The Fujifilm FinePix F50fd Digital Camera, offers users an ultra-compact digital camera that takes beautiful shots with the most advanced features and technology available, so that missing great shots is not an option. Combining a 12-MegaPixel, 7th Generation Super CCD with a 3.0x optical zoom and a 2.7" high-resolution 230,000 pixel wide angle view LCD, the FinePix F50fd is a compact powerhouse that incorporates all the features users have come to expect from Fujifilm's more advanced digital cameras. With the addition of Dual Image Stabilization, Face Detection 2.0 Technology with Automatic Red Eye Removal function, and ISO settings of up to ISO 6400, the F50fd takes compact digital cameras to the next level, arming users with a host of features and enabling them to take pictures never before possible.

The beautiful slim line outer-shell is just under 24mm deep, making the camera extremely pocketable, with a design that reflects the sophisticated technology within. The enhanced 2.7" LCD screen incorporates Fujifilm's wide view filter thereby expanding the viewing angle by as much as 25 degrees compared to earlier models, and the intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) system provides pop-up prompts to guide you through the menu, and makes the camera incredibly easy to use. The FinePix F50fd also features a number of convenience features such as a dual memory card slot (which accepts the xD-Picture Card and the popular Secure Digital (SD) card format), a Dual Shot mode that takes two pictures with one press of the shutter button, and a total of 15 special scene position making the camera ideally suited to any photo opportunity. Furthermore, when a still image isn't sufficient, the camera's movie mode, captures movie clips with sound that are of broadcast quality.

12.0 Megapixel Super CCD HR
The Finepix F50fd incorporates Fujifilm's innovative Super CCD sensor (featuring an octagonal pixel design), that allows you to capture superb highlights and shadow detail with a sensitivity up to ISO 6400, and delivers exceptional image quality, accurate details, smooth, attractive skin tones and true to life colors.
Fujinon 3x Zoom Lens
The 3x optical zoom aspherical Fujinon lens system incorporated into the FinePix F50fd is similar to those used widely in professional broadcast TV cameras, and provides high quality images with no optical distortions. The camera also has an 8.2x digital zoom that lets you get even closer with a combined zoom of over 24x.
Dual Image Stabilization
The FinePix F50fd gives you the best of both worlds where image stabilization is concerned. With industry standard mechanical image stabilization, the photographer's hand is steadied for a clearer, blur free shot. Add to that the addition of Fujifilm's Picture Stabilization Technology, and increased 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.
High ISO Sensitivity

Additionally the camera can provide astounding sensitivity capability at lower resolutions with up to ISO 3200 at 6MP and ISO 6400 at 3MP. Now you can take natural light pictures under conditions where even human vision may have difficulty discerning the details.
