Fujifilm’s latest FinePix camera, the HS30EXR is now available.
As the latest camera in Fujifilm’s market-leading bridge range, the FinePix HS30EXR, offers photographers and enthusiasts the versatility of a DSLR but without the price, bulk or complication. Available now with an RRP of £399.99
The HS30EXR includes a number of key specification improvements over the previous HS20EXR. The Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) has been greatly improved while a switch in power supply to a Lithium-ion rechargeable battery delivers up to 600 pictures per charge. These are just some of the changes that ensures the HS30EXR will keep the Fujifilm name at the forefront of the bridge camera market.
New sensor, even better pictures
The FinePix HS30EXR features an improved EXR-CMOS sensor, which gives the user even more versatility, most notably in low light conditions. By redesigning the shape of the photo diodes used in the EXR-CMOS sensor, the images display 30% less digital noise at higher ISO settings, which results in smoother tones and better low light images.
Never miss a shot
Composing images can be done using either the 3-inch tilting LCD or the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), which is larger at 0.26-inches and features 920,000 dots, making for a far clearer viewing image.
The whole picture taking experience has also been improved with a quick start up time and faster writing periods.
A lens for every occasion
Sitting at the heart of the HS-series is a Fujinon 30x optical zoom lens offering a huge focal range from 24-720mm (equivalent to a 35mm camera). This enables photographers to tackle almost any type of subject matter from sweeping landscapes to fine details on wild animals.
But there may be occasions when users require even more telephoto power to pull in really distant details and, thanks to the Intelligent Digital Zoom function, this is now possible. The focal range can be doubled to deliver a massive 60x zoom with a maximum telephoto setting of 1440mm. What’s more, the Intelligent Digital Zoom function doesn’t suffer from the problems typically associated with digital zoom capabilities. This is achieved through intelligent image processing where the HS30EXR boosts sharpness in selected areas without increasing digital noise.
