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?
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
Summary: The stylish travel zoom that's big on features, small on price
Pros: Excellent build quality, 20x optical zoom lens, Raw shooting capability, Full HD movies, Manual controls, The build quality of this camera is excellent; likewise the number of high-end features it has to offer, all for a very reasonable price.
Cons: Noise isn't well controlled, GPS drains the battery, Sluggish when shooting raw, Image quality at higher ISO sensitivities shows room for improvement and the GPS system puts a real strain on battery life.
Fujifilm combines style, versatility and high quality picture-taking ability in the FinePix F770EXR

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.
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
Conclusion: Even though the Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR is a more budget travel zoom camera than much of the recent competition it has a load of features on offer. Really decent features too: GPS, raw shooting, EXR modes, and we could go on. But we’d really like to see a lens-based image stabilisation system in the next incarnation and, despite "sensor improvements" the overall image quality won’t cut it when it comes to fine detail work.
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
Excerpt: The F770EXR is an extremely handsome camera. Its matt black rubber-like texture looks and feels luxurious, and with the help of its curved handgrip it sits comfortably in the hand. GPS is built in, as is a 20x zoom lens, 1080p video capture and full manual control, so it isn’t lacking in features. The controls make a great first impression too, with a wheel to adjust settings and a mode dial that's firmer than the one on the cheaper F660EXR.
