Self-timer for lovers in new FujiFilm FinePix Z200fd

FujiFilm will start selling its newest digital camera, the FinePix Z200fd, in Japan on June 7th (MSRP: $390). It comes with a 10-megapixel sensor, a 5x optical zoom lens and a 2.7-inch LCD screen. SD/SDHC and xD cards are supported. The Z200fd boasts an ISO range from 64 to 1,600.

One function distinguishing the new FujiFilm model from other cameras is the self-timer for lovers (“ai suru taimaa” in Japanese). The Z200fd recognizes two people are posing for photographs and does the rest automatically. There are three stages of detection visualized by heart symbols on the LCD screen: 1 heart for just sitting next to each other, 2 hearts when the heads of the persons to be photographed come closer to each other and 3 hearts in the case of actual contact.

The Z200fd is FujiFilms update of the Z100fd available in the USA since last year. Buyers can choose from four different colors: pink, silver, black/red and black.
