FujiFilm FinePix F600 EXR review
12 February 2014
Conclusion: If you’re looking for a compact camera with long zoom and impressive feature set for under the £200 mark, the FinePix F600EXR should certainly be on your list of contenders. It’s bound to be popular with travellers – upto 30x zoom, GPS, RAW shooting, manual control and most importantly, great image...
Pros: Large zoom range, Excellent picture quality, GPS functionality
Cons: Difficult to set panoramas, Only black model is rubberised
Excerpt: With built-in Augmented Reality and GPS capabilities, the Fuji FinePix F600 EXR makes travel-shooting a cinch. Using the built-in GPS the F600 notifies users when they’re close to a landmark, then tags location coordinates to each photo.
Conclusion: The GPS-equipped Fujifilm Finepix F600EXR shows a lot of promise on paper, packing a long 15x zoom lens into a compact body. But the GPS doesn't work as well as we'd like, and images from this superzoom camera are very noisy in low light.
Pros: Sharp lens. 15x zoom range. Nice control layout. Excellent shutter-lag performance. Raw shooting support.
Cons: Poor low light performance. Slow to start. Finicky flash button. GPS is slow to acquire location. Lens vignettes when shooting Raw.
Summary: Fujifilm has a long track record of creating compact cameras with innovative sensor designs that produce surprisingly good image quality in low light, especially considering the small size of the sensors.
Pros: Great image quality, Good low light performance, Feature-rich, manual exposure modes
Cons: Some AF quirks in movie mode, Advanced features require some manual reading
Summary: There’s a lot of tech on offer for the £239 price tag. 15x zoom, 1080p HD movie, small size, GPS manual controls and Raw shooting for under £250? Bargain! If you’re after a travel compact then the F600EXR has a lot on offer for the cash.
Pros: Great value, 24-360mm zoom, Raw files, manual control
Cons: Raw write time, image flare, similar to predecessor
Summary: Outside of the EXR technology, the camera also features a 15x optical zoom lens, Built-in GPS, pop-up flash, 1080p HD video recording, 3.0-inch LCD screen and ISO settings from 100-12800.
Pros: Excellent image quality, Good shooting performance, Always ready to record movies with one touch of a button, 1080p video recording is clear and smooth when in focus, Good high ISO performance up to 1600, Easy to see 3.0-inch LCD screen, Point-n-shoot with EXR auto, Full Manual control, GPS recor...
Cons: Flash is a little weak with a max. range of only 10 feet at wide angle, Stereo mics pick up slightest breeze and lots of background noise, Higher ISO settings are unacceptable (3200-12800), Advanced modes are easy but lack in image quality, Camera has problems keeping moving subjects in focus whe...
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix F600EXR is a great all-purpose camera, packed with useful features and shooting modes for travel photographers. There is little reason for F550EXR owners to upgrade to the F600EXR, though, and those considering the two may want to opt for the F550EXR, which is around £20...
Conclusion: If we take the F600EXR at face value then there’s plenty to like - though the changes since the previous F550EXR model are so minimal that there’s barely a difference between the two cameras.
Pros: Sizeable zoom, Raw shooting, GPS, affordable
Cons: Little difference to its F550EXR predecessor, image quality could be better
