The graceful curves and sleek design belie the complex electronics within the F50fd’s tough metal exterior. At a depth of only 22.9mm, it’s a perfect fit for a pocket or handbag.
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.
This new camera features a sharp 3x Fujinon optical zoom lens, (equivalent to 38-110mm on a 35mm camera).
Despite its compact size, there are no compromises with optical clarity and speed of operation. The lens is robust, reliable, and delivers sharp pictures every time.
Fingertip control with our Mode Dial
Ultimate control is at your fingertips with the F50fd’s vertical Mode Dial and streamlined `Graphical User Interface’.
The intuitive icon based interface confirms shooting modes, scene positions, or control settings with brief explanations on the LCD screen. Easy-to-read icon and text description of the selected mode help you choose and confirm the optimum setting for best results. This takes much of the guesswork out of digital camera operation. With less to worry about, you'll have more fun with your picture taking!
High resolution LCD screen
The FinePix F50fd features a large high-resolution 2.7 inch, 230,000 pixel LCD screen, which is coated with Fujifilm's proprietary Wide View film. This minimises glare and reflections, and also enables consumers to view the LCD from any angle (even in sunny conditions), to enable shooting from waist level or above the head, or to make picture playback to a group so much easier.
Convenient xD/SD compatibility
The FinePix F50fd features an xD/SD compatible slot, allowing the use of either xD Picture Card, SD or SDHC media to store and transfer your photos.
This will give you the flexibility to buy the card you want, use cards from previous cameras, or choose the media that fits with your other desktop devices like laptops, PDAs or card readers.
The FinePix F50fd makes it possible for you to get that picture even if your memory card is full. The 54MB of internal memory built into this compact model provides enough storage for up to 88 photographs, (at 2MP setting), and ensures that you will never have to miss that special shot.
Think of it as your internal insurance policy for photo opportunities. With that said, the main storage for images on the Z100fd should be an additional xD card, which will allow you to accommodate almost as many images as you like.
