These are my views on the FinePix F700 Zoom, by Fujifilm. As part of Fujifilm's Fourth Generation Super CCD SR technology, this digital camera is an excellent buy and one I would recommend to anyone wishing to purchase the latest in digital photography. The quality of pictures is exceptional ? however you would expect this, considering the price. I would say that they are almost ?film like?, with excellent tone depth. When I first purchased the camera I was worried that I wouldn?t be able to use it properly and get the best out of my new purchase. However the camera is relatively straightforward to use and the few problems I did have working it, were resolved by taking a quick look in the instructions manual. Included in the price is software that can be used to edit and modify your photos. I found this very useful, as I could crop and remove unwanted bits that spoilt the photo, before printing them out. Overall I would say that the camera is very durable, takes excellent pictures with great detail and is a great buy ? I use it for taking pictures whilst out on the town and I have built up a brilliant gallery of photos. One slight problem is that it only just fits in my jeans pocket?. which makes it feel a little uncomfortable. Then again the pockets in my jeans aren?t the biggest!
Well, well, this camera certainly generates some fairly diverse reviews. It would appear to be a love it or hate situation with little in-between. I've had mine about a month now and have taken hundreds of photographs and I'm on the side of the "love it's". Having read the magazine reviews in the UK they are generally quite full of praise - some very much so - I think it was Digital Photography magazine that gave it 93%. Personally I like the pictures produced by Fuji and this camera does a great job in improving the dynamic range with lovely colourful pictures - better than my last camera which was a Konica KD-500Z. I particularly like the way you can use the manual controls to produce the effects you want. I find that it does a terrific job at portrait pictures and also landscapes. Battery life seems good and with a 512k Xpicture card it can take 320 photos at the highest setting (excepting raw). The video is also excellent at 30 frames per second and a resolution of 640x480 - good enough to show on your TV. Oh yes and let's not forget that it takes pretty good macro photos as well.
