Since there is no cut filter of any kind in front of the cameras sensor, the Fujifilm IS Pro SLR Digital Camera is capable of imaging a broad frquency range from the UVA (380nm) through the visible portion of the spectrum and into the near Infrared spectrum (IR below 1000nm). However, it will not capture IR heat energy in ranges above 1350nm. This makes the camera ideally suited for a broad range of applications including forensic, medical, scientific and artistic uses.
The camera is built on the same platform as the FinePix S5 Pro digital SLR system, and incorporates Fujifilm's Super CCD SR sensor that 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, dynamic range, color and tonality.
The Real Photo Processor Pro ensures that the information is handled in such a way to produce images that are beautifully vibrant, with two stages of noise reduction that delivers an impeccably clean image, and also permits light sensitivity up to ISO 3200 while achieving sharp, low-noise images. Furthermore, dark noise reduction process, subtracts the residual, ambient noise on the sensor from the actual exposure. This helps the camera produce smooth, clean images when long shutter speeds are used.
The Fujifilm IS Pro is built using a tough, magnesium alloy shell, and has weatherproofing seals in all critical areas providing a camera that is not only technically advanced, but extremely durable. This makes it well suited for both interior and outdoor location shooting. 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. The Fujifilm IS 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 a broader range of detail in their images.
The Fujifilm IS Pro Forensic Zeiss Lens Kit adds a Zeiss 50mm Makro Planar F/2 1:2 macro lens with IR focus offset markings, CCD Dust Blower, the AC-135vn AC Adapter, Peca Filter Set (9 UVIR filters and 3 step rings), 15 Foot Combo USB/FireWire Cable, a Rubberized Protective Body Armor sleeve from Made Products, and the HyperUtility HS-V3 software for tethered shooting and advanced RAW file conversion.
