Press Release:

The Best Just Got Better – Fujifilm announces the FinePix F60fd

Fujifilm is pleased to announce the launch of the new FinePix F60fd, joining the existing range of high-tech, high-quality F-series cameras. Succeeding the hugely popular FinePix F50fd, the FinePix F60fd features a larger 3 .0 ” LCD screen, Face Detection 3.0 and brand new, proprietary, Scene Recognition technology.

Working Smarter and Harder

Beneath its stylish exterior, the FinePix F60fd utili se s the combination of high resolution and high sensitivity to produce images of breathtakingly beauty. Loaded with a 12 Megapixel Super CCD sensor, Dual Image Stabilisation (CCD-shift with high ISO), ISO sensitivity of 1600 (6400 at 3 MP ), and a Fujinon 3x zoom (3 5 -1 05 mm equivalent), the FinePix F60fd is a worthy successor of F-series classics like the FinePix F40fd or F50fd.

For users who like to have creative control over their compact and who want more than point-and-shoot photography, the FinePix F60fd has the option of full photographic control. Equally, the FinePix F60fd suits those consumers who are happy to rely on auto mode for simple, fuss-free photography. Available black the FinePix F60fd is due out this September as a sister model to the FinePix F100fd.

Scene Recognition -AUTO (SR AUTO) with Real Photo Technology

Most compact digital cameras feature scene modes where the user selects the scene they are photographing before they take the shot. In a first for Fujifilm cameras, the FinePix F60fd is equipped with Scene Recognition technology which cleverly detects a scene without the need of pre-selecting the mode on the camera. Having identified the most commonly photographed subjects, Fujifilm has developed technology to automatically identify and recognise different scenes – Portrait, Night, Landscape, and Macro. Once the scene in the frame has been detected, the camera will optimise the settings to capture the most stunning photo of your chosen subject. Real Photo Technology - the combination of the unique Super CCD sensor, RP Processor and Fujinon Lens - will work together to offer you stunning results. Natural skin tones for portraits, clear pictures with less noise for night scenes, pictures in detail for landscape and crisp pictures for macro. From now, don’t think. Let the camera work with the setting with SR AUTO and achieve striking results with FinePix F60fd .

Face Detection 3.0

First featured in the FinePix F100fd, the FinePix F60fd is equipped with Face Detection 3.0 technology, which goes one step further by recognising faces at more extreme angles. As with the original version of Face Detection, it can detect up to 10 faces in a scene in as little as 0 .03 6 seconds, automatically correcting focus, exposure, and white balance, regardless of where subjects are located within the frame. Face Detection 3.0 can register faces with up to 90 O movement in either direction for profiles,

and with rotations of up to 360 O. After the shot is taken, the system instantly corrects red-eye and then saves both the original and the corrected image file automatically.

Dual Image Stabilisation

As well as offering class-leading high ISO performance for avoiding subject blur when shooting in low light, the FinePix F60fd also features CCD-shift image stabilisation for avoiding the effects of camera shake at longer shutter speeds. The combination of high ISO and CCD-shift stabilisation offers a complete system for avoiding blur caused by hand shake or subject motion. Never before has a compact camera offered such a comprehensive solution for avoiding blurred results whil e retaining high-resolution photographic quality.

3.0 ” LCD and other useful functions

The FinePix F60fd is fitted with a class leading 230,000 pixel 3 .0 ” TFT monitor fitted with Fujifilm’s Wide View Film, which enables easy viewing of pictures at oblique angles to the screen. Further to this, a new sort by date system has been added. The FinePix F60fd also features another feature so popular in previous F-series models - Portrait Enhancer mode. The FinePix F60fd's powerful automatic retouching system gives skin tones a silky-smooth texture and removes blemishes such as spots and wrinkles.
