Fujifilm Announces the FinePix S5 Pro

Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro

Fujifilm has unveiled its FinePix S5 Pro, their next offering of a DSLR following the FinePix S3 Pro which became popular with portrait and wedding photographers.

The S5 Pro has the same SuperCCD SR design sensor (although now called ‘SR Pro’). Its double pixel technology features 6.17 million ‘S photodiodes’ (normal DR) and 6.17 million ‘R photodiodes’ (highlight DR) for a total photodiode count of 12.34 million. This technology is said to result in more detail in highlights and shadows. But each couplet of ‘S’ and ‘R’ photodiodes share a single microlens, and hence are unable to separately contribute to resolution in an image, so the S5 Pro has a 6.17 effective megapixel resolution.

The S5 Pro features a new metal alloy body frame which looks very much like the Nikon D200. Interestingly, Fuji’s S1 Pro was based on a Nikon N60 consumer film SLR, while the follow-up S2 Pro and S3 Pro models were based on the Nikon N80.

The S5 Pro is still actually in development, Fujifilm said, and it will be available in early 2007.
