Fuji F600 EXR updates F550 EXR with enhanced GPS

Fujifilm announces the FinePix F600 EXR – a model that updates the F550 EXR by boasting new technologies to improve user experience.

GPS tagging is the latest must-have feature on compact cameras and after introducing it on the FinePix F550 EXR, Fuji has taken the technology further with the F600 EXR’s GPS Landmark Navigator. The augmented reality landmark navigator automatically locates places of interest from a built-in database of around 1 million locations, and shows you where they are and how far away they are, right on your camera’s 3-inch screen.

The 16-megapixel EXR CMOS sensor, first seen in the Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR, combines a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor with EXR triple-filtered technology. Backside illumination has nothing to do with thinking the sun shines out of its CMOS, but rather that the circuitry bits and pieces are on the back of the sensor so more light falls on the front.

A 360° panoramic image of a location makes for a great memory and the FinePix F600 EXR has an enhanced Motion Panorama mode that ensures those memories are even better preserved. With the camera’s 360° panorama functionality, each side of the panorama is connected so you get one seamless panoramic shot.

The new motion-detection feature automatically spots that a subject is moving, and keeps a high shutter speed to freeze the action, coupled with higher ISO to ensure the picture isn’t too dark. If there’s no movement in your picture and everyone’s standing nice and still — probably grinding their teeth and muttering “cheese”, or “sex” if your photographer’s a bit ker-razy — then the camera goes for a lower ISO, keeping a lid on the amount of image noise.

Other features include aperture and shutter-priority, manual control, and raw shooting. Burst mode fires up to 8 frames in a second, and there’s a panorama option too. Video is 1080p high definition with stereo sound.

The Fujifilm FinePix F600EXR comes in red, black and white, and goes on sale at the end of October for around £270.
