Fuji's latest combines good looks with low noise

Fujifilm continues to demonstrate that it is the only manufacturer that has successfully addressed the issue of image noise. The Finepix F40fd is an attractively designed, extremely well made camera with a good range of features and outstanding image...

Fujifilm FinePix F40fd digital camera

 

The F40fd, here in its gunmetal grey metal-bodied guise, is a stylish high-tech compact that offers a tempting level of specification and performance at a good price. The new model has a boosted resolution over the 6.3-megapixel F30/F31fd siblings with...

Great metal build, compact, fast operation, good image quality, low noise up to ISO 800, simple to use, power management

No optical viewfinder, detail loss at highest ISO 2000 settings from noise reduction processing, no manual control (manual mode is actually a simple Program AE mode)

The extra resolution offered on the F40fd might make it a better marketing proposition but means there are a few extra niggles in terms of noise over it’s lower resolution Fuji counterparts and with some slight shadow noise issues when viewed closely...

Fujifilm FinePix F40fd review

 

We first reviewed the F40fd in What's New, Shopper July 2007, where it picked up a Best Buy award for its fantastic image quality and well-conceived controls. We decided to see how it fares against the current crop of premium compact cameras.

A versatile and efficient compact

The occasional confusing design feature aside, the F31fd is intuitive, has some great features, and produces decent images in most situations, particularly low light

Fujifilm Finepix F40fd

 

Finepix's new F40fd 8.3mp camera produces better photos than some 10mp models we've looked at - with Fujifilm concentrating on the quality of what's captured, not its quantity.

Comfortable design. Excellent full auto mode with many functions for quick snapping, including face detection and Natural & Flash mode.

Few manual controls. Face detection baffled by glasses.

We were impressed by the F40fd's low-light performance, but less so by its slow start-up and shot-to-shot times, and its lack of true manual functions beyond exposure controls. Even so, it's a quick snapper worth investigating

Fujifilm - Finepix F40fd

 

Fujifilm's F-series is arguably the most successful line of compact cameras around, in no small part down to consistent performance and solid build quality across the range. The 8.3-megapixel F40fd is currently available at prices close ...

Fuji's F40fd offers excellent results at a reasonable price, and would be a good choice for the amateur looking for a slightly more versatile camera without breaking the bank.

Fujifilm Finepix F40 fd

 

Back in the day, if a new technology was released then the camera with the technology fitted would cost an arm, a leg, a spleen and several feet of small intestine. So why is face detection available in a camera costing £175? Not that we're complaining.

Face detection technology; Easy to use features; Natural & Flash setting allows to compare

Battery door opens too easily

The F40 is a very capable camera and lives up to the family name. I would like to see more simplistic names for features, but the camera is very easy to use, the features are well set out and the camera is not uncomfortable to use. I did find that as I...
