A real good point & shot camera
3 weeks ago
Summary: I like it because it is a powerful and versatile camera, well constructed, intuitive and make stunning pictures. Just one item to make it better nex time: the power of the flash ( even this is a built-in flash, but can be powerful anyway)
Summary: This is a great camera that takes really good pictures. I gave it 4 stars b/c it is very complicated and just about need a manual to use it. The price was also great but I had to shop around for a week to get the price, well below $200. Once I learn how to use this camera in the "stupid" mode I am sure I will love it. Yes I would definitely recommend this camera to a friend, providing the price is below $200.
Summary: I bought this particular camera because it had the fastest shuttter speed I could find on a point and shoot in my price range. I take tons of pictures of my toddlers so my main requirement was that the pictures not be blurry. I still have to put the camera on shutter speed priority and use the flash, but that works like a charm. The one complaint that I have about the camera is one others have also mentioned - the auto focus during video recording is terrible.
Summary: I love the camera but the instructions that come with it are very limited and the on-line one is more than 100 pages. Also I can't find a case to fit it that will also hold an additional SD card and Battery. Other than that I love the camera.
Summary: The camera does have very good resolution and nice features. For travelling if you don't want a gadget bag to hold your lenses & accessories, this is the camera to consider. Your pictures can be as good as a low-end SLR but without some of the refinements. Compare to other brands with similar cameras (Nikon, Sony) Fujifilm is very price competitive. You're not buying an SLR so you don't have the option of attaching F2.8 lenses or super-wide fish-eye lenses.
Pros: 1. Price: the price you're paying you have a solid camera with good resolution., 2. Lens: average aperture range 3.5 - 5.3 which is sufficient for most situations. On SLRs you can buy 2.8 lenses at a premium. 20x zoom has a good range. Get good enlargements at ISO 800 or less., 3. Focus: fast and accurate., 4. Stabilizer: works nicely. Warning for possible hand-vibration nice feature., 5. Macro: works very well instead of paying a premium for a macro lens with stabili...
Cons: 1. On their brochure the newer F800 supposed to offer better low-light capabilities., 2. Multiple exposure available on the F800 but not here., 3. Shutter speeds down to 8s sufficient but not as refined as some cameras with a B or T option available to increase exposure time as needed., 4. Focus: you can set aperture & shutter manually. Would prefer to have a button for MF as well. Certain instances you'd find locking your focus on a fixed distance faster than waiting...
Summary: i am making a trip to alaska in a few months and wanted a camera i could take pictures from a distance with as well as close up. The 16 mega pixel is amazing, very detailed pictures. As far as distance goes the same, i can take pictures not quite 2/10th of a mile away and still get some very good clear detailed pictures, i took a picture of the moon at about 6pm and it came out very clear, i have tried pictures in the dark knowing what i was looking at before i took the...
Summary: Owning the Fuji X100 I expected somehow a similar satisfying quality of the FinePix F770EXR. The F770EXR does OK under normal conditions. In bright sunlight the EXR mode however is not balancing white well. The zoom is a nice to have but 20x requires a really, really stable hand as well as the object not moving otherwise the result is fuzzy. Of course no comparison to the X100.
Excerpt: I've had the camera for only a week and have used it outdoors and indoors and it takes great pictures. My only gripe with it is that the focus is quite slow at catching up with real life. It's slow to focus if you're zooming in and out while in movie mode. Still, a great improvement on my previous fujipix camera which couldn't use the zoom while in filming mode at all.
Pros: Light, zooms long distances and while filming
Cons: The focus is very slow at catching up with the zoom
