Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd - Test shots - Full-res crops

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


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.


The level of detail isn't great even for 8MP, but this was shot on auto ISO at 400.


The lens produces virtually zero barrel distortion at wide angle. The next two images are partial crops from this frame.


Centre sharpness is reasonably good, although I've seen better.


Corner sharpness is also good, but there is a little chromatic aberration.


No pincushion distortion at the telephoto end.

Bought this camera on the basis of this review...

What a big mistake...Its rubbish..

grainy noisy pics across all settings and pictures distorted

dark shades are extremly blotchy

sent back to Fujifilm Uk for 'repairs' returned with no noticible inprovment at all

Response time from service center is horrendous!!

our old Finepics F810 far better

Dont waste your money on this one.

I wish I'd seen Ratanje's comments before I asked for this as a present last year as the comments are spot on. This was supposed to be an upgrade from an old Konica Minolta Dimage Xg (another compact folded lens type camera), and I wish I hadn't bothered: grainy photos, distorted pictures, a big let down.

I'm on here now looking for a replacement as I can't stand using it, looking at my old Dimage and asking why had I ever bothered 'upgrading'.

Don't buy this, even as a used camera (unless you see mine on e-bay, that is!)
