The Fujifilm FinePix Z5fd is an ultracompact digital camera with style, one that brings some unique features to the table.
Including fast face detection that works before and after capture, intelligent flash that considers focus distance, and natural light shooting with a flash backup, the Fuji Z5fd has just what you need from a small, take-everywhere snapshooter. And it looks good at a party. Even better, the Fuji Z5fd is a lot of fun to shoot with. Part of the fun is that those unique features are not just useful, but easy to use; and the sliding lens cover makes powering the Fujifilm Z5fd on as easy as turning it off, protecting it well enough to slide back into a pocket or bag.
The Fuji Z5 has the usual problems of chromatic aberration at wide angle, as well as trouble at high ISO, but those are standard fare with a camera of this size. Overall, the lens test results for the Fuji Z5fd are quite good, as are the printed results. See the review for more on the Fuji Z5fd, a small digital camera with poise and presence.
