The Fujifilm FinePix F-series
is a line of compact digital cameras
that was renowned for its good low-light performance in 2005, with relatively low image noise
and natural colors even at high ISO
settings. With its relatively large, but moderate-resolution Super CCD
sensors, it concentrated on image quality at a time when competing products began to neglect quality in favor of high megapixel counts, and low-light shooting without flash was mostly restricted to prosumer
Image comparisons show that Fujifilm's sixth-generation, 6.3-megapixel Super CCD sensor (used on F10/F20/F30/F31 models) set the benchmark for low-noise, high ISO performance among point-and-shoot cameras and has not yet been matched by any of Fuji's higher megapixel Super CCD sensors to-date.
The Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR
(February 2009) has similar low light capabilities as the F31fd in pixel binning mode, but allows for double the resolution in good light. However, at the same focal length the lens of the F200EXR is about 1/2 stop slower than that of the F31fd. The key feature of the F200EXR is its very large dynamic range (estimated to be 11 stops) when used in its dual-capture mode.
The first breakthrough model of the F-series, the 6.3-megapixel FinePix F10
, was announced in February 2005 and became available on April 30 of that year. The F10 was met with... Read More
