Fujifilm has released two more digicams in to the wild: a 6MP compact, and an intriguing DSLR with a ‘face detection’ feature.

The FinePix F20 on the left is a fairly standard 6.3MP snapper which particularly relishes low light conditions. Its ISO rating, which adjusts how sensitive the sensor is to light, goes up to an impressive level of 2000.

Other cool features include an intelligent flash which adjusts the power output according to conditions, a ‘dual shot’ which is effectively a short burst mode and a decent 300-shot battery life.

Lurking on the right is the S6500fd, which is touting what Fuji calls ‘Face Detectio.’. Sadly, this doesn’t mean it recognises the faces of friends in crowds, but instead enables it to lock onto eyes and mouths in any scene to make sure group shots are well framed.

Beyond that, it offers more standard features including a 6MP CCD, high ISO sensitivity (up to 3200), 10.7x optical zoom and 30fps video mode.
