    Fujifilm FinePix F50fd Compact Digital Camera


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    The Fujifilm FinePix F50fd is a camera that has some big shoes to fill. The success of its predecessor, the Fujifilm F31fd, has in a sense put a lot of pressure on the F50fd to exceed the standard set by the F31fd a year ago. Check out this review to find out if it did.

    The F31fd was a camera that dominated its class in terms of ISO performance and image quality, even though it only had a six megapixel sensor compared to double-digit sensors being offered by the competition.

    Today's consumers are much too focused on the number of megapixels a camera brings to bear. Many people believe that the more megapixels a camera offers, the better the camera is. This is entirely false. The fact is that in most cases you slow down a camera's performance when you add more megapixels to its sensor. Image quality is also affected in some cases.

    Fujifilm realized this, and they took it into consideration in the design of their compact digital cameras, such as the F30 and F31fd. It wasn't until the release of the F50fd that Fujifilm finally seemed to cave in to the "megapixel race" that other camera manufacturers had already begun years before.

    It seems that Fujifilm's marketing department exerted more of an influence on the creation of the F50fd than the design department did. Why else would Fujifilm go from a solid six megapixel camera all the way up to a 12 megapixel camera? The only answer to this question is that they wanted to keep the consumers happy, and it seems to have slightly affected the performance of the F50fd. The F50fd is by no means a sub-par compact camera, but it doesn't necessarily live up to the quality standards of the F31fd.

    The Fujifilm FinePix F50fd is a 12 megapixel, 3x optical zoom compact camera with a 35-105mm focal range, high ISO capabilities, a new image stabilization system, and new face detection technology. The F50fd certainly has some decent specs on paper, but the real test is the performance and image quality of this camera.
