What Digital Camera
2 August 2007
  • Summary: The Fuji FinePix F40fd looks good and takes good pictures, but the lack of manual control makes it a touch expensive for an 8MP ‘point-and-shooter’.
  • Pros: Takes xD or SD media, great exposures, white balance.
  • Cons: No manual shooting modes, easy to change mode accidentally.

Fujifilm FinePix F40fd

CNET
18 July 2007
  • Summary: The F40fd is user-friendly and super-quick. Face detection is patchy but useful, while image stabilisation works well thanks to the camera's strong automatic capability. Dual-card format, customisable favourite modes and lots of presets make this an accessible and clever compact
  • Pros: Lightning-fast shutter response; lots of settings; clear interface.
  • Cons: Some counter-intuitive buttons; image stabilisation isn't mechanical or optical.

  • Cons: No optical or mechanical image stabilization; slightly sluggish performance; no aperture-priority or shutter-priority modes.

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix F40fd delivers quality shots and good performance, but it's not the best point-and-shoot available for the price.

  • Excerpt: The FinePix F40fd ($299) is a compact, stylish camera that replaces the FinePix F20, which served as the "little brother" to the highly-rated FinePix F30. The beauty of these cameras isn't really their design, lens, or feature set.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, with less noise than competition at high ISOs (though see issues below), Small, stylish, and well built, Gorgeous 2.5" LCD display has high resolution and fluid frame rate; good indoor/outdoor visibility, AF-assist lamp, good low light focusing, Dual xD/SD memory card slo...
  • Cons: Fair amount of noise reduction artifacting, even at ISO 100, Some operations are slower than average (shot-to-shot times, image playback), Disappointing continuous shooting modes, Custom white balance not previewed on LCD, More manual controls would be nice, No optical viewfinder, IrSimple featur...

  • Summary: The Fuji Finepix F40fd is an excellent ultra-compact digital camera with great image quality and speed of operation. The only reason the Fuji F40 does not generate more excitement is the existence of the Fuji Finepix F30 and F31fd.
  • Pros: Very low image noise, Nicely saturated colors, Good automatic white-balance, Good exposure accuracy, Excellent lens sharpness, Plenty of details, Above average battery life
  • Cons: Slow shot-to-shoot speed, ISO 2000 not selectable, Above average purple fringing, Poorly placed tripod-mout, Too few zoom steps

Digicam Review
23 January 2008
  • Summary: : The Fujifim F40fd is an impressive compact 8 megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens and a large 2.5" display. The camera improves on the FinePix F30, by adding an 8 megapixel sensor, a new mode dial, a new zoom ring, and face detection focus.
  • Pros: Large, sharp screen shows the resulting photos with excellent clarity., Fast and responsive - high speed mode also available., Plenty of options to suit 'artistic' photography - plenty of scene positions to help ordinary people take better photos., Excellent quality images - very good colour, Uni...
  • Cons: AUTO modes use higher than necessary ISO setting with flash causing over-exposed flash subjects (much better results are available with a manually selected ISO setting), Lacks the Manual mode available with the Fujifilm FinePix F30 and F30fd., Switching to SD memory cards doesn't seem to have bro...

Fujifilm Finepix F40fd review

Digital Arts
16 August 2007
  • Excerpt: As most creatives know a camera’s megapixel size is only one factor in determining the quality of a captured image. Finepix’s new F40fd 8.3mp camera produces better photos than some 10mp models we’ve looked at – with Fujifilm concentrating on the quality of what’s captured, not its quantity.
  • Pros: Comfortable design. Excellent full auto mode with many functions for quick snapping, including face detection and Natural & Flash mode.
  • Cons: Few manual controls. Face detection baffled by glasses.
