"Fujifilm FinePix F40d - great compact camera for any occassion."

This Fujifilm F40d digital camera is, in my opinion, a great choice of camera for any occassion. It is compact, light, looks great, has a large LCD screen, 8.3 megapixels and has face-detection technology.

I used this camera for a three week holiday to South Africa and only had to charge it twice. It stood up to a full day of photo taking on safari, and with a good zoom function, was able to capture some great shots.

Back home, it has been taken on many a night out and has always produced good photos from my point of view. It has also withstood the usual wear and tear well.

With different settings that include portrait, landscape, sunset, fireworks, flower, snow, sport and night, it has always produced good quality photographs.

All in all, I found it to be a great camera for my level of usage. It has been robust, but at the same time lightweight, all while producing some great every day and holiday snaps - an excellent point and shoot camera.

Product Information : Fujifilm FinePix F40fd

Manufacturer's product description

The FinePix F40fd features stunning, slim-line design, 8.3 megapixel high-performance Fujifilm Super CCD sensor, 3x optical zoom lens and an easy-to-view 2.5-inch LCD monitor. The FinePix F40fd also features low-light performance of ISO 2000 at full resolution and Fujifilm's unique Intelligent Flash system, which enables users to capture natural looking images without the 'washed out' effect that can be the result of traditional on-camera flash. Fujifilm's hardware-based Face Detection technology captures up to ten faces in a frame in as little as 0.05 seconds, optimizing focus and exposure to take the best portrait shots. Face Detection sets imagination free to compose photos without the need to manually set the camera to get the best photo; a simple push of the shutter button is all that is required. In playback mode, Face Detection can be used to maintain faces as the key focus of a photo when cropping or zooming in.
