Have some fun with Fujifilm's new cameras - If you like to have fun and are a bit of an adrenaline junky then Fuji's new cameras are perfect for you.
Loaded with all the latest features, the lean 20mm super-slim body is both cool and strong. It is waterproof to depths of three meters and the smooth grip shape means it won't slip out of your hands when you need it most. And the big, rubber-like buttons are easy to use when you're quickly trying to capture those awesome adventure shots.
To get the best possible action shots, the FinePix Z33WP features Picture Stabilisation and Face Detection technology. Picture Stabilisation uses high sensitivity (up to 1600 ISO) to help reduce camera shake, freeze subject movement and improve low-light background detail to deliver virtually blur free images. Meanwhile, Face Detection can detect up to 10 faces in a frame and optimises focus and exposure for faces, rather than any background objects – perfect for pictures of people in the midst of the action.
First featured on Fujifilm's high-end compact, the FinePix F60fd, the FinePix Z33WP is fitted with Scene Recognition AUTO. This clever technology automatically detects the scene you're shooting – Night, Landscape, Macro, Portrait, Night Portrait and Backlight Portrait– and optimises the camera's settings to produce the best results.
The FinePix Z33WP also features two fun and handy Self-timer Modes – Couple and Group. These are great for when you, your friends, or partner, all want to be in the shot but there's no-one around to take the picture. All you have to do is select the number of faces and the camera automatically takes the shot once all faces are in the frame.
Finally, to enable you to share your shots with all your buddies, the FinePix Z33WP features the very popular Blog Mode. This re-sizes images to a cyber-friendly size so you can quickly and easily pop your pics on social networking sites such as Facebook and Flickr for all to see and enjoy.
Compact, cool, and ready to rise to any challenge, the FinePix Z33WP is available in five daring colours to suit your style – Kiwi Green, Hawaiian Blue, Daredevil Black, Liquid Gold and Rock Chick Pink.

Having evolved from Fujifilm's best selling FinePix Z20fd, the FinePix Z30 debuts with a brand new and original look. The stylish exterior with its smooth sculpted curves and tiny size means it will fit in to a pocket or bag, all ready for a night out. The cool, two tone colour scheme, featuring a metallic sliding lens cover with diamond studded-effect detail set against a matte body, will guarantee to make an impression with your friends. The only decision is what colour you desire – Fuchsia Pink, Jet Black, Pure White or Tangy Orange.
Most compact digital cameras feature scene modes where the user selects the scene they are photographing before they take the shot. The FinePix Z30 is equipped with Scene Recognition AUTO (SR AUTO) technology which cleverly detects a scene without the need to pre-select the mode on the camera. Having identified the most commonly photographed subjects, Fujifilm has developed technology to automatically identify and recognise different scenes – Portrait, Night, Landscape, Macro, Night Portrait and Backlight Portrait. Once the scene has been detected, the camera will optimise the settings to capture the most stunning photo of your chosen subject.
The FinePix Z30 features two self-timer modes: Couple Timer and Group Timer. Working in combination with Face Detection technology, the self-timer automatically sets off after the camera has detected faces in a frame. The camera won't take the photo if one of the faces is out the frame, so there's no need to worry about someone being missed out of the shot!
The Couple Timer mode cleverly detects two faces in a frame and will automatically release the shutter button as the two faces come closer together and can be set a various distances, whether they are standing side by side, or cheek-to-cheek.
Group shots have never been so easy. The FinePix Z30 Group Timer mode can detect up to four faces in a frame and automatically sets the timer to take the shot and will only fire when all faces are fully in the frame, so there's no danger of anyone being chopped out!
There's no fun in taking pictures if you can't share them or edit them to make sure that you and your friends are looking at your best. For users wanting to share their creative output with a wider audience, the FinePix Z30 new Dual Blog mode automatically resizes any still image or movie you've captured, letting you post pictures and videos to blogs, video-sharing or e-mail to friends with ease. Using the Successive Movie mode, in-camera editing allows for the creation of a 60 second movie clip, even when shooting in two or more scenes is desired. Start and restart multiple times to build a 60-second compilation, and edit the start and end points.
In addition, users can find and select their favourite shot using Microthumbnail View, which displays up to 100 thumb images on the 2.7" LCD screen.
