Fujifilm Finepix F40fd Reviews

Fujifilm Finepix F40fd ThinkCamera has reviewed the Fujifilm Finepix F40fd and here’s what they/she thinks, “The Fujifilm F40fd is a fabulous little camera. It is 8.3Mp, enough pixels for an enormous print and it’s the first Fujifilm compact to take both XD cards and SDs. It copes exceptionally well with high contrast situations such as bright sunshine. The Fujifilm F40fd is a joy to use and never disappoints. I got loads of lovely photos some of which I am going to use in my camera club competitions. I’ve even printed some out! Praise indeed. Its 2.5in LCD has a wider viewing angle than the F30 and F31fd. I did struggle a bit to see in the very bright light but that’s ‘cos I’m getting old I expect. At around £169 from the web it’s outstanding value. I’d buy it. (If I could hide it from my husband.)”

DigiCamReview has a review of the Fujifilm FinePix F40fd and writes, “The increase in megapixels, from 6 to 8, doesn’t seem to have any adverse effect on image quality, and like the F30, the F40fd has great image quality. Colours are very good and in a very wide range of situations the camera will take sharp, detailed pictures with good exposure. The camera is probably great for events where fast photography is essential. The challenges that this camera will face that most others will fail at will be low light situations where you don’t particularly want to use the flash. For these situations it has a scene mode that allows you to try and see what a photo would be like without the flash, and yet not lose the benefits of flash photography. The camera was generally competent and fast at focusing with the focus assist lamp activating when light was low. There is a good range of image sizes but few compression options, and the camera lacks a 16:9 wide-aspect ratio mode. The camera doesn’t give you many options to customise images in-camera; there are no sharpness or contrast controls for example. Purple fringing is slightly higher than average. ”

Megapixel has a review of the Fujifilm FinePix F40fd and writes, “As a high resolution, very compact camera, the FinePix F40fd should satisfy the needs and requirements of most point-and-shoot users. Easy to use, it offers a compatibility with SD memory cards — a very popular format that seems to occupy the sweet point between size, practicality and cost — and with Fuji’s own tiny memory card standard: XD. Moreover, it also offers an effective face detection system that goes a long way to ensure that photos of family and friends are correctly focused. All of which helps the F40fd produce good images from which users should get excellent prints.”
