Fujifilm announced the launch of the long zoom, SLR-styled FinePix S8100fd digital camera, which combines user-friendliness with long-zoom versatility and high speed shooting modes that are rarely found in non-professional models. Continuing on the success of the Fuji FinePix S8100fd, the 10 Megapixel Fuji FinePix S8100fd integrates a Fujinon 18x wide angle optical zoom fixed lens, letting the user achieve greater range than ever before and offers everything from true wide angle to extreme telephoto in a single compact unit. The sealed, fixed-lens system prevents dust contamination and eliminates the need for additional zoom or wide angle lenses, making it an easy-to-use, affordable alternative to the complex D-SLR system.
One thing became very clear with Fujifilm, at the Photokina 2006 : face detection is going to be it! And the technique is ready to be built in cameras standard. With this, Fujifilm can fall back on their extensive knowledge of minilabs. There, the technique has been used for years, among other things, to be able to tune colours perfectly. One of the first models with face detection is the Fujifilm FinePix S6500fd. The indication fd stands for face detection. The sensor is building another very important part of the Real Photo Technology. Fujifilm has been using the Super CCD for a long time, and the Fujifilm S6500fd has been equipped with the 6th generation already, the Super CCD VI HR.

Fujifilm USA, Inc. is introducing new Fujichrome Velvia 50 for Professionals (RVP 50), a high color saturation, high contrast transparency film at the PMA 2007 Annual Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, NV. At the beginning of 2005 Fujifilm announced the discontinuation of previous Fujichrome Velvia for Professionals (RVP) due to difficulties in procuring some of the key raw materials used to produce the product. However, since the last stocks were sold earlier last year, the company received many requests from photographers worldwide to restart manufacturing, as they had used Velvia for many years and consider it unmatched in terms of quality and character.
Fujifilm USA, Inc., announced the immediate release of the CP-49LR Frontier Chemical Cartridge. The CP-49LR is developed for use on medium-to-high throughput Frontier systems and specifically designed to reduce reduces the volume of packaging materials for disposal. Additionally, because of the 11% reduction of replenishment rate for Crystal Archive Type II Paper, less chemical waste handling and disposal is necessary. Each CP-49LR PC cartridge will process 125 m² (1,345.5 ft²) Fujicolor Crystal Archive Type II Paper, a significant increase compared to the current CP-49E cartridge capacity. This increase in capacity results in fewer cartridge changes.
