Introducing the camera for the image conscious professional - The Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro DSLR!

For the first time, a professional DSLR body featuring the Fujifilm Super CCD SR Pro coupled with Real Photo Processor Pro technology providing increased performance, control and durability.

The increased dynamic range from the Super CCD SR double pixel technology (6.17 million S-pixels and 6.17 million R-pixels) became popular in the FinePix S3 Pro with portrait and wedding photographers. The new FinePix S5 Pro continues these advancements by coupling the proven Super CCD SR Pro with the companies new RP (Real Photo) Processor Pro for even more outstanding film-like results. The two technologies will be married together in a fully digital and durable metal alloy body frame. This opens the door for Fujifilms technologies to expand into other venues such as outdoor and high endurance commercial photography.
