Fujifilm FinePix (Silver) review

 

Fujifilm was among the first camera makers to push up to ISO 1,600 and beyond in compact cameras, thanks to its effective noise-reduction algorithms. That resulted in a parade of double-digit F-series cameras that employ Fuji's Real Photo Technology--a...

Very nice image quality at lower ISOs; effective face detection.

No optical or mechanical image stabilization; slightly sluggish performance; no aperture-priority or shutter-priority modes.

Fuji's FinePix F40fd is a nice point-and-shoot that produces decent images, though it's a tad slow and lacks image stabilization.

Fuji Finepix F40fd

 

The Fujifilm FinePix F40fd delivers quality shots and good performance as well as compelling features, including face detection.

Facial-recognition technology. No shutter lag. Good video quality. SD card support.

Sluggish (continuous) burst mode. Some purple fringing in test shots. Can't adjust flash illumination.

Fujifilm Finepix F40fd Review

 

Exactly one year ago we reviewed the Fujifilm Finepix F40fd's predeccessor, the Finepix F20 model, which we called "one of the most successful marriages of price to performance seen in recent months". ...

The Fujifilm Finepix F40fd undoubtedly offers a number of significant improvements to what was a great camera, the F20, which we gave a Highly Recommended award one year ago. There's an increase...

Fuji FinePix F40fd

 

Other features on the F40fd include a standard-issue 3X optical zoom lens, a gorgeous 2.5" LCD display, point-and-shoot operation, a dual xD/SD memory card slot, and a VGA movie mode. Oh, and face detection too -- hence the "fd" in the model name

Very good photo quality, with less noise than competition at high ISOs (though see issues below) ; Small, stylish, and well built ; Gorgeous 2.5" LCD display has high resolution and fluid frame rate; good indoor/outdoor visibility ; AF-assist lamp,...

Fair amount of noise reduction artifacting, even at ISO 100 ; Some operations are slower than average (shot-to-shot times, image playback) ; Disappointing continuous shooting modes ; Custom white balance not previewed on LCD ; More manual controls...

I pretty much touched on the F40's negative points in the preceding paragraphs. The bottom line is that the FinePix F40fd is a capable point-and-shoot camera, best suited to people who take low light photos and aren't planning on turning them into huge...

Fujifilm Finepix F40fd Review

 

Teddy Roosevelt is credited with saying "Speak softly and carry a big stick".

Best in class high ISO noise performance ; Good images and color reproduction ; Largely automatic operation simplifies use

No real image stabilization ; No viewfinder

The F40fd could easily get lost in the standard zoom, compact point & shoot camera field: a 3x optical zoom provides a 36 to 108mm focal length (35mm film equivalent), 25MB of internal memory, ISO sensitivity to 1600, Face Detection focus technology,...

Fujifilm FinePix F40fd

 

Read a digital camera review of the Fuji film FinePix F40fd digital camera with face detection technology on DigitalCameraInfo.com.

The 8.3-megapixel Fujifilm FinePix F40*fd* has more resolution than its F-series siblings and proved through performance tests that its new 1/1.6-inch image sensor is worthy of the hype; it kept noise to a minimum and resolution to a maximum. Pictures...

This digital camera has mainly Automatic modes. Its 16 Scene modes include an Underwater mode that tempts consumers to also purchase the $179 waterproof housing. While that mode is quite specialized, the Natural & With Flash mode is much more useful....

Fuji Finepix F40fd

 

The Fuji Finepix F40fd is an excellent ultra-compact digital camera with great image quality and speed of operation.

Very low image noise, Nicely saturated colors, Good automatic white-balance, Good exposure accuracy, Excellent lens sharpness

Slow shot-to-shoot speed, ISO 2000 not selectable, Above average purple fringing, Poorly placed tripod-mout, Too few zoom steps

The Fuji Finepix F40 is an excellent ultra-compact. Despite not being the best, the F40 produces low-noise images with plenty of details. Add to that its good speed of operation, good battery-life and you have a great ultra-compact digital camera.
