Don't lose your head with this camera

Fujifilm recognizes faces to keep them in the frame

When taking photos, we've beheaded more people than Henry XIII's personal executioner. That's why this new Fujifilm camera may be tailor-made for us.

The FinePix Z5fd, according to Akihabara News, can recognize and focus on faces so that they stay in the picture. Although this feature has been offered in some of Fujifilm's more expensive lines , we're hoping that that this model will be more affordable though no pricing has been disclosed.

We're so bad at focusing (especially at parties where alcohol is involved) that we're still not convinced we'll be able to get it right. But at 6 megapixels, we'll at least be able to get a clear shot of a neck or two.
