Fujifilm FinePix J50 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.


Massive over-compression and image noise at 100 ISO have robbed this picture of the kind of fine detail I'd expect from an 8MP camera.


The great pity of the J50 is that the lens is actually very good, with virtually no distortion at wide angle.


Centre sharpness is very good.


Even in the corners the lens is nice and sharp. A pity the sensor and processor can't match it.

The image "quality" is truly terrible on the J50. Interesting because in your recent review of the J10, the image quality was much better, something you wouldn't expect with the cheaper camera in the series. I'd have no problem recommending the J10 for someone who wants an entry level camera, but I wouldn't recommend the J50 to anyone.
