Fujifilm FinePix Z5fd gets "Oscar" for Best Ultra Compact Digital Camera


Fujifilm’s ultra-slim digital camera, the FinePix Z5fd, has picked up a gong – the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) voted it the Best Ultra Compact Digital Camera at the TIPA Awards 2007.

The FinePix Z5fd is the first of Fujifilm’s Z range series to feature the company’s hardware-based Face Detection technology – which can detect faces and optimise exposure settings in just 0.05 seconds. other features include a 6.3 megapixel Super CCD HR, RP Processor II, 3x optical zoom, ISO 1600, Intelligent Flash and blog mode.

Hayley Buery, Fujifilm PR Manager, says: “This is the second time in as many
years that one of Fujifilm’s digital compact cameras has won this coveted
TIPA award. Hot on the heels of last year’s award for the FinePix F30, the recognition of the FinePix Z5fd compact is further proof of the commitment Fujifilm makes to consumers by putting cutting edge technology in pocket-sized cameras, especially the stylish Z range.”

The Awards Ceremony will take place on 31st May 2007 at the Congress Center
of the KölnMesse, Cologne.
