Fujifilm Continues to Offer a Digital Camera Line Up Suited for All Consumers

New Digicams Range From Entry-Level to Advanced D-SLR-Style Models

VALHALLA, NY--(Marketwire - August 12, 2008) - FUJIFILM U.S.A. Inc. today announced three new additions to their 2008 digital camera line up -- the D-SLR-styled, HD compatible FinePix S2000HD, the FinePix F60fd, a powerful, technology-rich compact digital camera and the ultra-compact, wide-angled FinePix J150w. Each camera offers the user a different option in features, styles and price points, meeting a full range of wants, needs and desires.

FinePix S2000HD

The FinePix S2000HD is perfect for advanced amateur photographers and sports a 10-MegaPixel 1/2.3" CCD, a powerful 15x wide-angle optical zoom (27.6mm-414mm equivalent) and an extra large 2.7" wide-view LCD. As the first Fujifilm digital camera with HD compatibility, the FinePix S2000HD has the ability to capture still pictures in a true widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio enabling distortion-free full screen playback for the clearest display possible on an HDTV. The S2000HD can also convert movies in-camera into a HDTV signal output compatible with 720p (progressive) allowing the user to realize the full benefits of their home theater system. The FinePix S2000HD is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand and will debut at the retail price of $299.95 in September 2008.

FinePix F60fd

As the latest addition to Fujifilm's award-winning F-Series lineup, the FinePix F60fd, like the FinePix F50fd before it, combines intuitive use with the most advanced features and technology available, enabling photographers of all levels to capture the moment as their eye sees it.

Featuring a 12-MegaPixel 1/1.6" Super CCD HR, 3.0x optical zoom and a new, extra large 3.0" LCD, the FinePix F60fd combines ease of use with a range of powerful features users have come to expect from Fujifilm's more advanced digital cameras.
