Finepix S8100fd Highlights
Features born from Face Detection
|1) Face in sharp focus, 2) Optimized brightness|
Fujifilms innovative face detection technology, recognized with a 2007 'Best of Whats New Award' from Popular Science Magazine, has enabled a number of advanced features that advanced consumer photographer will enjoy. Face Detection operates by identifying and prioritizing up to 10 faces in a framed scene and then adjusting the focus and exposure accordingly to ensure the sharpness and clarity of human subjects in the picture, regardless of background.
After the shot is captured, the automatic Red Eye Removal feature instantly checks each detected face for red eye and if its found, corrects it in the camera automatically, saving the time-consuming process of fixing it in your PC after the image is downloaded. A new Instant Zoom function captures moving subjects at high zoom settings. After zooming on a subject, a single button gives an additional 1.4x or 2x digital zoom at the center focus region of the frame. Zoom Bracketing performs a similar action using Fujifilms face detection technology to lock its zoom action on a subjects face automatically as it enters the shot. Zoom Bracketing
For fail-safe portraits or active zoom snapshots, a convenient Zoom Bracketing function automatically records the same image three times with zoom ratio settings of 1x, 1.4x and 2x at a single release of the shutter.
When function is activated, three frames are previewed in the viewfinder at 1x, 1.4x and 2x. In 10-megapixel mode, 1.4x frame is captured at 5M; 2x frame at 3M.
Dual Image Stabilization

As a result, an increase in clarity and sharpness is achieved, even in low light conditions. A Continuous Shooting Mode makes it easy to shoot moving subjects like pets and kids.
