Fujifilm's IS and UVIR series of cameras have set standards for quality straight from the factory that are currently unmatched by third party camera modifications.
The Fujifilm IS Pro is the next generation of UVIR compatible DSLR and is built on the same platform as the FinePix S5 Pro digital SLR system. And like the S5 Pro is compatible with Nikon F mount lenses and Nikon iTTL flash systems.
Investigative photographers often require images produced in TIFF directly from the camera. Since most DSLR cameras today now only offer RAW as an option, the IS Pro offers an optional firmware upgrade due out later this Autumn that will support camera TIFF file formats in three resolutions. ( RAW mode is not available during TIFF mode capture.)
The IS Pro is available through Fujifilm's exclusive list of Law Enforcement and Scientific dealers and is available in various system kits that may include online training workshops, HyperUtility HS-V3 software, lenses, camera body armor, extra long USB cables, specialized UV and IR filters.
