TAUNTON, Mass.--Kopin® Corporation, the leading provider of microdisplays for mobile consumer electronics, announced today that Fujifilm Corporation, a global leader in the digital camera industry, continued its adoption of Kopin electronic viewfinders (EVFs) by incorporating Kopin’s CyberEVF® 230K into its new FinePix S8000fd SLR-styled camera with 18x optical zoom. It is the second Fujifilm model to use a Kopin EVF module.
“We are delighted about our expanded relationship with Fujifilm,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin president and CEO. “Our CyberEVF 230K delivers high-quality images in a tiny package, helping users of Fujifilm’s latest FinePix S8000fd model take superb high-definition pictures. The market demand for SLR-style cameras, which have an attached high-zoom lens, is increasing rapidly because they combine advanced features for excellent-quality pictures, ease of use, and an affordable price. By providing exceptional quality and value to the SLR-style cameras, our compact EVF modules are becoming the EVF of choice among the world’s leading high-zoom digital camera makers.”
The Kopin CyberEVF 230K delivers brilliant, natural-colored images in virtually any light conditions. For consumers, it ensures that the image seen through the EVF precisely matches the photograph – at any zoom level. For digital camera manufacturers, Kopin’s complete EVF solution provides reduced time to market.
The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd with 8 megapixels brings wide-angle, long-zoom technology to the consumer market. It features the Company’s latest Dual Image Stabilization for blur-free image, Face Detection technology for superb portrait picture taking, automatic red eye removal, and ISO settings of up to ISO6400 (at 50% resolution) – features normally found only in a high-end SLR digital camera. The FinePix S8000fd is available at a retail price of $399.95.
In June 2007, Kopin announced that Fujifilm had selected the CyberEVF 230K-NF for its new 7-megapixel S700 digital camera.
