(※1)  Original CCD of Fuji Photo Film which was made to rotate photo-diode arrangement 45 degrees from the method lattice arrangement of positive of type CCD conventionally, made form of a photo-diode eight square shapes with a large 受光 area, and raised resolution, sensitivity, a dynamic range, S/N, color reproducibility, etc. with sufficient balance.  


"FUJIFILM digital camera back DBP for GX680" It becomes only for the seal single-lens reflex cameras in a motor drive of Fuji Photo Film as for which pro photographers including は, a commercial market, or a operating photograph market use regularly broadly "GX680 series." Our company has furthered development of the digital camera back that it should answer to the demand to the high efficiency of "GX680 series", and the digital photography system which harnessed high definition.
By using "FUJIFILM digital camera back DBP for GX680" which I put on the market this time, as for high efficiency and high definition, "GX680 series" remains as it is, and can use them as a hybrid camera which can respond to photography a film and digital [ both ].

"FUJIFILM digital camera back DBP for GX680" realized overwhelming highly minute depiction which Fuji Photo Film newly developed and which large-sized size (about 52mmx 37mm) "a super CCD honey cam" is overly carried, and is called 20,680,000 pixels of effective pixel numbers, and the 7648x5408 (41,360,000 pixels) maximum record pixel. Moreover, the construction of the digital workflow which demonstrated that there is nothing and was consistent from the input to the output which is proud of an extensive dynamic range, smooth gradation, and faithful color reproducibility, especially does not go the ability in the output by the digital mini-laboratory "frontier" super-high-definition full color digital printer "PICT log RAFI" is attained. [ of our company ] Moreover, by digital signal processing developed original with our company, though it is mass data with the 7648x5408 (41,360,000 pixels) maximum record pixel, continuation photography of a maximum of 7 tops is realized with photography interval about 1.5 seconds /, and top, and few moments for a good picture are not missed, either.

It is sure that "FUJIFILM digital camera back DBP for GX680" can be enough answered to a pro photographer's severe broad digital needs.
