Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR: Review
12 July 2013
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR is an excellent compact camera with some very interesting features for both the beginner to the most experienced photographer. The range of features and options is extremely complete and valid, as well as the technology used by Fujifilm.
Summary: The F300EXR doesn't perform very well in HD video mode, and its image quality probably won't appeal to high-end photographers who want to make extremely large prints ... but, then again, almost no sub-$300 cameras do.
Pros: Outstanding value for camera with 15X optical zoom, LCD is large, bright, and sharp
Cons: Popup flash is easy to block with your left hand, The look of the camera is nothing special and is only available in black, HD video mode is of below average quality
Excerpt: The FinePix F300EXR ($329) is the latest in Fuji's series of compact, high sensitivity cameras. Over the years, the camera's have stayed the same size, with the lenses getting considerably longer with each revision.
Summary: The Fuji Finepix F300 EXR builds upon its predecessor to produce very high quality images for a non-SLR digital camera. The unique aspect of the original EXR sensor is that it has three modes: a 12 megapixels mode which produces high-resolution images, a 6 megapixels mode for low-noise images and...
Pros: Excellent image and optical quality, Low image noise up to ISO 800, Highest dynamic range outside of a DSLR, Super-fast autofocus, Extremely versatile ultra-wide lens, Reliable exposure, Accurate image colors, Above average white-balance accuracy, Excellent stabilization, Fast and responsive, Goo...
Cons: Complex interaction of features, strange limits, Interface somewhat twisted, LCD does not keep up during continuous drive, No physical aperture, Video recording delay, Incorrect video framing, Slow video autofocus, Mode-dial easy to change accidentally, Poor battery-life
Summary: Fujifilm’s FinePix F300 EXR has some impressive features, with the phase-detection AF and 15x zoom lens taking the plaudits.
However, enthusiast photographers will be disappointed by the image quality and the lack of image colour customisation options.
Excerpt: Fujifilm’s EXR technology is one of the more enlightened developments in digital camera design in recent years. While most manufacturers are embroiled in a pointless megapixel race, Fujifilm produced a sensor that could switch between 12 and 6 megapixels at a fundamental level rather than just by...
Conclusion: I like this camera. The Fuji Finepix F300EXR ticks most of the right boxes if you are looking for a digital camera to slip into a pocket ready for the next photo opportunity. The features on offer give you plenty of flexibility and different shooting options.
Pros: Features - Picture Quality - Design
Cons: A minor gripe, it could be faster to turn on.
