DP Review
18 August 2007
  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: 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 (over F30) and slightly more subtle proce...
  • Cons: 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 focus as close without switching to macro mod...

  • Conclusion: Conclusion What the F31fd does well, it does very well. Any failings the camera has are either minimal or standard among comparable cameras. Face Detection sets the Fujifilm F31fd apart and makes it a leading contender for children and group photos that are usually a challenge for most...
  • Pros: 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 transfer, Voice memos
  • Cons: 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

Fujifilm FinePix F31fd Review

Digitaltrends
4 April 2007
  • Conclusion: This is a good not great 6.3-megapixel digicam. Although it has a lot going for it, it really didn’t ring the bell for me. There were issues with sharpness, some focusing problems and the camera labored saving big files.
  • Pros: 6.3MP; 3x optical zoom with Face Detection
  • Cons: No optical image stabilization

Fujifilm FinePix F31fd Review

What Digital Camera
5 March 2007
  • Summary: Face Detection marks the only real difference between the F31fd and the existing F30, and it’s debatable how useful this is. The F31fd is pretty good, but doesn’t set the world on fire.
  • Pros: Fast AF and zoom action, great image quality up to ISO 400.
  • Cons: Bland looks, boring zoom range.

  • Summary: Don't fall for the megapixels arms race: 6.3MP is fine for even sizable enlargements and you gain far more in usable high-sensitivity shooting than you'll ever lose in raw resolution. This is a fantastic second camera for evening and snap shooting.

Cameras
16 April 2007
  • Conclusion: I'm a big fan of the Fuji Finepix F31fd. If you are looking for a digital camera with a bit of style that takes a good photo then this one is worth a close look. It has one or two extra features that come in handy, especially in lowlight.
  • Pros: Picture sharpness, Lowlight photography, Extra features, Battery life
  • Cons: Purple fringing
