The Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro Digital Camera combines the superb image capture capability of Fujifilm's Super CCD SR sensor with a fully functional and durable professional metal alloy SLR camera body. The Super CCD SR Pro uses a unique layout of twelve million paired photodiodes (6.17 million larger 'S' photodiodes for main image information, combined with 6.17 million smaller 'R' photodiodes for bright area information), and delivers improvements in noise reduction, dynamic range, color accuracy and tonality. Furthermore, the Real Photo Processor Pro ensures optimized image quality with two stages of noise reduction that delivers an impeccably clean image, and also permits light sensitivity up to ISO 3200 whilst achieving sharp, low-noise images - regardless of the shutter speed.
The FinePix S5 Pro also affords the user much greater control over the unique image parameters that its technology provides. Six stepped dynamic range settings between 100% (normal dynamic range) and 400% (dynamic range expanded by two stops) will enable the photographer to achieve exactly the tonal feel to their images that they want. In addition, three distinct settings for the 'negative film' preset option will further enhance the customizable nature of the camera, giving portrait photographers precisely the 'look' that they have in their mind's eye.
The FinePix S5 Pro is not only ergonomically designed to be comfortable to handle, it also incorporates a tough, magnesium alloy shell, with weatherproof seals so it is equally at home in the studio, or on a nature assignment in a humid rainforest - thereby truly deserving of the term 'workhorse'. The camera's shutter mechanism is also a testament to its durability, as it has been tested to exceed the key benchmark of 100,000 cycles without failure.
