The camera is powered by two conventional size AA rechargeable batteries. In automatic mode, focus and exposure settings are controlled via the camera. The exposure setting can also be adjusted manually between –2.1 and +1.5. In movie mode, the camera can take up to 240 sec of action without sound in 160 x 120 pixel mode and 60 sec at a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. The movie clip can be played back via the built-in PAL or NTSC mode. The FinePix A210 will become available in August and has a RRP of 299 euros. An optional docking station is available for 79 euros (RRP).
