A perfect fusion of Fujinon lens, 1/2-inch BSI EXR CMOS sensor and EXR Processor takes your picture to the next dimension.
The 1/2-inch BSI (Back Side Illuminated) EXR CMOS sensor combines an impressive 16 megapixels of high-resolution image quality with exceptionally responsive performance. Fujifilm's proprietary pixel and color filter arrays enhance both vertical and horizontal resolution, the key to 3-way capture technology that ensures the best image quality for every scene. Dynamic range has been expanded to 1600%, achieving a new level of imaging performance.
The BSI structure results in improved light reception for a significant boost in sensitivity, with available settings up to ISO 12800 for S size. An optimized signal read-out configuration significantly reduces in-sensor noise, achieving a further significant reduction in signal-to-noise ratio. The CMOS format also achieves higher readout speeds and faster image processing, enabling 8fps high-speed continuous shooting at full 16-megapixel resolution.
Just as your eyes see even the tiniest of details when looking at something in good light, HR (High Resolution) mode maximizes the full 16 megapixel resolution of the FinePix HS30EXR to reproduce even the smallest details in bright, beautiful color.
Just as your eyes see the full range of shadows to highlights in high-contrast scenes, DR mode simultaneously captures two images to produce a single image with significantly enhanced dynamic range, revealing subtle details in shadow and eliminating washout of bright areas.
Just as your eyes strive to make dark scenes as bright and detailed as possible, SN mode takes advantage of high-sensitivity to capture smooth texture and natural brightness with minimal noise.
30% less noise at ISO3200! The enhanced performance of the new EXR CMOS sensor lets you shoot dark scenes at high ISO sensitivity and capture them brighter, clearer and with less noise than ever before.
With the addition of Motion Detection, Intelligent Scene Recognition technology in EXR Auto mode automatically recognizes and optimizes white balance, focus, exposure and other settings for a total of 103 shooting patterns. In addition to recognizing the shape and color of scenes, the camera also calculates available light and determines whether a person is present, giving you exceptional photos in almost every conceivable situation.
With the ability to shoot full HD video (1920 x 1080p; 30fps/H.264 High Profile) with impressive stereo sound, the FinePix HS30EXR doubles as a high-performance video camera. Improved continuous auto focus is enhanced by facial recognition, to ensure the people in your movies are in focus and properly exposed. Movie scene recognition optimizes settings to take the guesswork out of movie making. The H.264 (MOV) file format combines high quality video with a small file size, for effortless editing on a PC.
The BSI EXR CMOS sensor maximizes high-sensitivity performance to capture stunning movies, even in challenging lighting conditions.
Add atmospheric effects to your movies with a choice of Film Simulation modes, including black & white and sepia.
From 24mm wide-angle to 720mm telephoto, dynamic zoom effects add impact to your movies. In addition to responsive auto focus, a manual focus option lets you fine-tune any scene.
A built-in HDMI port makes it easy to show movies and photos on your widescreen HDTV*.
Featuring Dual CPUs, an EXR Core, and a reconfigurable processor, the EXR Processor delivers outstanding power and speed, performance that comes into its own in Full HD Movies, high-speed continuous shooting, speedy auto focus and Intelligent Scene Recognition. Start-up is quicker, focusing is faster, and writing time after burst shooting has been significantly reduced.
The EXR Processor powers an array of sophisticated high-speed picture search and sorting functions.
A Vector Graphics Accelerator is responsible for crisp, highly legible menus and information readouts on the graphic user interface and pleasant viewing on HDTV.
Focusing in as little as 0.16 seconds*, high-speed auto focus ensures that every frame is sharp and clear, even when shooting burst sequences.
Thanks to the powerful EXR processor, the FinePix HS30EXR wakes in approximately 0.8 seconds.* In addition to quick start-up and faster focusing, waiting time after continuous shooting sequences has been reduced by as much as half compared to conventional models. That means the HS30EXR is ready to go back to work almost immediately.
Capture the action at 8 frames per second in full 16-megapixel resolution. At 8-megapixels (M size), burst sequences can be shot at 11 frames per second. Each frame can be viewed as a single shot or the entire burst sequence can be viewed in a separate window. In the case of pictures taken in continuous shooting mode, only the first frame of each series will be displayed. Press the selector down to view the other pictures in the series.
Sometimes things happen too fast for you to see them properly with your own eyes. The FinePix HS30EXR can freeze the action at up to an amazing 320fps! So you can see every single minute detail and watch things happening step by step in slow motion.
Timing your shot is ever so easy with Best Frame Capture. Half-press the shutter and the FinePix HS30EXR starts recording photos at 11fps at 8 megapixel resolution. When the moment happens, fully press the shutter button and the camera captures up to 16 frames including pre-recorded frames, giving you the opportunity to select the best shot.
Simulate the distinctive look of Fujifilm color films loved by professional photographers: the natural tones of PROVIA, the distinctive saturation and vibrant colors of Velvia, or the smooth tonality and skin tones of ASTIA. Black & White and Sepia modes can also be selected.
