Fuji Photo Film Europe has announced a 256MB buffer memory upgrade for the Finepix S3 Pro. The upgrade raises the 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)
The cost of the upgrade is 390 euro, and it's performed at Fuji Photo Film's Camera Service Center in Dusseldorf, Germany.
We were unable to find any official word from Fujifilm in any other region (including the U.S. and Japan) on a similar program. But we have made inquiries with Fujifilm USA and will post an update when we get an answer.
