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.
Excerpt: The F31fd is an update to the excellent F30, which we reviewed in What's New: Photography, Shopper November 2006. Externally, it's only subtly different, with a restyled grip at the front separating the two. Internally, there's not much difference either. The internal memory has increased from 10MB to 26MB, but image quality and most features appear identical.
