Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro camera
Silently behind glass and looked over by many visitors is the Fujifilm FinePix S3 PRO camera standing that has been introduced some weeks ago. The new DSLR has a respected 12.3 million effective pixels or 6.17 million S-pixels with an added value of 6.17 million R-pixels if you like. The new digital SLR camera will offer a resolution of 4256x2848 pixels and has a Super CCD SR sensor measuring 23x15.5mm. The file format will be JPEG or CCD-RAW format. The camera features a dual slot; one supports xD Picture Card and the other supports CompactFlash type II (Microdrive). The new S3 Pro features the standard Nikon F-mount so the whole range of Nikkor F-series lenses (including AF-D, AF-G and AF-S type lenses) can be used.

On the back of the camera we find the dual LCD monitors we also found on the S2 Pro camera. The 2-inch 235,000 pixel LCD monitor has approx. 100% coverage of frame, as does the optical viewfinder. Above this LCD monitor we find a small display that indicates shooting information and settings. The FinePix S3 Pro offers both high-speed IEEE1394 (for camera control and data transfer) and USB 2.0 (for data transfer). The video output supports NTSC and PAL. The DLSR camera is powered by AA-size NIMH rechargeable batteries.
