Fujifilm FinePix E900 Zoom: the power-packed compact
Highly specified compact armed with nine megapixels, high sensitivity and super-fast response times in a pocket-friendly body
Fujifilm today announces the launch of the FinePix E900 Zoom, the latest addition to its highly specified ‘E’ series range of digital cameras. This new generation compact is the first of its kind to deliver 9.0 million pixels, and offers a 4x optical zoom and a sensitivity range of ISO 80 to ISO 800, ensuring this feature-laden model is always ready for action – whatever the photographic conditions.
Underneath its solid matt black exterior lies a powerful 5th Generation Super CCD HR sensor delivering ultra-high resolution and a massive nine megapixel image size. Furthermore, the FinePix E900 Zoom is a camera that enables huge photo enlargements that can be printed without loss of image quality or detail.
Fujifilm’s Real Photo Technology enhances the photographic experience further by capturing pin-sharp images with low noise, even at high sensitivity settings. What’s more, the FinePix E900 Zoom’s broad sensitivity range means that it can handle most lighting conditions.
Its high-speed start-up time of 1.3 seconds, near instantaneous shutter response and high sensitivity capabilities help minimise camera shake and image blur – making this versatile compact, the perfect picture-taking companion for spontaneous moments.
In addition, Fujifilm has incorporated a post-shooting Highlight Warning feature as part of the histogram display, which provides the photographer with an opportunity to view affected areas of an image, or spot exposure issues before committing to the final shot – saving time, effort and disappointment at a later stage.
The FinePix E900 Zoom is a durable compact that has been designed with comfort, ease of use and image satisfaction in mind. Available in black with metallic silver trim, it features a solid ‘grip’ making it easier to hold and operate when on the move.
For budding movie pros keen to have the flexibility to capture still and moving images, the FinePix E900 Zoom also includes a TV-quality video function with zoom feature, capable of capturing 30 frames per second. Furthermore, the large two-inch LCD screen makes it easy to view movies and share the action, without the need to rely on a TV screen.

- 5th Generation Super CCD HR sensor delivering 9.0 million pixels

This camera has been designed with a powerful sensor that, when combined with Real Photo Processor technology, helps achieve superb photos in situations that would confound normal digital cameras.”
