Default Fuji Finepix S4 Pro

We now know its coming. We also know when its coming, sort of. Thre are confirmed rumors that it will be fast. What we dont know is everything else. So if you are able to cofirm any data about the S4 and its not the sensor, please dont tell me.

http://forum.digitalkamera.de/dcboar...30&page=#25137

translation:

The Fuji S4 was introduced briefly before a few days on the television. More self-willed, more roundish Design, with some Automatiken, e.g. a Portraitmodus, to which fully automatic "function" is - what miracle...... the S4 will come. Technical data were not called otherwise, were stop only one short report. (30 seconds for Fuji) Franc

Portraitmodus - portrait mode

another post

I spoke to a friend of mine today...this friend is a VERY well-known children's portrait artist who also happens to be sponsored by Fuji. She said that there will be an S4 announced at Photokina and it will have a bigger/faster buffer. I had to cut our conversation short so I didn't get to ask her about the body or other "stuff". Help's on the way!

so there you go. time for kevin to get a new fuji and some monster fast glass.

To me the biggie question is the price. I am afraid Fuji is going to be doing the same mistake they did with the S3 - or maybe they are forced to considering they have to buy bodies from Nikon.

If they come out at the $3k USD bracket again, *it better* have something spectacular as far as the usual photography functionality goes in that price range, like resolution and speed.

Maybe something truly odd, like configurable sensors, that allow the "R" pixels to act as "S" pixels in a special mode, enabling more resolution? That would rock, but I guess would be hard to do.

while i am ready to beleive or wonder is up for grabs. there is enough real data outther for truly high hopes. but it really is up to fuji.

does fuji have the guts to make the camera they are capable of

does fuji go middle of the road

does fuji go most bang for the buck

does fuji go cheap

does fuji multi camera line up

one of these is right, we will find out at photokina

its actually going to be called the S5. one of the reasons the S3 production was stopped is the donor body is out of production at nikon.

current rumor is the new camera has been in production and will be in stores by mid december.
