Fuji Photo Film announced today that it has begun shipping the FinePix 4900 ZOOM, a digital camera with numerous manual controls, in addition to point and shoot functionality. It offers a new, cylindrical design and two shutter-release buttons for shooting either horizontally or vertically. Users can adjust 13 steps of aperture, adjust shutter speeds, focus and manage white balance manually.

The FinePix 4900 has a 6x Super EBC Fujinon aspherical zoom lens (f/2.8 - f/11) with a focal length equivalent to 35 mm to 210 mm on a 35 mm camera, along with a frame rate of 1.03 to 1.36 seconds. The camera uses a 2.4 million-sensor Super CCD with ISO sensitivities of 125, 200, 400 and 800.

Other features include:

  • Built-in, miniature LCD through the lens viewfinder;
  • A two-inch LCD playback monitor;
  • An optional lens-mounting ring for use with 55 mm filters or 28 mm wide-angle lenses;
  • AVI video capture/playback mode with sound;
  • Five programmed exposure modes: auto, portrait, scenic, night scene and full manual;
  • 64-zone TTL metering with three modes—multi, center or spot—along with programmed auto-exposure and exposure compensation;
  • Shutter speeds of 1/4 to 1/2000 of a second in auto mode and 1/2000 to three seconds in manual mode;
  • Pop-up flash, which is effective to a distance of 13 feet;
  • A hot shoe mount is also available for more advanced flash systems.

The FinePix 4900 ZOOM records JPEG images at three compression levels and TIFF images in two modes (RGB and YC). Depending on the image compression selected, users can record eight to 45 images on its 16 MB SmartMedia card at the 2,400 x 1,800 resolution.

The FineP{ix 4900 ZOOM is available now for $999. For more information, visit
