movies on their PC, but with the optional HD Player accessory kit, with
wireless remote control (HDMI cable not included), families can gather
around their home HDTV to enjoy amazingly detailed stills and high
resolution movie playback.
Advanced Image Stabilization
The XP170 has a
powerful CMOS-shift Image Stabilization (CIS) system. CIS works as the
photo is being taken as it combines a mechanically stabilized sensor
with high ISO to combat camera/hand shake and subject movement for
improved low light shooting. The result is an expanded range of shooting
situations where the camera can be used without the need of a tripod or
other support. With CIS working in the background, you can capture
sharp, colorful scenes and portraits underwater or at night.
Tracking Auto Focus (AF)
to capture an action shot, the AF function tracks fast moving subjects
so they don’t escape from the frame in a blur. Subjects will be tracked
automatically for as long as it is kept in the frame and the shutter is
half-pressed. When users fully press the shutter button, the subject
will be in the center of the photo in perfect focus.
In addition to these innovations, the XP170 is also loaded with the following features:
- 360° Motion Panorama Mode: Automatically creates a stunning panoramic (horizontal or vertical) picture.
- Scene Recognition Auto (SR AUTO): This mode intelligently identifies the scene type and necessary shooting conditions to optimize picture perfect potential.
- Face Detection and Automatic Red-eye Removal:To
provide perfectly exposed and focused portrait shots, the XP170 uses
Fujifilm’s latest Face Detection technology which is able to track up to
6 faces simultaneously. The system instantly corrects red-eye and then
saves both the original and the corrected image file automatically.
- Li-ion Rechargeable Battery: The
XP170 has an extended-life rechargeable Li-ion battery with charger for
up to 300 shots per charge that allows users to shoot all of their
images without worrying if the camera is going to last for the duration
of their trip.
The FinePix XP170 will be available in June 2012 for $279.95 in blue and orange.
accessory kit for the new XP170 containing an adjustable float strap,
protective silicone skin and a neoprene sports case will also be
available at launch.
