Valhalla , NY , August, 21 2006 - Tired of lugging cameras, memory cards and chargers on vacation? Have a rare moment to explore on a business trip, but are without your trusty digital? Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, the premier manager of ultra-luxury hotels and resorts throughout the world, has teamed up with Fujifilm, a world leader in digital imaging innovation, in an exclusive arrangement to offer guests the latest super slick digital cameras for complimentary use while staying at select properties. As a special vacation keepsake, the tech-savvy staff at Rosewood properties will download guests' pictures onto a Fujifilm CD that they can take home with them.
With Fujifilm's FinePix F30, taking flattering pictures has never been easier. Everyone knows that flash photography can lead to overexposed pictures with washed out subjects, so guests who've worked hard on their tan will love the FinePix F30. Its high light sensitivities reduce the need for flash, plus it has an intelligent flash system that results in more natural-looking photographs. Moreover, the FinePix F30 has Fujifilm's Picture Stabilization for less blurring in photos due to camera shake and subject movement.
Like plasma televisions and other flat-panel displays, the LCD of the FinePix F30 has a special coating that reduces glare. Thanks to this coating, the FinePix F30 is a pleasure to use in bright sunlight and perfect for the following Rosewood resorts:
· Caneel Bay, A Rosewood Resort, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
· Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort, Antigua, West Indies
· Little Dix Bay, A Rosewood Resort, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands
· King Pacific Lodge, A Rosewood Resort, Princess Royal Island, B.C., Canada
· Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort, Los Cabos, Mexico
· Acqualina, A Rosewood Resort, Sunny Isles Beach, Florida
The FinePix V10 digital camera from Fujifilm slides easily into pocket or even the smallest handbag. Its diminutive dimensions make it an ideal take-along for sightseeing, shopping and nighttime excursions. Like the FinePix F30, the FinePix V10 features Fujifilm's Picture Stabilization, along with a special mode that fires successive pictures - one with the flash and one without - saving both for later review. Its most striking physical feature is an extra-large, 3.0" LCD monitor, which is great for framing subjects, reviewing an album's worth of
photos or playing the camera's four on-board video games.
The high-performance FinePix V10 digital camera from Fujifilm will be available at:
· The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, New York City
· CordeValle, A Rosewood Resort, San Martin, California
· Inn of the Anasazi, A Rosewood Hotel, Santa Fe, New Mexico
· San Ysidro Ranch, A Rosewood Resort, Santa Barbara, California
Rosewood's concierges will provide Fujifilm digital cameras to guests along with photo tips for the best results. Whether photographing children frolicking on a beach, a romantic moment over dinner, or a stunning view, guests at Rosewood's properties are just a click away from capturing a picture perfect vacation!
