Category: Point-and-Shoot

[Availability of colours vary depending on country.]

Movie recording is 640 x 480 pixels @ 30 fps with monaural sound. The Fujifilm Z20fd has Auto mode, Program AE mode plus 14 scene modes. It accepts xD-Picture Card as well as Secure Digital (SD/SDHC) memory cards.

Picture Stabilization technology favours a high ISO so a fast enough shutter speed can be used to reduce or eliminate blur due to camera shake and subject motion.

Micro Thumbnail ViewFace Detection and Automatic Red-Eye Removal makes portraits and group photos fun. During playback of group portraits, you can “Zoom Up” on detected faces and check them one by one. If you find a priceless expression, Face Detection and high resolution are ready to automatically “Crop” and save a “portrait” of the detected face in camera. Micro Thumbnail View allows you to navigate up to 100 thumbnails in a 10x10 array during Playback.

A new IrSimple™ technology allows for fast wireless image transfer to other IrSimple™ compatible products (including another IrSimple™ digital camera). Blog Mode copies and automatically resizes any image captured to a properly sized 640x480 (VGA) (or 320 x 240) image size, right in the camera. Auction Mode automatically stitches multiple photos into a single image for easy uploading to your favorite auction site.

The Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd should appeal to the Internet-savvy crowd desiring an easy-to-use digital camera that makes taking pictures for their blogs a point-and-shoot affair.
