Showing 1-10 of 25
Once again poor reliablility.
13 June 2014
Summary: This is the second and final FinePix camera I've owned. The first camera worked well until the third year when numerous brand new batteries failed to provide adequate power for more the three pictures. The failing seemed like a deliberate design flaw, as many others reported the same issue. This camera, I used perhaps 10 to 15 times before the zoom out stopped consistently working. Changing to panoramic mode would reset it but my patience is at an end with this company.
Excerpt: Purchase my F770 from Focus on imaging after I was told the latest super zoom had been delayed due to the colapse of Jessops and the huge stock piles of stock placed on one side for them. The super zoom is exactly that 28 - 500+, the idea was to take it to a Charlotte Bobcats vs Miami Heat game and get some close ups from our nose bleed seats and not take my Nikon 7000 for it to be confiscated!
Summary: I liked the fact that I could take several shots one after the other without having to wait. The camera seemed well made and the controlls were easy to get to. The pictures were not as sharp as my old fuji, and it did not take good pictures in low light. I have had 3 fujifilm cameras and really liked them, that is the reason I bought this one.I wasn't satisfied and Amazon refunded my money promply.
Summary: I like the camera but I just had it stop working. I returned the camera to Fuji which was delivered on 10/23. They send me an email on 11/05 telling me they just receive it. It is now 11/19 and they still have the camera. I even opted to just have a remanufactured camera sent to me so I would not have to wait for repairs. I would avoid Fuji produts based on how slow their warranty services are.
Summary: Fujifilm 770EXR looks very promising on paper. It got that enormous 20X zoom, GPS and many other controls. I have mine nearly a month, must say, I have a mixed opinion. If you are looking for a point and shoot camera, and you expect sharp pictures at most shots, than this is NOT your camera.
Excerpt: - overal good "traveling" camera Problems: - I have 2 raw photos with scratches, i'm thinking this could be a defective camera - Lot's of noise in low light pics, even with low ISO - macro photo with zoom has a long minimum focus distance - no auto flash, need to eject it first - only 3 options for aperture - lot's of funcions but too dispersive between many modes - not light like my previus Canon powershot - low battery duration - face recognition does not work propely,...
Summary: 4-stars for camera design and still image quality, 1 star for video. I have tested and compared images, video, features, and usability for all the top ultra-zoom compacts including Fuji F770EXR/F750EXR, Canon SX260HS, Sony HX9V, Panasonic ZS-15 and ZS-19/20. This was the last camera I compared and I was expecting to really like it as Image Quality is my first priority criteria, followed by video, then features/usability.
Summary: On paper, this camera seems to be everything I was looking for. Compact size, Raw capabilities, ultra long zoom, 16 MP, large screen, hd video, etc. However, I think this camera has fallen short in many areas. I am a photographer who owns Canon 5d mark II and 50d. I use mainly L glass lens. However, I have owned many point and shoot cameras from Pansonic Lumix to Canon elphs. Even the digital cameras I have from 5 years ago take better pics than this camera.
Summary: Nothing at all wrong with the camera, very sturdy. I downloaded the Manual expecting instructions on how to use it. The Manual, all 119 pages, goes on about what the camera can do, but no instruction on how to use it. Very disappointed, sent it back. You have to be technically minded.
Summary: I have only just tried my camera on a day out at a bird reserve. I took approximately 250 photos and the zoom on the camera is very very impressive. The problem was that it drained the battery which was in the camera and even when I put a spare, fully charged, battery in - that too drained in about half an hour. I bought this camera for a special holiday later in the year.
