Fujifilm FinePix F50fd Review: A High-End yet Affordable Point-and-Shoot

Fujifilm FinePix F50fd
With good image quality, a useful and flexible set of features, plus a sturdy, ergonomically appealing design, this 12-megapixel camera is ideal for shooters who don’t need advance manual controls or a large zoom range.

The F50fd’s 3X zoom lens offers a 35mm-equivalent focal-length range of 35mm to 105mm, with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 on the wide end to f/5.1 zoomed in. In other words, the lens provides good but not spectacular low-light performance at wide-angle settings and has otherwise unremarkable specs.

With the high resolution of its Super CCD HR sensor, this camera maxed out our resolution test, capturing separate lines up to the 2,000-line limit. In both daylight and flash shots, standard test images showed realistic color. Exposures in the field were well balanced and colors-including skin tones across the spectrum-came out looking vibrant and natural.

The F50fd operated responsively, allowing me to capture candid shots and moving subjects easily. For portraits, the camera’s face- detection technology effectively tracked not only faces looking directly at the camera but also those in profile and at high and low angle.

The F50fd comes at a competitive price, and its combination of advanced tools and satisfying photographic results makes it easy to recommend.

Price range
Fujifilm FinePix F50fd: $299.95
