Summary: The F60fd is a well-made, attractively styled camera with good handling and some useful features, but the limited zoom range is a handicap. Low light focusing is outstanding, but it lacks the high-ISO quality of its predecessors.
Summary: Fujifilm’s FinePix F60fd is a good, solid performer with some neat features which allow it to stand out from the crowd. Impressively it’s one of the few compacts at any price point with full Aperture and Shutter Priority.
Pros: Control over aperture and shutter., Sensible approach to people shots., Great face detection., Auto Scene recognition.
Cons: Lacking true wide angle coverage., Stabilisation not as good as rivals., Screen bettered by top rivals., Minor benefit to 12 Mpixels over 10.
Summary: If a camera can detect faces in your shots, then why shouldn't it find flowers and mountains too? The 12Mp Fujifilm FinePix F60fd adds automatic scene recognition to the face-detection abilities of its predecessor, the Finepix F50fd.
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix F60fd has been one of the lighter updates to a previous model we’ve seen in this pre-Photokina build-up season, but if you were foolish enough to dismiss the F60fd just because it can’t claim as many “all new” features as some of its competition, you’d potentially be making an...
Pros: Still the high-ISO leader among small cameras, High-end build and styling with a moderate price, Excellent SR Auto, face detection technologies, Aperture/shutter priority modes
Cons: Have to trade battery life for best LCD performance, Auto white balance off indoors, Short zoom range a limiting factor
Conclusion: The Fuji Finepix F60fd offers a good quality alternative to other, perhaps better known brands such as Canon and Sony. I found it hard to find fault with this camera and I have enjoyed using it.
Pros: Colours - detail in photos - shutter lag speeds

Summary: The FujiFilm Finepix F60fd is a decent compact digital camera let down by its high noise levels and unwieldy menu layout. Despite these faults, it remains a reasonable option for beginners thanks to its superb auto modes.
Pros: Reliable SR Auto and face detection modes, attractive and compact design, ISO 6400
Cons: High noise levels, unintuitive user interface
Excerpt: The FinePix F60fd shares the same design as the ageing F50fd, with what Fujifilm terms an‘˜Aero curve' design and finished in a matt black to give a perceived high-end look. Like the F50fd, the F60fd has a resolution of 12Mp - probably about the upper limit for a sensor of this physical size.
Excerpt: If you like your ultra compacts small, sturdy and light, we've got a nifty little camera that's right up your alley. I'm talking about the Fujifilm FinePix F60fd – Fujifilm's ultra compact that's both tiny (92.5 x 59.2 x 22.9 mm) and weighing in at just 155 grams, pretty light as well.
