Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Fujifilm FinePix F40fd features 8.3 megapixel resolution on a 1/1.6 in. 6th Generation Super CCD HR image sensor, a Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens, and 2nd Generation Real Photo Technology (RP Processor II) delivering low noise ISO 2000 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 F40fd features a "Picture Stabilization" setting that will automatically select a high ISO and fast enough shutter speed to reduce blur due to camera shake.

New is the ability to accept both xD-Picture Card and Secure Digital (SD) memory card.

Unlike the F30 and F31fd, the FinePix F40fd has only Programmed AE shooting mode, and does not have 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 F40fd can take indoors low-light shots better than other brand digital camera.

If you require Aperture-Priority AE and Shutter-Priority AE mode, then consider the Fujifilm F30 (without Face Detection technology) or the Fujifilm F31fd (with Face Detection technology).

If you desire a long zoom version of the F40fd, then consider the Fujifilm S6000fd, with Face Detection technology and full exposure flexibility.
