The merger of both style and substance is always high on the list of priorities for many hardware manufacturers, and Fujifilm is no different with their latest FinePix Z900 EXR. This model will be the latest addition to their range this spring, where it intends to take over where the Z800EXR left off by coming in an eye-catching high gloss finish not to mention a wide selection of Fujifilm’s latest technologies.
Beauty is not only skin dip in this matter, so we shall take a closer look at what the FinePix Z900 EXR is capable of delivering in the extended post. Basically, if you’re looking for a new digital camera and can’t really decide on what to get simply because there are too many choices out there, this consumer class model ought to fit the bill perfectly.
Inside the FinePix Z900EXR lies an all-new 16 megapixel EXR-CMOS sensor, which incidentally can also be found inside premium FinePix models such as the HS20EXR and F550EXR. This sensor will merge two cutting edge technologies that deliver brilliant pictures under any lighting conditions, regardless of whether you’re shooting outside in bright sunlight, or indoors in subdued lighting.
Of course, with the help of a Back Side Illuminated (BSI) sensor and triple-layer EXR array, your images will definitely look good since the latter adds further versatility by modifying its behaviour according to the picture-taking situation. If you want a true blue hands-off experience, then the Z900EXR can pick the correct setting itself by selecting the EXR Auto mode, although you have the option of choosing from three manual options.
Apart from that, there is also an improved user interface that makes sure the camera is easier and more pleasant to use. Gone are the days of pixellated graphics, so your eyes are treated to rounded text and graphics courtesy of Vector fonts and Flash-based animation. Other hardware specifications include :-
