DP Review
5 December 2008
  • Conclusion: With the price of DSLRs dropping all the time, the justification for bridge cameras between compacts and full-grown DSLRs looks increasingly weak. The S100FS makes a game job of proving that there is still room for such a camera. It represents an awful lot of camera for comparatively little money and one that is more flexible than a DSLR kit for the same outlay. Its feature set, including very respectable RAW performance and dynamic range optimization is impressive.
  • Pros: Very useful zoom range, Excellent resolution and good edge to edge detail, Sharp, generally high-quality lens, Expanded dynamic range option (and it works), Excellent high-ISO performance for a non-DSLR, Full photographic control, huge range of SLR-like features (real SLR-like handling too), Bright, sharp, electronic viewfinder (better than most) and articulated screen, Macro modes make lens even more flexible, Fast RAW performance, RAW processing software included, A...
  • Cons: Strong, visible chromatic aberration at the most useful focal lengths, Noise reduction attacks fine detail if you look too close, 230 shot battery life somewhat limiting, Film simulation rarely useful, RAW processing software is unusable, Electronic viewfinder glitches if you pan the camera too quickly, Continuous shooting buffer not as large as on latest entry-level DSLRs, Unnecessarily large RAW files (23MB each)

Fujifilm FinePix S100fs

  • Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix S100 is one of the most comprehensive superzooms available in the market. I am quite impressed with what the camera can manage. Featuring one of the best feature sets in the business, in true Fujifilm style, this comes as close to a cheap SLR as possible. It's quite bulky even by entry-level dSLR standards, at 133 x 94 x 150 mm, and pretty heavy too at 918g. That said, the company's taken care to build an easy-on-the-wrist form factor.

Fuji Finepix S100FS

  • Summary: The Fuji Finepix S100FS is an outstanding camera with unique features for its class such as expanded dynamic range and film simulation. It also features a mechanical zoom covering a 14.3X range from a 28mm wide-angle to a 400mm super-telephoto. This camera does nearly everything and does most things well. We have a few quibbles with it, listed under Cons to the right, nothing serious though.
  • Pros: Mechanical wide angle 14.3X zoom lens, Low image noise, Excellent dynamic range, Flexible rendition of image colors, Great lens sharpness, Good white-balance, Effective stabilization, Very short shutter-lag, Excellent macro mode, Good ergonomics, Good build quality
  • Cons: Pronounced chromatic aberrations, LCD does not always show correct exposure, Focus speeds not on par with camera price, Playback mode ignores buttons while info is not displayed, Slow to flush buffer, AF-On only works in MF, No white-balance button, Slow to wake-up after auto-off, Tiny viewfinder, Short battery-life, Competition from DSLRs

  • Conclusion: Fujifilm FinePix S100fs digital megazoom camera The market for the so-called bridge cameras is very much under pressure due to the DSLR cameras becoming cheaper and cheaper. And yet the bridge cameras are obviously in favour, especially when they have a huge zoom range. It's quite clear that a camera offering an all-round zoom range puts less weight and costs on you than a similar DSLR camera. Fujifilm have broad experience and has been active for years in this segment.

28 November 2008
  • Summary: FujiFilm's FinePix S100fs is a great pseudo-SLR camera. Its 11.1 megapixel sensor and large 28-400mm lens capture great snaps and the manual shooting modes combined with speedy operation make it flexible and powerful.
  • Pros: Huge 14.3x zoom lens, sharp colourful pictures, lots of features, speedy operation
  • Cons: Some chromatic aberration issues, electronic viewfinder

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix S100FS is great for those who want a camera that can do everything at a bargain price, but its picture quality stops it being a match for a DSLR

Fujifilm FinePix S100fs Review

24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Het zijn dit soort kenmerken die mij niet echt super enthousiast maken met betrekking tot het werken met de Fujifilm FinePix S100fs. Het is een fijne camera, daar niet van, met leuke en zinvolle functies, zoals de prima gezichtsherkenning. Je hebt geen stof op de sensor, de grootste ergernis bij een DSLR. En al haal je niet de beeldweergave met meer diepte zoals bij een SLR, de S100FS is prima te gebruiken voor grote vergrotingen en drukwerk.

Fujifilm FinePix S100fs Review

3 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Yukarıda saydığım özellikler insanın Fujifilm FinePix S100fs kamera ile fotoğraf çekme konusundaki hevesini kırıyor. S100fs hoş bir fotoğraf makinesi, mükemmel yüz tanıma fonksiyonu gibi kullanışlı ve yararlı özellikleriyle buna şüphe yok. Ve DSLR kameralarda olduğunu aksine cihazın sensörüne toz ve kir bulaşması gibi bir derdiniz de olmuyor.
