The Fuji FinePix 40i can capture and play MP3 files, as well as shoot up to 80 seconds of AVI video with sound.
Fuji Photo Film USA has announced a forthcoming digital still camera that also plays back MP3 files and records up to 80 seconds of AVI video.
According to Fuji, the 40i features the same Super CCD image sensor found in the FinePix 4700 Zoom digital camera. The 4700's resolution is 2,400 x 1,800 pixels. Fuji didn't say whether the 40i had the same resolution or not.
The camera measures 3.4" x 2.8" x 1.1". It has an equivalent ISO sensitivity of 200, built-in flash, five programmed exposure modes, a USB port for image transfer and a 1.8" LCD. It stores images on SmartMedia cards, which are used in both digital cameras and MP3 players.
The FinePix 40i also can capture 80 seconds of continuous AVI video with sound. Users can also download music to the FinePix 40i via its USB port and playback near CD-quality music. All MP3 controls (play/stop, forward/back, volume) are on a tethered remote, which also has a headphone jack. The remote control can also be used with the camera to take and view captured pictures, along with controlling the camera's digital zoom.
Bundled along with the camera will be two nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries, a charger, Adobe ActiveShare photo editing software and RealJukebox digital audio software. Fuji says it expects the camera to be available in the United States by late August for $699. For more information, visit http://www.fujifilm.com.
