Though we expect a lot of noise from a 12-megapixel point and shoot digital camera, we were impressed enough with the Fujifilm F50fd's printed output to give it a strong rating.
Features were also admirable, with the FinePix F50fd's Face Detection 2.0 able to crop portraits out of a group picture as a unique skill, and the Natural Light and Flash mode is a smart hedge against a post-snapshot letdown. The FinePix F50fd's 35-105mm equivalent zoom lens's high quality shows with little distortion and a good focus across the range, and its f/2.8 maximum aperture at wide angle gathers some impressive light for such a small digital camera.
Sensor-shift image stabilization helps keep things steady in low light at slower shutter speeds, or when out in daylight using the zoom. Indoors, as with all small point and shoots, you're going to need to get close to your subject for flash shots, but you should also try the natural light mode to see just what the Fujifilm F50fd can do. Out in daylight, expect to be amazed at the detail you can capture with the FinePix F50fd at low ISO.
The Fujifilm FinePix F50fd is a good performer, and is great as a pocket travel or everywhere digital camera. Click here to read our Fujifilm F50fd review for more.
