Fujifilm A900 Reviews

GoodGearGuide reviews the Fujifilm FinePix A900 and writes;
“Colour response was good with excellent white balance adjustment and accurate hues..Image noise wasn’t a problem at ISO 100 or 200, but it did begin to rear its head at ISO 400 and onwards.. FujiFilm’s FinePix A900 won’t suit experienced photographers, but if all you’re after is a basic point and shoot model without the bells and whistles it may satisfy your needs. ”

Cameras.UK reviews the Fujifilm FinePix A900 and writes;
“In terms of picture quality the Finepix A900 is roughly in line with expectations. At this price level you are not guaranteed brilliant photos every click, but the camera is capable of decent snapshots, especially in daylight… The Fuji Finepix A900 is one of the easiest digital cameras on the market. It really is a no fuss and no frills digital camera. ”

CNET reviews the Fujifilm FinePix A900 and writes;
“The good: A 9-megapixel camera; nice lens; accepts both xD and SD memory cards. The bad: Slow performance; heavy processing artifacts; strangely placed manual controls and settings. The bottom line: This camera puts 9-megapixel stills into an affordable price range, but only if you can put up with its slow speed and confusing quirks.”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Fujifilm FinePix A900 and writes;
“The quality of its 9M fine images is good for an entry-level consumer model. Outdoor shooting produced images that had good exposure and color saturation. The image noise was significantly less than the previous model on outdoor shots, however, there was still a significant amount in our indoor portraits (where the camera selected a higher ISO setting).”

Fujifilm A900 Press Release

Valhalla, NY, February 22, 2007 – Entry-level just took on a whole new meaning, as FUJIFILM U.S.A. Inc. today announced the launch of the eight-MegaPixel FinePix A820 and nine-MegaPixel FinePix A900. Designed specifically for the first-time digital camera buyer and consumers seeking an affordable, easy-to-operate upgrade to their current digital camera, Fujifilm’s FinePix A820 and A900 are loaded with features usually reserved for more advanced models. Both incorporate Fujifilm’s signature Super CCD sensor technology, a 4x Optical Zoom lens and feature ISO levels of up to ISO 800.

ollowing in the footsteps of Fujifilm’s more advanced digital cameras, the FinePix A820 and A900 both shoot with light sensitivities of up to ISO 800 at full resolution. These higher light sensitivities enable the user to shoot with faster shutter speeds, which lessen the likelihood of blurry pictures caused by a moving subject or the shake of an unsteady hand. To make it easy for consumers to achieve blur-free results, the FinePix A820 and A900 feature a Picture Stabilization mode in the dial setting. This easy-to-identify setting automatically chooses the correct light sensitivity and best-matching shutter speed, producing the highest quality digital pictures without blur and the noise often associated with high sensitivity photographs.
