Despite being only 19.8 millimeters thick, the 8-megapixel FinePix Z100fd is
packed with state-of-the-art technologies and features. These include a
mid-range Fujinon 5x optical zoom lens--the equivalent of a 36mm-180mm camera--a
high-resolution 2.7-inch LCD with a reinforced glass coating for scratch-free
durability, and sensitivity settings of up to ISO 1600 that allow natural images
that retain the atmosphere of evening events taken without the use of a flash.
Designed for the most style-conscious user, the FinePix Z100fd sports a totally
redesigned metal body that is guaranteed to turn heads wherever you take it.
From its unique 'diagonal slide' lens cover and illuminated 'Z' logo to its
eye-catching color combinations, the FinePix Z100fd sets a new standard in
8.0 megapixel resolution and 5x optical zoom
The high resolution of 8 megapixels in the sleek, flat body lets you crop and
enlarge faces and parts of scenes and still enjoy smooth tones and images. The
amazing power of 5x optical zoom lets you use a wide angle to capture the entire
scene or take great close-ups from far away.
Face Detection Technology plus automatic red-eye removal
The FinePix Z100fd features Fujifilm's innovative Face Detection Technology, a
one-touch selectable mode that identifies up to 10 human faces in a scene. Face
Detection Technology sets the correct focus for a chosen primary face and
exposure for all detected faces automatically, regardless of where subjects are
located within the frame. It can cope with back-lit scenes and it also comes in
handy for capturing the perfect self portrait.
The FinePix Z100fd also includes a new Automatic Red Eye Removal feature that
works in conjunction with Face Detection. Red eye is a common complaint given by
60 percent of digital camera users. The FinePix Z100fd instantly checks each
detected face for red eye, and if it's found, corrects it automatically, saving
the time consuming process of fixing it in your PC after the image is
The Blog mode automatically resizes any image captured to a properly sized
640x480 (QVGA) or 320 x 240 image size, right in the camera, saving time from
downloading it and adjusting it on a PC.
Photo folder management
This useful new feature organizes photos right in the camera, with 6 pre-set
file folders that can be easily downloaded to the computer for convenient image
management. Pre-set folders include: Travel, Family, Favorites, My Pictures,
Events, and a password-protected Private folder.
Dual image stabilization
The FinePix Z100fd is the first Z-series model to feature Fujifilm's Dual Image
Stabilization, which marries a mechanically stabilized CCD with high ISO
sensitivities for total anti-blur protection. No more shots spoiled by blur from
camera shake or moving subjects! High sensitivity lets you use a fast shutter to
freeze the action in sharp bright detail, while built-in CCD shift image
stabilization automatically compensates for camera shake.
i-Flash intelligent flash
i-Flash detects subtle lighting differences within a scene, and then varies
the flash intensity accordingly. It also leverages the high sensitivity of the
FinePix Z100fd to enable the camera to use less flash, preventing that "blasted
with light" effect that so many digital camera flashes leave you with. The
result is pleasing, natural tones with no flash "wash-out."
Dual shot mode
In this mode the FinePix Z100fd quickly shoots two images in succession -- one
with and one without the flash -- saving both. This convenient function lets the
user perform an on-the-spot picture comparison and decide whether the FinePix
Z100fd produced the most pleasing photo with flash, or without.
Special scene modes
The FinePix Z100fd has 16 scene positions including 'Fireworks,' 'Beach,'
'Party,' and 'Under Water,' offering a one-touch setting for almost any
