FujiFilm Announces New Cameras

The Fujifilm FinePix F440 offers 4.1 million pixels for capturing clear, life-like images, while the Fujifilm FinePix F450 offers 5.2 million pixels for photographers who want even more imaging power.

“Because the FinePix F440 and F450 fit so easily into pockets and small handbags, they’re perfect to take to parties and special events – and with the 2-inch LCD screen, it’s easier than ever for consumers to show their friends the picture they’ve just taken,” said Susan Schaffer, Director, Consumer Products, Photo Imaging Division, Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc. “Fujifilm is pleased to continue its tradition of packaging accessible leading-edge digital technologies in distinctive designs with these new cameras.”

Top Features

The FinePix F440 offers photographers 4.1 million pixels, as well as a 3.4x optical and 3.6x digital zoom. The FinePix F450 offers users 5.2 million pixels, with a 3.4x optical and 4.1x digital zoom capability. Both cameras offer QVGA movie capture, recording 10 frames/second with sound. The FinePix F440 and F450 offer an easy-to-use range of automatic and manual features that make both the first-time digital photographer as well as the casual hobbyist comfortable.

The cameras run on a rechargeable NP-30 Li-ion battery designed to maximize power efficiencies, and come with an AC adapter. Both cameras use Fujifilm’s xD-Picture Card(tm) storage media. A 512MB card can hold up to 515 4-megapixel (normal) images for the FinePix F440 and up to 409 5-megapixel (normal) images for the FinePix F450. Both models come with a Picture Cradle for easy downloading, battery recharging and for use in PC-cam mode.

Slim Form Factor

The FinePix F440 and F450 fit neatly into most palms, and weigh 5.3 ounces without battery and storage media. The 2.9(W) x 2.5(H) x 0.8(D) inch metal-body design – similar in size to a deck of playing cards – fits easily into pockets and small bags, making it easier than ever to keep a camera nearby for everyday shots. Both cameras also offer a large 2-inch low-temp polysilicon TFT LCD screen, making it easier than ever to view and share images.

Great Prints

Fujifilm digital cameras offer consumers best-quality printed images made from home, at home and at the store. Both the FinePix F440 and F450 offer consumers PictBridge compatibility for fast and convenient at-home printing, without the use of a computer. Now, consumers can use Fujifilm’s inkjet paper in nearly any manufacturer’s inkjet printer to ensure long-lasting prints with bright colors.
