Fujifilm FinePix F31fd Reviews

Fujifilm FinePix F31fd DPReview has reviewed the Fujifilm FinePix F31fd and wraps it up with, “Broadly speaking the F31fd – like the F30 before it – produces sharp, bright, clean output that puts most of its higher megapixel competitors to shame. It also goes without saying that in the ISO 400-800 range it is still absolutely unrivalled. Focus – though it may slow down a little when challenged – is very reliable indeed, and in decent light the auto white balance is faultless. Some of the issues we encountered with the F30 have been addressed – the exposure seems more reliable and the tone curve no longer produces that strange ‘flat midtones’ effect. This makes the F31fd a much more beginner-friendly ‘point and shoot’ camera than its predecessor, though like most compacts the contrast is set too high and highlights can and up clipped fairly easily. The bad news is that purple fringing is still a problem in contre-jour situations (and around specula highlights), there are still some situations where the metering gets things wrong (over exposing), though it does seem better.”
