Smart technology packed into a slim design. If you want a compact digital camera that offers easy-to-use features, amazing image quality and a slim go-anywhere design, the FE-280 is the camera for you.

Whether you're at a family reunion or a barbeque with friends, you always want great portrait shots. Face Detection tracks and focuses on your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.

Digital Image Stabilization (Dis) Mode & Edit.
With high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds you can freeze the action to capture sharp, blur-free images, even if the camera or your subject is moving. DIS Edit uses built-in gyro sensors to track camera movement so you can fix blurry images right in the camera.

Perfect Shot Preview.
It's no longer necessary to take multiple shots and then try to select the best one. Using a live, multi-frame window on the LCD, you can preview the effects of various settings and select and capture the perfect one before you shoot.
