Read the full Fujifilm FinePix SL300 review

The Fujifilm SL300 is a competitively priced 30x superzoom that, on paper at least, looks to offer very good value. That said, the old maxim about getting what you pay for rings true and while the SL300’s large optical zoom and manual controls provide plenty of flexibility, the camera does cut some corners and come up short in other areas. While the plasticky build quality and limiting of video capture to 720p HD are both just about understandable given the price, the inconsistent image quality it delivers is less forgivable.

Only 5 sample images? Where are the 100% crops at different ISO settings, chromatic aberration and purple fringing tests, pincushion and barrel distortion, features like burst mode, bracketing etc....

Should we just take your word on it?
- "When the camera gets it right though, the results can be quite pleasing."?
Really? So the camera has a mind on its own? Like, yeah today I am in a good mood and I will take pleasing pictures, but don't touch me over the weekend. Or is it maybe the reviewer that didn't have enough experience under his/her belt to test a digital camera properly? Not everyone can write a review about photography, and this is why.
