My partner and i bought this camera as i lost the last one we had! I'm not great with technical things whereas he likes to get things that are good quality at a good price and he spent a long time researching and finally decided on this one because of the reviews and write ups he had seen. He also popped into Jessops where it was recommended to him but then we searched online for the best price. We found it on a site using a voucher code and got it for £169 which seemed quite a good deal. We then went on Ebay and bought a case for £1.99p so it's definitely worth shopping about as they are £30 in some shops! It has 12 megapizels so the picture quality is very good and very clear. You can also shoot videos on it and you can put the camera on different settings depending on the light and conditions you are in. When you take a picture it also has face recognition which means it not only takes the shot that you take but also frames a close up shot of faces for you. It also has red eye reduction which is always good. The battery life is really good and we regularly go out and take a couple of hundred photos and it can easily cope with this. We used it for our whole holiday in Egypt and didn't need to charge it once. It's easy to connect to the computer and load up the photos. I haven't quite got to grips with all the different functions on the camera but as long as it takes good quality photos that's all that matters to me!
I bought this camera last May 2008 before going on holiday to Europe. my previous Fuji (F700 had give excellent service but the screen was quite hard to read for my aging eyes). Any way the f100FD has lived up to the Fuji reputation of being able to prodcue photos in the most difficult situations. One of my particular likes is the setting called museum, where it uses no flash or noise to take shots, and appropriate ISO settings. It works a treat in places where you don't want to know people are being photographed. I bought the camera prior to reading a thorough review (only owners which were very positive) in dpreview website. Recently dpreview did a comparison of this camera, to others from Canon, Panasonic, Nikon, etc and the Fuji was the winner. the only slight negative i have about the camera is that the batterty does not have a great capacity, but you can't have that and pocketablity.
Dynamic range for digital cameras means the expression domain between the brightest and darkest areas. Fujifilm now takes you beyond ultra sensitivity and extends dynamic range for photos with more detail in both shadow and highlights. FinePix Wide Dynamic Range gives you the ability to explore extreme scenes and capture all the nuances of brightness and tonality. Skies and seas are expressed with a palette of vivid blues. Previously unseen details in the shadows emerge. It's time to get real with the FinePix F100fd.
