Fujifilm FinePix F50fd

Review by Alex Burack

Fujifilm's FinePix F50fd is likely to come across vastly different to general consumers versus industry insiders. Those immersed in the industry might question the jump in resolution up to 12 megapixels, viewing the F50fd as essentially a digression for Fujifilm, while general shooters could look to the camera's massive resolution, upgraded face detection, dual image stabilization, 2.7-inch LCD screen, and expansive sensitivity range and think this camera's got it all. Ultimately, there's a bit of truth to both.

The Fujifilm F50fd arrives almost a year after the release of the F31fd. The face detection system offers some nice modifications, which include the addition of white balance and red eye correction, slide show and cropping functionality, and an increase in the number of detectable faces.
