Fujifilm has quietly unveiled a 10-megapixel Digital SLR (DSLR) camera online, which integrates an HD video recording mode should you get bored of still image snapping.

In movie mode, the S2000HD camera can shoot at a resolution of up to 1280 x 720 pixels and records your motion picture masterpieces into AVI format. A 15x optical zoom features on the camera and it has a top ISO of 6400.

All the standard image enhancement features are present, including red-eye reduction and face detection. However, it’s a shame to see that smile detection or beauty shot mode didn’t make it onto the snapper.

The camera’s powered by four AA batteries and features a USB port for direct connection into your PC. Images and videos are stored onto SDHC memory cards and can be viewed back on the snapper’s 2.7in LCD.

Fujifilm’s S2000HD is available now for around $300 (£150/€200).
