12.34-million pixel Fujifilm Digital SLR

If you’re in the market for a high-resolution digital SLR camera, then Fujifilm reckons it might have the model for you.  The FinePix S5 Pro boasts an expanded dynamic range thanks to its use of a double pixel Super CCD SR Pro sensor that can recognise 6.17 million S-pixels and 6.17 million R-pixels to give an effective 12.34 million pixel count and 400% wider range than a single-pixel CCD.  Fujifilm have also thrown their RP Processor Pro into the mixture, giving a frankly boggling ISO equivalent sensitivity of 3200.

Post-capture Face Detection software on the camera can identify up to ten faces in a single shot and allow the photographer to zoom in directly onto each and make sure eyes were open, exposure properly set and everything in focus.  Weatherproof seals and a variety of film-simulation modes round out the deal.

The S5 Pro will be available in February 2007 across the US for a MRSP of $2,000.
