Fujifilm announces S3 Pro UVIR DSLR for nighttime fun
The S3 Pro DSLR from Fujifilm was always good for color gamut, but the new UVIR version takes it to a whole new level. Using special lens filters, the camera can capture Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red pics at its fine 12.3 megapixel resolution, perfect for forensic use, or just some fun in the dark. The system takes advantage of the S3 Pro's 30 second B&W live CCD preview mode, allowing you to tune the camera to the specific wavelength of light, since the viewfinder doesn't work with the UV or IR spectrum filters on. Focusing and exposure are all done manually due to the wide range of light spectrum you'll be dealing with, so you're not going to get much casual point-and-shoot use out of the unit, but with a $1,799 pricetag you probably already had that figured out. Should be out in September.
