Posted by: Ralf Jurrien

Exclusive to some regions like the UK market, the Fujifilm FinePix F47fd digital compact camera has almost the same specifications (9MP vs 8.3MP) as the FinePix F40d that was announced in January 2007. Fujifilm was the first to introduce digital cameras with hardware-based Face Detection technology when the FinePix S6500fd was launched in July 2006. Because the technology was built-in to the camera’s processor, it was the world’s fastest, capturing faces in as little as 0.05 seconds. Face Detection has been popular among consumers and is now also available in the Fujifilm FinePix F31fd and FinePix Z5fd. Fujifilm adds the Fujifilm F47fd to its digital compact camera assortment.

Fujifilm F47fd camera - Face detection
Fujifilm’s hardware-based Face Detection technology captures up to ten faces in a frame in as little as 0.05 seconds, optimizing focus and exposure to take the best portrait shots. Face Detection sets your imagination free to compose photos without the need to manually set the camera to get the best photo; a simple push of the shutter button is all that is required. In playback mode, Face Detection can be used to maintain faces as the key focus of a photo when cropping or zooming in.

Fujifilm FinePix F47fd compact camera - Images and Sensitivity
The Fujifilm F47fd features stunning, slim-line design, 9 Megapixel high-performance Fujifilm Super CCD sensor, 3x optical zoom lens and an easy-to-view 2.5-inch LCD monitor. The Fujifilm FinePix F47fd camera also features low-light performance of ISO 2000 at full resolution and Fujifilm’s unique Intelligent Flash system, which enables users to capture natural looking images without the ‘washed out’ effect that can be the result of traditional on-camera flash.
