  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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 review

Digital Arts
19 October 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.

  • 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
