An extra slimline design gives this camera a great feel in your hand,and the image stablizers and good face detection will easily outface some of the competitors versions hands down.

They also offer a great set of aperture and shutter priority controls that are a super new addition.

The Fuji is probably going to make many mid range camera bugs happy, and with the inclusion of the more than average exposure controls its probably going to even appeal to some of the more advanced photographers in the group who want that extra control at their fingertips.

Its price range, being between 190 and 290 USD is going to please those who are trying to get more camera for their buck, and the 12 megapixels and the 3x optical zoom aren't going to hurt a thing when it comes to drawing in new fans.

The camera is a bit sluggish between images and sometimes will offer you a little noise, even when set at the lower iso's, but even for a camera that doesn't include a full manual exposure, it's going to be a great addition to the photographers arsenal.

F50fd offers you a 12-megapixel Super CCD imaging sensor, 3x optical 35-to-105mm f/2.8-5.1 zoom lens, and 2.7-inch 230,000-pixel LCD.

Review Summary

The Fujifilm FinePix F50fd, successor to the FinePix F30/F31 fd models, is the newest addition to the well-known brand Fuji’s F-series. It is also one of the most highly anticipated compacts. As an ultra-compact camera, the FinePix F50fd will not disappoint its users. As usual, Fujifilm keeps improving the features of its camera with each and every release. With the Fujifilm FinePix F50fd, its attractive features like the 3x optical zoom 35-to-105mm f/2.8-5.1 zoom lens, 2.7 230,000-pixel LCD screen, the 12 megapixel super CCD imaging sensor and many more. The Fujifilm FinePix F50fd is basically made of some plastic parts so that it would not seem too heavy to carry. It is known to be quite responsive especially when it comes to its face detection system, enabling the camera to spot the face quickly and accurately. With its nice slim design, the Fujifilm FinePix F50fd also has aperture and shutter exposure manual controls though it does include exposure compensation, a night mode that has an exposure time of maximum 8 seconds and a much better face detection, can find a face even when it's in full profile, which means that it allows face detection from a wide variety of angles. Positive reviews are not only what the Fujifilm FinePix F50fd gathered, a certain user thinks that the camera can't even produce images at any ISO that aren't completely speckled. While others feel that the Fujifilm FinePix F50fd is a bit sluggish between shots and even at its lowest ISO, it shows minor noise. A few users dislike the fact that it doesn't include a full-manual exposure mode. The camera startup and functions work average as far as time is concerned. Despite that, ardent fans of Fujifilm cameras like this compact, classy-looking and stylish camera, especially as it can easily fit in a pocket.
