Fujifilm has unveiled its new fully-loaded FinePix Z900 EXR point-and-shoot camera. The Z900 has a 16-megapixel, backside-illuminated CMOS sensor that is especially sensitive to light. The camera is an upgrade to the Z800 model and will retail for $280.
The Z900 is the latest model in Fujifilm’s Z-series stylish compact camera line. But the camera is more than just glossy good looks and an 18.2mm thin metal body—it also packs an impressive array of features. It has a wide-angle, 5x optical zoom lens; shoots full 1080p HD movies; and sports a 3.5-inch wide LCD touchscreen. The camera is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at up to 12 frames per second (fps), and can capture high-speed videos at an impressive 320 fps. Other fun modes include 360-degree panoramas, face detection, and red-eye removal.
The Z900 also includes a couple of features that make it easy to share images. On the camera’s touchscreen, you can set aside photos or videos that you want to upload to Facebook or YouTube. When you upload the marked images to your computer (which will need to have the camera’s FinePix Studio software installed), it should only take a click of a button to transfer them to your desired social networks. If social networking isn’t your style, then you can use the camera’s mini-HDMI port to display your images on your HDTV.
The FinePix Z900 EXR camera will come in three colors: red, blue, and matte black. It will be available in May for $280.
