The “Fashionable & Elegant” FE series of digital cameras incorporate a high-power zoom lens with wide-angle shooting capability in a slim, stylish body, together with an enhanced selection of automated functions including the iAUTO (Intelligent Auto) function which automatically optimizes the camera’s settings to best suit the scene being shot. Designed to make it easy for anyone to master the digital camera’s three basic functions – “shooting, viewing and deleting”, these cameras are simple, fun, and friendly.

The new FE-47 features four Magic Filter effects that instantaneously turn scenes from daily life into powerful, evocative images. With its genesis in the image processing technology inherent to the digital camera, this function takes picture-taking to a whole new level of inspiration and enjoyment. Another big feature, AF Tracking, makes it much easier to shoot fast-moving subjects such as children or pets. The camera tracks the moving subject automatically and keeps it in focus throughout so that the user can image it with optimum focus and brightness (exposure) simply by pressing the shutter button at any time during tracking.
