Summary: Fujifilm's vaunted F-series makes a comeback with the latest 2012 models, including the top-of-the-line F770EXR. But can the F770EXR, with a 20x optical zoom and the latest EXR sensor, return the series to its former glory?
Conclusion: On top of some excellent high-end features and full manual control, there's a great selection of automatic options and Fuji's versatile EXR sensor technology to boot. Suffice to say this is a very capable little camera that's well worth adding to your shortlist if a big zoom lens and a smaller price tag are among your top priorities.
Excerpt: The FinePix F770 EXR is one of Fuji's most powerful and versatile, yet incredibly compact digicams. It has been loaded with all of their highest quality features and components, including a 16-Megapixel backside illuminated CMOS imaging sensor, dual core EXR image processor, 20x optical zoom lens and full 1080p HD video recording with just one touch of a button.
Summary: The Fuji Finepix F770 EXR expands on the unique feature-set of the F550 EXR Fuji Finepix F550 EXR and remains one of the most sophisticated compact cameras to date. This digital camera uses a revised EXR CMOS-sensor that gives it a top resolution of 16 megapixels, up to 1600% dynamic-range, full-resolution high speed 8 FPS continuous drive, full 1080p HD and high-speed movie capture. This is paired with a new 20X ultra-wide angle optical zoom lens.
Pros: Low image noise in EXR-SN mode, Superb dynamic-range in EXR-DR mode, Consistent sharpness, Low optical distortion, Superb resistance to chromatic aberrations, Very good automatic white-balance, Reliable exposure, Superb stabilization, Very fast autofocus, Quick responsive, Great LCD visibility, Solid build quality
Cons: Softness starting ISO 1600 at 16 MP, Complex interaction of features, strange limits, Not, No physical aperture, Choppy LCD in continuous drive, 2s Video recording delay, No quick access to WB
Summary: The Finepix F770 EXR looks great and is capable of some stunning results, be they still, video or panoramics; the camera is also an odd mix of contradictions packed full of clever kit that then takes a while to get to grips with. The impressive sensor and processor mean technically, it's able enough and operates quickly, but the menu systems and interface are too convoluted.
Conclusion: Without doubt the F770 EXR from Fujifilm quickly proves to be as functional as it is attractive and for all that it offers bundled so beautifully into a compact but punchy little package, it’s safe to say the price tag is absolutely appropriate as well. If the generous 20x optical zoom and the 770’s sexy look alone don’t immediately sell you no doubt the long list of other impressive specifications and offerings will – not to mention to noticeable lack of negatives in...
Excerpt: Fujifilm has been gaining steam as a contender in the digital camera world. Names like Nikon and Canon have enjoyed elevated status for their diverse lineups for years. More recently, Olympus has been thrown into that mix as well, primarily for its more sophisticated models. But Fujifilm quietly snuck into this club with its X Series line of very professional, very impressive, very expensive cameras.
Pros: Nice chassis, sleek design, Small for a GPS camera, Capable pocket superzoom, Solid hardware features (impressive sensor technology, fast, powerful processor)
Cons: In-camera UI is clunky and unintuitive, Little low on the firmware features (no filters, unimpressive in-camera experience), On the pricey side for what you’re getting
Conclusion: There's plenty to love about the Fuji F770 EXR and - with just a few caveats that we experienced during our testing period - overall, this well made, pocket-sized powerhouse leaves a very favourable impression. On top of some excellent high-end features and full manual control, there's a great selection of automatic options and Fuji's versatile EXR sensor technology to boot.
