F100FD Review - Issue: Pinkish Band at ISO400 Thread 2
Apr 18, 2008

The first thread (link above) has reached it's limit so it's time to start another one... Put in the word "review" at the top to get good hits on google so people are aware and Fuji will have to fix it quick.

There are 3 F100FD manufacturing locations:

F100FD Silver - Made in Japan
F100FD Black - Made in China
F100FD Silver - Made in China

I have tested all three versions and found some minor improvements over the earlier batch with F100FD Made in China being slightly better. Couldn't detect significant pink band problem in ISO400 and below. But other users have mentioned that there are issues even at ISO200:

Ever wondered why there are no professional reviews on F100FD? could it be because they are afraid of this issue coming out?

Someone should just send dpreview a camera and have them review it. After that, have them return it to amazon or something.

Here's the infamous pic of my baby again...
