Fuji Photo Film today announced new Mac OS X-compatible digital camera. Fujifilm also announced a price reduction for the FinePix S2 Pro, which is now available for $2300. The software package will include a new EXIF Extractor and updated versions of the RAW File converter LE, RAW File Converter EX Version 2.0 and Camera Shooting Software Version 2.0. The software update is available as a free download for current owners and will ship with new FinePix S2 Pro cameras beginning in August.
The new EXIF Extractor quickly extracts the JPEG portion of the RAW data file while the original RAW data file remains untouched. The RAW data file includes pure RAW data in a 1440 x 960 JPEG file, which can be used to create sample prints or slide shows. In addition to the new EXIF Extractor, both Raw File Converter software programs include an improved sensitization control (push/pull), an improved 1/6 EV from 1/3 EV for precise judgment, camera rotation and zooming when previewing pictures.
