Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD: High performance meets High Definition for the ultimate ‘all in one’ digital camera
Powerful zoom range and cutting-edge HDTV capabilities extend Fujifilm’s S-Series Range
Fujifilm today announces the introduction of the FinePix S2000HD, a compact and lightweight 10 megapixel digital camera with an incredible 15x optical zoom lens and HD movie recording and output. The FinePix S2000HD is the first Fujifilm model to offer full compatibility with high definition television (HDTV) systems for both stills and movies. As well as capturing true HD movies (at 1280 x 720 pixels) and wide screen stills (at 1920 x 1080 pixels) , the FinePix S2000HD’s HD output allows the camera to display ultra clear high definition photographs and movies on HDTV . The FinePix S2000HD comes with remote control and cable, so it’s all ready for action.
15x wide-to-tele zoom
Despite its compact size the FinePix S2000HD also boasts an amazing 15x optical zoom covering an incredibly versatile 2 7.6 -414mm (equivalent to a 35mm camera ) range from true wide-angle to ultra telephoto. From sweeping landscapes, interiors and large group shots to distant sports or wildlife action, the FinePix S2000HD is ready for every photographic challenge thrown at it. The FinePix S2000HD's Dual Image Stabilisation mode combines a mechanically stabilized CCD sensor with high ISO sensitivities for total anti-blur protection. The combination of these technologies reduces the blurring effect of both hand-shake and subject movement even further to provide sharp, clean and clear results even at the longest zoom settings or in the most challenging lighting conditions.
To make capturing the perfect moment even easier the FinePix S2000HD boasts the ability to shoot continuously at up to 13.5 frames per second with max 33frames (3MP mode) – ideal for shooting fast moving kids, sports or wildlife action. An enhanced playback mode allows users to select to view only movies, continuous shots or normal stills for easier and faster searching through large collections of images.
Face Detection Technology
World famous Face Detection Technology has enabled a number of advanced features that will excite both novice and more experienced photographers and make getting perfect portraits easier than ever. Face Detection operates by identifying and prioritising up to 10 faces in a frame and then adjusting the focus and exposure accordingly to ensure the sharpness and clarity of human subjects in the picture, regardless of background. After the shot is captured the automatic red-eye removal feature instantly checks each detected face for red-eye and if found, corrects it in the camera automatically, saving the time-consuming process of fixing it in your PC after the image is downloaded.
Instant Zoom is a feature which enables the user to keep the subject in the shot at long distance by offering a wide viewing area around the frame.
Zoom Bracketing is another useful function enables three shots to be taken at the single press of the button, at varying degrees of magnification (original, 1.4x and 2.0 x). This enables instant editing on the camera to choose the ideal shot, rather than having to go back to a PC to facilitate a digital crop.

If you're shooting the solar eclipse here's a hint: don't fry your camera's sensor. Use a proper solar filter that offers at least 16 stops of light filtration, along with UV and IR filtering. More important? Don't look at it unless you've got solar filters. Sensors can be replaced, your retinas can't.
