Fuji S3 ProDigital Camera Info have reviewed 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.”

“In the film era, shooting infrared was just a matter of buying the right film. If you wanted to be serious about it, you would also need a special-use filter. Digital photography changed that. Photographers who wanted to shoot infrared digitally could hack their cameras (or pay a pro to do it) by removing the UV and IR cutoff filter, or count on incredibly low sensitization. That was until the introduction of the Fujifilm FinePix S3 UVIR, released last year. Essentially, it’s a prehacked version of the S3. Fujifilm removed the cutoff filter and replaced it with clear glass. The result is a camera that is sensitive to ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light.”
