Fujifilm FinePix Z1000EXR: Stay connected in style

Fujifilm’s Z-series cameras have always combined the very latest in style with cutting-edge technology, and the new FinePix Z1000EXR is no exception.

05.01.2012

The camera’s super-stylish exterior contains a premium 16 megapixel EXR-CMOS sensor and Fujifilm’s latest imaging technologies for great results every time.

In addition, the FinePix Z1000EXR adds a Wireless Image Transfer function that allows users to connect their Android™ smartphone/tablet or iPhone™/iPad™ with the camera and upload high-quality images to social networking sites in seconds.

Perfect pictures, every time

The FinePix Z1000EXR’s 16 mega-pixel EXR-CMOS sensor helps users to always get great results, regardless of the conditions. The EXR-CMOS sensor has also been redesigned to prioritise light sensitivity with a 30% reduction in digital noise over its predecessor, ensuring smoother tones in both highlight and shadow areas at higher ISO settings.

Fujifilm’s acclaimed EXR AUTO mode assesses the amount of available light, establishes the type of scene, tracks motion and locates any people within the frame before applying Advanced Anti Blur technology and choosing one of three optimised settings: High Resolution Priority mode for well-lit subjects and optimum image quality, Dynamic Range Priority mode for scenes of high-contrast or High Sensitivity and Low Noise Priority mode for smooth, sharp images taken in dark environments. Users can also choose to select the modes themselves, but with EXR Auto mode’s 103 different shooting patterns that can be applied to a scene, it’s unlikely they’ll need to! 

Always connected

With the FinePix Z1000EXR, fast image upload to social networking sites no longer means low quality pictures. The camera can be connected with any AndroidTM smartphone/tablet or iPhoneTM/iPadTM via the simple download of the “FUJIFILM Photo Receiver” free app to their device, which includes easy to follow instructions to get them quickly connected.

To start uploading, users press the FinePix Z1000EXR’s touch icon to connect to their smartphone and the images can be transferred to Android™ smartphone/tablet or iPhone™/iPad™ ready for uploading to social networking sites.

Despite the advanced imaging technology contained within the FinePix Z1000EXR, the camera’s menu system is designed to be both intuitive and easy to operate. The FinePix Z1000EXR’s wide 3.5-inch LCD offers touchscreen control with multi-touch capabilities for smartphone-style navigation. What’s more, the screen offers a 460,000 dots resolution for exceptional clarity when reviewing images and movie or composing a shot.

Capture the perfect face

In addition to the advanced imaging technologies offered by the FinePix Z1000EXR, the camera also contains several features for improving the appearance of people in their photographs.

Face tracking combines Face Detection with Tracking Auto Focus to ensure any faces in a scene are always sharp, no matter where they move. The camera itself has a wide-angle Frame Assist Mirror located and specially engineered to show the whole of a scene to assist users when framing a shot of themselves.

If there’s more than one person to capture on camera, the FinePix Z1000EXR offers innovative image timer technology for both couples and groups: activating Couple Timer and the camera waits until two faces are close together before capturing an image, while Self-portrait Timer detects up to four individual faces, giving friends and family time to get ready for their close-up.

The beautification doesn’t stop when the shutter button’s pressed. After capture, users can choose to apply face retouching functions (Skin smoothing/brighten) to improve appearance even further.

Choose your own shooting style

The FinePix Z1000EXR isn’t just about still images – it also offers Full 1080p HD movie capture at a rate of 30fps for smooth and clear movies. Face Tracking Auto Focus locks on to any faces in the scene and will keep them sharp throughout filming, regardless of motion or the user recomposing the shot using the camera’s Fujinon 5x optical zoom lens. Stereo sound capture adds more realism to movies captured on the camera, and both stills and movie can be reviewed on an HD ready TV - when connected using the camera’s mini HDMI output.

When capturing still images, the optical zoom lens’ range can be extended using the camera’s Intelligent Digital Zoom function. This assesses the zones of the photo and selectively applies image processing to increase the length of zoom to 10x without reduction in quality that’s normally associated with digital zoom enhancement. And if users want to get closer, the FinePix Z1000EXR offers a minimum focusing distance of 9cm for macro pictures full of colour and sharp detail.

Substance and style

It may be packed with innovative photographic technology, but the FinePix Z1000EXR doesn’t compromise on appearances. Even though it’s only 18mm thick at its thickest point, the FinePix Z1000EXR appears even more sleek, streamlined and ready for anything.

The FinePix Z1000EXR will be available in three chic colours: pink, jade green, white.
