Fujifilm FinePix Z30 - Upload photos
With the addition of Couple and Group Timers Modes, as well as Dual Blog Mode for easy upload of photos and movie clips to social networking sites, the Fujifilm Z30 really is the essential party camera. All this fun technology is packed in to a very fashionable and compact shell that will demand attention where ever it goes.
Fujifilm Z30 a stylish digital compact camera
Having evolved from Fujifilm’s best selling FinePix Z20fd, the FinePix Z30 debuts with a brand new and original look. The stylish exterior with its smooth sculpted curves and tiny size means it will fit in to a pocket or bag, all ready for a night out. The cool, two tone colour scheme, featuring a metallic sliding lens cover with diamond studded-effect detail set against a matte body, will guarantee to make an impression with your friends. The only decision is what colour you desire - Fuchsia Pink, Deep Purple, Jet Black, Pure White or Tangy Orange.
Fujifilm Z30 - Scene Recognition AUTO
Most compact digital cameras feature scene modes where the user selects the scene they are photographing before they take the shot. The Fujifilm FinePix Z30 is equipped with Scene Recognition AUTO (SR AUTO) technology which cleverly detects a scene without the need to pre-select the mode on the camera. Having identified the most commonly photographed subjects, Fujifilm has developed technology to automatically identify and recognise different scenes - Portrait, Night, Landscape, Macro, Night Portrait and Backlight Portrait. Once the scene has been detected, the Fuji Z30 camera will optimise the settings to capture the most stunning photo of your chosen subject.
Fujifilm FinePix Z30 self-timer modes
The Fujifilm Z30 features two self-timer modes: Couple Timer and Group Timer. Working in combination with Face Detection technology, the self-timer automatically sets off after the camera has detected faces in a frame. The Fujifilm FinePix Z30 won’t take the photo if one of the faces is out the frame, so there’s no need to worry about someone being missed out of the shot!
• The Couple Timer mode cleverly detects two faces in a frame and will automatically release the shutter button as the two faces come closer together and can be set a various distances, whether they are standing side by side, or cheek-to-cheek.
• Group shots have never been so easy. The Fuji FinePix Z30 Group Timer mode can detect up to four faces in a frame and automatically sets the timer to take the shot and will only fire when all faces are fully in the frame, so there’s no danger of anyone being chopped out!
Share photos with the Fujifilm FinePix Z30
There’s no fun in taking pictures if you can’t share them or edit them to make sure that you and your friends are looking at your best. For users wanting to share their creative output with a wider audience, the Fujifilm FinePix Z30 new Dual Blog mode automatically resizes any still image or movie you've captured, letting you post pictures and videos to blogs, video-sharing or e-mail to friends with ease. 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. In addition, users can find and select their favourite shot using Microthumbnail View, which displays up to 100 thumb images on the 2.7” LCD screen.
