  • Excerpt: The FinePix S700 ($249) is Fuji's new entry-level ultra zoom camera. It replaces the FinePix S5200, and sits below the S6000fd, which was introduced last summer. The S700 lacks the SuperCCD sensor, face detection, and SLR-styling of the S6000fd, but it still has a plethora of features, including a 7 Megapixel CCD, 10X zoom lens, full manual controls, VGA movie mode, and more.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, low noise through ISO 400 (though see issues below), Good value for the money, 10X optical zoom in a solid, well-designed body, Gorgeous 2.5" LCD display has high resolution and fluid frame rate; good indoor/outdoor visibility, AF-assist lamp, good (but slow) low light focusing, Dual xD/SD memory card slot, Full manual controls, VGA movie mode with zoom and digital image stabilization, Battery life is well above average; uses AA batteries
  • Cons: Some corner blurriness, blown highlights, and purple fringing, Redeye a problem, Lens is slow at the wide-angle end, Disappointing continuous shooting modes, Sluggish shot-to-shot and image playback speeds, Poorly implemented manual focus feature, Electronic viewfinder is small, lacks diopter correction, Plastic tripod mount, No USB 2.0 High Speed support

  • Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix S700 would be a nice budget megazoom if it weren't hampered by mediocre performance and a frustrating design.
  • Pros: Low-noise, higher-ISO photos; broad set of manual controls; optical zoom operates in movie mode; runs on AA batteries.
  • Cons: Frustrating design; sluggish performance; no optical image stabilization.

Capturing pictures with quality approaching that of film, with the capability to capture 2,832 x 2,128 (6.03 million) recorded pixels, and dramatically increased dynamic range. The Fujifilm FinePix F700 is the first 6.2 million effective pixel (S-pixel: 3.1 million, R-pixel: 3.1 million) consumer digital camera on the market today.

Fujifilm FinePix S700 D-SLR camera

PC Advisor
29 August 2005
  • Summary: Fujifilm's FinePix S700 adds an SLR-style frame to the solid functionality of an advanced point-and-shoot. The Fujifilm FinePix S700's best traits are its long battery life, manual controls, 10X optical zoom, and image stabilization - not a bad combo in a D-SLR you should be able to pick up for around £130.
