Fujifilm FinePix F100fd Digital Camera - Silver (12.0MP, 5x Optical Zoom) 2.7" LCD £160.22 Delivered @ Amazon

Found 10th Jun 2008
I posted the black version of this the other day, which was cheaper at Dixons at the time. The prices have now dropped on Amazon for this camera making it cheaper than Dixons as P&P is free using super saver delivery.

Also available in black if that floats your boat, although its a little more than the silver one.

Great camera this, have one of these for our honeymoon to go with the Vivitar underwater one I posted before.


Manufacturer's Description

Dynamic range for digital cameras means the expression domain between the brightest and darkest areas. Fujifilm now takes you beyond ultra sensitivity and extends dynamic range for photos with more detail in both shadow and highlights. FinePix Wide Dynamic Range gives you the ability to explore extreme scenes and capture all the nuances of brightness and tonality. Skies and seas are expressed with a palette of vivid blues. Previously unseen details in the shadows emerge. It's time to get real with the FinePix F100fd.

Product Description

Fujifilm has launched the most accomplished model in its range yet: the FinePix F100fd, a digital camera designed with wide angle photography in mind. The FinePix F100fd benefits from an increased dynamic range thanks to its 28 mm wide-angle optical zoom and its 12-megapixel CCD sensor. Images are always of the best quality, because the F100fd incorporates an RP II processor to enhance colour and details. The F100fd also has a wide array of exposure and automatic white balance modes to choose from, which make it easy to adjust the cameras settings to your shooting conditions. Bright lighting, shade and overexposure are no longer a problem either, as the F100fd is filled with different advanced technologies, such as a face detection function, which emphasises your subjects smiles without altering the quality of the overall shot. With all these fantastic features on board, missing great shots is not an option with the FinePix F100fd!

# 2 million pixel Super CCD HR VII

This looks like a really good camera, if I was in the market for a P & S then this would be the one to get!

I just don't think it's personal enough to fit in my pocket...

Hmm...not great reviews: ]here

Great spec for a camera.

Alas, this model has a design fault which exhibits itself as a pinkish 'band' down the left side of the photo under certain low loght conditions, read all about it here (and see an example)...


the consensus is that they'll never fix/recall...but possibly correct it in later versions.

EDIT (it's actually an even better deal than it first appears): I've just decided to take a flier on this one - Amazon have a reasonable returns policy, so what the hell!

As an added bonus, they've got a promotion running & this camera is included 'Get a FREE Lowepro Ridge 20 Digital Camera Pouch' , which is worth about a tenner - therefore that takes the effective price down to about £155 (or £152.50 delivered for me as I had a £2.50 voucher from here!)

There is an updated firmware that is supposed to improve the problem of the pink band, reading up on the issue it doesnt bother me, but certianly worth checking out if takin the plunge.
