Fujifilm FinePix Z900 EXR takes multi-touch tips from the iPhone

The Fujifilm FinePix Z900 EXR has taken some design tips from Apple -- and it does at least one thing the iPhone can't do.

The Fujifilm FinePix Z900 EXR takes some tips from the Apple iPhone -- not only is it sleekly stylish, it boasts a single button and multi-touch controls. And it does at least one thing the iPhone can't do...

The Z900 is a sliding snapper sporting a giant 3.5-inch touchscreen with 460,000-pixel resolution. The screen adds iPhone-style multi-touch controls, so you can pinch with two fingers to zoom in and out of photos, or swipe through photos with your fingertip. Next to the screen is a single home button, just like an iPhone.

And yes, the Z900 has a trick up its sleeve the iPhone can't match: Flash. The menus are Flash animations, which are based on vectors so the interface will look just as crisp on a giant high-definition TV as on the camera's screen. HDMI output makes the connection between snapper and telly.

The Z900 is the latest to boast a triple-layer EXR sensor. The 16 megapixels are arranged in a unique way that's designed to perform differently in different situations, making the most of the available light to add more detail or pick out more. It's also a rear-illuminated CMOS sensor, which will help it in low light.

Fuji offers a range of cameras packing EXR sensor, from pocketable FinePix F80EXR to the large superzoom FinePix S200EXR. The Z900 replaces the FinePix Z800EXR, boosting the sensor from the latter's 12 megapixels to 16.

It shoots up to 3 frames per second at full resolution, or up to 320fps for low-resolution slow-motion video. Video is 1080p at 30 frames per second with stereo sound. Despite its slender 18mm depth, the Z900 packs a 5x optical zoom.

The Z900 EXR comes in blue, black, pink or red. It arrives in May and will cost around £220.
