Summary: The 10-megapixel FinePix Z33WP is Fujifilm's entry into the waterproof camera space where it joins a growing number of offerings from Olympus, Pentax, Panasonic, Canon and a number of specialty manufacturers. The playfully styled camera is very small and light. That's in part because while it is waterproof, it doesn't claim to be freezeproof or shockproof as some of the competition does.
Pros: Waterproof to 10 feet, dustproof, Bright 2.7-inch LCD, Very small and light, Funky colors and styling, Inexpensive for a waterproof camera, One-touch movies
Cons: Basic 3X optical zoom that starts at 35mm, Only one underwater mode and no underwater white balance, Not freeze- or shockproof, 10-foot depth limit precludes most scuba
Excerpt: One look at the Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP and it's obvious that this camera is having more fun than you are. Fujifilm calls it the world's smallest waterproof camera, and they mean it. The Z33WP wraps up a 10.0 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom and a 2.7 inch LCD in a tiny water and dust-sealed body. Take a look at how it performed in and out of the water.
Pros: Small form factor, Nice overall image quality, Dust and water sealed
Cons: Noise at ISO 400 and above, Some chromatic aberration, Some lens flaws

12 June 2009

Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP Review is based on a production
model. All sample images are unretouched, except
where specified. The Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP is stylish, colorful, fun to use and doesn't mind getting wet all over. Plus it is ultra compact so it means you can keep it in your pocket or purse at all times ready to be used at the beach, boating on the lake or ocean, or swimming in the pool..
Summary: Conclusion: Whilst I was a little disappointed by the image quality – I was impressed by the cameras compact size, the stylish colours, waterproof features and low price – one of the main reasons why I bought it in the first place. If you don’t put a priority on image quality, and just want something you can take with you for a quick swim or holiday, then the Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP would make a good choice.
Pros: What I Don’t Like:, - No focus assist lamp, - Battery can be put in the wrong way round, - Vignetting / Purple fringing, - Scratches easily
Cons: View our Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP Sample Photo Gallery, Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP is available from, Amazon UK, .
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP looks so good that its comparatively low price is something of a surprise. Its performance doesn't match its looks, though. It's sluggish to use and delivers below-par definition. Note too that it's not shockproof or freezeproof.
Pros: Attractive styling and design, Decent value for money
Cons: Below-average definition, Sluggish playback mode, Modest zoom range
Conclusion: La FinePix Z33WP de Fujifilm puede ser una de las cámaras de fotografía submarina más baratas del mercado; pero su bajo precio se refleja en su calidad de imagen y en su interfaz deslucida.
Pros: Relativamente económica. Resistente al agua hasta los 3 m.
Cons: Imágenes desenfocadas. Carece de estabilización de la imagen. La LCD es difícil de visualizar en condiciones soleadas. La interfaz de usuario parece anticuada.
