Category: Beginner Amateur

The Fujifilm FinePix F31fd is basically a FinePix F30 with the addition of Face Detection technology which can simultaneously detect up to 10 faces in real time. It still features 6.3 megapixel resolution on a 1/1.7 in. 6th Generation Super CCD HR image sensor, a Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens, and 2nd Generation Real Photo Technology delivering low noise ISO 3200 at full resolution.

This low-noise high-ISO capability means that you can take pictures indoors in low-light situations much better than with other digital cameras. To this effect, the Fujifilm F31fd features a "Picture Stabilization" setting that will automatically select a high ISO and fast enough shutter speed to reduce blur due to camera shake.

The Fujifilm F31fd comes with a Low Light AF Focusing Assist Lamp to help focusing in low-light and an extra large 2.5 in. LCD monitor (230,000 pixels) with Anti-Glare Coating and Low Light Viewability Gain-up Brightness Mode so you can see and compose in low-light.

The FinePix F31fd has enhanced manual controls including shutter and aperture priority modes. 15 pre-programmed scene modes help automate common picture-taking situations.

Movie recording is 640 x 480 pixels at 30 frames/sec with monaural sound. A new i-Flash system avoids washed out pictures by outputting only the right amount of light.

Thanks to its low-light capabilities, the Fujifilm FinePix F31fd can take indoors low-light shots better than any other brand digital camera.

If you do not require Aperture-Priority AE and Shutter-Priority AE mode, then consider the Fujifilm F40fd at about US$100 less.

If you desire a long zoom version of the F31fd, then consider the Fujifilm S6000fd, with Face Detection technology.
