6-megapixel camera with 3-inch LCD and 5X optical zoom
30 November 2011
Summary: The FinePix F650 may be a bit on the large and heavy side, but it has enough terrific features and advantages to win us over. The bright, hi-res 3.0-inch LCD is wonderful and you won't want to use anything smaller once you used a display this big. The 5X optical zoom lets you get close, and the ergonomically designed camera's controls are, for the most part, friendly and simple. Even without image stabilization, image quality is generally excellent.
Pros: Huge high resolution 3.0-inch LCD, Very nice 28-140 mm optical zoom lets you get close, Simple, fairly logical controls, Ergonomic design, Has operature and shutter priority modes, Handy push-button LCD boost, 640x480 movies at 30 fps
Cons: No image stabilization, Only goes up to ISO 400, Some menus/operations counter-intuitive, No optical viewfinder, No zoom in movies, Fairly large and heavy
Excerpt: Extreme seems to be the camera market’s mantra– with so many ultracompacts, super-zooms, and fancy digital SLRs, it’s a wonder there’s anything else to choose from. Yet for shutterbugs who want both a camera they can control and that can also fit in a pocket, Fujifilm’s FinePix F650 walks the line well between function and convenience. It comes with a 5X optical, 35mm-to-175mm (35mm equivalent) f/2.8-to-f/4.7 zoom lens, a 6-megapixel CCD sensor, and a 3-inch LCD screen.
Conclusion: Die Bildqualität der Fujifilm FinePix F650 erfüllt zwar keine hohen Ansprüche, ist für Hobbyfotografen aber akzeptabel. Die Stärken der günstigen Kamera sind das große, scharfe Display und das 5fach-Zoom.
