Fujifilm FinePix F40fd
Fujifilm FinePix F40fd digital camera : We are pleased with the introduction of the Fujifilm Digital Camera FinePix F40fd into the overseas market. Fujifilm was the first to introduce digital cameras with hardware-based Face Detection technology when the FinePix S6500fd was launched in July 2006. Because the technology was built-in to the camera’s processor, it was the world’s fastest, capturing faces in as little as 0.05 seconds. Face Detection has been popular among consumers and is now also available in the FinePix F31fd and FinePix Z5fd. In Spring 2007 Fujifilm adds the FinePix F40fd to its Face Detection FinePix lineup. The new camera features slim-line design, 8.3-megapixel high-performance and a Fujifilm Super CCD sensor.|

The FinePix F40fd digital camera also features a 3x optical zoom lens, an easy-to-view 2.5-inch LCD monitor and low-light performance of ISO 2000 at full resolution and Fujifilm’s unique Intelligent Flash system, which enables users to capture natural looking images without the ‘washed out’ effect that can be the result of traditional on-camera flash.
Fujifilm FinePix F40fd - Face Detection
Fujifilm’s hardware-based Face Detection technology captures up to ten faces in a frame in as little as 0.05 seconds, optimizing focus and exposure to take the best portrait shots. Face Detection sets your imagination free to compose photos without the need to manually set the camera to get the best photo; a simple push of the shutter button is all that is required. In playback mode, Face Detection can be used to maintain faces as a key focus when cropping or zooming in.
Fujifilm FinePix F40fd - Real Photo Technology
With Fujifilm’s proprietary Super CCD HR VI and RP (Real Photo) Processor II, the FinePix F40fd offers ISO 2000 sensitivity at full resolution of 8.3 Megapixels. This high sensitivity delivers images that are crisp and clear, even at night or when shooting fast-moving subjects. Intelligent Flash analyzes the subject and controls flash and exposure levels accordingly. When combined with Face Detection, Intelligent Flash adjusts flash power output to the optimum level for skin tones.
Fujifilm F40 fd - Wide-View 2.5 inch LCD screen
The FinePix F40fd features an improved 2.5” LCD screen. It is coated with Fujifilm’s WV film, which expands screen viewing angle by 25 degrees (maximum) compared to the FinePix F31fd. Compact design (23.3mm thin), redesigned button layout and a new mode dial help make the FinePix F40fd incredibly easy to use. In addition, a new GUI makes the camera’s menu system simple to navigate, with ‘pop-up’ explanations to guide users to the correct mode or menu option. Prices will be announced just before the introduction date in March 2007.
