F50fd versus F40fd ISO test shots

The F50fd started appearing in Japanese stores today so I grabbed some quick ISO test shots compared with my F40fd. Tests were shot in manual mode with flash suppressed. The F50fd had image stabilization on as I was on my third expresso for the day

The F50fd is clearly noisier than the F40fd at ISO400 or above. It still beats the latest crop of other 12MP P&S cameras I also had the chance to play with but if you're after a low light P&S, you may want to grab an F40fd while they are still on the shelves.

One big shock with the F50fd was its appalling write speed to xD: 12MP fine photos took an unscientific 5 seconds to process during which you can't manipulate the camera controls. SD write speeds should be better but unfortunately I didn't have an SD handy for the tests.
