The Fujifilm Finepix F31fd is Fuji's first pocketable digital camera to feature hardware-based Face Detection technology. Face Detection has great impact on people photography, ensuring the camera automatically focuses on and exposes for faces rather than details that can confuse other cameras. Coping with up to ten faces in a frame, it ensures photos of friends and family are crisp, clear, and perfectly exposed no matter what the occasion. Because Fujifilm's Face Detection technology is built-in to the camera's processor, it is able to identify faces, optimise settings and take the photo within just 0.05 seconds.
The F31fd features unrivalled low-light performance of ISO 3200 at full resolution, made possible by Fujifilm's acclaimed Real Photo Processor II, combines with Face Detection to make the FinePix F31fd the ultimate compact for people photography. With a Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens, 6-megapixel Super CCD HR VI, a 2.5-inch LCD screen, and unique Fujifilm technologies such as Intelligent Flash, the FinePix F31fd is perfect for anyone looking for a camera that will rise to any occasion.
The camera's fast response times, 0.01-second shutter lag, and 1.5-second start-up time ensure it will catch all the action and spell the end of missed photo opportunities. Its 580-shot battery life makes it an ideal constant companion for days out or weekends away without the worry of missed photo opportunities thanks to a spent battery.
New Face Detection Technology
The new F31fd Finepix digital still camera features Face Detection, a new technology designed to significantly improve your picture taking by identifying human subjects' faces in the frame (up to 10 faces) and, in real time, determining the optimal focus and exposure settings for the absolute best results possible in any shooting conditions. Behind Fujifilm's Face Detection technology is a newly developed LSI chip combined with patented software that allows the FinePix F31fd digital still camera to reach a level of performance in digital photography never before possible.
Blurry images are the most common complaint of digital camera users. Fujifilm's new Picture Stabilization mode eliminates blur due to subject movement and camera shake, even in low light backgrounds. Simply select the Picture Stabilization icon on the dial on top of the FinePix F31fd, and you're ready to shoot. Picture Stabilization automates professional photographic techniques to deliver clear images with true color and fine detail.
The Sensitive Side
Sensitivity in photographs means you get true color, fine detail, and clear pictures. The FinePix F31fd utilizes Fujifilm's new 6th generation Super CCD-HR to capture more light with less electronic noise. Combined with the RP Processor II and an aspherical Fujinon lens system, which are used widely in professional broadcast TV cameras, the FinePix F31fd can reach ground-breaking levels of sensitivity, up to ISO 3200 with very low noise, which can cause grainy pictures. This ultra-high sensitivity means you can capture the perfect picture, even in low light, just as your eye sees it. And all with extremely fast operational and processing speeds so you never miss a shot.
Now your digital camera will last longer than you thanks to an extended life Lithium-Ion battery. The FinePix F31fd delivers an astonishing 580 shots per charge, which means you're always ready for that next photo opportunity. And then simply connect the camera to the AC adapter to recharge and be ready for your next party, wedding, vacation, or any other picture-taking occasion.

The results are more natural looking subjects and backgrounds that are bright and full of crisp detail, so you capture the picture just the way you see it.
Easily frame and share shots
The FinePix F31fd makes it easy to frame your shot and share your memories with a high resolution LCD. The 2.5-inch LCD has 230,000-pixel resolution and a fast refresh rate giving you smooth, clear viewing in high-resolution color. The LCD adjusts image brightness to surrounding light levels automatically. For added control in darker settings, simply press the one-touch manual gain up to increase the LCD brightness for better viewing.
