Fujifilm FinePix AX280 equipped with scene recognition
Scene Recognition Auto (SR AUTO) ensures that you get a good picture every time. It intelligently detects the scene type and shooting conditions, and optimises the camera's focus, exposure and white balance to achieve perfect results. So whether you're photographing flowers or shooting a landscape, you will get flawless photos at the press of a button. Or if you prefer you can choose one of 13 programmed scene modes for extra control.
Fujifilm AX280 equipped with a Picture Search feature
If you have ever struggled to find the photo you are looking for on your camera, then this new function will be long awaited. Fujifilm is introducing a Picture Search feature on the FinePix AX280 which allows you to find all images taken in a particular scene mode (e.g. Portraits, Landscapes, or Macro shots) thereby ensuring it is much faster to navigate through the photos on your camera. For added creative versatility, Panoramic shooting mode allows you to stitch three photos together to create a stunning panoramic image, perfect for wide landscapes, tall buildings or large groups of people.
Face Detection function on the Fujifilm FinePix AX280 camera
Ideal for photographing portraits or group shots of people, the Fujifilm FinePix AX280 features Fujifilm's Face Detection technology to ensure the settings are optimised for the people in the picture. Candid shots in low-light are made simple with the Natural Light mode, which automatically increases the ISO to enable the flash to be forced off for discreet, non-intrusive shots. And, for those occasions when stills don't do a moment justice, HD Movie Mode with sound lets you record those precious memories and relive them time and time again in glorious HD resolution.
