Summary: Compact and stylish, the Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR is an interesting camera for the first sensor with EXR technology, explained in detail above, then the optical zoom and high for the simulation mode of the film. It has, then, many other features that make it, particularly attractive, even for professional photographers. If he had a larger display and HD video would have a vote even greater.
Pros: Optical Zoom, Dual Image Stabilization, Sensor Type, Face Detection, Film Simulation Mode.
Excerpt: At first look the F70 is curvaceous and sleek with its glossy metal-finished plastic body. It's not overcrowded with buttons with just the power and shutter release with a nice little zoom ring on the top and the basic navigation and mode selection dial at the back. The 2.7-inch screen is bright and visible outdoors, though I did notice a bit of lag while shooting at lower light conditions.
Summary: The Fuji FinePix F70EXR once again demonstrates that there is more to picture quality than just megapixels. With a high quality lens and an innovative high-tech sensor it out-performs almost anything else in its class, and is exceptionally good value for money.
Pros: Build quality, performance, image quality, value for money
Excerpt: The Fuji FinePix F70EXR ($249) is a compact ultra zoom camera that uses the unique SuperCCD EXR sensor, which allows it to take better low light / high ISO photos than your typical point-and-shoot camera (I'll explain how it does that later in the review). It's largely the same camera as the FinePix F200EXR ( see our review ), with the main difference a 10X lens (versus 5X) and a smaller LCD (2.7" instead of 3.0").
Excerpt: The Good Dynamic range helpful for getting the most from shots. 10X lens flexible but still produces good quality. Well-built, compact design. Easy to use while still giving some manual control. Good price for the feature set. The Bad EXR only sometimes a saving grace. Lens zoom isn't as dramatic as you'd expect; slight fringing. No HD video or HD video output. Controls omit shutter priority and could be better-placed.
Pros: Dynamic range helpful for getting the most from shots., 10X lens flexible but still produces good quality., Well-built, compact design., Easy to use while still giving some manual control., Good price for the feature set.
Cons: EXR only sometimes a saving grace., Lens zoom isn't as dramatic as you'd expect; slight fringing., No HD video or HD video output., Controls omit shutter priority and could be better-placed.
Conclusion: If so, you’re unlikely to disappointed with this neat compact camera’s solid performance across the board and its distinctive set of features that flow on from a comprehensive set of standard elements included.
Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR Review is based on a production
model. All sample images are unretouched, except
where specified. The Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR is billed as the world's slimmest 10x optical zoom digital camera at only 22.7mm (0.9 in.) thin. The lens retracts into the body and the streamlined design means you can easily slip this camera right into your trousers pocket.
Excerpt: Our second-cheapest camera looks like a normal compact – albeit with a stylish, metal build. However, inside there’s a Super CCD ‘EXR’ sensor with innovative pixel layout, which works in three ways.
Pros: Innovative features that are exclusive to Fujifilm’s range; class-leading results in low light at highest ISO settings; attractive metal build and finish; fast and responsive; easy to use; great value.
Cons: No HD video, which would have made this cute compact a world-beater.
