You can also access the set up menu from here and this is just as easy as any other Fujifilm camera. The earthy tones look good and these can sometimes be overlooked. It’s accompanied by a flash that’s the same size as any other on a small compact but because it’s squarer, looks bigger. The close focusing of the Fujifilm FinePix J50 is 5cm. Talk me out of sending back my Christmas present. Although it’s easy to get swept away with new technology that a camera of this classification simply won’t have. A typical layout with controls to the right.

Fujifilm FinePix J50 Digital Camera Review

The Fujifilm Finepix J50 is comfortable to hold, with the shooting mode dial on the back of the camera where your right thumb is naturally positioned, and a small lip that acts as a handgrip on the front.

Talk me out of sending back my Christmas present. Or do you even notice? The tripod bush sits in the middle of the camera which is great as it means less movement when taking a picture.

Is the J50 a worthwhile addition to Fujifilm’s already extensive range of compact digital cameras, or does it simply cut too many corners? Build and handling For a camera sat under a hundred pounds, the build feels quite good. Primarily designed to be easy to use and portable, the Fujifilm J50 boasts a straight-forward control layout housed in a slimline 23mm thick body.


Luckily it’s not a major format that a DSLR, for instance, would use. Manual mode frees up extra features in the menu such as being able to change the ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation and white balance. If you’re in the mood for a happy snapping camera that will do pretty much everything for you then take a look at this one.

Don’t know about you, but I’m really miffed about this The primaries are all saturated with priority given to landscape colours. Saying that I’m confused with why the film simulations are absent. It’s fair to say that the J50 is not the right camera if you require finepkx advanced controls, with only one type of focus and metering on offer, for example.

I was intrigued to see how it fared against regular program mode. Thankfully Fujifilm have bucked the recent trend of not providing hard-copy manuals and supplied it in printed format.

Are you happy with what you have, or not? As the pioneers of the technology, I would’ve thought Fujifilm would’ve given access to face detection if only as something to be proud of. Add this product to your shortlist for comparison. Page 3 Sample Images. In fact it’s a good thing that the camera is priced at less than a hundred pounds because I’d feel short changed if it was any higher. I thought that maybe it would play down the colour boosts of the processor to give a less saturated look to the image.


It’s quite similar to the system used on many DSLR cameras and allows quick access to the various modes.

Performance If you look at other reviews on ePHOTOzine, you’ll see a pattern emerging with how the colours are judged on the colour test chart. I wonder whether this may spell the end of xD format once and for all.
