Keep on shooting when others quit When the heavens open, most compacts and bridge cameras will find themselves quickly stowed in bags and pockets for protection, but the S1 is different. Thanks to its weather-resistant body. It can be used in wet weather or dusty conditions without the usual worries, and keep shooting while other photographers miss those all-important shots. The lens-body integrated design and sealing on approximately 70 areas are designed to allow field photography without typical worries about the weather, season or general shooting environment.
High quality, versatile lens design The S1 features a newly developed Fujinon 50x optical zoom lens (24-1200mm equivalent) with a bright F2.8-F5.6 aperture range and 3.0-stop lens-shift image stabilization. The wide zoom range and additional Super Macro mode (which allows users to focus on subjects as close as 1cm) offers a huge array of shooting styles from wide angle scenic shots to tightly cropped telephoto framing.
By effectively arranging the 2 aspherical and 4 ED lenses in a structure of 13 elements in 11 groups, high image quality is successfully achieved with reduced aberration, while superb sharpness is achieved from the centre to the edges throughout the zoom range. Fujinon's unique multi-layer coating technology, Super EBC, is applied to reduce ghosting and flare, and crisp, clear photos can be shot even under severe shooting conditions such as backlighting.
Taking the possibilities even further is
By combining a newly developed noise reduction system with its 1/2.3-inch 16.4 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor, the S1 can shoot bright, clear photos in dark scenes at sensitivities of up to ISO 12,800. The parallel processing of the S1's new multi-CPU processor has also improved responsiveness with a maximum AF speed of 0.14sec, start-up time of approximately 0.68sec, shooting interval of approximately 0.65sec and maximum continuous shooting speed of approximately 10.0fps.
