The FinePix 40i combines three of the most popular technologies of the moment: high-resolution stills and digital audio playback (MP3), as well as offering an enhanced movie clip capability. In common with a number of previous Fujifilm digital cameras, the 40i is also likely to attract much attention for its remarkably small size and beautiful design. The FinePix 40i is an ultra-compact digital camera featuring the high-resolution 1/1.7-inch Fujifilm 2.4-megapixel SuperCCD. Still images are captured in 2400x1800, 1280x960 or 640x480 and saved in Exif v2.1 JPEG format. It can also record and playback up to 80 seconds of motion-JPEG as 320 x 240 AVI video with sound. The FinePix 40i is housed in a highly durable metallic silver or blue metal body that fits easily into your pocket or purse. When the camera is not in use the lens is protected by a built-in metal lens cover. The 40i is also a very fast camera; it processes and stores even the largest images as fast as you can press the shutter button. The FinePix 40i is true multimedia device and functions as both a digital camera and an audio player for MP3 files. Shown here with the included remote control and ear buds. You can use other third-party headphones that have stereo mini-plugs. The audio remote control has volume up/down, rewind, fast forward, play, pause and stop buttons as well as an LCD info display that shows the battery condition, track number, volume info, audio mode and playback indicator. The audio system has a 2-level bass boost circuit and playback can be set for normal, repeat all or repeat track. The remote also serves as a camera control. In still image mode it can trip the shutter and operate the digital zoom. In playback mode it can control the slideshow functions. It cannot be used in movie mode. The 1.8-inch color LCD monitor has 110, 000 pixels of resolution and can be used for preview or review purposes. It is also used to change the camera and exposure settings via the onscreen menu system. The 40i also has a small eyelevel optical viewfinder so you can take pictures without using the color LCD. The FinePix 40i is true multimedia device and functions as both a digital camera and an audio player for MP3 files. Just like other MP3 audio players, users can 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 into which the FinePix 40i's provided headphones - or the user's own - can be inserted for private listening. As an added bonus, the remote control can be used with the camera to take and then view captured pictures, along with controlling the camera's digital zoom.
