You may already know that this unassuming little camera, along with its predecessor, the F30, is widely considered a modern classic. What is unique is its proprietary Fuji sensor which, whilst not the highest in pixel count, currently offers by far the best low-light performance of any compact on the market. That is not just my opinion - read the major review sites to see how this camera stands out.

In real terms you get great pictures in conditions that flummox most non-SLR cameras, especially in typically overcast UK conditions or indoors when normal cameras would force you to resort to unflattering use of flash.

Having previously been a little disappointed with the results of a tiny Panasonic Lumix, which produced shockingly noisy prints even in bright weather, I did plenty of research before buying this Fuji. Whilst this is a fraction larger, it is still highly pocketable and the final image quality is far superior. It may not have the image stabilisation of the Lumix or my larger KM A200 but it more than makes up for it in low-noise high ISO modes.

I have taken lovely hand-held shots from my flat of night rolling in over the city, something I wouldn't normally contemplate without a long exposure on a tripod. More importantly for me, the F31fd takes impeccable natural light portraits of my baby daughters whether indoors or out.

I was tempted to go for the newer F40fd with 8MP sensor and SD card compatibility until I found it lacked manual modes and looked ugly and cheap in comparison (though some reviews prefer it proving the old adage that beauty is in the eye of the beholder). Why they didn't just upgrade the sensor and maybe offer a black option I will never know, but it's telling that they have retained the F31fd alongside.

I am principally a Digital SLR user, and wanted an easily pocketable camera to replace my old Canon Ixus 400. I naturally went for the highest MP size in the Ixus range - the 10.0MP Ixus 900Ti - but was very disappointed with the quality of the results. The pictures lacked detail and were particularly soft in the corners. A second 900Ti had even poorer picture quality (both were worse than my original 4MP Ixus 400) so it was back to the drawing board. After weeks of researching magazines and on-line reviews, I was impressed most by reviews of the F31fd, and I have not been disappointed. Admittedly it hasn't all the bells and whistles of the Ixus but the picture quality is superb right the way across the frame, with corners impressively sharp. Besides the usual programme settings, the F31fd offers the more creatively-minded control of shutter speed and aperture, an feature lacking in the Ixus and many other of the more expensive compacts.

If taking photos is about getting the best pictures possible, you can't go wrong with the F31fd. It is so much cheaper than most of its rivals - at £130 approx it is worth every penny.

I bought this camera due to reviews about its "super CCD" light sensor which can produce good pictures in light that other cameras would struggle with. It does exactly that, with a natural light mode which will not use the flash and can still take great pictures. I found that this camera topped all the reviews I could find about it.

I bought it to take on safari, thinking that we'd be in low light situations a lot and that a flash would be pretty much useless. The camera was flawless and produced great pictures in light that would have stumped others.

Its well made, being a metal case and its quick to start up. Battery life is fantastic and seems to be up to the 500+ shots claimed. On our trip we took over 300 photos and the camera spent most of the holiday on full charge, only showing some discharge near the end. In the future I won't take the charger with me, one less thing to pack or worry about. Combine this with a 1Gb xD card and you've got a great holiday/quick camera.

I'd rate this over other 8 & 10 megapixel cameras, high pixels are no use if the picture get is poor or the light sensor cannot produce a clear picture.

On paper, there are higher specified cameras on the market, and notable "omissions" on the Fuji F31fd spec are: small resolution compared with the market-standard 8-10mp resolution now available, lack of optical camera-shake reduction mechanism, lack of a very long zoom.

And here's why none of those omissions really matter.

"It's only 6mp!"
The 6.3mp sensor on the F31 is a tried and tested item and produces wonderfully smooth images. Having recently tried a £400 Ricoh Caplio GX100 with a 10mp sensor, I can attest to the notion that too many pixels crammed onto a sensor = noise = bad image quality. Lots of pixels does not mean lots of quality. After a certain threshold (dependent on the size of the sensor), you start to get poorer quality images. The Fuji's results are sharp, clean and saturated.

To put 6mp into perspective, prints upto 8x10 will be absolutely fine. 10x12 will be very acceptable. Above that, they will be fine for viewing from anything other than the closest inspection. Does anyone really print A3 prints of everything they take? 6mp is fine for more than 99.9% of the home users' images.

"It only zooms to 110mm" (35mm equiv.)
Very long zooms just mean even slower lenses, which are eventually unusable in anything but the brightest of light. Camera shake is also exaggerated with longer zooms. The compromises that a manufacturer has to make to the whole of the zoom range are not worth the extra reach, and the pulling power of a telezoom dimishes the further up the scale you go. The difference between 24mm and 28mm is vast at the wide angle, but the difference between 80mm and 100mm is hardly noticeable at the tele-end. Not worth sacrificing image quality for.
