Summary

Our Score:

6

Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These ISO test images are shot indoors using reflected natural light for maximum consistency.

----

This is the full frame at 64 ISO. As you can see the auto white balance as not gone well.

----

Despite the lack of contrast or saturation, there is very little visible noise in this 64 ISO shot.

----

Slightly more noise at 100 ISO, with some blotchy colour patches.

----

200 ISO, and the noise reduction system has cleaned the image up somewhat.

----

The blotches are back at 400 ISO, and they've brought their mates with them.

----

At 800 ISO a lot of fine detail has been lost.

----

1600 ISO, and despite the noise the colour balance is actually not too bad.

----

This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

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.
