This is my third Fuji camera, and I love the brand. This particular camera is loaded with lots of features, from special filters to a 40xzoom. And as always, Fuji cameras are user friendly. I especially love the double zoom switch, one on top of the camera and a rocker style switch on the lens barrel, so you can use it right or left handed. The picture quality is awesome, and the menu is easy to navigate.
Excellent high-resolution LCD screen
In summary the Nikon Coolpix S8200 improves a couple of major features and adds a few new functions to further improve on a camera that we already liked a lot. Unfortunately it still has some key deficiencies, most notably the so-so image quality especially at the higher ISO speeds, the frustrating need to access the main menu for commonly used options like ISO speed, and the lack of any manual controls for more advanced users.
Feature packed, Good zoom range, Decent image quality
The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 is typical of many bridge cameras on the market. You get loads of useful features which make using the camera a similar experience to a DSLR. Highlights include 10 fps continuous shooting, good battery life, the electronic viewfinder and full manual controls. The downside is that image quality isn't the best you'll get on a camera though, but for those who like to share pictures on sites such as Facebook, this isn't really a big issue for many users.
Great camera, With Limitations
I would only recommend this camera for kids that need a camera that can take a beating or using this around extreme outdoors. For general indoor and sight seeing by land you want to keep your existing camera that probably has better zoom, better in low light, and hopefully better picture quality when blown up on the computer.
Burst modes are very fast which is great for candid street scenes
The price varies depending on retailer but for an average price of around £179, the Fujifilm FinePix XP60 is a good little camera. You get some decent features built in while any issues that surround it, such as the centrally located flash producing red-eye and having an awesome red-eye reduction feature. If you're looking to go on your travels and you want a little camera that has some decent features, the XP60 will suit your needs.
Image stabilisation, Quick focusing
The Fujifilm FinePix XP60 looks good, and offers an impressive set of features including full HD video recording, it's waterproof to 6 metres, and is available in a number of colours. With a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor it offers high speed shooting and fast focusing, however, as it's not a backlit sensor, noise is high and this has a negative effect on images. The lens suffers from vignetting, as well as soft corners, giving disappointing image quality.
An excellent camera for the enthusiast
I chose this camera because I wanted my camera to look and feel like a proper SLR camera and not like a pack of cards! Although it looks solid, it is light and fits perfectly into the hand making it a joy to use. With its powerful 26x zoom lens there is no need to carry additional heavy and cumbersome lenses. The zoom is easy to operate from either by the shutter button or a rocker switch on the side of the lens itself.
Maximum aperture is too slow
The Fujifilm Finepix XP170 is the top dog in Fuji's "Extreme Sports" lineup (the almost identical XP150 is also still available). Many camera users call this class of imaging devices "underwater cameras" or "all-weather cameras", but cameras in this class are actually designed for Extreme Sports aficionados.
Full 1080p HD movie recording and underwater movie mode
If we were to base the review of the XP170 on image quality alone it wouldn't score particularly well. Detail in images isn't great even at the lowest of ISO settings, but if you aren't going to be using the images for large prints but for sharing on the web, this won't be of much concern, particularly as colour reproduction is good enough. Where the XP170 does excel is with its range of features and handling.
The XP-series has carried an affordable price legacy. Until now. The XP170's addition of Wireless Image Transfer hoiks this price point up beyond its XP150 predecessor, acquiring a more sizable Â£220 asking price.
But the XP170 sees no improvements in optical or image quality performance compared to its predecessor and, as a result, it lacks in the all-important camera department.
Full HD video mode and HDMI slot included
It's important for the best waterproof cameras to be tightly sealed against the elements. The last thing you want is to use your camera underwater, only to discover that it wasn't properly built and that it leaks.
With the Fujifilm FinePix XP170, you won't have that problem. Fujifilm has created a very well-built camera with the XP170, ensuring through a double-locking mechanism that this camera will not have problems with leakage.
Comfortable to use and easiest to handle
Overall, a very solid camera for those looking for a rugged camera that can do just about everything. It may be larger than the other cameras, but in my opinion, it's the most comfortable to use and easiest to handle. In my opinion, you can't go wrong buying the XP170 if you're looking for an all around, great rugged camera.
Compact body, Good control layout
The Fujifilm FinePix F750EXR is a very good compact superzoom, but there are cameras out there that deliver more features and better image quality. The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS edges the Fuji out in terms of image quality, adds a GPS, and is available for the same price. Our Editors' Choice, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V, is $70 more, but produces top-notch images and adds a GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Comfortable camera for everyday shooting in most lighting conditions
Even though our test results were a mixed bag, we had a good time shooting with the F750EXR, and found it to be a flexible, comfortable camera for everyday shooting in most lighting conditions. Although the body design is rounded and appears somewhat toy-ish compared to many other 2012 designs, this made the device easier to handle. And while the relatively extensive controls may intimidate newcomers, we took advantage of all this detail to achieve better shots than we wouldâ??
Overly soft at ISO 800+, Poor white-balance
The Fuji Finepix SL280 provides plenty of photographic controls in a relatively compact ultra-zoom digital camera featuring a stabilized 28X optical zoom lens and a 14 megapixels sensor for an affordable price.
Part of the new SL-series, this one adds a hot-shoe at an unprecedented price. This is a great feature to have for handling family portraits and group shots. The Fuji SL280 which is available in Canada has nearly identical siblings with different optical zooms.
Great grip, weight, and feel
The S4200 is a high-end bridge model from Fujifilm, designed as a successor to the S4000 from last year. The top of this line, the S4500 was not available at CES, the only difference being that the S4500 has a 30x zoom and the S4200 has a 24x zoom. The camera certainly looks like a DSLR, the large lens, the curved hand grip and the electronic view finder make the user feel very much in control of the artistic side of photography. We really loved the weight and the grip on this model.
Has an electronic viewfinder, Good rubber grip on front and rear
Given its SLR like style design, electronic viewfinder, manual controls and 18x optical zoom lens, its hard to believe you can purchase this camera for less than £100.00. It's when you look at it's image quality you can see why the camera may not be more expensive.
Built to a high standard
It's a shame that there isn't a "Camera that looks like a budget model but performs like a prosumer" award because the Fujifilm Finepix Z900EXR is a strong contender. It looks a lot less than it delivers because of the unassuming exterior. The internal zoom is also a feature generally reserved for the point and shoot generation that simply want a camera to slip in and out of pockets and bags.
Good quality build
A higher resolution than its predecessor (though from the same size sensor), HDMI output, Full HD video and use of the zoom when recording are all notable improvements over the Z800EXR, which a year ago we were recommending as a best buy for those looking for a competent â??auto everythingâ?? point and shoot. Of course the market has moved on since then and we now expect a lot of bells and whistles for our bucks.
Sleek, slick and funky
The Z900EXR is sleek, slick and funky, and the only issues we have with it are that start up could be a little swifter, plus familiar imaging bugbears such as pixel fringing between areas of high contrast rear their head among the Fujiâ??s images upon close inspection. The touchscreen operation is either love-it-or-hate-it, but the user interface is one of the cleanest implementations weâ??ve come across and for under Â£200 it certainly feels like youâ??re getting your moneyâ??s worth.
