Fujifilm FinePix F660EXR: the travel compact camera that takes you further
January 5, 2012
Fujifilm is proud to announce the F660EXR, a premium digital zoom compact that builds on the success of the FinePix F600EXR. Though no bigger in size to its predecessor, the FinePix F660EXR uses Fujifilm's completely 16 mega-pixel EXR CMOS sensor to give users the very latest in Fujifilm's acclaimed imaging technology. Other advancements include an improved three-inch, 460,000 pixel LCD screen and innovative face tracking to ensure users never miss their intended target. Add to this the Fujifilm F-series' trademark of superb images in low-light, a Fujinon 15x optical zoom lens and a stylish, robust exterior, and it's clear that the FinePix F660EXR will quickly become an essential travel companion.
Technology at the heart
With Fujifilm's pioneering 1/2-inch 16 mega-pixel EXR CMOS sensor at the heart of the FinePix F660EXR, users are guaranteed unparalleled image quality, whatever the lighting conditions. The unique sensor combines Fujifilm's EXR and Back Side Illumination (BSI) technologies to deliver superb results. The user can switch between three EXR modes to change the sensor's characteristics according to the lighting conditions, or let the camera optimize settings in the Auto EXR mode. The camera's ISO mode can also be selected automatically and offers a range of 100 up to 3200, but also stretches to an incredible 12800 (Image size S only).
The Fujifilm EXR CMOS sensor has also been redesigned to priorities light sensitivity with a 30% reduction in digital noise over its predecessor, ensuring smoother tones in both highlight and shadow areas at higher ISO settings.
See the whole picture
The FinePix F660EXR's three-inch LCD screen has been optimized with the new Monitor Sunlight mode for displaying clear images even when viewing the screen in direct sunlight. 460,000 pixels on the LCD guarantee crystal clear images and movie to make it even simpler for users to assess exposure, explore the camera's menus and capture their unmissable moments.
Even though the FinePix F660EXR packs an impressive 15x optical zoom (24 - 360 mm equivalent to a 35 mm camera) into its pocket-sized exterior, keen adventurers never know what they'll encounter next — so for those unexpected photo opportunities, the FinePix F660EXR includes an Intelligent Digital Zoom function. This doubles the focal range with no obvious drop in quality, thanks to the application of innovative image processing to boost sharpness in selected areas without increasing digital noise.
For unmissable landscapes or scenes rich in detail, the Fujifilm FinePix F660EXR has a wide-angle field of view of 24 mm and even a seamless Motion Panorama 360 mode to capture scenes in stunning widescreen.
Go beyond still images
The FinePix F660EXR's brilliance is not limited to still capture: the camera offers 1080p Full HD movie capture at 30 fps for seamless quality and adds new face tracking. This ensures users' movies stay in focus, no matter where their subject moves. Combining the best of Face Detection and Tracking AF to precisely follow subjects' faces throughout a scene, the FinePix F660EXR's movie functionality and stereo sound recording will captivate keen videographers of all abilities. A high speed movie option allows more creative users to slow down fast-moving action by shooting an amazing 320 frames per second.
Maximize picture-taking enjoyment
As well as the exciting new technological advances contained within the FinePix F660EXR, the camera offers many premium features that users have come to expect from Fujifilm's F-series of high-powered compacts. A full-complement of exposure modes enable users to quickly capture a scene without sacrificing image quality, plus the F660EXR also offers more conventional exposure modes such as aperture priority, shutter priority and full manual to take complete photographic control over images.
Fujifilm's traditional film simulation modes are also present and allow users to experiment with their creativity when capturing their adventures on camera, while those wanting to capture the action haven't been forgotten with up to 11 frames per second possible in the Image Size [M] [S] at continuous shooting mode.
Available in four distinctive colors : black, red, blue and gold.
