Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd Reviews

PCAuthority reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
Pros: Great features. Solid and stylish design. High-quality LCD screen. Some cracking pictures. Cons: Slow beyond belief at times. Tricky to use ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“A decent but still somewhat disappointing compact, the FujiFilm FinePix Z100fd produces decent pictures at low ISO settings. It’s hampered by an annoying interface and some image quality issues.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

ePhotozine reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“For the right person, this camera is a decent, well rounded and relatively high performance camera… If you’re looking for a thin compact, with a decent zoom and some nice other features, then this is a decent camera to consider.”
Rating: ★★½☆☆

DCR reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“Overall, the Z100fd is a solid camera that performed well if unremarkably for a compact point-and-shoot, and even if its performance isn’t always stunning, the Z100fd never lets fashion get in the way of function..”
Rating: N/A

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“The fully automatic Auto and multiple scene modes make it a snap for anyone to use, and manual mode gives more control to the experienced user. Combine that with the good quality images and you have a very attractive little package.”
Rating: N/A

WDC reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“Images are fairly pleasing – good colour and detail is maintained, and while there’s a little noise in shadow areas at all ISOs, images at ISO 200 and under are fine. Edge and corner sharpness are neither good nor bad; the only main gripe is purple fringing.”
Rating: ★★★★½

TrustedReviews reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd offers a lot of advanced features for a lot less money than most of its competitors. The 5x zoom range, mechanical image stabilisation and ultra-compact size combined with its good low-light focusing and good flash exposure system make it an ideal social snapshot camera…”
Rating: ★★★½☆

CNET.uk reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“The Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd is an excellent point-and-shoot. Experienced photographers might be disappointed by the paucity of manual controls, but a first-class face detection system, capable automatic settings and a large screen make the Z100fd good value for money — and it looks great”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Cameras.uk reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“A single photo took 0.33 seconds. Five photos took 11.19 seconds. These are average times. It is good to see that turning the flash on has a minimal effect. This increases the times to 0.48 seconds for a single shot and 12.75 seconds for five.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“The Fujifilm Finepix Z100fd produced images of average quality during the review period… The Fujifilm Finepix Z100fd’s has an extensive ISO range of 64-1600, but only ISO 64-200 is really usable, with lots of noise and blurring of detail at the higher ISO speeds of 800 and 1600.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“the 100fd performs very well indeed – assuming it has focused! Metering is excellent, colour is rich but not overly so (but of course, you have colour vivid and mono colour modes as well, in menus) while the dynamic range seems to favour highlights over shadows, which look prematurely dense in most of my shadier images”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET Asia reviews the Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd and writes;
“It’s one of the best-looking compact cameras to gallop out of the Fujifilm stable. In fact, we like to think that its brushed metal finish and straight utilitarian lines puts it on par with the best that Sony’s got (the Cyber-shot T200). ”

Rating: ★★★½☆

Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd Press Release

Fujifilm today announced the launch of the 8 megapixel FinePix Z100fd, the latest addition to its popular range of ultra-slim, metal-bodied, high performance compact digital cameras. Available in four stunning color schemes the Z100fd is sure to be a hit with anyone who cares about their image as much as they care about the images they shoot. Despite being only 19.8mm thick the FinePix Z100fd is packed with state-of-the-art technology and advanced features including a 5x optical zoom lens, Fujifilm’s acclaimed Face Detection system, intelligent red-eye removal and CCD-shift image stabilization. Dual xD-Picture Card and SD/SDHC compatibility gives users the freedom to choose from a wide range of high capacity memory cards.

Cutting edge design Designed for the most demanding style-conscious buyer wanting a truly pocketable camera without compromises, the FinePix Z100fd features a totally redesigned metal body that is guaranteed to turn heads whenever and wherever it is used. From the unique diagonal slide lens cover, to the cool illuminated logo, to the eye-catching two-tone colour variations, the FinePix Z100fd’s refined styling and high quality finish set a new, luxurious standard. The FinePix Z100fd will be available in four sophisticated, subtle two-tone colour schemes; Shell Pink, Satin Silver and Cappuccino Brown , plus Tuxedo Black, a striking black special edition with a contrasting white sliding cover panel. The slender design is almost totally flat, meaning the camera can be carried in a shirt or jacket pocket despite offering the power and versatility of a 5x optical zoom.

The FinePix Z100fd features a large high-resolution 2.7 inch, 230,000 pixel LCD screen, which has a reinforced glass coating for scratch-free durability. A new micro thumbnail view (showing 100 shots on one screen) and new control wheel make sharing the largest collection of images a pleasure.
