Serious photographers wanting the versatility and performance of an SLR system without the bulk or expense now have the perfect solution in the shape of the new Fujifilm FinePix HS10. The latest addition to Fujifilm's award-winning range of long zoom 'bridge' camera offers an unprecedented feature set that combines a powerful 30x Fujinon zoom lens with sophisticated photographic controls, advanced functionality and SLR-like handling all in a single unit. Utilising cutting-edge Back Side Illuminated CMOS image capture and class-leading Fujinon optics, the HS10's unique mix of advanced technologies brings to the market several new features designed to make achieving professional-looking pictures easier than ever
A high quality 24mm wide-angle, Fujinon
30x zoom gives incredible versatility
from an all-in-one camera
Extreme 30x Zoom
The HS10's real talking point is its incredibly versatile 30x zoom lens. This is the world's first Fujinon 30x optical zoom in a compact camera and offers users an ultra flexible zoom range of 24mm at the wide-angle to 720mm at the telephoto. This camera is ready to take on any photographic subject thrown at it and will achieve pin-sharp results.
With a barrel zoom lens you can perfectly frame shots with the hugely versatile 30x zoom by rotating the lens ring to zoom in and out to achieve just the right composition.
BSI CMOS 10 Megapixel Sensor
The HS10 features a 10 megapixel BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor which brings high speed and new features to this 30x zoom camera. The faster CMOS sensor means the HS10 is capable of breaking boundaries of 'long zoom compacts' by introducing incredible high speed shooting functions for the ultimate in performance.
Superb New Shooting Functions
You'll find it hard to miss a shot with the HS10:
Always miss the key moment? Not any more.
Try Fujifilm's Best Frame Capture technology.
Using Multi Frame Technology you can really advance your photographic expression thanks to the HS10's innovative motion based functions:
Capture every single step
with Multi Motion Capture
Pro Low-light Mode Ideal for shooting stationary subjects in low light, this mode automatically takes a series of four high-sensitivity & low-noise exposures and then combines them into an image with significantly reduced noise levels than the single exposures.
Full 1080p HD Movie & Photo Capture
Sit in the comfort of your front room and share those special memories with friends and family in stunning high definition. The FinePix HS10 features full HD for photos and videos. Simply connect your camera to a HDTV via the camera micro HDMi port you are all ready to go.
*Cable required. Sold separately
Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) with "Eye Sensor"
Put your eye to the EVF and "Eye Sensor" automatically switches the camera's display from the LCD to the highly responsive electronic viewfinder, making it even easier to compose your shots.
CMOS Shift + Digital Image Stabilisation
Nothing is more disappointing than taking a photo only to find out it has come out blurred. By combining CMOS sensor shift and Digital Image Stabilisation the HS10 can minimise blur so often caused by camera shake and subject movement, even when shooting at the full 30x zoom.
Tracking Auto Focus
Great when shooting sports and action photography, Tracking AF will 'lock on' to a moving subject* keeping it in focus for as long as the shutter button is half pressed. As soon as the shutter is fully pressed an image is captured with the subject in perfect focus, even when shooting at the full 30x zoom.
*Subjects other than people can also be automatically tracked.
Take three photos of the same subject
at different zoom settings and later
choose which one you prefer.
Zoom Bracketing Mode
A single press of the shutter takes three shots at differing zoom magnifications. The original image, a 1.4x zoom image and a 2.0x zoom image are all recorded separately and saved to the memory card so you can choose which crop you prefer.
A selectable frame on the LCD lets you bracket and track moving subjects in standard wide view and will save it as a cropped image.
Direct Shooting Buttons
Quickly access and adjust the camera's most important settings and controls with the direct shooting buttons. Conveniently located to the left of the LCD these buttons allow you to easily change settings in an instant.
Movie REC Button
A one-touch movie record button enables you to capture all the action in full HD 1080-30p movie clips with stereo audio - it couldn't be easier to shoot high definition videos.
