facility.


FUJIFILM has added HD capability to its

high-performance 2010 digital camera line-up (FUJIFILM FinePix S1800

& S2500HD) as well. These 12 mega pixel cameras are built around

new 15x zoom and 18x zoom Fujinon lenses and use FUJIFILM's

proprietary image processing. Along with several other features the

'S series' also includes advanced features such as Instant Zoom, Zoom

Bracketing, pre-programmed scene modes, micro thumbnail, natural

light with flash mode, and photographic control.

An improvisation over the

multiple-award winning FUJIFILM FinePix F70EXR, comes with the new

jewelry-like F80EXR, a 10x zoom compact with a new high-resolution 12

mega pixel Super CCD EXR sensor, 3-inch large high contrast LCD

screen, Face Recognition Technology, HD video capture, Super

Intelligent Flash, Film Modes, DSLR-like effects with Pro-focus mode,

Pro low-light mode, Tracking AF, EXR Priority Modes and EXR Auto

Modes, Dual Image Stabilization, and the world's first dog/cat

detection capability.

FUJIFILM has developed a new Pet

Detection feature. It is difficult to get cats and dogs to sit still

long enough to take a good shot. In the Scene Mode settings, 'Cat and

'Dog' are two new modes which ensure that users get a good picture of

the pet. This works in a similar way to Face Detection, but can only

take front on images, not profile shots. What's more, with the

optional waterproof case and underwater mode, the revolutionary

F80EXR allows users to dive into another world of photography. The

new Auto Picture Rotation feature added means that whether you have

taken a landscape or portrait image, you can enjoy your pictures

whichever way around you are holding the camera, as the image will

rotate in the screen or PC to suit.


One of the more advanced cameras

launched by FUJIFILM amidst its new introductions is the FinePix

HS10, an extreme long zoom camera with high-speed capture and unique

features. This FinePix features world's first 30x optical zoom with

manual zoom mechanism, advanced photographic features and full HD

movie capture. Serious photographers wanting the versatility and

performance of an SLR system without the bulk or expense can go for

FinePix HS10. This addition to FUJIFILM's award-winning range of

big zoom 'bridge' cameras offers an unprecedented feature set

that combines a powerful 24-720mm (30x) zoom lens with sophisticated

photographic controls, advanced functionality and SLR-like handling

in a single compact, affordable unit.
