Fuji has today announced the FinePix S3500 Zoom, a replacement for the FinePix S3000 Zoom. The new model retains the metallic silver look of its predecessor as well as the 6x zoom but it now offers 4 million effective pixels and PictBridge connectivity. It maintains the SLR styling and electronic viewfinder and also offers movie capture at 10fps.
Fujifilm launches four megapixel successor to popular FinePix S3000 Zoom
28 July 2004 Fujifilm today unveils the FinePix S3500 Zoom, an affordable SLR-shape digital camera that weds smooth metallic looks and super-zoom technology with an ultra user-friendly format.
Retaining the desirable features of its predecessor, the acclaimed FinePix S3000 Zoom, the introduction of a four megapixel sensor means images can be reproduced to a larger size than before. The addition of PictBridge compatibility also allows for printing without the need for a PC or Mac.
While the enhanced pixel count means users can capture the minute detail of your composition, the powerful six times optical zoom lens (equivalent to 39 - 234mm on a 35mm camera) allows photographers to home in on the action.
Furthermore, this versatile camera offers intuitive handling for manoeuvres such as switching from LCD display to electronic viewfinder, or taking advantage of the six flash modes - allowing optimum results to be achieved in any conditions. No matter what your level of expertise, the contemporary ergonomic exterior and metal-look housing of this SLR-style camera conjure up an unmistakably professional look, with results to match.
Indeed, further noticeable improvements are the faster shot-to-shot and shutter lag times, so the chances of missing a great photograph are very remote.
A frugal consumer of 4 x AA alkaline or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries,
the FinePix S3500 Zoom is a travel companion that goes the distance.

Adrian Clarke, Fujifilm's Director of Consumer Products, commented, "Whilst adhering to a proven principle, the FinePix S3500 Zoom goes one step further, maintaining an inviting look and feel, and introducing more performance to enhance results. The added refinements keep this camera up-to-date and uphold its good-all-round nature, while offering exceptional value for money."
