Advantages: Brilliant Product!
I'm a student and cut back wherever possible, but cheap isn't always best. I learnt this a few months ago after buying a £30 camera from Amazon that turned out to be awful quality and worthy for the bin.
After a while of saving up, i'd reached a £150 budget and decided to buy myself a new, more expensive, this time decent quality camera. I looked around for a while and read reviews online, and after seeing the Fujifilm Finepix Z90 review and picture quality, set off in search of one. This time, i wanted to buy one instore so that if it was awful quality, i'd have the receipt. I ended up seeing them on display in my local Sainsburys, and after seeing how lightweight and stylish it was in the flesh (so to speak!) decided this was the camera for me. Although it was expensive, it was below my budget and seemed good quality, so i was happy with paying the £130 price tag.
The Fujifilm Finepix Z90 has a massive 14 mega(million) pixels (most cameras on the market are 6-10 megapixels) and includes a 5x optical zoom.
The camera has a very modern, sleek appearence and the fact it's available in so many colours makes it that bit more attractive as there's something for everyone. I chose the black, as it's much more sleek. I was tempted to get the purple but decided against it because i think sometimes coloured cameras can look a bit tacky. The other colours available were red, silver, dark blue and flamingo pink.
This camera's actually one of the best i've ever seen, let alone owned! I'm really pleased with it and the features are incredible. The 3 inch LCD touch screen on the back of the camera makes it unique, as it's the first touch screen camera i'm aware of. The screen is used when you're getting the position of the camera right or telling the person you're about to photograph how to pose. Looking at the screen shows you precisely how the picture will look if you take the photo at that very second. The colours and shades on the camera are all clear and accurate, as some cameras display red as pink etc. This one doesn't and the pictures are just amazing quality.
The touch screen is just right and isn't overly sensetive and responds well, any fingerprint marks are easily wiped off with a dry, soft cloth.
The camera has a range of features that it states in the instruction book which has plenty of instructions on how to activate them. One of my favourites is the ability to edit pictures ready to be uploaded onto the internet - the editing options include resizing, removing red-eye, cropping, adjusting the brightness and generally touching the picture up. Once edited, it's possible to upload the pictures on to Facebook via my camera via the web upload option. I'm still not completely understanding of this and am in the process of learning!
As the camera is also able to record HD 720p movies, it's possible to load these on to Youtube. I have various videos on my camera already and they're amazing quality, i tried uploading one to youtube a few days ago but as it was taking so long i gave up after 35minutes, but to be fair the video was 27 minutes long and i'm impatient! The movies are in the .AVI format making them viewable in Windows media player once uploaded to my laptop.
The camera also has auto focus feature built in to it which is extremely handy and simple to use (activated by half pressing the shutter button, and once ready to take the photo fully press the shutter button) and keeps intense focus on a moving object ensuring it is kept in perfect focous. I find this is handy when taking pictures of my dogs running or playing. There's no blurriness to the pictures and they capture every detail, even slobber flying everywhere!
Other features include:
- Auto Flash
- Image Stabilizer
- Face Detection
The dimentions of the camera, according to the box, are:
Width: 95.4mm x Height: 56.9mm x Depth: 20.1mm.
Overall i'd reccomend it for anyone who wants a camera that's great quality - it's a camera for everyone who enjoys photography and would be brilliant for family pictures and holiday snaps due to the brilliantly high quality pictures it produces. It's easy to slip into my handbag and is sturdy but lightweight, discreet, and considering the amount of features it has, in my opinion it was worth every penny!
It comes with instructions, but no batteries (1 Lithium ion battery is required) and no memory card. I've got an 8GB memory card which i bought seperately and i also bought the battery seperately, which lasts usually up to 8 hours after constant use.
Available online and instore at many shops including Currys, PC World, Amazon, etc.
