Fujifilm IS-1 Infrared Camera

Fujifilm IS-1 Infrared Camera

The Fujifilm IS-1 is the latest digital camera capable of capturing images in the infrared light spectrum. It follows its older sibling, the FinePix S3 Pro UVIR DSLR into the mysterious field of infrared photography, mostly CSI-type crime capers.

Unlike the S3 Pro, the IS-1 infrared digicam is not a DSLR; it sports an electronic viewfinder with several distinct advantages.

The IS-1 has a continuous live preview feature, an advantage during infrared photography for focusing and composing when using dark lens filters. Its articulating LCD simplifies the processes of previewing, capturing and reviewing photos – especially when the camera is in a laboratory environment. Its 10.7x, 28-300mm optical zoom system is built-in, minimizing dust, making operation a snap for forensic photographers.

The new camera from Fujifilm features 9 megapixels; it can shoot VGA movies at 30fps and has ISO 80-1600 light sensitivity in the visible light spectrum. With an infrared cut filter, it can shoot photos the usual way.

The highly specialized but flexible FinePix IS-1 has a price tag of $899 and will be available in February 2007.
