Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd
PMA 2010 Report
Fujifilm unveiled the FinePix Z20fd, a stylish new ultra-compact digital camera packed with useful features that let you shoot it, beam it, blog it and now roll it with a new MPEG-4 movie recording mode for the movie-crazed Generation Z. The 10 Megapixel Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd comes in five striking colours – Black, Green, Pink, Blue and Red - features an ultra-slim design, a Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens, 2.5" LCD screen, and is packed with innovative new features- creating and sharing videos and images has never been so easy. The Fujifilm Z20fd makes perfect portraits simple with Fujifilm's Face Detection Technology. A generous 45MB of internal memory gives you some extra room when your memory card is full.
Fuji FinePix Z20fd camera - Face Detection
The Fujifilm Z20fd offers Face Detection Technology, designed to optimise focus, white balance and exposure for up to 10 faces in a single frame. A green square surrounds the face of the primary subject on the camera's LCD screen, whilst white squares identify up to nine other subjects. Movement tracking keeps the camera 'locked on' to its subjects until they move out of the picture. The technology works irrespective of the subject's position in the frame, and is not confused by spectacles.
Fujifilm FinePix Z20 fd - Red Eye removal
After the shot is taken, each detected face is instantly checked for red-eye; if found, it is corrected automatically, saving the time consuming process of fixing it later. Fujifilm’s IrSimple technology allows for fast, easy wireless image transfer to any IrSimple equipped device.
Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd - IrSimple technology
There’s no fun in taking pictures if you can’t share them, and the Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd makes it easier than ever with fast, easy wireless transfer of images between cameras using IrSimple. For users wanting to share their creative output with a wider audience, the Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd’s new Dual Blog mode automatically resizes any still image or movie you've captured, letting you post pictures and videos to blogs, video-sharing websites like YouTube, or e-mail to friends with ease. The Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd’s impressive new full motion MPEG-4 video mode makes capturing and sharing internet-friendly video clips easier than ever. Using the Successive Movie mode, in-camera editing allows for the creation of a 60 second movie clip, even when shooting in two or more scenes is desired. Start and restart multiple times to build a 60-second compilation, and edit the start and end points.
Fujifilm Z20fd - Picture Stabilisation Technology
Fujifilm’s Picture Stabilisation Technology uses higher sensitivities and faster shutter speeds to reduce image blur caused by camera shake or low-light conditions, ensuring users get the picture they want.
