Overheard in the dpreview forums (and new Fuji in UK)

New from Fuji UK

  • Spotted by dpreview forum user "Cubensis" is the Fuji F47fd on the UK webpage of Fuji.
  • Long dpreview discussion of this in the Fuji Talk forum
  • Direct Fuji UK page for the F47fd
  • This has drawn the ire of some Fuji fans because they are using the higher-megapixel sensor which is not as good when it comes to noise performance as the "magic" 6mp sensor.
  • However, kudos to Fuji for continuing with the xD/SD-compatible slot. This is something I have been saying for many months now (and I wasn't the only one, other forum/Fuji users talked about this as well).
