Continuing its highly acclaimed F series of high-performance compact cameras – F10, F20, F30 and F31fd – Fujifilm has launched the FinePix F40fd, featuring 8.3 megapixels, 3x zoom lens, 300-shot battery life, Face Detection technology and support for both xD-Picture Card and SD card formats.
This is clearly aimed at the serious snap-shooter who takes a lot of pictures and demands high performance from a compact digital camera. The F40fd debuts a redesigned outer-shell and graphical user interface (GUI) system for Fujifilmâ€™s F series. Itâ€™s also slimmer than its predecessor at 23.3mm deep and makes it even more pocketable.
The F40fd sports an enhanced 2.5-inch LCD screen and claims a more realistic ISO 2000 light sensitivity than the F31fdâ€™s overblown ISO 3200. The new cameraâ€™s real strength, though, lies in Fujifilmâ€™s Real Photo Technology which brings together CCD, processor and lens to deliver images of optimum quality, and in its face detection algorithm which prioritizes faces of people above other details.
