Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix Z10fd enters the ultra-compact market in a unique position, offering an aggressively styled super-thin camera at a lower price than most competitive devices. A slightly stripped point-and-shoot model, the Z10 is a definite winner in terms of ease of use and convenience. And assuming you're not put off by its less-than-stellar all-plastic construction, the FinePix also has the visual style to compete in the ultra-compact arena.
Summary: The Fujifilm Z10fd is a party animal. It takes great pictures in difficult situations where other cameras could struggle. The build quality is second to none, and even the sliding front panel has a nice feel as it clicks into place. The lens placement is a bit of a problem for us, and we’re sure more than a few photos will be ruined by a large pink finger creeping into the top-left corner. But that’s the only thing wrong with this impressive camera.
Conclusion: Well for me a good looking, fun camera is let down by picture quality. If picture quality is not the be all and end all then the Fuji Finepix Z10 fd could be of interest to you. This is especially true if you are looking for a camera that is easy to use.
Pros: Ease of use - choice of colours - large internal memory
Summary: While the FujiFilm FinePix Z10fd is a smooth and simple looking camera, its pictures are less than impressive. If you merely want a happy snap camera for the occasional 4x6in print then maybe this model will suit you, but there are equally intuitive units on the market that capture much better snaps.
Pros: Stylish design, speedy operation, simple to use
Cons: Chromatic aberration issues, colours are inaccurate, some noise problems
Excerpt: The ultra-compact Z10fd is the cheeky little brother to the suave and sophisticated Z100fd. Both are available in a range of colours, but the choice of black, blue, green, olive, red, orange and pink and the curvy design give the Z10fd an air of youthful exuberance rather than luxury. The specifications are more modest, with a 7-megapixel sensor, 3x zoom and run-of-the-mill 2in, 150,000-pixel screen, but none of these figures should put casual photographers off.
