FujiFilm FinePix S9100
FujiFilm adds to the wide range of Photokina-related announcements today with the introduction of the FinePix S9100 'prosumer' camera. Known as the S9600 internationally, the S9100 advances over the earlier S9000 through the use of a 9 megapixel sensor, 10.7X optical zoom, and an expanded 2-inch swivel LCD. Its ISO range has been extended as low as 80 for improved photos in bright scenes, while the autofocus response and shutter lag have been quickened to provider sharper photos of fast-moving subjects or at night. An intelligent flash system similarly helps eliminate lighting problems in low-light situations. The S9100 is set to release in the UK during October 2006 for an undetermined price and should see a North American introduction soon. Profile images of the front and back are available after the jump.
