From the Manufacturer
The newly developed Face Detection 2.0 chip adds the data of side-on faces and angled faces into the originally developed Face Detection chip, and greatly expands the cameras ability to detect faces. Face Detection 2.0 detects up to 10 faces in as little as 0.05 seconds even though the subject may be turned sideways or is lying down. This next generation technology not only optimizes focus and exposure of detected faces but also enhances total quality by setting the ideal white balance to give stunning sets of photos.
Moreover, the FinePix F50fd employs clever red-eye correction software which, when combined with Face Detection 2.0 technology, instantly identifies and corrects red-eye, either as the shot is taken or in playback mode.
The FinePix F50fd incorporates a Fujinon 3x optical lens and the newly developed 7th-generation 12-megapixel Super CCD. This new 12-megapixel Super CCD gives exceptional resolution. Every photographer, from beginners to photo enthusiast, will marvel at the ability of the F50fd to distinguish small details like single strands of hair and to faithfully reproduce fine skin tones. The new 12.0-Megapixel sensor works closely in conjunction with the RP (Real Photo) Processor? and features several key improvements that increase the cameras efficiency. Even at the highest ISO 6400 sensitivity, image quality is amazingly high with minimal noise interference.
In addition, this is the first time that CCD shift Image Stabilization has been introduced into a FinePix camera. Combining CCD shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity, the F50fd offers a synergistic effect of excellent anti-blur protection, called Dual Image Stabilization. Even in dark scenes and at night, the Dual Image Stabilization system gives crisp results every time. High sensitivity allows camera to increase shutter speed to freeze the action, while CCD shift Image Stabilization automatically compensates for camera shake.
Fujifilm FinePix F50fd Highlights
Face Detection 2.0 New Face Detection 2.0 by Fujifilm advances Face Detection technology to a whole new level. By combining our existing advanced Face Detection with new processing capabilities, Face Detection 2.0 delivers better recognition of faces, even at angles never able to be detected by other systems. Additionally, Face Detection 2.0 allows for other useful features to be added such as Automatic Red-Eye removal. The most advanced Face Detection technology available today!
Dual Image Stabilization The FinePix F50fd gives you the best of both worlds where image stabilization is concerned. With industry standard optical images stabilization, the photographers hand is steadied for a clearer, blur free shot. Add to that the addition of Fujifilms Picture Stabilization Technology, and increase clarity and sharpness is achieved, even in low light conditions or when shooting moving subjects. The combination of the two is the ultimate in stabilization technology.
Automatic Red-Eye Removal With the help of Fujifilms new Face Detection 2.0, the F50fd has sophisticated intelligent software algorithms that detect red-eye and correct it in-camera. More than just red-eye reduction--this is red-eye elimination, after the image has been captured, to assure every picture looks its best.
