July 19, 2007 - Fujifilm UK has announced two additions to its F series; the F45*fd* and the F47*fd*. The new models replace the F40*fd*, the line’s flagship, announced in January. The F47*fd* features a 9.3MP Super CCD and IrSimple technology. The F45*fd* is identical to the F40*fd*, but is also offered in blue.

The F47*fd* offers increased resolution from previous FinePix models; the F40*fd* has 8.3MP and the new model has 9.0. Both models feature IrSimple technology for wireless transfer of photos from the camera to another IrSimple-enabled camera, computer, or printer. IrSimple is more widely available in Europe and Japan than in the U.S.

The F45*fd* retains all of the F40*fd*'s specs, but is also offered in blue.

The new models inherit a 3x optical zoom lens, 300-shot battery life, icon interface, scene mode dial, 2.5-inch LCD, and dual media slot, which accepts xD and SD cards, from the existing F40*fd*. The octagonal-shaped Super CCD promises improved low light performance. Previous iterations of Fujifilm’s Super CCD have outperformed more traditional sensor designs in terms of noise and dynamic range.

The F45*fd* and F47*fd* have face detection, Real Photo Technology, Intelligent Flash, and a Real Photo Processor. Real Photo Technology combines the company’s Super CCD, image processor, and Fujinon lens. Both cameras have a high ISO 2000 setting that captures images at full resolution. The Intelligent Flash feature (i-flash) automatically gauges how much flash power is needed to properly expose a detected face, while retaining some detail in the background, and adjusts accordingly.

The F45*fd* is exclusively available in the UK at Argos. The F47*fd* is exclusively available in the UK at Dixons. Fujifilm UK also announced the A825, an addition to its budget A-series line.
