The stylish compact contains an impressive amount of technology in its tiny, chic shell including Fujifilm's unique 6.3 Megapixel Super CCD HR, RP Processor II, 3x optical zoom, ISO 1600, Intelligent Flash and new blog mode. Hayley Buery of Fujifilm says: "This is the second time in as many years that one of Fujifilm's digital compact cameras has won this coveted TIPA award. Hot on the heels of last year's award for the FinePix F30, the recognition of the FinePix Z5fd compact is further proof of the commitment Fujifilm makes to consumers by putting cutting edge technology in pocket-sized cameras, especially the stylish 'Z' range."

In a statement from the judges, explaining why they chose the FinePix Z5fd as Best Ultra Compact Digital Camera of 2007, they commented: "The Fujifilm FinePix Z5fd is a compact, technological marvel that combines elegant design with a host of practical features.
