Fujifilm FinePix F60fd review
Jan 19, 2009

The camera features the largest sensor among subcompacts and consequently one of the best low-light performances; ISO 800 is still well useable. On the other hand, the camera chooses high ISO even if it not necessary and in most automatic modes the manual ISO override and exposure compensation are not accessible. The resolution for this size of chip and apertures available is diffraction limited at about 6 MP, and my tests confirmed that 12 MP setting does not provide any additional detail. Still, at 6 MP the pictures exhibit more resolution and lower noise compared to those taken by 5-year-old Minolta A1, Minolta's flagship camera of the time. Face recognition and red-eye removal are quite efficient. The camera is very small and light, it can be easily carried in a pocked the whole day. Among the features I only miss histogram.

Problems:

The camera tends to overexpose in difficult lighting conditions and the exposure compensation is available only in P, S and M modes. Oddly enough, the "M" mode is a fully automatic mode with manual overrides of camera settings enabled.
