Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Fujifilm FinePix Z5fd is fashionably elegant in silver, red or brown [all right, sophisticated wine red, decadent chocolate brown and lustrous brushed silver] in a 20mm (0.8 in.) thin all-metal ultra-compact body.

Good looks aside, the Fujifilm Z5fd features the 5th Generation Super CCD HR which, together with Real Photo Processor II, provides low noise high ISO (up to ISO 1600) results -- allowing impressive low-light photography.

It has 6MP resolution, a3x optical zoom non-extending lens and a high resolution (230,000 pixels) extra large 2.5 in. LCD monitor with scratch resistant, reinforced acrylic protective shield.

A new "Intelligent-Flash" [i-Flash] system prevents washed-out overexposure of the main subject when using high ISOs. Used together with high ISO, i-Flash ensures that both the background [high ISO] and main subject [i-Flash] are properly exposed in low-light situations when flash is used. A Dual Shot mode takes 2 pictures, one with flash and one without -- then displays them side-by-side for on-the-spot comparison.

Picture Stabilization automatically sets the ISO and shutter speed to prevent blurring due to camera shake or a fast-moving subject. A Blog Mode makes posting images to the web fast and easy.

Fourteen [14] easy-to-use scene modes automate exposure in many common picture-taking situations such as fireworks, beach, snow, sunset, party.

VGA (640x480) Video movie with sound is captured at 30fps.

PictBridge-compatibility means that users can print directly from camera to a PictBridge-compatible printer without going through a computer.

The Fujifilm FinePix Z5fd should appeal to those looking for an easy-to-use ultra compact digital camera that not only looks stylish but has true low-light capability.
