Fuji S2 pro

the Fuji S2 pro is, a digital mirror reflex camera manufactured by Fuji from the year 2002. It is the successor in the year 2000 of the Fuji S1 pro appeared. Since Fuji did not build own mirror reflex cameras at the time of the appearance, the S2 “was built” exactly like the S1 around a Nikon F-80 Body.


the S2 pro resembles outwardly the F-80 von Nikon. Only real change is the current supply of the camera, it contrary to many other DSLRs (digital mirror reflex camera) by commercial Mignon Akkus is operated.

Since these were efficient for the point of feature of the S2 however not yet enough, the S2 plans an additional CR2 battery, which is used mainly for the drive of the autofocus. In the emergency operation the S2 can be operated in addition, without the CR2 battery. With the meanwhile available strong Mignon Akkus beyond the 2200er mark can be operated the camera without restriction only with the Mignon Akkus; this has an enormous reduction of costs of the enterprise as consequence. The S2 possesses the Nikon f bayonet as type of connection, whereby a multiplicity of objectives of the companies Nikon, sigma and Tokina can be attached.

technical specifications

heart of the S2 is 6 megapixel a super CCD sensor of Fuji. By interpolating the special honeycomb structure of the sensor the camera can spend 12 megapixels large pictures, which is to correspond “genuine” 10 megapixels. Otherwise the S2 offers all usual functions of a DSLR: Program function, screen mechanism, automatic timer as well as a manual mode. On additional programs such as z. B. “Sport admission”, “Nachtportrait” etc. one did without, the program mode of the S2 serves primarily to provide sharp pictures without artistic aspect i.e. electronics of the camera stops exposure time and screen, in order to produce a balanced bright and sharp picture.

To that extent the S2 is not suitable for a riser those for the first time a camera in the hand holds. Something experience or learning patience should be bring along. But the S2 recompences its owner in addition, with outstanding results in the color representation, which are reached by otherwise nearly no digital camera.

As measuring system the S2 offers the usual Spot, center stressing and matrix measurement. In connection with a good TTL flash appartus (e.g. Nikon Sb-80DX) are obtained very good results. The inserted flash appartus with code number 12 is able to convince against it not quite and lowers the Akkulaufzeit drastically. Also the autofocus holds, which can be expected in this Preissegmet. Attitude possibilities are “exposure on the next object” as well as “object in the center of the Suchers” as well as memory function for the AF.

The S2 is not meanwhile any longer built and than new commodity sold, isolated can be found used copies with Ebay. Successor is the S3Pro, which possesses genuine 12 Mpixel now a chip as well as offers some improvements like an inserted portrait format trip. Additionally the S3Pro is only operated with Mignon batteries.
