Confirming Fujifilm's commitment to professional photographers, the FinePix S5 Pro carries a number of features that appeal to wedding, portrait and studio photographers. One is an expanded dynamic range from the double pixel technology (6.17 million S-pixels and 6.17 million R-pixels) of the camera's Super CCD SR Pro sensor that is approximately 400% wider than that of a CCD working on a single-pixel design. In addition, the FinePix S5 Pro goes a step further by coupling the new Super CCD SR Pro sensor with Fujifilm's new RP Processor Pro for smoother tonality from brightest light to the darkest shadows. An ISO equivalent sensitivity of 3200 is also available on the FinePix S5 Pro, thanks to the RP Processor Pro technology.
Additionally, the camera features Fujifilm's Face Detection Technology. A post-capture function on the FinePix S5 Pro, the technology detects up to ten faces in a scene at the push of a button. Using the camera's LCD monitor, FinePix S5 Pro users can zoom in to the faces of subjects, confirming focus, exposure and whether eyes are open or closed.
Additional highlighted features of the FinePix S5 Pro include: excellent ergonomics with weatherproof seals, a robust shutter mechanism tested to exceed 100,000 cycles, and advancements to the Film Simulation Mode with the addition of three new settings for varying skin tones.
