The folks at â€œCSIâ€ have a new camera to look forward to in their crime scene investigations. Fujifilm has announced the IS Pro which promises to make it even easier for law enforcement agencies to get into ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) investigative photography.
The new Fujifilm IS Pro is an update to the highly successful FinePix S3 Pro UVIR and Fujifilm IS-1 cameras, refining their forensic and scientific UV/IR imaging capabilities.
The IS Pro utilizes Fujifilm’s Super CCD Pro and Real Photo Processor Pro technology to see light from the ultraviolet (UV), visible and infrared (IR) portion of the spectrum (approx. 380nm – 1000nm). This feature has been proven to be invaluable to the technical, law enforcement, medical research and scientific communities.
To accommodate the different needs of its specialized customers, Fujifilm has produced several system packages for the IS Pro digital SLR. These system packages range from the basic camera kit to advanced full system kits, along with a new set of UV and IR filters.
The four kits available in the U.S. come with a free online introduction to Fujifilm Forensic Infrared Photography from BioMed Studios, with additional courses available for a fee. Kit prices range from $2600 to $5000.
