(Saturday, October 8, 2005 - 14:38 EDT)

A press release today from Fuji Photo Film U.S.A. Inc. has announced an adjustment in pricing for its FinePix S3 Pro digital SLR, a model we recently reviewed and called "unquestionably without equal anywhere in the digital camera market ... [when] it comes to preserving difficult highlights without disturbing the tonality or color rendition of the rest of the image".

First announced on February 5th 2004, the camera began shipping at the end of the year with a minimum advertised price (MAP) of US$2499. The S3 Pro features a SuperCCD SR II image sensor that delivers an image resolution of 6.17 megapixels (effective) with an extended dynamic range, coupled with a Nikon F mount.

Today's announcement sees the price drop by 20% ($500) to $1999. An added purchase incentive between October 1st 2005 and November 30th 2005 is the bundling of RealViz's Stitcher 4.0 panorama stitching software, as well as an extra FinePix S3 Pro battery tray, battery charger and a flexible, white balance card. Fujifilm is listing the value of these items together as $400.

At the same time, Fujifilm has also announced that its corporate website now offers RSS feeds, for those wishing to stay up to date on the latest announcements and promotions from the company.
