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: 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
Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR is a compact camera with lots of power in the engine room, so to speak, and it's also a model that has been blessed with good looks. Lots of curves, attention to detail, as well as a firm build quality, make it a desirable little unit and one that also feels very comfortable and convenient to use.

Summary: Fujifilm's FinePix F770EXR is a versatile little camera with a nice design and an ability to capture wonderfully-detailed and richly-coloured images. Its 25-500mm zoom lens, along with a small body size, make it a suitable camera to carry at all times.
Pros: Great colours and contrast, Nice design, Versatile lens
Cons: Menu system could be a little better, High ISO performance not great, Video mode could be better
Conclusion: The competition between the leading cameras in this category is very tough. They all take good pictures, have similar features and are available for roughly the same price. The Fuji Finepix F770EXR stands alongside the best in the bunch and loses little by comparison. You should be able to take a decent photo in more or less any situation and there are more than enough features to play around with to fine tune your photos and get the most out of this camera.
Pros: Picture quality, features, compact size, value for money, shutter response
Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix F770 EXR is the top of the range travel zoom from Fujifilm, and features a 20x optical zoom lens, 16.1 megapixel backlit EXR CMOS sensor, 3inch screen, built in GPS and compass in the camera.
Pros: Soft touch finish, Good front and rear grip, 20x optical zoom lens, RAW mode available, EXR D-Range Priority boosts dynamic range, EXR High ISO / Low noise reduces noise, Manual controls, Good colour reproduction
Cons: Video performance poor - poor focus, and image stabilisation, Spongey video button, Short battery life when using GPS
Excerpt: Unlike its recent predecessors, it’s not a small update: this latest model cranks up the specification by squeezing a 20x optical zoom lens into the small-bodied design.
Pros: Offers lots for the money, 20x optical zoom, brighter lens at telephoto end than similar competitors, offers raw shooting
Cons: Lens flare issue is still a problem (as per F660 model), image quality a little soft, battery life isn’t great, sensor-based stabilisation should be lens-based by now, overexposure isn’t uncommon
