Stylish, ultra-compact 8-megapixel camera with advanced features
30 November 2011
Summary: With the Z100fd, Fujifilm offers its most advanced "Z" series camera yet. It is a small and slender 8-megapixel camera with eye-catching design and color options. The fully internal 5X optical zoom means no annoying lens barrel protruding from the camera.
Pros: The Fuji Super CCD HR imager, Large, high resolution 2.7-inch display, Nicely styled, easy to use, 5X internal optical zoom, Dual image stabilization almost eliminates blur
Cons: Addition of IR only marginally useful as IR is becoming rare, Diagonally gliding lens cover a bit gimmicky and adds to thickness, No zoom in movie mode, Apparently no voice recording mode
Summary: Despite being only 19.8mm thick, the 8-MegaPixel FinePix Z100fd is packed with state-of-the-art technologies and features. These include a mid-range Fujinon 5x optical zoom lens (equivalent to a 36mm-180mm), a high- resolution 2.7" (230k pixel) LCD with a reinforced glass coating for scratch-free...
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd is an excellent point-and-shoot. Experienced photographers might be disappointed by the paucity of manual controls, but a first-class face detection system, capable automatic settings and a large screen make the Z100fd good value for money -- and it looks great
Pros: Excellent Face Detection 2.0; great looks; fun scroll wheel.
Cons: No real manual control; faceplate can open in your pocket.
Conclusion: This is a fairly standard pocket sized digital camera. The main attraction is likely to be the extra capacity of the zoom when compared to other digital cameras. I also think that this is an attractive camera too.
Pros: Ease of use - choice of colours - large internal memory - good at higher ISO settings
Cons: Nothing really stands out as a serious problem
Conclusion: The Fuji FinePix Z100fd provides a host of neat features and a good lens with a very useful 36-180mm (35mm equiv.) zoom range that helps pack in detail; the only really bothersome elements being those focusing foibles and a tad more noise than I’d expect given Fuji’s usually superb performance in...
Pros: Build and design, lightweight, fast operation, good flash exposures, good low ISO image quality, simple to use
Cons: No optical viewfinder, noisy images over ISO 800, AF performance in low light, AF performance with smaller subjects, screen flare in bright conditions
Summary: Die Fujifilm Finepix Z100fd ist eine großartige Schnappschusskamera. Erfahrene Fotografen werden vielleicht von den dürftigen manuellen Einstellmöglichkeiten enttäuscht sein. Doch die erstklassige Gesichtserkennung, die nützlichen Automatikeinstellungen und das große Display sprechen durchaus für...
