  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Fujifilm FinePix F601 Zoom: (3 megapixel compact) The F601 Zoom is a very capable high resolution compact digital camera. It provides a good range of manual features as well as an ease of use which means anyone can point-and-shoot with it. It's clean looks, good build quality and compact metallic case will ensure it sells well in certain parts of the world.
  • Pros: Resolution to match the average four megapixel consumer digital camera, Excellent, vivid colour reproduction (slight orange cast to pure red), 6 megapixel mode good for large prints straight out of the camera, Very quick operation, good buffering excellent shot-to-shot times, Good dynamic range, tonal accuracy, New manual controls are welcome (aperture priority etc.), Images seldom need any post-processing, Superb video recording capability (unlimited length, good fra...
  • Cons: Orange cast to reds, Poor frame coverage for LCD live view (just 89%), No video out from camera, requires cradle, Strong barrel distortion at full wide angle, Limited night exposure ability, SuperCCD image quality doesn't live up to its billing (artifacts, moire etc.), ISO 800, 1600 only at 1280 x 960 and only 94% frame coverage, LCD monitor would gain a lot from an anti-reflective coating, Normal sharpening level is too hard, No control over colour saturation / tone ...

Fujifilm FinePix F601 Zoom

PC Magazine
4 July 2004
  • Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix F601 Zoom is a first-class camera with an excellent lens, a stylish case, and an unusual vertical design. All this adds up to our Editors' Choice. The F601 Zoom is Fujifilm's top-of-the-line point-and-shoot camera. Like most of the company's higher-end cameras, the F601 uses a 3.1-million-pixel version of Fujifilm's newest SuperCCD III image sensor.

  • Excerpt: Back before PMA in February, Fuji introduced three new cameras, each of which uses the new SuperCCD III sensor. This is the 3rd generation SuperCCD, and Fuji promises better pictures with less noise. The "deal" with the SuperCCD is that the individual light sensors on the SuperCCD are arranged in a different pattern that on traditional CCD, allowing for a higher density. That's how a 3.3 Megapixel SuperCCD produces images with 6 million pixels.
  • Pros: Small, nice looking body, Almost full manual controls, High quality pictures in most cases (esp. when downsized or printed), Quick startup time, minimal AF/shutter lag, Very good movie mode (not as good as S602, though), Good bundle
  • Cons: SuperCCD noise issues at 6MP especially, Playback mode just OK, Clumsy menus, No manual white balance or TIFF mode, No AF illuminator

Kipróbáltuk: Fujifilm FinePix F601

29 October 2004
  • Summary: A Fujifilm két évvel ezelőtt bemutatott SuperCCD-jének idén elkészült a harmadik generációs változata. A gyártó minden eddiginél jobb képminőséget, kevesebb zajt és még néhány extrát ígért. Eljött az idő, hogy mindezeket ki is próbáljuk.

FujiFilm Finepix F601 Zoom

18 July 2002
  • Summary: De FujiFilm Finepix F601 Zoom staat zijn mannetje, maar kan, wat het scheidende vermogen betreft, toch niet op tegen toestellen met een CCD van 5 of 6 megapixel. De kleurweergave is te koel. Maar het blijft een mooie camera.

Fujifilm FinePix F601 Zoom

5 June 2002
  • Excerpt: Avec le FinePix F601 Zoom, Fuji reste fidèle à sa ligne d'appareil photo numérique miniature à tenue verticale. Cette compacité se paye par une prise en main particulière, qui impose d'une petite période d'adaptation. La visée s'effectue au choix dans le viseur optique (qui dispose de repères de parallaxe) ou sur l'écran LCD, un peu petit mais de bonne facture: fréquence de rafraîchissement correcte et grille optionnelle facilitant l'alignement horizontal/vertical.
