Showing 1-10 of 19
Resent the fact that detailed instructions are not included

Summary: I bought the camera to upgrade and improve my minimal photography skills, and I think it has great potential, but the big flaw as far as I'm concerned is the fact that it is loaded with bells and whistles but it comes without instructions as to how to use them (other than brief, basic get-started tips). I consider it a very poor business practice of the Fuji company to not include detailed instructions explaining how to use this camera.
Summary: I may have missed the instructions, but I am getting LOUSY color from my pics and can find no way to keep the zoom from going to digital. I only use the optical on any zoom. No matter what the manufacturer says, the digital zoom is shaky and grainy. Keep in mind I print my pictures so maybe if you only keep them digitized it won't matter...?

Summary: Would have loved a more detailed instruction book for the numerous settings on this camera - the booklet is awful. There are a LOT of settings in the camera that most people would be intimidated by. However, there are AUTO settings for the beginner, so anyone can really use this camera for simple shooting.
Summary: I can only get the battery compartment open after struggling with it for minutes at a time. It should only take a slight pressure to slide to the side and flip open. I press and squeeze and almost drop the camera, try a different angle, etc, etc. I haven't even charged the battery...it's going back. I have a Panasonic Lumix, about five years old, and everything is as precise as watch works..this feels like a piece of plastic junk by comparison.
Summary: Nice compact camera. quick response time. Drawbacks: Battery life is much too short. Would also preferred to have a view finder rather than the screen for determining the photo to be taken. that would save on battery life and help in bright light situations and would also be quicker when taking pictures.
Summary: I played with this camera and promptly returned it. If you are just looking for something that gets ok pictures, this would be fine. I found the picture quality to be very soft - the pictures almost looked like an excellent painting but not so much a great photograph if that makes sense. The pictures just werent crisp. And this was on a bright, sunny day. If you are used to getting very crisp pictures, you will be disappointed.
Summary: I have been a photographer for over 30 years and have had many different types of cameras. I bought this camera to take with me on an upcoming overseas trip where I didn't want to carry my Nikon DSLR. I photographed with the F770EXR in several different settings to test its picture taking capabilities. I will update this review when I return from my trip. This seems like a very well built camera. I like the feel and the size is perfect to fit in my pocket.
Summary: I've owned the F770EXR for just over a year and taken almost 12000 photos with it. Out of the box it was impressive. Good zoom range. Good low light performance. However within the first couple of months the poor build quality started to show, with the lens cover starting to play up.
