Fujifilm JX280 features Smile / Blink Detection
Photos are all too often spoiled by people blinking or grimacing. Smile Detection works with Fujifilm’s highly-acclaimed Face Detection technology to detect smiles on faces - it will not take a picture until it detects a smile, so you’re guaranteed happy shots! Another new feature is Blink Detection which warns you if you have captured an image with people blinking, so you can re-shoot if necessary. The Fujifilm FinePix JX280 will be available end of August 2010 at a retail price of $149.95.
