Equipped with Fujifilms Advanced Color Technology and a two megapixel CCD, the FinePix 2800 Zoom delivers world-renowned Fujifilm color to 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10-inch prints. Its most striking feature is a 6x optical zoom lens the same zooming power that can be found on Fujifilms critically acclaimed FinePix 6900 Zoom digital camera which brings the distant photographer much closer to the action. The camera is fully automatic, making picture taking a snap for the entire family and camera-to-computer image transfers occur in a flash with the camera's USB connectivity. Picture viewing is a pleasure as well with Fujifilms supplied FinePixViewer software that automatically launches the moment pictures are downloaded to a computer.

For example, with their traditional point and shoot controls, Advanced Color Technology and sub-$250 price points, Fujifilms FinePix A-Series cameras (A101 and A201) are the perfect first-time digital cameras for many consumers. For picture takers who want a little more than just basics along with some fun features and Fujifilms Advanced Color technology, the mid-range FinePix 2600 Zoom and FinePix 2800 Zoom fit the bill.
