The Debut of a New Technology - EXR CMOS

In pursuing for the ultimate image technology, Fujifilm has developed a unique collaboration, the EXR CMOS, optimizing the best of EXR and CMOS imagining technologies. See for yourself the dynamic resolution and its brilliant speed, opening a new door to another era in photography.

New Advances in RP (Real Photo) Technology

The new BSI (Back Side Illuminated) EXR CMOS sensor is a ground-breaking breakthrough in image quality. 16 megapixels is impressive and delivers a leap in resolution, but the real difference is in the technology.

3-way Capture Technology for the Best Image Quality in Every Scene
hs20exrEXR Pixel Array & Color Array - Only Fujifilm

The unique EXR pixel and color arrays are key to image quality. Rotated by 45 degrees, the EXR pixel array increases both horizontal and vertical resolution. By using the diagonally-aligned twin pixels of the same color, the sensor can switch between HR (High Resolution), DR (Wide Dynamic Range) and SN (High Sensitivity and Low Noise) modes depending on the scene, ensuring that every moment is captured with the highest image quality.

hs20exrHigh Resolution (16 Megapixels)

Just as your eyes see even the tiniest of details when looking at something in good light, HR (High Resolution) mode maximizes the full 16 megapixel resolution of the FinePix HS20EXR to reproduce even the smallest details in bright, beautiful color.

hs20exrWide Dynamic Range 1600%

Just as your eyes see the full range of shadows to highlights in high-contrast scenes, DR mode simultaneously captures two images to produce a single image with significantly enhanced dynamic range, revealing subtle details in shadow and eliminating washout of bright areas.

hs20exrHigh Sensitivity & Low Noise

Just as your eyes strive to make dark scenes as bright and detailed as possible, SN mode takes advantage of high-sensitivity to capture smooth texture and natural brightness with minimal noise.

hs20exrThe CMOS Edge

Adoption of a high-speed transfer circuit architecture enables fast data signal readout, which in turn makes the new high speed movie possible along with the high speed continuous shooting functions.

hs20exrBSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS

The BSI (Back Side Illuminated) sensor structure moves the wiring to the back side of the sensor, vastly improving sensitivity and reducing noise.

EXR Processor

Harnessing the high-speed performance of the BSI EXR CMOS sensor, the Dual CPU, EXR Core and Reconfigurable Processor power a host of functions including high-sensitivity HD movies and continuous shooting as well as expanded scene recognition and Pro Modes while the new Vector Graphics Accelerator drives the enhanced image quality of the rich GUI.


Fujinon Lens


Capturing your moments in exquisite distortion-free detail, the outstanding resolution of Fujinon lenses is the product of advanced lens design supported by original high precision lens engineering and processing technologies.

High-precision Molded Glass Aspheric Lens

By precisely focusing light at the same point on the focal plane, aspheric lens design eliminates the need for additional corrective lens elements. While this lens reduces distortion at wide angles, improves resolution in both center and edge areas, cuts glare and reflections, and minimizes chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range, the lens also makes possible a lighter and more compact design.

Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Glass Lens

Dramatically minimizing chromatic aberration which frequently occurs in conventional super telephoto lenses, the high-quality ED glass lens delivers superior sharpness and color fidelity.

EXR AUTO Recognizes 27 Scenes

Automatically optimizing everything from sensor to setting, EXR AUTO allows you to concentrate on framing and capturing the moment.

Advanced Scene Recognition

With the ability to identify 10 basic types of scene and then check whether or not a person is present and how much light is available, EXR AUTO is able to identify exactly what type of scene you are shooting and optimizes exposure, white balance, focus, color and tonality accordingly. What's more it records this data and lets you search through your photos by scene type (eg: night portrait, or Macro) enabling you to find the pictures you are after quickly and easily.



The uniqueness of an EXR sensor is its ability to adapt its settings to the demands of the shot. With three modes to choose from, it is unlike any other sensor on the market and is only available on Fujifilm cameras. EXR AUTO selects the optimum sensor mode automatically. With three modes to choose from: HR, SN and DR.
HR: High Resolution mode is perfect for well lit conditions and uses all 16 megapixels.
SN: High Sensitivity and Low Noise mode is designed for use at night or in dark conditions and it halves the number of pixels to create 8 mega super pixels which are extra sensitive to light.
DR: Dynamic Range mode is suited to high-contrast conditions where you have both bright sunlight and dark shadows present. It works by combining one high-exposure and one low-exposure shot to create an 8 megapixel image with detail in both the highlights and in the shadows.

Sunset x DR

  • Conventional Digital Camera
  • FinePix HS20EXR

Delivers the best results of the sunset as it intelligently recognizes the scene emphasizing the vividness of the colors and the depth of the scene with the EXR sensor mode automatically switched to Dynamic Range to capture the high contrast involved in the scene.

Sky & Greenery x HR

  • Conventional Digital Camera
  • FinePix HS20EXR

Automatically recognizes the vivid colors of the azure sky and the green grass as it is optimized even more with the EXR sensor mode of High Resolution for bright scene to capture every finest detail of the scene.
