Just posted up a review of the Fujifilm FinePix F31fd camera.
In fact, I’d only bought the thing as my beloved Ricoh GRD (only the finest digital compact ever!) had to go in for repair, and I needed something to for New Year’s Eve.
I figured that it taking a GR out for a night on the piss looked a bit like overkill, so I wanted something a little more pocketable.
I liked the F31fd, but after being spoilt by the comprehensive, hands-on controls of the GR, the interface seemed well fiddly.
As with all Fujifilm cameras, the low light performance was excellent though, even if it isn’t the most attractive camera around.
Unfortunately, I had some problems with the camera (it lost some photos – grr), so I had to take it back to the Tottenham Court Road store* I bought it from after just four days.
(*I normally avoid these stores like the plague, but it was the only place that had the camera in stock at the time.)
Needless to say, it took a 15 minute heated argument to get the dodgy fuckers to agree to exchange the camera, but I eventually left with a shiny new Canon Ixus 850IS. Expect a review soon!
