Examples: Fuji F50–IR

Too much of a good thing? The 12-megapixel F50 uses a marginally larger sensor, but doubles the pixel count, which degrades the per-pixel quality as compared with the 6-megapixel F30. Still, if one is willing to downsample 12MP to 6MP, the F50 offers image quality on par or better than the F30, and offers somewhat greater detail (the lens seems hard-pressed to deliver sharpness, probably being diffraction limited too often, as well as clearly inadequate in the corners of the frame (the F30 suffers from this too). In other respects its image quality is very similar to the F30.

The 12MP Fuji F50 improves the ergonomics of the F30 slightly, and offers SDHC card support, a big plus over the incredibly slow xD picture cards of the F30. For a pocketable point-and-shoot, the F50 is an excellent choice. See the comments on the F30 below, most of which apply equally to the F50.

  • How infrared renders, and why certain spectral cutoffs matter: false color vs black and white.
  • Image quality issues to be on the lookout for in infrared.
  • Numerous lens evaluations in infrared.

View an overview of infrared as well as filter spectral transmission plus examples from an optimal lens.
