Fuji Finepix F40fd

neocamera.com
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

  • Excerpt: If you are all about achieving the highest possible image quality (even at the expense  of other features), Fuji’s F40fd is the camera in this roundup for you. Images were noticeably sharper and slightly more vivid—with less noise at high ISO speeds—than those produced by the other cameras reviewed here. You can expect to get nice 5x7 prints at 800 ISO.
  • Pros: Solid construction; 2.5-inch LCD; takes SD and xD memory cards.
  • Cons: Sluggish shot-to-shot performance; no image stabilization.

  • 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

  • Summary: The Fujifilm Finepix F40fd undoubtedly offers a number of significant improvements to what was a great camera, the F20, which we gave a Highly Recommended award one year ago. There's an increase from 6 to 8 megapixels, new Face Detection feature for better people shots, more stylish design and the much improved zoom lever and mode dial.

Fujifilm Finepix F40fd review

Digital Arts
20 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.

  • Excerpt: Digital SLRs are great for all-round picture quality, but they're bulky and difficult to carry around with you everywhere. So it's always handy to have a quality pocket digital camera to keep with you all the time. Canon's Digital Ixus range is viewed by many as the benchmark for pocket cameras, and have been our models of choice on many previous occasions. We've also been impressed with the super-fast operation and colour of snaps from Fujifilm's compacts.
