It features a maximum sensitivity of ISO 1600 has a 3:2 image format option, VGA movie capture at 30 fps and PictBridge compatibility.

The company also launched the £279 Finepix Z1, its first camera to use folded optical lens technology like that used by Pentax and Konica Minolta.

The super slim aluminum-cased Z1 uses a sliding lens cover as an on/off switch and has a 2.5-inch LCD, sensitivity of up to ISO 800 and the ability to shoot VGA quality movies. The Finepix A345 Zoom at £129 and the Finepix A350 Zoom at £149 are replacements for the A330 and A340 Zoom. The four-megapixel A345 and five-megapixel A350 are otherwise identical except for their digital zoom capability.

Both have a 1.7-inch LCD, 3x optical zoom (35-105 mm), use an xD-Picture Card for storage and are powered by two AA-type batteries.
