Summary: I've had this camera for quite a few years and still greatly dislike it. It's compact, but that's about all I can say. It's my fourth Fuji, and one of the worst. Don't even think about trying to take pics in a low-light situation, such as a graduation in an auditorium. I have missed more event photos due to the awful SLOW shutter and lousy, dark, grainy images. Yes, I have tried manually setting it, auto, and nighttime options.
Summary: I am so disappointed in this camera. The size/weight/and layout is great however it takes horrible pictures. It does an OK job outside, but every picture I take inside is grainy and hard to see. I certainly could never have any of these pics printed to a nice size to frame, I can barely post them on Facebook. I bought this camera for a trip to Disney because we had too much stuff to bring the big D-SLR but I really wish I would have purchased a different camera.
Summary: I briefly owned the F50fd and made the mistake of buying this one, both cameras are equally bad - good thing I was able to return it. I've previously owned many ELPHS (now SD950) and a few DSLR cameras. CONS Design -- the flash gets in the way, camera looks and feels cheap, interface is not intuitive or polished, uses proprietary USB cable IQ/AF -- Not great, noisy images at almost any ISO, camera is slow to AF and write Did not work with my Transcend 150X 4GB SD card --...
Summary: I have at various times owned the f10, f30, f31, f50 and now this f100...but not for long. As I'm sure you're all aware the f30/31 is more legend then camera. The f100fd suffers from a "pink banding" (google: f100 pink banding) issue in the left hand side of the image which makes the camera utterly useless. Its not clear if this is a design flaw or a problem with the first production run.

Summary: I have had three compact Fujis and have been very pleased with them. Not so with this one. The colours were distorted, especially in reduced lighting, such as inside a church. I returned the camera to Camera Box and after a very annoying two months was relieved to receive a refund. I would not deal with Camera Box again.
Summary: Hatte die Kamera spontan in Japan gekauft, da meine vorige (eine Panasonic Lumix irgendwas) bei einem Sturz das zeitliche segnete. Das gleiche Schicksal ereilte dann auch die F100fd im nächsten Urlaub. Vielleicht war das besser so. Ich machs kurz und zähl mal aus meiner Sicht positive und negative Dinge auf.
Summary: Derzeit nutze ich eine Sony W7, mit deren Ergebnis ich anhand gedruckter, entwickelter Fotos und auf dem Bildschirm deutlich mehr zufrieden bin. Aber vorab das positive: 1. Der Weitwinkel ist super 2. Verarbeitung und Eindruck sehr gut 3. Gesichtserkennung funktioniert sehr gut (wers braucht?) 4. Auslöseverzögerung ist OK 5. Fokussierung sehr gut, selbst bei kleinesten Motiven Negativ: 1. Im Automodus kann nur ISO 400 als Limit gesetzt werden.
