DigicamReview reviews the Fujifilm FinePix F20 and writes;
“The camera is one of very few to include usable high ISO modes of ISO 1600 and ISO 2000, and noticably less noise than the competition at all ISO settings upto ISO 800..It has excellent responsiveness and is designed to be able to take great photos in almost every situation. For the price, I don’t think you can get a better camera! ”

ePhotozine reviews the Fujifilm FinePix F20 and writes;
“For a budget price camera, the Fuji F20 scored well on all accounts. Images are clear, retaining good detail, and, with the exception of the blues, the rendition of colours in the colour chart test were impressively accurate. The build of the camera is good and the design is stylish, not at all what you would expect from a lower-priced camera. ISO tests showed that while there was a lot of noise and detail loss in the highest setting, lower settings were acceptable, and remained relatively clear. Additionally, the F20 is easy to use, and an ideal starter camera for any newcomers to digital photography.”

TrustedReviews reviews the Fujifilm FinePix F20 and writes;
“Even with its exceptional low-light performance and battery duration, it is in picture quality that the F20 really shines. Exposure and colour rendition are flawless, and the excellent Fujinon f/2.8-5.0 lens produces pin-sharp images with tons of fine detail, with virtually no barrel distortion at the wide-angle end….In the FinePix F20 Fujifilm have a virtually perfect social snapshot camera. Its crisp performance, exceptional low-light capabilities, powerful flash, long-lasting battery and ease of use make it ideal for parties and social occasions, and its excellent image quality means that all those embarrassing photos of your drunken friends will be sharp, detailed and colourful.”

Steve’s Digicams have reviewed the Fujifilm FinePix F20 and write;
“I was pleased with the quality of our sample images when using 6-megapixel Fine mode. Our outdoor images are sharp, well exposed, and the colors look very nice…Bottom line – I was a bit surprised that Fuji only changed a few of the features from last year’s F30 model but was reminded of the old saying that “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That seems to be their thinking with their “F” series of 6- megapixel Super CCD HR models. That said, I feel the FujiFilm FinePix F20 is a nice, compact digicam that offers good performance, a durable all-metal body, great image quality, and numerous user-friendly exposure modes. This model also features a more appealing price tag of US$299 or less, yielding a better “bang for your buck” value than the previous model.”

PhotographyBlog have reviewed the Fujifilm FinePix F20 write;
“In terms of ISO performance, low light shots without flash start to visibly soften at ISO1600 when viewed at 100% (the effect nearer to a watercolour than a photo). Obviously at full ISO2000 this is more pronounced. Then again, if you don’t intend to churn out poster-sized hard copies it’s a trade off (against not getting the shot at all) I’d be happy to live with. Arguably, if you are taking portraiture, some smoothing of detail is not necessarily a bad thing. …To sum up, a recommendation and certainly one of the most successful marriages of price to performance I’ve seen in recent months. It’s well built, feels sturdy enough to withstand a few knocks and suggests itself as another reliable option for a back up point-and-shoot camera on those occasions when taking a consumer-level DSLR out is both impractical and inadvisable. ”

ComputerActive have reviewed the Fujifilm FinePix F20 and write;
Good Points: Solid construction at a great price, Manually selectable light sensitivity up to ISO2000 (in Natural Light mode), Easy to use and quick to respond, Bright and clear screen visibility. Bad Points: Battery life not as good as the F30 (and light sensitivity capped), Not much else! Verdict: Offering better value than the acclaimed F30 – plus boasting higher maximum ISO than most of us will need from a point-and-shoot – the F20 manages the rare trick of matching performance and build to price”
