Bought this camera 3 days ago with/ for my adult daughter. I have/ had (Olympus 3010, XTi, Panasonic FZ8, Casio z750) several other digital cameras and by far this is the worst I have used. In Auto, which my daughter uses, The flash pictures all are grainy,as the previous reviwer had stated. I think the camera defaults to ISO 400 or higher to improves exposure, but the noise is very unacceptable. My Casio, but the resulting photos are much sharper, with much less grain and noise! z750 is ...

I have used the F50fd for five days, and I am really disappointed with the resulting images. As a beginner I prefer to use as much 'auto-setting' as possible. But I soon found out that I had to set ISO to max 400 to have something that looked better than a lousy webcam. I kept it for 5 days as I was sure that the result was a mistake, but no. Indoor shots with flash were always to noisy (large grains) even with restricted ISO and 6Mpixel. It might be possible that the noise would be gone on ...

As a previous owner of the F11 and F30 Fujifilm have a lot to live up to with this camera. On the whole I have been a Fujifilm fan since the F10 was released as it gave the user better ISO range and something a little different to other cameras at that time. I waited for the release of the F11 as I wanted more manual control over my pictures than the F10 allowed, I then went on to buy the F30 and now have the F50fd. Styling/ Build Quality - I do like the F50fd styling but do wish it was ...

I have just purchased the Fuji F50SE. Has lots of good functions and is of a very compact size but the photos it takes are awful. I find the noise levels completely unacceptable except at ISO 100 I have owned and sold few point and shoot digitals in the past and now also own a Nikon D70. I bought the fuji as a point and shoot camera for use when travelling. I am very disappointed with the quality of photos it provides. Bought this at Best Buys in New York on a trip from UK. If I lived in USA ...

The colour, high iso performance, manual options, size, and metal construction of this little camera make it a bigger winner for me. I read all the gripes about high iso on this board, bought the camera anyway, and couldn't be happier. ISO 1600 is grainy, yes, but when I set the camera to 6M and compared against the f40 in store, it looked just as good. Bottom line is that this camera is a top performer in low light and even the iso 1600 would give older dslrs a run for their money. If you ...

I also have Fujifilm F30 witch is great camera, I bought also F50, it has some nice additions like image stabilizer. The image quality is ok, I could say that at iso 100 and 200 is better than F30, but from iso 400 and above image quality is worst than F30. In fact iso 1600 is worst than iso 3200 on F30, and iso 800 is similar to iso 1600 on F30. In long exposure it goes up to just 8 seconds, thats way too little... I would love a camera with F30 sensor and settings plus image stabilizer, ...

Totally dissatisfied in all conditions except bright daylight at ISO 100. Problems: Weak flash. Image quality deteriorates rapidly above ISO 100. Focus unreliable.

Hello folks, I have been reading a lot through these boards/reviews in order to make an educated purchase. After owning the F30 and loving it I figured things could only get better. I bought the F40 hoping to be able to pass on my F30 to my girlfriend. Even though the F40 was performing close to the F30 I still noticed some differences in photo/video quality that kept my F30 solidly in my case. The F40 was given to my fiance. Then I awaited the release of the F50, anxiously! Boy, what a ...
