The F40fd is a great camera which is really easy to use, whilst taking high-quality photos. On top of its everyday ease of use, there are loads of features which you can take advantage of - if you like to try new things out, they can really enhance your photos, whilst allowing you to try something a bit different.

The F40 is an 8.3 megapixel camera, which is plenty for every day use. Those wanting to blow photos up into really big images to be printed as posters/canvases etc may want more megapixels, but this really is adequate for normal use. I have printed many standard 5x7 photos which have come out really well, and even a larger canvas I had printed with a photo taken with this camera came out fantastically. It takes both SD and XD memory cards, which is really handy.

There are loads of features from red-eye reduction, to different flash settings to a self-timer. There are also different settings depending on the situation; for example, night-time, sunset, snow, beach, party, flowers or museum, to name a few. The auto setting always gives really good photos, although even then there is a noticeable difference when you choose the relevant setting.

Like the other Fujifilm cameras, the F40 is really durable, and built to last, unlike many of todays cameras. I have taken it on many nights out and holidays. Whilst many friends' cameras have not lasted long, I have now had mine some time and have had no problems at all. Even after having been dropped a few times (oops!) the only visible signs of damage are a couply of tiny scratches which are barely noticeable.

The face detection feature is quite interesting and is really easy to figure out. The camera is sleek and a good size and weight. Whilst there are smaller cameras available on the market, this is definitely still a good size to carry around, and easily fits in pockets and handbags.

The camera looks really good, and the large, high-quality LCD screen allows you to see the photos you have taken really clearly. It is really easily to select and delete any photos. An ISO sensitivity rating ranging up to 2000 ISO means that this camera is much better in low-light situations than many of its counterparts. This was a particular reason for me buying it, as as student going on many nights out!

The battery lasts really well and holds its charge, even when not in regular use - great for those moments where you suddenly decide to take it out, and despite the fact you haven't used it in weeks it still works fine. Manufacturers state that one charge should give the camera enough battery power to take 300 shots; perfect for holidays.

I definitely recommend this camera - it really does take some fantastic photos, and is great value for money. Well worth a buy for anyone looking for an everyday, easy-to-use camera, with loads of features when needed.

Oh, I have a similar one! Finepix A350! I've had it for almost 4 years now and I am still really happy with it! Very nice review.
