Three cheap digital cameras will be launched at CES 2007 next week by Fujifilm. This includes the 8 megapixel Fujifilm FinePix F40fd, 6 megapixel FinePix A610 and 8 megapixel FinePix A800.

Combining unequalled performance and ease of use, the Finepix F40fd is a compact, highly portable and stylish digital camera. It's packed with features that make it easy for new photographers to get great pictures, and experienced digital camera buffs will love the advanced photographic capabilities that result in exceptional performance. These include Face Detection Technologyby Fujifilm, a hardware based system using Fujifilm's proprietary dedicated LSI chip, which can detect up to 10 human faces in a scene in as little as 5/100's of a second, and Dual Shot Mode, a convenient function that takes two shots in rapid succession, one with flash and one without, letting the user decide on the best picture.

The FinePix A800 is the first model in Fujifilm's A-Series line-up to sport an eight-MegaPixel Super CCD Sensor and the first to incorporate light sensitivities of up to ISO 800 at full resolution. Borrowing a page from Fujifilm's more advanced camera models, the FinePix A800 shoots at higher light sensitivities with less noise than comparative models. This results higher quality 'natural light' photos and less blur in images as the FinePix A800 matches these higher light sensitivities with faster shutter speeds.

Fujifilm's A-Series digital cameras are among its most popular models and the 6-MegaPixel FinePix A610 should help continue this trend. This camera has the same comfortable design as the FinePix A800 and is priced right for the first-time digital buyer.

The FinePix F40fd will debut in March 2007 at a retail price of $299. The FinePix A610 and FinePix A800 will debut in March 2007 with retail prices of $129 and $179, respectively.
