Fujifilm has announced the FinePix S2000HD, a compact and lightweight 10 megapixel digital camera with an long 15x optical zoom lens and HD movie recording and output. The FinePix S2000HD is the first Fujifilm model to offer full compatibility with high definition television (HDTV) systems for both stills and movies.

As well as capturing true HD movies (at 1280-x-720 pixels) and wide screen stills (at 1920-x-1080 pixels), the FinePix S2000HD's HD output allows the camera to display ultra clear high definition photographs and movies on HDTV. The FinePix S2000HD comes with remote control and cable.

Despite its compact size the FinePix S2000HD boasts a 15x optical zoom covering an incredibly versatile 27.6-414mm (equivalent to a 35mm camera) range from true wide-angle to ultra telephoto. The FinePix S2000HD's Dual Image Stabilisation mode combines a mechanically stabilized CCD sensor with high ISO sensitivities for anti-blur protection.

To make capturing the your shots even easier the FinePix S2000HD boasts the ability to shoot continuously at up to 13.5 frames per second with max 33frames (in 3mp mode). Other new features include Face Detection, Instant Zoom, and Zoom Bracketing.

Fujifilm says that the FinePix S2000HD will be available from September and that pricing will be announced nearer to the date of the launch.
