Cameras.UK reviews the Fujifilm FinePix A700 (rating: 74/100) and writes;
“The most surprising photo is the indoor portrait. I would have been pleased to take this photo with a far more expensive camera. It is taken under artificial light in a darkened room. The Finepix A700 has handled this test well and outperforms many cameras. The photo is sharply focused and I also like the levels of brightness in the shot…If you are looking for a simple, inexpensive digital camera then the Fuji Finepix A700 is likely to fit the bill. Considering its low price tag I was impressed with the quality of the photos I took with the camera. It is also one of the most easy to use cameras on the market. “
TechTree reviews the Fujifilm FinePix A700 and writes;
“The images shot in daylight from the Nikon S9 appear to be decent enough, but the moment you switch to a location with low light the image quality just takes a dive to hell. Noise creeps up from all possible parts of the image and it’s so high on higher ISO settings that you could actually hear it (pun intended.) We tried recording video in all modes (with and without sound) and, although the sound could have been better, the results were all well average but nothing exceptional. Overall, the camera looks like an S-series member, but surely doesn’t behave like one. I’m sure you can give slip to this one. Ciao. “
TrustedReviews have reviewed the Fujifilm FinePix A700 where they rate the camera 6/10 and write;
“Fortunately the lack of features or performance is compensated by decent picture quality. The Fujinon lens provides good edge-to-edge sharpness, although it does suffer from some uneven barrel distortion at wide angle. The 7.3 megapixel HR sensor produces a good level of detail, roughly the same as some other similarly-powered cameras I’ve tested recently…The FinePix A700 is so lacking in features and performance it’s hard to believe it comes from the same company that makes the F31fd and S9600. As budget-priced snappers go though, it isn’t too bad. It’s well made, incredibly easy to use, and is capable of producing reasonably good results under normal circumstances. Non-existent low-light focusing, terrible movie mode and low maximum sensitivity are handicaps however.”
