The TIPA and DIMA award-winning FinePix F30 set the standard for low light photography. The FinePix F50fd builds on this heritage with a larger than average 1/1.6 inch 12 megapixel Seventh Generation Super CCD HR sensor and Real Photo Processor II. Together these allow ultra high-resolution capture with breathtaking detail, even at high ISO settings.

The newly developed sensor design features several key improvements that increase the efficiency with which each pixel gathers light, and an enhanced two-stage noise reduction system ensures that noise is kept to a minimum without valuable detail being lost.

Despite doubling the number of pixels, the new sensor offers similar performance to the groundbreaking FinePix F30 and F31fd at sensitivity settings up to ISO 3200. For shooting in the very lowest light without compromising image quality, the FinePix F50fd offers sensitivity modes of up to ISO 6400 at lower resolutions.

Cheaper at Amazon by £2ish here: amazon.co.uk/exe…sim

Sorry! :P

Edit: Even better would be to get a factory refurb from the FujiFilm UK website at £102 delivered: secure.fujifilm.co.uk/sho…915

Edit Edit: Also, the Finepix F45fd (Same as the F40fd) is a much better camera, thanks to the fact that it uses the same size Super CCD, yet at 8MP, allows more spare per photo sonsor, which means higher dynamic range and better pictures at high ISO, high MP ratings are only part of the story.

Oh, and it can be bought for £76 delivered via Fujifilm (refurb again, but hey): secure.fujifilm.co.uk/sho…915

Piccie? I'll got to the link for now...

Hmm, this looks like it could be a decent deal!

Some of the serious sites object to the megapixel race and liked the previous versions of the F50fd. They say it still beats the competitors, but by a smaller margin thanks to the largely pointless addition of extra resolution.

Warm...Due to the fact that the F40fd is a better camera and cheaper.

Warning note - Item 30 - Play.com Terms & Conditions.

All electrical products are covered by a twelve month manufacturer's warranty. If your product develops a fault while under warranty, please contact Play.com and we will advise you where to send it for repair. It is a "return to base" warranty therefore there will be a delivery charge to return the product back to the relevant UK service centre.

Many other retailers have a policy to offer repair / replacement of items under the 12 month guarantee (including return postage) and therefore offer a better service.

With alot of cameras, you can contact the maufacturer and they'll send you a jiffy bag and postage and you send it off yourself. It's exactly the same as you sending it to Play.com or taking it into Currys and them phoning Fuji to pick it up, just its done at home.

Cant vote hot, as this is a similar price in loads of places - including Tesco.

Good camera though.

Basically what this poster is saying is that more Megapixels are not necessarily better. To get more in you have to make individual pixel sensors smaller which increases issues with the overall image (you get what's called noise, funny blobs of colour where there shouldn't be).

It's not a fuji issue, but a market issue, the consumer has fixed on MP as a measure of a camera's worth and therefore drives increases in resolution at the cost of overall image quality...

The F50's direct predecessor was one of the few camera's which stuck 2 fingers up at this trend and gave photographers what they needed not what they wanted...
