The FinePix F10 Zoom is characterized by incredibly clean images, due to its refined Super CCD sensor and 'Real Photo Processor'. These two components are the outcome of thousands of hours of research by Fujifilm's imaging technicians, and reflect the company's desire to set, rather than chase, image quality benchmarks. The newly designed 6.3 megapixel Super CCD sensor features Fujifilm's trademark octagonal photodiodes, which act as more efficient light receptors than traditional CCD structures.The new Real Photo Processor provides an unprecedented sensitivity range from ISO 80 to ISO 1600, all achievable at full resolution. This means that immaculately pure images are captured, even in low light situations, such as social events, whilst minimizing camera shake and subject movement.
Furthermore, the Real Photo Processor enables users to photograph without flash, thereby ensuring more natural-looking results, and extending the already considerable battery life.The camera's ability is further underlined by some impressive speed statistics. Improving on the quickfire FinePix F810 Zoom, the F10 Zoom doubles the screen refresh rate to an amazing 60 frames per second, whilst still having time to achieve continual autofocus. And with a shutter time lag of just 0.01 seconds, 1.1 seconds between frames for consecutive shots and just 1.3 seconds needed for start-up, this is a camera with truly rapid reactions.The FinePix F10 Zoom accommodates a generous 2.5-inch high definition LCD monitor, which features an automatic brightness adjustment function, allowing users to amend the brightness of the monitor for enhanced visibility in low light. This feature can also be adjusted manually, while a quick view window allows the user to check three previous shots on the LCD screen in addition to the live image.
