Summary: I finally received the notification from this company after few days and this was because I wrote to customer service asking why I did not receive any confirmation. It's like you paid for nothing! Fourtunately, I still got this item after extra 6 days. There's nothing wrong with this item so I may give them 3 stars and strongly recommend others to actively track your order.
Summary: First off I should state that I do not own this camera. I've been using my friend's F50fd against my own F31fd. He picked up the F50fd simply because he enjoyed how my camera worked. It uses Fuji's typical interface: Simple but a bit clunky. After you've used it a bit you'll find it quite easy to configure to your liking. Of course changing modes to adapt to new conditions quickly is another story altogether. Overall I'm torn between the handling of this and the F31.
Decent Camera but does not live up to Fuji's reputation

Summary: I am a big fuji-o-phile. I have taken this camera out 2 or 3 times and I own several of their f series cameras (f10 and f30 and of course the f50). My feeling is this camera is below average in its performance when compared to other cameras of its class. The stabilization is *great* and the face detection is first rate, but the f series has become known for its performance and this camera does not meet THOSE expectations which is what most of the reviewers are...
Summary: The reason I get this camera is the 1/1.6 Super CCD is suposed to be better than 1/1.8 CCD in Canon G7. HoweverI got my Fujifilm F50fd yesterday, after 10 mins, I already decided to return it. 1)At all the auto mode except M and A/S,iso setting can't be changed. noise level is horrible. trust me, my computer Screen is a 1600x1200 LCD, so any picutre with defect I see it immediately.
Summary: The legendary Fuji Finepix F31fd made huge waves in compact/ultra compact digital camera market since it was announced. It got 5 stars rating on all reputable DP review web sites: DPreview.com, DCRP.com, Cnet, consumersearch.com, digitalcamerainfo.com, digitalphotographyblog, you name it. Today, it costs you $590 to $730 for a new/used one if you still can find it on Amazon or eBay. I have been waiting for its successor, F50fd.
Summary: Fuji, like other camera manufacturers seem to bring out new models about 2-3 times a year each one with more features, more mega pixels and more little tweaks than the next that its hard to see where it will all stop! I had a Fuji f31fd which I bought in summer of 2007 when it was just out and now its already been overtaken by the F40 and the f50 and now the all new F100.
Summary: La compré pensando en esos (tantos) momentos donde no llevo o no pienso llevar la reflex (Sigma SD14) y pensando, especialmente, en reuniones y eventos con poca luz. La he conseguido por 170 euros incluyendo funda de piel y una tarjeta sd de dos gigas con pegatina de Fuji pero cutre y lenta.
Summary: Meine Canon A80 war leider zu klobig für kleine Taschen und daher sollte eine trendige kleine Kamera her. Ich habe mir wirklich sehr gut informiert und das Resultat war, dass es momentan kaum kleine Kameras mit wirklich guten (Foto)Ergebnissen gibt. Aber die F50fd stellte einen Kompromiss dar. Mich stört an der Kamera das extreme Rauschen der Bilder und dass diese zudem oftmals zu dunkel geraten.
Excerpt: Аппарат ужасно разочаровал, вплоть до того, что всего после двух месяцев эксплуатации уже однозначно решено, что надо искать ему замену.
Pros: Компактный, легкий
Cons: Очень чувствителен к освещенности - на ярком солнце ему слишком светло, в темное время суток также мало что получается, т.к. вспышка очень слабенькая. Колоссальное энергопотребление (даже при отключенной вспышке)
