Review of Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR 16MP Digital Camera w/3.5" Touchscreen
6 August 2012
Summary: Today for review I have the Fujifilm FinePix 16MP Camera and it was provided by our friends at Geeks.com . The camera is specifically the Z900EXR model which features a 3.5” touchscreen on the back instead of your normal LCD you’d find there. It seems everything is going touch these days so why not cameras. I have to start this is off with the fact that I’m just very much impressed with this camera.
Pros: Excellent battery life, Very well made camera, Touchscreen, Decent pictures, Simple to use, Great for beginners but with advanced options
Cons: Touchscreen can be overly sensitive at times, Funky on/off switch, Auto mode can be picky at times as to how it works
Summary: The Fujifilm Z900’s asking price of just over £200 is similar to that of rival compacts, such as Panasonic’s FX77 . Although image quality between the two is similar, the Panasonic just has the edge when the lighting is good, while the Fujifilm Z900 is the better option for low-light shooting. In many other respects the two do well to match each other, so if you’re interested in one you should probably add the other to your shortlist too.
Pros: Good high-sensitivity results, detailed and responsive touchscreen, slim body, fast focusing
Cons: Colours a little flat on standard mode, position of lens, processing artefacts visible at 100%
Excerpt: Speaking of which, there's a saying that if something is too good to be true then it probably is. So why do we have the Z900EXR sitting in front of us? What are its faults? The specification looks extremely impressive. Without touching it, from the front it looks like the lower specification Z series of cameras. The lens sits in the top left of the camera with a large plate of metal sliding over it to protect it and to also power the camera on or off.
Excerpt: The Z900EXR has been available for a couple of months and almost escaped our attention, but now that it's available for just £130, it warrants a closer look. We were bowled over by Fujifilm's EXR technology when we first encountered it in the F200EXR . It turned the issue of megapixel one-upmanship on its head by being either a 12-megapixel camera (for those who are impressed by big numbers) or a 6-megapixel camera (for those who don't like excessively noisy photos),...
Conclusion: A higher resolution than its predecessor (though from the same size sensor), HDMI output, Full HD video and use of the zoom when recording are all notable improvements over the Z800EXR, which a year ago we were recommending as a best buy for those looking for a competent “auto everything” point and shoot. Of course the market has moved on since then and we now expect a lot of bells and whistles for our bucks.
Pros: Very reasonable asking price, good quality build, operation is as simple as slide open the faceplate and shot (or record), easy to use and well implemented touchscreen interface, Full HD video with stereo sound and use of zoom
Cons: Common pocket camera imaging issues such as pixel fringing, lacks much in the way of a handgrip to prevent occasional camera shake because of the slimline proportions
Summary: Fujifilm FinePix Z900EXR è una fotocamera digitale compatta equipaggiata con sensore EXR-CMOS da 16 megapixel, diaplay LCD da 3,5 pollici con supporto agli input multitouch, uscita video HDMI e possibilità di registrare video FUll HD 1080p
