  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Fujifilm FinePix 6900Z: (3 megapixel prosumer) Fujifilm have done a good job of fixing some of the bug bears we had with the 4900Z. The 6900Z produces well exposed, colourful, detailed and sharp images. The big 6x zoom lens has good quality (if some barrel distortion at wide angle) and sharpness and is fast for it's range (F2.8 - F3.1).
  • Pros: Excellent colour reproduction, probably the best in its class (caveat: some saturation control would be nice), Resolution as good as the best 3 megapixel digital cameras (performed well on our resolution tests), Big 6x optical zoom provides a lot of flexibility, Lens is good quality, very little chromatics, fast (F2.8 - F3.1) for it's "reach", Very fast 5 frames per second burst speed, Wide selection of manual controls, Excellent implementation of manual focus (nice l...
  • Cons: Barrel distortion at full wide angle, Electronic viewfinder isn't the best I've used, Browsing through images in play mode can be frustrating due to the delay between each image, Normal sharpening level is too hard, LCD and EVF don't provide 100% frame view, Still no control over colour / tone camera algorithms, Auto focus at full telephoto can feel slow (in low light / difficult focus situations), Hot pixels at not-so-long exposures, White balance control should be o...

  • Excerpt: Fuji's FinePix 6900 ($999) is their new top-of-the-line consumer digital camera. It's the successor to their FinePix 4900 (see our review), adding the new 3.3 Megapixel SuperCCD that is also found on the FinePix 6800 Zoom (see our review). This new SuperCCD chip uses a different arrangement of the sensors to produce larger images (6 million pixels, in this case), with fewer pixels.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, Full manual controls, Hot shoe for external flash, Handy Focus Check feature, Fast processing speeds, Powerful 6X zoom lens
  • Cons: Proprietary battery, Electronic Viewfinder (I'm not a fan of them in general), No sound in movie mode; lens locked at wide-angle
