Fujifilm Helps Fight Crime with New FinePix S3 Pro UVIR Digital SLR


Fujifilm broke new ground again today with the introduction of the FinePix S3 Pro UVIR camera.

The FinePix S3 Pro UVIR is the world's first production D-SLR camera capable of taking photographs in the ultraviolet and infrared light spectrums. It has been designed for use in the science, medical and fine art disciplines, with its most intriguing applications coming in the field of law enforcement investigation.

Law enforcement agencies have used ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) photography for years to uncover evidence not easily seen by the human eye, such as gun shot residue and blood stains, as well as to recover altered, burned or obliterated writing. IR photography is also used in nighttime surveillance.

With its digital capabilities, the FinePix S3 Pro UVIR makes the evidence-gathering process more efficient and accurate for investigators. The FinePix S3 Pro UVIR has a live CCD previewing feature, a significant aid to the forensic photographer. This feature enables manual focusing while dark filters are attached to the lens as well as pre-capture verification.

Moreover, FinePix S3 Pro UVIR carries the same photographic technologies that have made the standard FinePix S3 Pro such a respected camera. These include Fujifilm's unique, double photodiode (6.17 million S-pixels and 6.17 million R-pixels) Super CCD SR II image sensor for a dynamic range 400% greater than cameras of single-pixel design. This wider dynamic range contributes to the capture of finer detail, a paramount factor in the gathering of key evidence. Another performance benefit of the Super CCD SR II sensor is its high signal-to-noise ratio.

"Initially, the technology designed for the FinePix S3 Pro UVIR was for traditional visible wavelength imagery. But upon testing we found that the natural low noise tendencies of the Super CCD SR II sensor produced an outstanding image within UV and IR light bands," explained Darin Pepple, Marketing Manager, Electronic Imaging Division, Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc. "Fujifilm conducted a series of tests and after seeing the results, we knew instantly the immense power this camera would bring to forensic investigation.

"Fujifilm U.S.A. is thrilled to provide the brightest minds in law enforcement with technology useful in solving the country's most complex crimes."

Along with the FinePix S3 Pro UVIR, Fujifilm will bundle its HyperUtility Processing Software. This program provides investigators with side-by-side image comparisons along with metadata analysis, a useful tool when examining images of blood stains, documents or other forms of evidence.

"Fujifilm's new FinePix S3 Pro UVIR camera is a helpful tool in forensic investigation. Not only does it produce outstanding images, but the digital medium allows for immediate verification of a captured image. This immediacy makes evidence preservation easier and data cataloging more efficient," remarked Michael Brooks, owner of Brooks Photographic Imaging, a law enforcement photography consultancy.

Priced at $1,799.95, Fujifilm's FinePix S3 Pro UVIR is available at select authorized dealers in the United States beginning September 2006.
