Notes & Features: Closely related to the existing FinePix S3 Pro, but with the IR and UV cut filters removed and menus rearranged to make the camera more suitable for specialised UV and IR photography (as used in police work, etc.) Manual focus is recommended for IR photography, Fujifilm spec sheets note that both autofocus and autoexposure may not perform well, and that while ISO below 200 is possible, it isn't recommended.
