Qixnap, DP Review
26 March 2014
Excerpt: I got one on the cheap. The red one was 25 bucks less than the black one and I am a cheapskate, so red it was. Fits in a shirt pocket well and it didn't hurt the wallet much at all. It seems to be a bit more than I expected for a $125 shooter. Not great at focusing and the flash seems to be good for about 5 feet or less. Its a bit slow to save a full size Raw picture and the lens is nothing special.
Summary: The optical zoom on this camera is pretty awesome as is the ability to shoot in RAW. There tends to be more noise at ISOs above 100 than I like, but for the price it's a great point and shoot camera.
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...
