Built in Obsolescence

  • Summary: This is my second Fuji Camera. I had a Fuji-F10 and a Fuji-F40 FD Both eventually failed with the same problem. Lines across the photo caused by failed CCD Sensors. Judging by the web this is a common problem with Fuji but not mentioned at all as a problem on the support websites. For me the Fuji-F40 also developed a faulty zoom lens. In the 18 months I had the camera 6 of that was spent in repair. Camera's should at least be made to last 3 to 4 years.

Poor build quality and rubbish customer service

  • Summary: This is a camera and manufacturer to avoid. Initially I was very pleased with it but desite keeping it in a case the coating on th ecamera body quickly started to wear off making it look shoody. After 6 months of light use the autofocus packed up and Fujifilm inist on £89 to repair it!! Buy from a different manufacturer, there are plenty of better ones to choose from.

Very, Very Poor

  • Summary: I am extremely disappointed with my F40fd. I bought it via Amazon from PurelyGadgets, and it has spent more time with them than it has with me. The on/off switch failed after a few weeks and took months to repair. When the camera came back it lasted a week before both the autofocus and the lens motor both failed.

Oh dear... what a terrible camera!

  • Summary: I'm a keen diver and when I accidently flooded my old Sony Cybershot following an early morning start a few weeks back it was time to get a new camera. I was very happy with the old Cybershot but for the lack of a manual white balance, which is very useful for underwater photography. Alas, none of the current line up of Sony cameras have this feature so I was looking for something else.

apsaraa, Ciao

  • Summary: Je n'ai jamais pu tester cet appareil acheté en août 2007 car 15 jours après il tombait en panne : décollement du bouton déclencheur sans raison apparente. Fuji dénonce la garantie au motif d'une mauvaise utilisation. Zéro pointé pour le service après vente. 250 euros jetés par la fenêtre. A bon entendeur salut !

100 Fotos- 99 davon für den Papierkorb

  • Summary: Unter allen Umständen starkes Helligkeitsrauschen. Ob im Automatikmodus oder manuell mit diversen Variationen. Auch mit aktueller Firmware keine Verbesserung. Da hat meine alte Panasonic TZ 1 noch bessere Fotos gemacht.Und die war nur unter günstigster Belichtung gut. In Teilbereichen saufen die Details der F40 ab, als wenn sie mit Tusche gezeichnet sind. Allenfalls als Schnappschusskamera zu gebrauchen.

Richtig schlecht!

  • Summary: Enttäuschend!!! Ich war auf der Suche nach einer kompakten Kamera die meine in die Tage gekommene Fuji A204 (2,1 Megapixel!) ersetzen sollte. Da ich eine DSLR Minolta 7d besitze, sollte die F40fd nur eine "immer dabei" Kamera für Schnapschüsse sein. Leider kann die F40fd selbst diese geringen Ansprüche nicht erfüllen. -Sie liegt unabhängig von den Lichtverhältnissen mit dem Autofokus oft daneben und macht unscharfe Bilder.
