The Fujifilm F60fd compact will begin shipping in September, with a price tag expected to be about $300. It is the latest iteration of a successful Face Detection feature coupled with low light shooting capability that started with the F31fd announced in September of 2006.
The F60fd features a 12-MegaPixel 1/1.6″ Super CCD HR image sensor, 3.0x optical zoom and a new 3-inch LCD. It also integrates Dual Image Stabilization, Face Detection 3.0 Technology with Automatic Red Eye Removal function, and new SR AUTO (Scene Recognition) mode.
Its centerpiece feature of course is its great low light shooting capability. The FinePix F60fd can utilize ISO settings of up to 1600 at full resolution, 3200 at 6MP and 6400 at 3MP to capture sharp images even in low light.
