Fuji FinePix Z700EXR
Digital cameras that recognize human faces are nothing new, but Fujifilm's FinePix Z700EXR is the first with automatic dog/cat visage detection (in addition to human face recognition). This 12-megapixel point-and-shoot model optimizes focus and exposure for canine or feline mugs, albeit with a few limitations. It can't, for instance, detect animal faces in profile (so you're on your own for the classic "my bulldog looks like Alfred Hitchcock" silhouette shot) or in scenes containing both dogs and cats; and some breeds are easier to detect than others. Still, this fur-friendly camera is good news for pet owners.
