Fuji Photo Film USA has introduced a new digital camera to its lineup, the FinePix 4700 Zoom. The new 4700 offers 4.32 megapixel resolution. Its the first camera in Fuji's line to use a new Super CCD, which uses 2.4 million sensors, fewer than previous Fuji cameras, which the company says helps to produce a better image. The camera also offers a 3x aspherical optical zoom lens; equivalent ISO sensitivities of 200, 400 and 800; pop-up flash; USB port; five programmed exposure modes; and the ability to capture 80 seconds of continuous AVI video with sound on its bundled 16 MB SmartMedia card. Other features include:

  • A wheel situated on top of the camera for selecting modes;
  • A 2" LCD;
  • An illuminated function display that glows red during record mode and green during image or video playback;
  • A focal length equivalent to a 38-114 mm zoom on a 35 mm camera;
  • Macro capability to 11.8 inches;
  • Zoom adjustable in 0.2x steps;
  • Five programmed exposure modes: auto, portrait, scenic, night scene and full manual;
  • Three metering modes—multi, center or spot—and 64-zone TTL metering with programmed auto-exposure;
  • Shutter speeds ranging from 1/2,000 second to three seconds;
  • Five flash modes: automatic, red-eye reduction, flash on demand, flash cancel and slow synch flash for motion effects.

The camera measures 3.1" W x 3.8" H x 1.3" D and weighs in at nine ounces. Two included AA nickel-metal hydride batteries power the camera, which is bundled with two additional batteries and a charger. Adobe PhotoDeluxe 3.0 Home Edition is included.

The 4700 is available now for $799, down from its originally announced price of $999. For more information, visit
