pre-ordered the Fujifilm F50fd

I want a decent P&S coz lugging my SLR around isn’t all that convenient, to put my money where my mouth is, I pre-ordered the Fujifilm F50fd 2 weeks ago. From the specs this thing is exactly what I want:

  • ISO 6400; in ISO 3200 the res drops down to 6MP, and in 6400 it drops down to 3MP. But 3/6MP sharp pics >> 12MP blurry ones.
  • CCD-shift image stabilization,
  • 12M effective px,
  • full manual,
  • aperture-priority and shutter-priority exposure modes,
  • quick response time and 5fps at 3MP,
  • VGA movie capture with sound for possibly making some waywt videos,
  • and face detection is semi-useful when you ask others to help take your snapshots.
  • all this for under $300!

Will report back when I get it. I still wish it would record in RAW so I can do so much more with the pics. I am also keeping an eye on the new Panasonic cameras, I have plenty of time to cancel the F50fd pre-order. 🙂
