Fuji Photo Film USA is now offering the S3 Pro buffer upgrade that was previously announced in Europe, and which we recently noted in this story.
We can't link directly to the upgrade information, but the "New Buffer Upgrade" headline on this page leads to a description of the upgrade and a downloadable PDF order form. The upgrade raises the S3 Pro camera's continuous shooting buffer depth as follows:
Wide dynamic range mode
- RAW: 8 images (from 3, pre-upgrade)
- JPEG: 16 images (from 6, pre-upgrade)
Standard dynamic range mode
- RAW: 17 images (from 7, pre-upgrade)
- JPEG: 33 images (from 12, pre-upgrade)
It costs US$379.95 ($349.95 if you let Fuji keep your old memory chip), and it's performed at the Fujifilm Camera Repair center in Edison, New Jersey.
