Summary

Our Score:

6

A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.

Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture. I hope they're not going to cover the whole front with that green stuff; what will I photograph?

----

The J12 actually captures a fair amount of fine detail, but the picture looks slightly soft.

----

The lens produces quite significant barrel distortion at wide angle.

----

Even in the centre of the frame the image lacks sharpness.

----

There is severe blurring in the corners ofthe frame.

Don't buy a fujifilm!!! They do not honour their warranty!! I recently bought a J12 and the flash stopped working and they vioded the warranty. They said that there was a dent on the corner (that was not there when I sent it) and that the packaging was not damaged when they received it. Now it is going to cost me $25.00 to get the camera back (already paid $10 to ship it as fragile) just to see what 'damage' they are talking about. Still waiting for the pictures of the damage that hey promised. They now offer a 2 year warranty but really don't intended on honouring. I will never buy another fujifilm product!

Had the exact same problem you had. When discussing this problem with collegues at work, I was shocked to learn that 2 other people had this exact experience. I guess fujifilm discovered a loophole (lies,lies,lies) to not honour their crappy products. BEWARE OF FUJIFILM. Their products are defective and they will not honour the warranty. That is their guarantee

I love this camera. I got it a year ago and it's still pretty good. The focus isn't that bad, and there are quite a lot of different modes and stuff. It's very simple. I suppose I am only 14 and I don't use it for proffesional use or anything, but its really great for just taking snaps of friends or outings or whatever. I would recommend you buy this camera if you are just going to use it for like normal but not proffesional photos, and maybe it is suited for a younger audience as it is very simple to use. I have had it for a year now and it's stioll great, i've had no problems with it apart from when it got wet in the rain and I had to soak it in rice :/ but yeh.
