FUJIFILM Corporation (President and CEO: Shigetaka Komori) is delighted to announce that the FinePix Z5fd and Frontier 550 have been selected for the prestigious Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) Awards of the Year 2007 in the following categories:

1. The Best Ultra Compact Digital Camera in Europe 2007-FinePix Z5fd
The statement from the association explains the reason as follows:
"The FinePix Z5fd is a compact, technological marvel that combines elegant design with a host of practical features. On top of its Face Detection system, it offers a 6MP Super CCD HR sensor, a top sensitivity of 1600 ISO and an innovative "Natural Light & with Flash" feature which shoots two pictures in quick succession and allows the user to choose the best. All the Z5fd's features are dedicated to producing the best possible results."

2. The Best Digital Minilab in Europe 2007 - Frontier 550
The statement from the association explains the reason as follows:
"Fujifilm's Frontier 550 digital lab system delivers up to 1200 prints (4R size) per hour in spite of its compact size. Its dry-to-dry processing time is only one minute and 22 seconds, which brings total processing time for a single order of 24 prints down to only 2 minutes and 24 seconds. This performance is achieved by using Fujifilm's new CP-49E Chemical System and Crystal Archive Paper Type II. Fujifilm's Frontier Manager lab management system also improves operator workflow and maximizes output capabilities."
