Meanwhile, Japanese electronics maker Panasonic Corp has launched a new camera that can brush up, clean up and even put make-up on the subject's face.
The LUMIX FX77, released last Friday, has a "beauty re-touch" function that will whiten your teeth, increase the translucency of your skin, remove dark eye circles, make your face look smaller and even magnify the size of your eyes.
For the final touch, it will apply rouge, lipstick and even eye shadow.
There has been huge customer demand for such a product, said Akiko Enoki, a Panasonic project manager in charge of developing the camera.
"According to data we've acquired, around 50 per cent of our digital camera clients are not satisfied with the way their faces look in a photograph," she said.
"So we came up with the idea so our clients can fix parts they don't like about their faces after they've taken the picture."With the digital camera market saturated, Panasonic hopes the current craze for social networking and blogs that has swept Japan and the world will help lift their product's fortunes
