Posted on Saturday, Jan 26 2008 @ 23:20 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Fujifilm released a new 12 megapixel digital camera - the FinePix F100fd. This digicam features 5x optical zoom (28 - 140mm equivalent) and a 2.7" LCD display. Other features include face detection 3.0, dual image stabilization, ISO12800 and wide dynamic range.

  • Dual Image Stabilization: Combines mechanical image stabilization with the effects produced with higher ISO.
  • Continuous Shooting: Top/Final 3 at 1.7 frames per second at full resolution and Top/Final 12 at 5 frames per second at 3-MegaPixels.
  • High Speed Playback: No waiting for high resolution images to load during play back. The FinePix F100fd can display images at full resolution at 10 frames per second.
  • Portrait Enhancer Mode: Mimicking a professional photo studio setting, by using Face Detection and preset camera settings, Portrait Enhancer minimizes fine lines and small skin blemishes for smooth, natural looking portraits.
  • Dual Shot Mode: In this selectable mode, the FinePix F100fd quickly shoots two images in rapid succession - one with the flash and one without - and saves both. This convenient function lets users perform a comparison at their convenience and select the most pleasing image.
  • Special Scene: The FinePix F100fd has 16 pre-programmed scenes, including a special underwater scene mode for use with a special underwater casing. Also, a Blog mode that automatically reduces the size of copied images for easy posting to a blog, Web page or email attachment.
  • Micro Thumbnail: A playback feature that allows for viewing an index-style print on the LCD.  The FinePix F100fd will show up to 100 images in micro form, then the control buttons are used to select specific images. An innovative wheel navigation dial makes it easy to quickly find a single image by being able to jump to particular segments of images in the time sequence.  
  • IrSimpleā„¢: Infrared communication via IrSimpleā„¢ technology for fast, easy wireless image transfer to a compatible device.
  • xD / SD / SD-HC Compatible slot: The FinePix F100fd features a "xD/SD Compatible slot" which accepts not only Fujifilm's traditional xD-Picture Cards but also Secure Digital (SD) and SD-High Capacity/SD-HC cards too.
  • It will be available in March for $379.
