Fujifilm Finepix F31fd Review

 

In the fast-moving, 'bigger better faster' world of the digital compact the Fujifilm FinePix F30 will be one of the rare few that are remembered after they have gone (the nearest this throwaway business gets to a 'classic'). The reason this unassuming,...

Excellent resolution and sharpness Class-leading high ISO performance; superb results up to ISO 400 Surprisingly good ISO 800 performance Very low shutter lag Class-leading battery life Clean, sharp results Improved handling of bright outdoor scenes...

Still some occasional mild exposure and highlight clipping in bright conditions (better than F30 though) Purple fringing Noisy focus, macro focus can be very slow (low light focus also slower) High speed AF works well but comes at a cost; you can't...

Pretty much everything we said about the F30 applies equally to the F31fd (in fact you'll notice that sections of the conclusion below are lifted straight from that review); this is a very minor upgrade indeed, which is good news and bad news. The good...

Fujifilm FinePix F31fd Digital Camera (6.3MP, 3024x2016, 3x Opt, 26MB Internal Memory, xD-Picture Slot)

 

The Fujifilm FinePix F31fd ($350 as of February 15, 2007) is a 6.3-megapixel camera with a 3X optical zoom. The metal body feels solid enough to take a few knocks, and it fits well in the hand. My only complaint with the construction is that the small...

Face detection improves portraits ; Excellent battery life

No viewfinder or panorama mode ; Lacks full manual control

The F31fd delivers very long battery life and its face detection improves portraits, but it lacks some common features.

The Fujifilm Finepix F31fd is an incremental upgrade of what is already a great camera, the Finepix F30, adding just a few new features and quite a significant increase in price. Face...

Fuji Finepix F31fd Review

 

Since the Fuji Finepix F31fd is only a minor update to the current champion of ultra-compact digital cameras, the Fuji Finepix F30, the assessment from that camera apply to the F31fd too. The minor changes are an updated image processing engine,...

High-ISO performance rivals DSLR, Accurate exposure and focus, Fantastic battery life, Fast and responsive

Fujifilm Finepix F31fd Pro Review

 

Introduction Kids and dogs beware; your picture will be taken. The durable Fujifilm FinePix F31fd is quick, has a large, easily viewed display, and with the controls and modes available results in a nifty snap shooter. "It's party time" with...

Excellent high ISO performance, Face detection, Color fidelity, 26MB Internal memory, Retains settings when powered down, Quick startup, Scene modes produce strong results, Excellent battery life, 10-second or 2-second self-timer, IR simple file...

No histogram display, No full manual exposure mode, Needs better grip, Mini USB cable too small, xD memory cards, Chromatic aberration, Only two stops of exposure adjustment, USB cover is a rubberized plug and plastic battery door

Conclusion What the F31fd does well, it does very well. Any failings the camera has are either minimal or standard among comparable cameras
