The Latest FujiFilm FinePix Includes a Self Timer For Lovers

How often do you use the self timer feature on your camera? I remember the days when I used to set up my 35mm cam for that perfect shot, making sure I didn't waste any of my film. Thankfully with digital cameras, you can snap away and delete all the not-so-hot shots. Well FujiFilm will be releasing its new FinePix Z200fd in Japan on June 7, and it's said to have a neat self-timer feature.

One heart on the LCD screen means two people are sitting beside one another, two hearts means their heads are coming closer together, and three means they are in actual contact (use your imagination on that one).

Because the camera can actually focus in on objects in self-timer mode, the picture quality should be quite good. The cam also comes with a 10-megapixel sensor and a 5x optical zoom, which also makes it a pretty high class camera. Colors will include pink, silver, black/red, and black and it will be priced at $390. Stay tuned for U.S. availability.

Can't wait to see how the auto-focus performs. There are so many auto features on modern cameras, and many do not work so well. Take for example you are in a darkened auditorium trying to photo something on stage. The auto-flash senses the darkness and flashes. But because of the distance this simply makes the entire photo black. Unless you turn off the auto-flash you will never be able to take a decent photo in this situation. And then there is the redeye remover that takes a dark photo with a certain color light to superimpose over then next photo to remove the red eye. Works great if you can sit absolutly still, but if there is any motion at all, such as on a bus or in a hot tub, forget it, the picture will come out a big blurry mess. If you are lucky enough to catch the errors on the screen, it still takes 5 minutes to figure out what auto-feature is screwing your photos up and correct it, at which time that amazing moment you wanted to capture has now passed. Grrr. This is why I still love my old Sony Mavica! Can you just miniturize it and skip all the auto-crap?
