Summary

Our Score:

7

User Score:

A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size images at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced for bandwidth purposes to let you see the full image, and a series of crops taken from original full resolution images at a range of ISO settings have been included in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

----

This is the full frame at minimum ISO.

----

64 ISO, no image noise but the image could be a bit sharper.

----

Still no noise at 100 ISO.

----

There is a bit of mid-range noise at 200 ISO, but image quality is still pretty good.

----

400 ISO isn't much worse, and the picture would print well.

----

The noise reduction has scrubbed out a lot of fine detail at 800 ISO.

----

Image quality at 1600 ISO is quite poor, but the colours are still clear.

----

This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

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!)
