With digital SLRs becoming ever more popular and accessible, and pocket-sized compact cameras sporting lenses with up to 12x zoom, the traditional SLR-styled super-zoom bridge camera is in danger of becoming something of an anachronism. While a couple of years ago most camera manufacturers would have three or four super-zoom models in their range, today most have only one. One company does still seem to have faith in the format however. Fujifilm has a long and successful history with super-zoom cameras, producing some instant classics such as the FinePix Z, the S , the Sfd and of course the brilliant S , still one of my favourite cameras of all time. This revolutionary sensor has three modes of operation. In normal mode it operates like any other megapixel CCD.

The F10 was met with widespread critical acclaim and became a hit seller for Fujifilm. Lacking aperture and shutter speed priority modes, the F10 was mostly a point and shoot camera.
Other criticisms included the proprietary dongle needed to make any connections to the camera and a relatively high level of purple fringing. It also had a slightly improved LCD screen and a few other minor improvements to the F Although there is definite noise in pictures taken at ISO, they are often usable, and the F30 was seen as another leap forward in low-light abilities for a compact camera. F20[ edit ] Fujifilm FinePix F20 camera In July , Fujifilm announced the FinePix F20, a lower-priced, slightly scaled-down version of the F30 that maintained most of the same features but was geared more towards non-enthusiast users.
Compared to the F30, the F20 had a lower-resolution LCD screen, lower capacity battery, a maximum ISO of , and a few other changes to the body and menu system. It also lacked Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority modes. Moreover, the F31fd features hardware-based Face Detection technology which debuted with the introduction of the FinePix Sfd , which allows the camera to automatically focus on and expose for faces.
As of , the F31fd was considered the best of the low-light compact small sensor cameras. The F40fd is considered to be the successor to the F20, with many new features, most notably a bump to 8. The F40fd is also sold under the name FinePix F45fd with only cosmetic differences. It is not firmware compatible with the F40fd but it has its own firmware update available to add support for SDHC memory cards .
Succeeding its predecessor, the F31fd, this latest model is greatly improved over the F40fd. Boasting a 7th generation megapixel Super CCD, a 2. Face recognition has been updated to 2. No longer does the camera need a direct-frontal shot in order to identify a face, it can capture faces at different angles without the subject having to look straight to the camera.
A small number of F50fds were sold under the name F50SE. It features a megapixel chip, a wide angle zoom mm equiv. The Ffd does not contain aperture priority or shutter priority modes, hence it cannot be considered a successor of the F11, F30, F31, F50 models. The pink band can be seen on the left side of the photograph.
FujiFilm attempted to address the situation with a firmware update. A drawback of the new wide angle lens in the F that the associated aperture has only two positions: wide open and closed.
The Ffd has no continuous aperture. For this reason the Ffd or a successor with the same lens system cannot be equipped with the creative shooting modes i. In December , the Ffd won the Digital Photography Review "premium compact camera" group test  because of its image quality. It is almost identical to the FinePix F50fd except for a larger 3" LCD and updated firmware that includes in-camera relighting high dynamic range functions and intelligent scene recognition. In contrast to the Ffd, the F60fd does have photography modes for creative shooting i.
The camera offers several manual modes and automatic scene recognition. Its most remarkable feature is the choice between three different sensor modes: full resolution mode, high dynamic range mode, and low light mode.
The latter two modes work at effective 6 MP and use two simultaneously taken pictures and pixel binning respectively. The FEXR also features sensor stabilization. New "Pet detection" and an integrated orientation sensor are also included. Other new features include a double sliding lens structure which make the lens both a wide angle and telephoto lens in a smaller package and a pop up flash.
Some of these cameras had earlier versions of the Super CCD sensor, but Fuji had not yet refined the use of the sensor specifically to reduce noise, and had not yet combined other low-light performance features to make them stand out. Most of these earlier cameras did not have autofocus assist beams , and none of them had remarkable battery life.
