I've got the 31fd. This one is for my daughter. Its not as "forgiving" as the 31fd, you actually have to know what you are doing to end up with a good picture, by adjusting the exposure with the EV setting, and relyiing on A or S mode rather than the fully automatic settings. The custom white balance works well and althought there's no ISO button its not hard to find. 800+ ISO not as good as the 31fd, but it still is much better to any other recent P&S.

The f50fd is not as good as the f31fd because, for twice as many mega pixels, it just does NOT deliver a twice as better (sharper, more saturated, lower noise) picture performance than the fantastic f31fd, besides using up battery as if there is no tomorrow. But, of course, one understands the business smarts of Fuji in catoring to a social mindset that just minds the haves ("Look at me, look at me, mee, MEEEE!!! MIIINE is a 12MPixel one!") and not the content of quality, whether that be of ...

I bought this camera after reading some reviews and when i first tried it out i was kind of disapointed with the image quality, after some experience and some play around my inicial disapointment vanished and the results are turning out to be surprisingly pleasant!! No mistakes, it is not a SLR but it was not built to be one!!

the FinePix F50fd is a decently priced 12 megapixel compact, however the lens and CCD clearly can't handle that many megapixels, since even ISO 100 shows noise and moire artifacts. It is a pure marketing decision to pack that many megapixels, there is no extra detail produced over a 7 megapixel camera, try upsampling an image from a lower resolution camera that takes sharp pictures and it will be sharper than what this camera outputs. Problems: - Image stabilizer less effective than the ...

If I listened to the negative reviews posted here and elsewhere, I wouldn't have known how excellent a camera the F50fd is! Some folks seem to have made up their minds without even having owned or used the camera in the first place! It's low light performance is excellent for what it was intended for, casual low-light snapshots. If I needed more low light sensitivity and less noise, I'd bring my DSLR. Can't stuff a DSLR in your pocket or too lazy to carry one? Then you don't want the least ...

I have only had this one day so maybe posting a bit early but I wanted to give some hope to those being put off by these reviews. Took me ages to decide on this camera due to reviews here. I upgraded from an f440. The camera is very attractive with a large lcd and like most, no viewfinder, but i dont use that anyway. There is a wealth of features on this camera and I think if you want a camera where you really just point and shoot and only use auto mode this may not be for you. I took a ...

I just purchased this camera in favor over the Sony T-200. I love the F50. I got great results in a low light setting. The face detection is just awesome. I have my ISO at a 400 setting and I don't see any noise in the pix. I am glad Fuji stuffed this with 12 MPs!!! Problems: I did not encounter any problems yet,

Disappointing performance compared to its predecessors. I bought this as a replacement to F10 predecessor. I had been impressed by its image performance specifically its clarity and colour rendition. I bought the F50 pretty much sight-unseen expecting it to at least be equal in performance in some features - if not exceed them across the board. In summary I have returned it for a full refund for the simple fact that the image quality was so appalling that the improvements in other areas just ...
