Furthermore, when a still image isn’t sufficient, the camera’s movie mode, captures movie clips with sound that are of broadcast quality. I found myself pretty consistently partially blocking the flash with fingers on the left hand when shooting vertical composition flash shots. The F40fd is a stylish camera that takes produces high quality photos, even at high ISO settings. I did not find shutter lag to be a problem, even at the slower shutter speeds at which it can occur. Camera performance was average. The F40’s playback mode is fairly standard as well. It’s easy to hold and operate with just one hand, but the mode dial is placed right where your thumb goes, making it easy to accidentally switch modes.

The beauty of these cameras isn’t really their design, lens, or feature set. The difference between standard and “chrome” color was not readily apparent. There is more to this cam than I am allowed to write hereI would recommend the F40 to f40td who needs a smallback-up camera.

Flip the camera over and you’ll see its beautiful 2.

And here it is. A recently published patent from Canon details the schematics for a medium telephoto macro lens with image stabilization for its new RF mount.

Overall lens performance was good, and typical for cameras in this class.


Dec 26, ISO performance, more than any other feature, is what sets the F40fd apart from the rest of the non-Fujifilm compact crowd. The last thing to see on the front of the camera is the microphone, located to the lower-right of the lens.

If you take a lot of photos in less-than-desirable light, this camera is a great choice as long as you don’t plan on printing 20 x 30 posters. As is usually the case, the optical zoom cannot be operating while you’re recording. The manual for FinePixViewer is installed on your computer along with the software. The digital zoom is disabled as well.

Dec 19, This is my favorite kind of charger — it plugs directly into the wall. The F04fd F40fd’s image sensor is coupled with a 3x optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length range of 36 – mm – a moderate fujiiflm angle to a moderate telephoto.

Like all compact cameras, the FinePix F40fd’s proprietary battery has some fujifiml. The F40fd supports the USB 2. For longer movies you can reduce the resolution to xwhich doubles your recording time. The Wacom Intuos Pro is a workflow-boosting machine.

In addition to the standard color that was used for the fujiflm images, the F40fd permits the use of “chrome” color, which features “increased saturation and contrast” over standard, and a black and white mode.

Specifically, two series of 8MP images. Officials say ‘rogue drones’ have caused ‘chaos’ and shut down London’s Fuhifilm airport.

What’s the deal with the IrSimple feature? I’ll have more on the camera’s high ISO performance later in the review. The camera takes sharp, well-exposed photos with accurate colors, and very little noise — even at ISO The five modes in which light is present are “auto”, “red eye reduction”, “forced flash”, “slow synchro” and “red eye and slow”. The Nikon P is a bit of an oddity, but the unique shooting opportunities it makes possible are why it’s Editor Jeff Keller’s pick this year.

The FinePix F40fd turned in a pretty good performance in our macro test.
