Fujifilm FinePix Z1

PC Magazine
9 September 2006
  • Conclusion: The Z1's stylish looks, easy-to-use features, and large LCD make for a good shooting experience. But in our hands-on tests, image quality wasn't very consistent.
  • Pros: Very portable. Large 2.5-inch LCD. Fuji's Real Photo Technology decreases blur in low-light shots.
  • Cons: Pricey. Boosting the ISO quickly can compromise image quality.

  • Conclusion: Fujifilm FinePix Z1 - First impression extremely positive The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 digital camera has a beautiful appearance. Nicely finished matte black of solid quality which certainly won't give you a 'plastic' feeling when holding the camera. Despite the stiff design, without handgrip, the Fujifilm Z1 lies comfortably in your hand.

5.1 megapixel digital camera with special F button

Consumer Electronics Net
6 April 2006
  • Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 is a 5.1 megapixel digital camera in the $300 price range. While it competes with other digital cameras that feature higher megapixels, higher resolutions don't always equate to better value. The design is well implemented, with ample use of metal in the body as opposed to plastic, and it is an absolute joy to use. Specification The FinePix Z1 is built around a 5.1 megapixel, 2.5-inch Super CCD HR image sensor.

  • Excerpt: The Z1 has a robust feel to it, mainly due to its metal-body construction, but also because of its fullheight metal front panel, which slides across to protect the lens and flash, turning the camera off in the process.

Fujifilm Finepix Z1 Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review
5 September 2005
  • Excerpt: There comes a time in every review author's life that the word sexy' is used to convey the feeling you get by touching, holding, or simply looking at a particular product. I've seen it used with sports cars, audio speakers, and televisions. I've refrained from using it to date and I simply can't waste my one opportunity on a camera. But dare I say, this thing is damn fine looking.

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 slowly won me over. At first, aside from the looks, I wasn't very excited about it. But after using it for a couple of months, and looking hard at the images I made with it, I feel pretty good about it. Image quality is good, although I think using the Photoshop Unsharp Mask filter is a necessity if you want your images to look their best.
  • Pros: Very compact, Good image quality with great color, Great LCD display, Durable, reinforced metal case and LCD display, Excellent battery life
  • Cons: No optical viewfinder, Minimal and hard to access exposure controls, No histogram display, Easy to obstruct lens with fingers, Slow shot-to-shot time, No tripod threads

  • Excerpt: The FinePix Z1 ($399) is Fuji's entry into the ultra-thin camera market. Using the same "folding lens optics" system as the Sony T series, Nikon Coolpix S1, and the Minolta X series, the Z1 is just 0.7 inches thick. The FinePix Z1 uses a 5.1 Megapixel SuperCCD HR sensor which allows for lower noise levels at high ISO sensitivities when compared to other cameras. Other features include a 2.5" LCD, VGA movie mode, and support for USB 2.0 High Speed.
  • Pros: Good photo quality, Compact, stylish body comes in silver and black, Can shoot at high ISOs better than competition, Handy natural light mode gives you sharper pictures without the flash (but noise levels will be higher), Large 2.5" LCD display; visible in bright outdoor light and dim indoor light, Robust performance, Excellent movie mode, USB 2.0 High Speed support (though see issue below)
  • Cons: Images seem a bit fuzzy; above average purple fringing and noise, Redeye, Camera dock required for using I/O ports, tripod, No optical viewfinder or AF-assist lamp, No continuous shooting mode, Manual controls would've been nice, Fairly weak flash, Battery life isn't great, Flimsy plastic door over battery/memory card compartment

Fuji Finepix Z1

Cameras

  • Conclusion: The Fuji Finepix Z1 is certainly up there amongst the best ultra compact digital cameras that I have tested. The picture quality is very pleasing and I am a big fan of the design. It is slightly more expensive than its rivals, but I would be prepared to pay the extra few pounds. One area I would like to see improved is the menu system.
  • Pros: Design and build quality, Picture quality
  • Cons: Menu system
