This is the most colorful and cheesy of Fuji's camera blitz today. It's a slim fashion phone that the press release claims, to "flirt with youth." Never mind the generation Z target demographic, the Z10fd has 3x optical zoom, 2.5-inch lcd, slideshow mode, face detection tech with auto red eye removal, IR beaming, a blogging mode which reduces photo size on cam for EZ downloadin' to myspace, etc.
It does 320x240 video capture, can scale the power of its flash, has dual shot mode for back to back shots (with and without flash). and SD card compatibility on top of the crappy xD flavor we've come to not ever, ever use. The Li-on battery is good for 200 shots. The camera takes photos at up to 1600 ISO, which is what they market as image stabilization. Not really honest, if you ask me.
FUJIFILM TAKES ON GENERATION 'Z' The New 7.2 MP FinePix Z10fd Style-Cam Features Cutting Edge Technology that Flirts with Today's Youth
Valhalla, N.Y., July 26, 2007 - Responding to popular demand to be 'hooked up' at all times, FUJIFILM U.S.A. Inc. today unveiled a brand new digital camera designed specifically for today's fashion-conscious digital natives. Combining cutting edge technology with style and sophistication, the FinePix Z10fd provides tech-savvy Gen 'Z' users with an eye-catching digital camera that makes it easy to take great pictures and share them with the press of a button.
The 7.2 MegaPixel FinePix Z10fd features an ultra-portable design, making it easy to take this sexy micro-mini camera anywhere you go and it comes in five brilliant colors to match the latest styles of today's fashionistas - Wave Blue, Wasabi Green, Hot Pink, Sunset Orange, and Midnight Black. It also sports a Fujinon 3x optical Zoom lens, 2.5" LCD screen and packs 54MB of internal memory to give you some extra room when your memory card has had its fill. With its stunning high-resolution LCD, the FinePix Z10fd also has a cool new slideshow mode from Fujifilm that let's you view and share your photos spontaneously with friends with music provided to help set the mood.

With endless possibilities the FinePix Z10fd makes it easy and fun to stay connected with friends and family and share all life's moments through technology
Capturing the ultimate party pictures will never be an issue with the FinePix Z10fd, as it 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 such as concerts and it also comes in handy for capturing the perfect self portrait. The Z10 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% of digital camera users. Z10 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 downloaded.
The FinePix Z10fd comes equipped with Fujifilm's innovative IrSimpleTM technology for fast, easy wireless image transfer to any IrSimpleTM equipped device. With the FinePix Z10fd you can capture the moment, point to a similar device and share the image instantly with friends - so instead of making an innocent r take the group photo with five different cameras, they'll only have to take it once and IrSimpleTM handles the rest.
Also making life easier for the bloggers of the world, the FinePix Z10fd comes equipped with Fujifilm's handy Blog Mode that lets you post pictures to blogs, websites, auctions, or e-mail with ease by copying and automatically resizing any image you've captured to a properly sized 640x480 (VGA) (or 320 x 240) image size, right in the camera, saving time from downloading it and adjusting it on your PC.
In addition to these innovations, the FinePix Z10fd is hooked up with the following fantastic features:
Picture Stabilization: Picture Stabilization utilizes higher sensitivities, up to ISO 1600 in the Z10fd, (with an incredibly high signal to noise ratio for clean images), and faster shutter and operational speeds to help reduce camera shake, freeze subject movement and improve low light background detail.
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 Z10fd 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 Z10fd 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 Z10fd produced the most pleasing photo with flash, or without.
Special Scene Modes: The FinePix Z10fd has 14 scene positions including Fireworks, Beach and Snow, offering a one-touch setting for almost any situation.
xD / SD / SDHC Compatible slot: A new single media slot accepts both xD Picture Card and SD/SDHC media cards. One slot - two media options.
Battery Life: Long-life rechargeable Li-ion battery (up to 200 shots).

"We decided to create a camera that would mesh our latest technological advancements with today's popular trends and styles, and came up with the Z10fd."
