Excerpt: This compact model, with a 5.08 cm display (2 inch) of 115.000 pixels (quite small…) appears to have problems while focusing in dark light and in tele mode. But the good thing about it its the multitude of functions and semiautomatic programs, even a manual exposure mode.

Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix E900 ($399 list) is a 9 megapixel digital camera aimed at those who want a little more than what a typical point and shoot digital camera offers. The camera is not one of the popular credit card sized models that you can slip in your pocket, nor is it big like an SLR-type model.

Excerpt: The Fuji FinePix E900 ($499) is a midsized digital camera with a 9 Megapixel SuperCCD HR sensor -- yes, you read that right: 9 Megapixel. The E900 uses the same sensor as its big brother (the FinePix S9000), though it doesn't offer the ISO 1600 and anti-shake functions as that camera.
Pros: Very good photo quality (though see issues below), Good high ISO performance for a non-SLR camera, Full manual controls, Fast startup, focusing, shot-to-shot speeds (assuming you're not using RAW mode), Useful Natural Light mode, Nice movie mode, Support for conversion lenses, Rechargeable batter...
Cons: Sluggish performance in some areas: RAW recording, playback mode, Fuzzy details in some photos (things like grass, leaves, hair), Some redeye, No AF-assist lamp; poor low light focusing, Lens locked at wide-angle in macro mode, LCD can be difficult to see in low light; screen is low resolution as...
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix E900 features a 9-megapixel 5th Generation Super CCD HR sensor Which makes it the highest resolution available in a consumer digital camera at the time of this review. The compact and lightweight FinePix E900 is the current flagship of Fujifilm's E-series.
Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix E900 is a good–not great–digital camera. The tendency for the lens to grab focus in low light was annoying. Outdoors or shooting with a decent amount of ambient light eliminated this problem but it’s still there.
Pros: Good 9MP image quality; lightweight
Cons: Uneven focusing; no AF Assist lamp or hot shoe
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix E900 Zoom is one
of the new generation of Fujifilm digital cameras
with the 5th Generation SuperCCD HR image sensor
with low-light capability. With 4x optical zoom and 9.0MP resolution, the
Fujifilm E900 provides very good to excellent
