The camera is built around a stabilized 16MP CCD sensor and a 28-280mm equivalent lens to offer flexibility at an accessible price point.

Packed with features
Boasting a Fujinon 10x wide-angle optical zoom lens in a slim and stylish body, the FinePix T400 is ideal for travel or those users simply looking for the versatility of a wide zoom range. The FinePix T400 has a 28-280mm zoom range (35mm equivalent to a camera) which in addition to the long zoom, makes it great for wide-angle shots filled with detail. Inside the camera is 16 megapixel CCD sensor with an ISO range of 100 to 3200*¹, enabling the FinePix T400 to continue capturing top-quality shots even in low-light environments. In addition, CCD Shift Image Stabilisation helps eliminate camera shake and keeps pictures sharp, whatever the conditions.
Your best pictures, every time
The FinePix T400 may be small and pocketable, but it’s still packed with advanced imaging technology to ensure users always get a fantastic picture or movie of a scene. Features include Fujifilm’s extremely popular Motion Panorama mode where users simply press the shutter button, rotate the camera and release the shutter – the FinePix T400 then automatically stitches the images together to create a fantastic panoramic shot, which can easily be printed.
In addition, the FinePix T400 offers Smile & Shoot and Blink Detection modes for the best possible portraits as well as Face Recognition, which ensures that the people who matter the most are always correctly exposed and focused. And for those occasions when users are shooting a wide variety of images, Automatic Scene Recognition technology ensures the optimum camera settings are always deployed for the best images of a given scene or location.
Perfect HD movie capture
The FinePix T400’s brilliance doesn’t stop with still images as it’s been designed to make capturing movies even easier. A dedicated movie recording button starts and stops movie recordings to make movie capture simple and, once the movie footage has been captured in 720p HD, both still images and movies can be reviewed on any HD ready television. The FinePix T400 also has in-camera movie editing features to allow users to edit their movie footage without having to upload to a computer or use complicated movie editing software.
Never miss a shot
As well as improved picture-taking features, the FinePix T400 has also been given additional enhancements over its predecessor, making it even better to use. The Auto Focus speed has been dramatically improved helping users lock onto their subjects in a flash, shutter lag has been reduced and the start-up time shortened, ensuring that the FinePix T400 is always ready.
Further improvements have been made to the 3.0-inch LCD screen, which is now brighter and easier to see. This makes reviewing photos and movies simpler, especially when in bright sunlight. The camera’s buttons have been ergonomically placed to make the camera comfortable to hold and operate, with the zoom control located under the users’ thumb and the dedicated movie recording button standing out on the camera’s reverse.
Available in 5 colours: Pink, Purple, Blue, Silver and Black.
