As with other A-Series models, both the A170 and A235 are affordable, quality digital cameras, packed full of technology you need to take a good picture. The 10 megapixel sensor on the A170 and the 12 megapixel sensor on the A235 both produce bright, detailed pictures of extraordinary high resolution and clarity. Both cameras perform well in low light and can shoot at up to ISO 1600, providing crisp, well-exposed photographic memories of your family and friends.
Fantastic Good Looks
Remarkably thin at 21.9 mm, both models are finished with a double coated high gloss finish to give an outstanding classy look.
It is often difficult to capture the full beauty of a sweeping landscape or a picture of a large group of people, at a wedding for example. Now in the A170 and A235 you can easily create impressive panoramic photos. Panorama Mode captures and combines up to 3 consecutive shots seamlessly, making one large panoramic shot.
Intelligent Scene Recognition
The A170 and A235 both have Intelligent Scene Recognition - the first A-Series models to feature this technology. ISR AUTO cleverly detects a scene without needing to pre-select the mode on the camera. Fujifilm has developed proprietary technology which intelligently identifies and recognizes 6 different scenes - Portrait, Landscape, Macro, Backlit Portrait, Night and Night Portrait. Once the scene in the frame has been detected, the camera will optimize the settings to capture the most stunning photo of your chosen subject. Portrait Mode works in conjunction with Face Detection technology to get the best possible portraits.
Picture Stabilization Mode
Also featuring Fujifilm’s Picture Stabilization Mode, both models allow you to wave goodbye to blurry pictures; this technology will produce pin-sharp pictures, time after time.
Power is Easy
Remembering to charge your batteries need never be a problem. Operating on two standard AA batteries, the A170 and A235 have exceptionally low power consumption. The A170 is expected to be available to Canadian consumers in September 2009 at a suggested retail price of $99.99 and the A235 at $119.99. The FinePix A170 will be offered in Silver and the A235 in Black and they both come with a 2 Year Canadian Manufacturer’s Warranty.
