Fuji S3 ProFujifilm have announced the new Fujifilm S3 Pro UVIR – a special edition version of their 12.3 megapixel Fujifilm S3 Pro – it features the ability to take Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red photos (as well as visible light photos) and has a 30 second live CCD preview. The camera will be used for forensic investigation such as “the recovery of forensic evidence unseen by human eyes, such as bloodstains or gunshot residue, as well as damaged or obliterated writing.” and will be available in September:

“Although not initially intended for use in general photography, the FinePix S3 Pro UVIR could be used by photo artists for special effects infrared imagery. Due to the wide range of light spectrums captured, focusing and exposure are done manually. Unique to the FinePix S3 Pro system is the 30 second B&W live CCD preview mode from the cameras LCD monitor. This unique mode can be used to focus the camera specifically to the wavelength being captured when dark UV or IR spectrum filters cover the lens, which renders the cameras optical viewfinder unusable.”
