Press Release

NEW FINEPIX S6000FD DIGITAL CAMERA MARKS DEBUT OF FUJIFILM'S FACE DETECTION TECHNOLOGY
New Breakthrough Works with Other Real Photo Technology Features to Produce Better Pictures


Valhalla, NY, July 12, 2006 - Fujifilm continues to make top-quality picture-taking a snap for consumers with today's introduction of the SLR-styled FinePix S6000fd, the first digital camera in Fujifilm's line-up with the company's new Face Detection Technology.

Face Detection Technology operates exactly as its name implies, identifying up to 10 faces in a framed scene. Once faces are identified and prioritized, the 6.3 MegaPixel FinePix S6000fd adjusts its focus and exposure accordingly to ensure the sharpness and clarity of human subjects in the picture, regardless of background. And since it is hardware rather than software based, Fujifilm's Face Detection Technology works in as little as 0.05 seconds, faster than similar in-camera detection systems currently on the market or soon to be available. Quicker operation reduces the likelihood of missed or blurry photos, frustrations often associated with digital photography.


Face Detection Technology is the latest addition to Fujifilm's suite of Real Photo Technology digital camera components that work collaboratively on the FinePix S6000fd to produce the best possible photographs. One of those components is i-Flash, the intelligent flash system introduced by Fujifilm earlier this year on the FinePix F30 compact digicam. The system reads scene conditions and adjusts its flash power output and exposure automatically, based on gathered information. The results are backgrounds with finer detail and sharp, accurate subjects without the 'washed out' look that often accompanies flash photography. Together, the Face Detection and i-Flash technologies will produce photographs with prominent subjects exhibiting pleasing, natural tones.

Like the FinePix F30, the FinePix S6000fd has a full-resolution ISO equivalency of 3200, a rarity in consumer-level digicams. Such high light sensitivities allow for faster shutter speeds, which reduce blurring caused by both camera shake and subject movement. This marriage of higher sensitivities with a faster shutter is the basis for Fujifilm's Picture Stabilization, another feature found on the FinePix S6000fd. The easy-to-access feature (selectable on the mode dial) enables the FinePix S6000fd to automatically choose the correct light sensitivity and best-matching shutter speed for the scene.

Other helpful features found on the FinePix S6000fd for top-quality picture-taking include:

Dual Shot Mode: In this mode the FinePix S6000fd quickly shoots two images in succession -- one with and one without the flash -- saving both. This convenient function lets the user perform an on-the-spot picture comparison and decide which photo is the most pleasing.

The FinePix S6000fd is equipped with a 28-300mm Fujinon 10.7X optical zoom lens with full manual control via the lens barrel. This high-quality Fujinon lens configuration offers tremendous flexibility for either zoom or wide- angle shots almost like having two lenses in one, and without the risk of dust accumulation that comes with having to change lenses.

Due to come to market in September, the FinePix S6000fd will sell at a price of $499.95.
