  • 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...

Fujifilm FinePix F31fd Review

Digitaltrends
4 April 2007
  • Excerpt: Face Detection is all the rage for 2007 digicams. Fujifilm can take credit for it since the company put the technology on the map late last year with the introduction of the FinePix S6000fd and F31fd. Although other companies tried it, Fujifilm refined Face Detection by incorporating the circuit in hardware rather than software. This made it more accurate and faster, per Fujifilm’s claims. Now everyone else has jumped on the bandwagon and is hyping the feature.
  • Pros: 6.3MP; 3x optical zoom with Face Detection
  • Cons: No optical image stabilization

  • 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!

Fujifilm FinePix F31

CNET
6 March 2007
  • Summary: Fujifilm F31fd保留原本F30大部分規格,畫素仍保留實在夠用的6百萬,而不追求無謂的高畫素虛榮,僅新增「臉部自動對焦」以及紅外線傳輸功能。擁有1/1.7吋的CCD對畫質有相當程度影響力,簡單的手動模式更豐富它的使用空間。
  • Pros: 有手動模式、CCD尺寸較大、ISO 800以內畫質不錯、效能稍微提升、CIPA張數多、臉部自動追焦功能、有紅外線傳輸
  • Cons: 機身稍嫌肥厚、預設白平衡偏黃
