Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd.

Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. (president : Komori Shigetaka) developed the object for inside seal cameras epoch-making lately "the digital camera back." Although the "super CCD honey cam" which Fuji Photo Film developed has received already high evaluation as a key device which leads the high-definition time of a digital camera By adopting the large-sized type (37mmx52mm) of this "super CCD honey cam" this time While [ which is called 20,800,000 pixels of effective pixel numbers, and 5408x7648 (41,400,000 pixels) maximum record pixel ] overly having a highly minute depiction function, the object for seal cameras "the digital camera back" is developed.

it carried -- large-sized -- since it was processed by the "new parallel type honey cam signal processing system" (*1) newly developed, though it was mass data with the 5408x7648 (41,400,000 pixels) maximum record pixel, digital signal processing of a "super CCD honey cam" is a 1.5-second interval, and realized continuation photography of a maximum of 7 tops
(※1)  New technology which shortens signal processing speed sharply by making the "honey cam signal processing system" adopted with the FinePix digital camera of our company two or more parallel.  

Moreover, the digital image with the 5408x7648 (41,400,000 pixels) maximum record pixel overly realizes highly minute depiction, are the large dynamic range, smooth gradation, and faithful color reproducibility, and demonstrates power also to the difficult large size print creation of super-high definition in digital one conventionally.
The object for inside [ this ] seal cameras "the digital camera back" is best matching with the digital mini-laboratory "a frontier" of our company acknowledged at super-high definition, or a full color digital printer "PICT log RAFI", makes each performance multiply further, and is sure that it can fully answer also to a pro photographer's severe broad needs.

The digital camera back who developed this time is the design corresponding to our company GX680 only for 120 / 220 roll films which uses regularly broadly in a commercial market, a operating photo studio, etc. By using this digital camera back, the conventional camera function remains as it is, and you can use it as an inside seal camera of the hybrid type which can respond to photography a film and digital [ both ].

In addition, the digital camera back corresponding to the seal camera in 645 sizes of the single lens reflex camera type of our company which has received high evaluation since sale "GX645AF" is also going to develop from now on.



1.  The main features  

1)  37mmx52mm -- large-sized -- adoption of a "super CCD honey cam" -- the number of effective pixels -- 20,800,000 pixels and the 5408x7648 (41,400,000 pixels) maximum record pixel -- highly minute depiction is overly realized  
2)  With "new parallel type honey cam signal processing system" technology, though it is mass data, at intervals of 1.5 seconds, continuation photography of a maximum of 7 tops is realized, and it answers to the needs for a pro photographer's quick photography business.  
3)  A sensitivity setup of ISO 100,200 and 400 is possible for photography sensitivity. You can use for a use broad from studio photography to outdoor photography.  
4)  A liquid crystal LCD monitor carries 1.8 type low-temperature poly silicone TFT of 100% of rates of a view.
The photoed picture area can be reproduced 100% and power is demonstrated to the check of a photography picture.  
5)  A record format equips "CCD-RAW", "JPEG", and "TIFF", and can acquire the image data of rich gradation suitable for image processing.  
6)  A microdrive is used for record media and photography of mass data is possible for them.
