fujifilm f31fd face-detecting digital camera

Fujifilm's F31fd is the company's first compact digital camera equipped with the ability to spot faces in the frame then to focus in on them and set the right exposure accordingly. The gadget can cope with up to ten mugs at once, the company claimed. It's got anti-blur technology built in too, and is ready for low-light conditions with a sensitivity rating of ISO 3200. Pictures are snapped on a six megapixel sensor through the 3x optical zoom lens then displayed on the F31fd's 2.5in LCD. Fujifilm claims a battery life of 580 shots. The F31fd ships in November. ®
