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.
Pros: Optical Zoom, Dual Image Stabilization, Sensor Type, Face Detection, Film Simulation Mode.
Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR takes beautiful shots and packs a wide-angle, 10x optical zoom lens in a small body, but its lackluster user interface and the omission of HD-video capture might be dealbreakers for some.
Pros: Solid image quality. Fast performance. 27mm wide-angle, 10x optical zoom lens in a thin housing. Negligible noise in images taken at ISO 100-400.
Cons: Aging user interface. LCD shows considerable motion blur. Proprietary USB and A/V ports connectors.
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).
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.
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.
Summary: Fujifilm’s FinePix F70EXR is (as of November 2009) the “World’s smallest digital camera with a 10x optical zoom.” The svelte new F70 (which replaces Fuji’s F60fd model) also incorporates the nifty EXR technology introduced earlier this year on the very popular Fujifilm F200EXR.
Pros: 10x zoom, Great image quality, Flexible shooting options
Cons: Some modes only 5MP, No RAW shooting, Slower AF in low light
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.
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.
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.
