Go nocturnal with Fujifilm F20 digital camera


If the F30 isn’t already small enough for you, the good people at Fujifilm are offering an even more miniature version that, appropriately enough, is called the F20. Much of what you find on its bigger brother also applies to the F20. It has the same 6.3 megapixel CCD for fairly high resolution shots, coupled with a good-sized 2.5-inch LCD and industry standard 3x optical zoom.

The biggest selling point of the F20, however, is its ability to take crisp snapshots in dim lighting conditions. The maximum sensitivity (ISO 2000) is right up there with some of the best in this segment.

The flash automatically adjusts based on ambient lighting conditions, ensuring the best shot possible. Can’t decide whether you should use flash or not? No problem. The Natural Light & Flash feature takes two successive pictures — with and without flash — so that you can have the best of both worlds and decide after the fact. They’re calling it a “photographic safety net.”

Other key features include a 300-shot battery, 30fps VGA movie recording, and PictBridge support. Expect the Fujifilm F20 to retail around the same price as the F30 (under $400) when it hits UK shelves in September.
