The S2000HD also comes with a Dual Image Stabilisation mode that combines a mechanically stabilised CCD sensor with high ISO sensitivities (ISO 1600 at full resolution, and up to ISO 6400 at 5MP), which reduces blur from hand-shake or subject movement. It can also shoot continuously at up to 13.5 frames per second, to a maximum of 33 frames in 3MP mode, and comes with an enhanced playback mode that allows a user to search specific files by sorting images according to how they were shot (still, continuous and movie).
Face Detection Technology is also included, which can detect up to10 faces in a frame before adjusting the focus and exposure. It also comes with an automatic red-eye removal feature then checks each detected face for red-eye and routinely corrects it.
A Dual Shot Mode is also available, which shoots two images in rapid succession – one with flash and one without – and then saves it both to allow you to select your preferred image.
Other FinePix S2000HD features include 13 pre-programmed scene modes, high resolution LCD and electronic viewfinder, micro thumbnail and SD/SDHC slot.
Optional accessories include a HD-S2 Accessory Kit complete with output cable and infrared remote control for viewing High Definition movies and stills from the comfort of your living room on an HD television.
The FUJIFILM FinePix S2000HD has a recommended retail price of $399
