Detecting Facial Proximity with FujiFilm FinePix Z200fd


When it comes to consumer-level digital cameras, we’re grown accustomed to things like high ISO ratings, impressive megapixel counts, and even smile recognition, but the FinePix Z200fd from FujiFilm takes things just a little further.

You see, when you set it up with Couple Timer Mode, it doesn’t just automatically snap a photo after a certain amount of time has passed. It doesn’t even do the basic facial recognition thing and take the picture when it detects two faces in frame. Nope, what the Z200fd does is wait until those two faces are a set distance apart. You’ll need to cuddle up real close to your sweetheart (or drunken friend) before the picture is taken.

Aside from this somewhat creepy feature, the FujiFilm FinePix Z200fd also has 10 megapixels, 5x zoom lens, and a remarkably slim profile.
