The price in India for the Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR camera has been unveiled by the company. The snapper is part of the HS-series and it’s equipped with various DSLR-like features that allow photographers to take control of their images.
The device comes with an improved 1/2-inch 16MP EXR CMOS sensor which is touted to deliver enhanced images in almost any ambiance, especially in low-light conditions. The company has modified the photo diodes in the sensor and this results in a 30% decrease in digital noise when clicking stills at high ISO settings. The lens employed here is a Fujinon-branded one which proffers 30x optical zoom with a focal range of 24mm to 720mm that is equivalent to a 35mm lens. Through this, users will be able to snap up images of objects at far off distances. Complementing it is the Intelligent Digital Zoom function that’s said to double the focal range, enabling up to 60x magnification. This feature and various others can be accessed through the Fn button.
Unlike its predecessors, the FinePix HS30EXR is capable of rendering manual focus on different objects while recording videos in 1080p full HD resolution. Additionally, the company has thrown in face tracking AF which is a combination of Face Detection and Tracking AF technologies. The camera has been dressed with a comfortable design and a sure-grip rubber coating for an intuitive experience. It houses a 3-inch 460,000-dot LCD screen which can be titled 45 degrees down or 90 degrees up for enhanced flexibility.
It features a Sunlight Mode that aims to provide clear visuals when under bright sunlight. There’s also an electronic viewfinder that has an eye sensor which automatically turns off the LCD when users place their eye in front of it. The GUI has been updated with a horizon leveling gauge and various other new attributes. On a single charge, the snapper is capable of delivering up to 600 pictures when used in Auto mode.
