"OK but not as good as Fuji F10"2.5 starson by CajunDilbert7
Pros: Compact Size, Aperature and Shutter Settings, Outdoor photos are excellent
Cons: Pictures are soft, exposures indoors are inconsistent.
Summary: I bought a F50fd for my daughter because I really like my Fuji F10. The performance of the F50 is better than most compact camera's but it is worse than the F10 even though it's resolution is double. The sharpness of the photos is worse as is color reproduction. The optical image stabilization adds at most 1 stop. The video is good. Bottom line is that the camera is better than most compacts but not as good as a F10 or F30.
