Original Source Press Release:
Fujifilm Germany: FinePix F460 announced (UPDATED)|
(Monday, October 10, 2005 - 04:43 EDT)
While researching the previous item on Fujifilm UK's announcement of the FinePix Z2 Zoom, we found yet another model that looks to have been announced in Europe only - this time in the German market.
The Fujifilm FinePix F460 is a five megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom Fujinon-branded lens that follows the current trend with a large 2.5-inch LCD display, but no optical viewfinder. The F460 draws power from an included Lithium Ion rechargeable battery, and saves images on xD-Picture Card or 13MB of built-in memory.
Pricing hasn't been announced, but the Fujifilm FinePix F460 will ship in Germany this November.
UPDATED 2005-10-10 17:27ET: IR reader Gary Peterson wrote in to point out that the FinePix F460 is actually available in the US already, from Best Buy. The camera is indeed listed on their site - even though it isn't listed on the Fujifilm USA website - and is billed as a "Best Buy Exclusive". Thanks, Gary!

Fujifilm has announced the debut of the new FinePix F460, a 5.1- megapixel digital camera featuring a 3x optical zoom lens, a large, 2.5-inch LCD monitor, and 13 megabytes of internal memory, all packaged in a stylish slim, metallic body.
Distinguished by a full array of basic functions and innovative design, the ultra-slim FinePix F460, a mere 19.7mm thick, features a grip that fits well in the hand and a mode dial that allows selection of any of three modes (Auto/SP/Movie) with a single touch, making this digital camera remarkably simple to operate.
Scene positions selectable via the mode dial have been expanded from the conventional 4 positions* to 10 positions, making it possible to select optimized automatic settings to meet a variety of situations. In addition to the scene position selections, a Manual mode enables photographers to enjoy more flexibility to control the image quality.
Offering an optimum combination of function, design, and operability, the FinePix F460 will be available in the German market from November 2005.
