Having previously owned two Canon SLRs, a Fuji M603, S9500 and also had use of a Z5FD owned by my daughter, I have been looking for a pocket camera to use whenever the S9500 was too much to carry. My ageing and rather bulky M603 at 3 Mega pixels, until now my pocket camera, no longer has enough resolution for me. The thought of compromising on pixels and picture quality compared with the 9 Mega pixels of the S9500 did not appeal to me. The F50FD fits the bill. Despite the features this is an ...

I already have an F20 (and used a borrowed F31) so I had some expectations that this camera would be consistent with the F-series in terms of image quality and features. It was on special in Sydney at Bing Lee heavily discounted (only A$30 more than the F40 on the same shelf). I'm on my 2nd unit now. The first one after about 30 shots malfunctioned with a white screen (although menus and playback worked) and I had to take it back to get it exchanged). Couldn't reset it, couldn't fix it. Th ...

I just bought this camera a week ago after an several evaluations based on boht images and reviews found through this forum, thank's :-) I was looking for a very compact camera offering a good quality of the images, for sure better than my previous Pana 30FX and quite closer to my present K100 F50 does it, at least in good light ! Unfortunatly in low light all the 12M compact camera are soffering too noise but F50 is one of the best 12M in low light. What I do in this case is getting picture ...

I HAVE this camera, yes I actually own the camera I am commenting on. Firstly, I use it for low light sneaky shooting, and details at weddings. I works well. The noise issue being touted is not an issue to me till about 800. I found the f20 to be similar to be honest. It does very well if exposed correctly at 400iso and the 12 MP is not bad. If you are worried about it at all, shoot at what you need to (in terms of ISO) and then resize to 6mp in post. This way you can see the noise reduce and ...

DP Review hit the nail on the head when they questioned what the 12MP resolution will do to the hitherto incomparable advantage of the F30/31 - low-noise even with high ISO. I am afraid the jury is out. The 12MP resolution is great but comes at the price of very noticeable noise esp above ISO400. It does not feel like a higher rez version of the F30/31, more like a good hi rez camera. If I did not know any better I would have thought it was a Canon ELPH series camera with 12 MP. So, disa ...

Very Good 12 Megapixel pocket camera. I do not own this camera but I spent about 30 minutes with it trying it out and I do own the F30 and F20. Pros: 1. Resolution - The detail is awesome. The images are 4000 X 3000 pixels people!!! And, there is a lot detail 2. Size - It is smaller than F20/30/31d. 3. User menus - the menus are better than most Fuji cameras 4. SD support - you won't have to buy another retarded XD again Cons: Noise - now better than average pocket cameras but not as good as ...

After using the finepix A800 (8 megapixel entry level camera) for a couple of months and impresed of its image quality, I decided to buy the F31 for its manual controls and its suberb image quality. Unfortunately I was a little late, so I am a proud owner of a F50fd, since yesterday. As an experienced amateur, I noticed immediately, that this camera shows more noise than the A800 and it is quiet annoying already from ISO 400. This camera is great in construction and features and -as far i ...

Had the F50 for a few days now. First impressions are as follows: The camera looks and feels very good. Solid build, nice screen, focus’s well. Much nicer than the F30 top marks Fuji Problems: The picture quality is a bit noisy at 12 Mp even at 100 ISO. Slightly better at 6 Mp Pity there is a setting for 6 Mp and Fine Quality only Normal Pictures are slightly bleached not vibrant colours. Bit in its defence I’ve only had it for a few days and I still need to play with it

Received the F50fd, I currently have the F31fd. User navigation is improved with the jog wheel, which appears as wheel on LCD as a semi-circle. 2 custom settings on the jog wheel depending on your preference. LCD is crisp and a a shiny polished surface on the screen. Shutter lag is just as good, if not better than the F31fd. An extra image stabilisation button on the top right. Battery charger a welcomed compact little external box that goes straight to the wall socket without wires. Kudos to ...
