  • Excerpt: Camera Review: FujiFilm FinePix F31FD15725837FujiFilmF31FDWhen you go to school to learn the craft of journalism, one of the first things you're taught is to not take anything that you write or photograph at face value. I can still see my professor saying "Look deeper, Mark... What is it that you really see?" I reminded myself about this fact after opening the box that the Fujifilm Finepix F31FD (Street $399) came in.

DP Review
17 July 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. The good news is that Fuji hasn't done anything to significantly affect the class-leading high ISO performance or astounding resolution, and it appears to have tweaked the processing to produce more natural, pleasing results in...
  • 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 processing, Superb build and handling, Good flash performance, Decent movie mode, Fast, reliable focus, AF illuminator, Large clear screen, Aperture and Shutter Priority and lots o...
  • 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 mode, 3-shot limit in continuous mode, Slow card writing (xD-Picture Card issue), Screen can be hard to see in very bright light and can get laggy in very low light, User interfa...

  • 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 point-and-shoot digital cameras.
  • 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

  • Excerpt: If there's a faster way to boost sales of average cameras than to give them a gleaming metal housing and shave a few millimetres from their waistlines, we haven't heard about it. So it's with a certain degree of trepidation that we approach yet another slim, shiny snapper at an apparently reasonable price-point.

  • 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. I have a Canon EOS 350D, but wanted a camera I could put in my pocket - but wanted great results!

  • Summary: 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 Detection is the main addition, making it easier for the beginner to achieve better portrait shots. It works well in the right situations and is also quick, something that other competitors system's struggle with.
