Have you ever taken a photo with the flash on, only to discover the image was washed out? The Fuji FinePix F40fd digital camera lets you see a preview of your pictures with the flash both on and off.
The F40fd can take two pictures, two milliseconds apart. One photo has the flash on, while the other has the flash off. Then, the LCD viewfinder displays both images for you to choose from, side-by-side so you can choose the best one. In addition, the FinePix offers face detection that can identify up to 10 individual faces in a scene, then automatically optimize focus and exposure for the best picture. The camera also offers an image stabilization mode to eliminate blur from moving the camera or from moving subjects.
The camera offers 8.3 megapixel resolution and has a 3X optical zoom lens. It can also capture 640×480 video at 30fps. The camera has an xD/SD memory card slot for up to 2GB of storage. The FinePix F40fd can be found this Spring for around $270.
