Fujifilm Super CCD EXR

Fujifilm has recently introduced a new addition to the fabulous line of Super CCD photo sensors.

The Super CCD EXR has been introduced in two of the latest compact offerings by the company.
One is a new "bridge" camera that may replace my favorite s100fs and the second model an upgrade to my "pocket sized" f100fd.

“Fujifilm's new Super CCD EXR sensor has been designed to adjust its behaviour according to the condition in which it is being used so it can deliver the user the best quality for any situation. The sensor has three different shooting modes that can be either selected manually by the user or left to the camera to automatically choose which suits the occasion. In high resolution (HR) mode the sensor uses all its pixels to render the finest details of the scene, while a high sensitivity (SN) mode it uses pixel-coupling technology to produce images with low noise levels in very low light conditions. A further high dynamic range (DR) mode combines two exposures to deal with high contrast situations.”

If Fujifilm every decides to install this technology into a full framed DSLR, the competition may well have to be satisfied with no more than second place!
