Fuji Finepix F40fd

Editor's Review

The Fuji Finepix F40fd features an extremely high ISO threshold of 2000 and a large, 8.3 megapixel sensor. Consumers should be warned that such a high ISO setting may result in severe image noise. The F40fd can also shoot at full resolution in this mode. The camera also features a unique dual-storage opportunity, with both xD-Picture Card and Secure Digital slots, surely in an attempt to gradually move Fuji users over to the new format without making their old cards completely useless.

Dust dust dust (Don — 04/22/2009)

Suddenly dust has appeared inside the lens and shows up on the final pictures. The camera is basically useless and repairs will cost close to the cost of a replacement. So, I'm going to buy a set of fuji tools and take the little sucker apart and see if I can't chase away the mysterious shadows.

Decent performance but major lens flaw (Elliot Bridgewater — 01/29/2009)

The performance of the images are decent for the price of the camera, but dust can get within the lens and can't be repaired without paying MORE than the camera is worth. Be warned!

Faulty Lens protection (Glenn Smith — 10/04/2007)

In less than 3 months dust particles got in between the out side lens and inside lens. I could no longer take shots of anything with a light background without dark spots showing up. I also had problems with the focus both close and far away, No picture was crisp and clear. Guess what? Can't be cleaned and no warranty on this "inherently faulty lens". They would have to replace the whole lens assembly. They wanted $225.00 to repair it. Don't buy one of these cameras.

Perfect for family snapshots (Christian — 07/21/2007)

This camera makes snapshots just as easy as switch on, point, shoot, and have another magic moment captured without flash.

For me this is one of the best snapshot cameras available. Small, light, fast, and produces wonderful photos even in extremely difficult situation. I haven't seen any consumer camera of another vendor than Fuji making such good available light photos as the F40fd. At ISO 800 and above there is noise in the photos, but the amount is astonishing low, consists only of luminosity noise. NO color noise at all!!!!

This camera is ideal for parents. No situation lost due to low light, waiting for the flash or spoiled by the flash itself.

great camera for even the most inexperienced photographer (sjenkins — 06/30/2007)

I tried a number of cameras: Canon SD1000, A630, SD600,Casio ex z1050. Then, the F40FD... SD card and the fact it is a Fuji. Work with the camera and you will see it is a great one. Even a Prof.Photographer at my granddaughter's birthday party said it was awesome.
Sure some of the pics will be "off" , but, I learned from my mistakes, and then I decided to read the manual..funny how reading about the camera helps a lot.
The only thing about it is the shutter time..could be faster

Fuji F40fd disappoints (John Hutton — 06/25/2007)

Having read great reviews on some of last year's Fuji F-series models (F30, F31fd and F20), I was optimistic that this Fuji would have the same great low light performance and image quality as its predecessors. Not so. I am extremely disappointed with this camera. The pictures come out grainy at ALL ISO levels, and get worse as you increase the ISO level. The pictures also lack sharpness. I have tried all settings, and have yet to get a decent photo from this camera. It is much worse than the 3 year old Canon S400 Powershot that I have. By increasing megapixels, Fuji has drastically decreased the image quality of its camera. Not recommended.
