Fuji Finepix F100fd

neocamera.com
29 September 2011
  • Summary: The Fuji Finepix F100fd is the new flagship F-series digital camera from Fuji. It combines a stabilized 12 megapixels sensor with a 5X wide-angle optical zoom lens in a body which is about 1" thick. With that come ISO capabilities up to 3200 at full-resolution and up to 12800 at 3 megapixels. This makes the F100 an instant contender for most-specified ultra-compact cameras.
  • Pros: Image noise significantly below average at all ISO settings, Large prints possible at up to ISO 400, Good preservation of details and sharpness, Wide dynamic range, Very fast and responsive, Excellent LCD visibility
  • Cons: Exposure-compensation and white-balance are slow to access, Very limited use ISO 6400 and 12800 modes, High barrel distortion near wide-angle, Difficult to hold securely, Short battery-life

  • Conclusion: The FinePix F100fd is a compact camera with a nice 5X optical zoom lens, complete with sensor shift-image stabilization. The F100fd finds itself competing against the likes of other compact cameras which are, mostly, thinner... and the thing that the FinePix F100fd can use to set itself apart is by boasting better image quality characteristics than the others.
  • Pros: Stylish camera with an image-stabilized 5X lens, Support for two memory card types (SD/SDHC and xD-Picture cards), Camera performance is snappy (with one exception), 2.7 inch LCD is sharp and visible indoors and out, Dynamic range setting allows increase in DR, Automatic redeye removal and Natural Light mode, Image quality is very good, better than other cameras
  • Cons: Slow startup time, Below average battery life, No manual exposure control modes, not enough playback info, Main menu not easily accessible; too many burst modes, High barrel distortion at wide-angle

  • Excerpt: The FinePix F100fd ($379) is the top model in Fuji's venerable F-series of digital cameras. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the F-series, these cameras were somewhat famous for their low light / high sensitivity shooting abilities. As Fuji started to play the Megapixel game (along with everyone else) with the F50fd, that advantage started to decline a bit.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality; slightly better than competition at ISO 400 and 800, 5X zoom lens in a compact, stylish body, CCD-shift image stabilization, Nice 2.7" LCD with good outdoor and low light visibility, Good autofocus performance, Effective dynamic range expansion feature (though ISO sensitivity goes up, too), Redeye not a problem thanks to auto removal feature, Memory card slot supports both xD and SD/SDHC cards, Optional underwater case
  • Cons: Doesn't live up to the legacy of earlier F-series models, Poor image quality at highest ISO settings; some detail smudging at low ISOs, Slow startup time for a compact camera, Below average battery life, Lens is on the slow side at wide-angle, No optical viewfinder, No image stabilization in movie mode (as far as I can tell), Few manual controls, Plastic tripod mount; can't access memory card slot while camera is on a tripod

Fujifilm FinePix F100fd Review

LAPTOP Magazine
27 May 2008
  • Summary: One thing's for sure: The Fujifilm FinePix F100fd takes good pictures. We love its rich, accurate colors, reliable image stabilization, face detection, and strong low-light performance. However, a few quirks, including a poorly located flash and cluttered menus, make it less than user-friendly. What's more, the technology that makes it special--wide dynamic range shooting--is only available in Manual Mode.

Fujifilm FinePix F100fd Review

Digital Camera Review
8 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Fujifilm's F series compact digitals with the SuperCCD sensor have enjoyed a reputation for better than average high-ISO noise performance dating back to at least the F30. When the F50fd got a healthy boost in resolution on the same-sized sensor, noise performance slipped a bit – at least by Fuji standards.
  • Pros: Good image and color quality, Good shutter performance, Class-leading ISO performance
  • Cons: No viewfinder, Battery life could be better, Miss those manual controls

  • Conclusion: Not every digital camera can be classed as outstanding. The Fuji Finepix F100FD does a decent job without quite hitting the standard achieved by some of the other digital cameras I have tested recently.
  • Pros: Good at ISO 400
  • Cons: Picture quality could be 10 percent better.

  • Excerpt: The F100fd from Fujifilm houses a 12Mp sensor and is fitted with a 5x optical zoom lens, equivalent to 28-140mm on most 35mm camera so you have both the wide and telephoto option at your fingertips for a wide variety of general shooting conditions. There are plenty of shooting modes to use including a Portrait Enhancer that's designed to smooth skin tones, along with a fireworks mode.
