  • Excerpt: The Fuji MX-2900 is Fuji's answer to the Nikon Coolpix 950 and Olympus C-2000Z. Aimed squarely at photographers looking for a 2+ Megapixel digicam with enough manual features to be flexible and creative. Specifications are impressive, slightly higher resolution than its competitors at 1800 x 1200 (other 2 megapixel digicams are typically 1600 x 1200) which of course gives it the more 35mm like image aspect ratio of 3:2.
  • Pros: Fairly good image quality, easily within 90% of the top of the league, Sharp images with good resolution, Flexible flash settings, External flash hot-shoe, Good manual features with full manual (if limited to two apertures) mode, Good battery life from supplied rechargeable lithium battery, Automatically stores camera settings for next power-up, Great ergonomics, good weight balance, Tram-lines in Auto mode, Well positioned tripod mount
  • Cons: TIFF format cannot be opened in Photoshop (must be opened and re-saved in another application), Slow processing, Noisy focus / zoom mechanism, Odd zoom lever, Terrible viewfinder, No ISO control, Limited low light ability, Limited shutter speed range in Shutter Priority (1/8s is slowest shutter speed), Visible noise on most images, Clunky "press OK to store image" sequence, Big, bulky and weighty

  • Excerpt: Fuji gave me all the goodies with this camera. In addition to the camera, I also got a 16MB SmartMedia card, a Flashpath adapter (which I didn't use since I don't have a floppy drive!), and a very nice Fuji branded SmartMedia USB card reader (more on this below).The Fuji MX-2900 is a very well-designed, good looking camera, with some frustrating flaws. On the plus size, the design is attractive--almost sexy.

Fujifilm MX-2900 Zoom

5 January 2000
  • Excerpt: Mit seinem derzeitigen Spitzenmodell schlägt der Hersteller eine Brücke zwischen seinen kompakten Freizeitkameras und professionell nutzbaren, opulent ausgestatteten Geräten. Dabei bleibt der Preis der gut ausgestatteten Kamera durchaus im Mittelfeld, wodurch die MX-2900 Zoom ein interessantes Angebot zu sein scheint. Wie sich die Kamera im praktischen Einsatz bewährt, lesen Sie im digitalkamera.de Praxis-Test.
  • Pros: viele Möglichkeiten zur Bildbeeinflussung, Lithiumionen-Akku
  • Cons: optischer Sucher unpräzise, nur zwei Blendenstufen, keine Anzeige von Blende und Belichtungszeit, Serienbilder nur in niedriger Auflösung
