a great beginner camera to learn features of more expensive cameras
4 June 2012
Summary: I find this camera really easy to adjust to, and a great beginner camera to learn features of more expensive cameras. I am shocked by the quality, though it can vary. The only thing i wish it had was longer continous shooting at 12 MP, as well as maybe panoramic shots...
Summary: This sweet little camera replaced one I damaged by putting too much pressure (unknowingly) on the back screen. I was so heartbroken, I sourced the same camera to replace it, and was able to recover my photos, which I couldn't get via cable on the old camera or directly off the SD chip. The feature I use this for most is to take pictures of meals - the macro button is extremely easy and convenient to use, and the pictures come out well.
Summary: I was preparing for a trip to Peru, and needed my first digital camera for my first trip out of the country. Because my room is very sparse, I was hoping to be able to decorate with some very large pictures. In fact, the only thing I cared about was the ability break a picture down into many smaller pieces, print each of them out, and to print each out so that they could be combined into very large pictures of high quality. In this, the camera worked perfectly!
One serious negative for an otherwise great little camera...

Summary: I received this camera in the mail today (fantastic quick shipping BTW) and immediately charged and use it. The Fujufilm Finepix F50fd takes excellent pictures. Focus, image detail, color depth/accuracy, and egonomics are excellent. HOWEVER, whoever decided on the battery and charging method for this camera hasn't ever actually used a personal digital camera. The battery is sorely small for this camera and doesn't last more than 100 or so pictures at max detail.
Summary: After considering Canon, Sony, Nikon I purchased the F50fd because of it's larger sensor and low light capabilities. I have not been disappointed. When used side by side with a Canon SD600 the Fuji performs much better in low light. The best results seem to be obtained when using it at 6MP resolution rather than 12 MP in low light. In normal light all resolutions are sharp. The flash could be better but it is comparable to other Ultra-Compact cameras.
Summary: I was very excited when I got my camera, as I had previously owned a Fuji F30 (which was stolen... lucky thief!) I thought as the latest camera and with 12MP and improved face detection etc., it should be fantastic... To be honest, I had read all the reviews and still decided to buy the camera.
Summary: I am an amateur enthusiast who owns an Olympus 7070, 8080 and Sony R1. I purchased this little camera for my parents who wanted to have a small, pocket-sized camera with image stabilization. I picked the Fuji F50 because it seemed to fit the description... however, I was in for a surprise when I received it! First of all, I think that this is a beautiful camera. It is very well-built and the design is gorgeous. Very nice indeed.
