Fuji Finepix F40fd

29 September 2011
  • 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. Other than these two models, the F40fd surpasses all ultra-compact digital cameras in terms of image quality. Its image quality even surpasses that of higher end cameras such as the just-reviewed Sony Cybershot DSC-H9.
  • 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

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix F40fd delivers quality shots and good performance, but it's not the best point-and-shoot available for the price.
  • Pros: Facial-recognition technology. No shutter lag. Good video quality. SD card support.
  • Cons: Sluggish (continuous) burst mode. Some purple fringing in test shots. Can't adjust flash illumination.

  • Summary: However, unlike those two cameras, the F40’s may be used in playback mode as well—you can use it to take a quick look at up to 10 faces in a picture to make sure no one has their eyes closed or is sticking out their tongue. Of the three cameras tested here, the F40 has the most solid-feeling construction. And the 2.5-inch LCD was the nicest, too. And, the F40 also lets you use both SD and xD memory cards.
  • Pros: Solid construction; 2.5-inch LCD; takes SD and xD memory cards.
  • Cons: Sluggish shot-to-shot performance; no image stabilization.

Fujifilm Finepix F40fd Review

Digital Camera Review
7 August 2007
  • Excerpt: Teddy Roosevelt is credited with saying "Speak softly and carry a big stick". For the Fujifilm Finepix F40fd , an otherwise relatively unassuming mix of features is augmented by the "big stick" of Fujifilm’s "F" series cameras: a reputation for class-leading ISO performance attributed, at least in part, to their Super CCD sensors.

  • 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. Rather, it's their unique SuperCCD HR sensor with its hexagonal photo sites, which delivers much better high ISO performance than cameras that use regular CCDs.
  • 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 slot, Powerful flash, very little redeye, Face detection feature works fairly well; can also be used in playback mode (where it is more useful, IMHO), VGA movie mode, Above avera...
  • 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 feature not terribly useful (how about Bluetooth instead?), Plastic tripod mount

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. The camera is one of very few to include usable high ISO modes of ISO 1600 and ISO 2000, and noticably less noise than the competition at all ISO settings upto ISO 800 (The only other cameras offering similar...
  • 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, Uniquely low noise and good detail even at ISO800, Good battery life (rated at 300+ shots), 'Immediate zoom' mode help check sharpness and exposure straight after taking the phot...
  • 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 brought the speed improvements expected (The F20 with XD memory card seemed quicker)., Purple fringing is quite high, Highest ISO setting (ISO2000) isn't necessarily useful., In ...

  • Summary: A strong compact camera from Fujifilm, the high levels of chromatic aberration is the only issue detracting from the F40fd's exceptional pictures. Unfortunately there are a few minor issues in other areas that stop this from being a truly incredible camera.
  • Pros: Brilliantly sharp pictures, superb colour reproduction
  • Cons: Some chromatic aberration issues, function wheel poorly positioned, disappointing burst mode
