Fujifilm's S1 Pro is a digital SLR camera based on a Nikon 35mm body.

As an SLR, it benefits from the availability of Nikon's extensive lens range, but you need to stick to the D series lenses to get the full features of the camera. The CCD is smaller than a 35mm frame and you need to multiply the focal length of the 35mm lenses by 50 per cent to get the equivalent with this digital camera.

Battery power for the S1 Pro is supplied by two sets of batteries, with Lithium cells driving the camera systems (metering and focusing) and four AA batteries handling the digital side (colour LCD, writing to memory).

Unusually, the FinePix S1 Pro supports both Smart Media and CompactFlash, and you can have both in the camera at the same time and select between them. It's supplied with a 16MB Smart Media card as standard and also supports Type II CF cards, such as IBM's Microdrive.

In addition to the menus, which are accessed via the colour LCD, most operational settings are adjusted via another orange LCD and four function buttons.

A direct comparison with the resolution of other digital cameras is awkward because the FinePix S1 Pro uses Fujifilm's new hexagonal SuperCCD which, while having an actual pixel count of 3.4 Megapixels, uses the octagonal design of the CCD to bring the vertical and horizontal borders closer together than conventional designs, resulting in an effective 6 Megapixel (3,040 by 2,016) image.

File sizes of captured images vary from 400KB up to 18MB for an uncompressed TIFF.

In addition to the digital features, the FinePix S1 Pro has 3D multi-pattern or centre-weighted metering, programmed exposure modes as well as shutter speed and aperture priority, exposure and flash compensation.

The FinePix S1 Pro offers ease of use, superb versatility, some innovative features and excellent image quality.
