Fujifilm announces the FinePix Z110 card-style compact

By dpreview staff on Jan 5, 2012 at 05:00 GMT

Pre-CES: Fujifilm has announced the FinePix Z110 card-style compact camera. The Z110 is based around a 14MP CCD sensor and offers the same 28-140mm equivalent zoom as the more highly-specced Z1000EXR but doesn't include that model's sensor-shift image stabilization. The CCD sensor means the camera is limited to 720p HD movies capture.

Fujifilm FinePix Z110: Perfect camera for the style conscious snapper

The FinePix Z110 is the perfect camera for young, style-conscious, individuals that love taking pictures and videos of their friends and family. The FinePix Z110 has a 14.1 megapixel CCD sensor, a 5x Fujinon optical zoom lens and a host of innovative functions on board, so it’ll deliver great results whatever the conditions.

Premium image quality

The FinePix Z110 is perfectly designed for taking stunning portraits of friends and family, with unique imaging technology to lend a helping hand in the makeover process. Next to the FinePix Z110’s lens is a Frame Assist Mirror that’s curved to show the entirety of a scene and assist composition when the camera’s held at arms length for shooting a self-portrait or group shot. To help further, Face Detection will ensure that everyone in the shot is sharp and perfectly exposed. Plus, after an image has been taken, users can choose to apply the FinePix Face Retouching function, which helps to improve the subject’s appearance – always picture perfect.

Great pictures after dark

Sometimes it’s hard to get a good shot when light is limited. With the FinePix Z110 in hand, however, users can take their best ever party pictures, thanks to the camera’s dedicated Night Out mode that enables the capture of clear, sharp pictures with full detail.

Night Out mode has been optimised to work most effectively at a distance of approximately 2m from the subject. The FinePix Z110’s Intelligent Flash technology provides the correct amount of illumination and with a maximum sensitivity of ISO 3200 users can turn up the camera’s capability for those times when they don’t want to fire the flash.

In addition, the FinePix Z110 has Digital Image Stabilisation built-in, which reduces the effect of camera shake or subject movement for the very best results.

Supermodel styling

The FinePix Z110 is also a camera that users will enjoy showing off. The sleek all-metal casing slides open at the front to activate the camera and to reveal the premium-quality Fujinon lens. What’s more, the camera’s large 2.7-inch LCD screen allows users to compose and review images in detail, while the sleek and easy-to-use buttons enable swift control of the camera. The buttons are also illuminated, with a cool and contemporary blue LED light, for easy operation even in the dark.

Creative captures

Artistic individuals can go beyond still images with the FinePix Z110’s Motion Panorama mode and 720p HD movie capture. The Motion Panorama mode automatically stitches together pictures to create seamless, detail-filled panoramic images and is ideal for shooting holiday destinations or recording wide shots of action-packed parties.

For capturing movies, the FinePix Z110 has a dedicated button to start and finish movie recording so users don’t have to flick through the camera’s menus to begin creating short films. And thanks to the 14.1 mega-pixel sensor’s 720p HD movie capture, users can watch their creations in full quality on their HD ready TV, so the whole family can share the memories.

Easy pictures, every time

The FinePix Z110 also offers SR Auto mode that automatically assesses a scene and applies different settings to optimise the resulting images. Up to six different scenes can be detected: Portrait, Backlit Portrait, Macro, Landscape, Night Portrait and Night.

The FinePix Z110 will be available in six gorgeous colours: pink, purple, jade, blue, white and black
