footing for lower deck??

hi there, i am planning to build a deck that is 16 inches high, for the footing I am just wondering if i still need dig up to 4 ft or if i can use block concrete footing. the deck would be 12 x 16 ft.

Any deck regardless of height needs posts that go beyond the frost line.
