Pocketable and durable
At less than 20mm thick, the FinePix Z5fd is small enough to fit easily into a pocket or bag. It features the traditional 'Z' series sliding lens cover, with a 'Z5' motif that lights up when switched on. It also features a rugged 2.5" scratch resistant LCD screen and non-extending Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens making it the perfect camera to use on the move.
Fujinon lens technology
From the early days of the FinePix Z1, Fujifilm has been perfecting the unique internal vertical zoom lens that allows the camera to be so compact. Rather than extending outwards, the optical zoom moves up and down beneath the lens to give a zoom range of 36mm to 108mm (x 3). The optical zoom can be extended up x 18.5 by combining it with the digital zoom (electronic cropping).
Despite its compact size, there are no compromises with optical clarity and speed of operation. The lens is robust, reliable, and delivers sharp pictures every time.
2.5 inch LCD screen
A camera of this class demands the very best TFT LCD, and at a generous size of 2.5" and a resolution of 230,000 pixels, you can't get much better.
Sensing ambient light, the LCD automatically adjusts brightness for optimum viewing indoors or outdoors. Manual control can provide additional brightness.
Unlike other inferior cameras, the LCD is protected by a scratch resistant, reinforced acrylic protective shield, so even if loose in a pocket, the LCD has its own in-built protection.
The extra-large LCD makes it easy to frame your photos and playback the results to friends in brilliant, rich colour. The NTSC/PAL video output also enables pictures to be viewed on TV.
I had one of these until recently when it developed a fault. I was very disappointed to return it for a refund (retailer no longer stocked it) a month ago as it had great pics (unlike the Z100 which I bought as a replacement and then returned). I'm over the moon that I've found it again for £100 less than I paid for it last summer!
My local store only had the pink one on display, but had other colours in stock.
