About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Fujifilm has created an in its EXR sensor, and a few of the company's cameras released recently have included the sensor. But my Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR review shows that the F300EXR may offer the best value of the EXR cameras thus far. 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, Outstanding response times, Focus is sharp throughout the zoom range and in macro mode, Mode dial is handy to use and provides on-screen explanations of each mode
  • 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

Fuji Finepix F300 EXR

  • Summary: The F300 EXR excels in capability as much as it does in performance. This compact digital camera has a very versatile 15X ultra-wide-angle optical zoom lens with built-in stabilization which folds into a 1.3" thick body. Manual controls, including custom white-balance and control over metering, give the Fuji F300 EXR one of the most advanced feature set among compact cameras.
  • 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, Good LCD visibility, Good build quality
  • 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

  • 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. Just a few years ago, the FinePix F60fd had a 3X zoom lens -- we're up to 15X now on the F300EXR. The lens isn't what makes the camera unique, though. Rather, it's the SuperCCD EXR sensor that sits behind it.

Fuji FinePix F300 EXR review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • 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. For now, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 is the better option.

Fujifilm's FinePix F300EXR camera has a 15x optical zoom lens

Good Gear Guide.au
19 June 2011
  • Summary: The 15X-optical-zoom Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR digital camera offers a boatload of features and imaging controls, but video quality, sharpness and low-light performance are major shortcomings.
  • Pros: 15X optical zoom lens (24mm to 360mm), 360-degree instant panorama mode, well-designed mode dial and menus, EXR modes optimise sensor for shooting environment
  • Cons: Poor video quality, shutter lag at startup and after zooming, photos exhibit below-average sharpness, autofocus searches during video and zooming, disappointing low-light performance

Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR review

PC Advisor
30 May 2011
  • Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR is certainly one of the most versatile fixed-lens cameras on the market today, thanks to a 15X optical zoom lens (24mm to 360mm), some unique shooting modes that make the most of the unit's 12-megapixel Super CCD EXR sensor, and a one-touch panorama mode that lets you sweep the camera to create an instant 360-degree image.

Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR

  • Excerpt: Pleasingly Fujifilm appears to have, of late, regained the sense of purpose it displayed at the start of the decade, before being overtaken by those whose heritage lay in consumer electronics rather than film. Not a million miles away from the glossy curves of its recent F80EXR compact, with the matt black F300EXR naturally sporting the same 2nd generation triple-action EXR sensor, it appears to be pushing its boat out with regard to the burgeoning 'travel zoom' sector.
