Fujifilm FinePix S100fs Reviews

RegHardware reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“Picture noise didn’t become too much of issue until around ISO 800. The 6400 and 10,000 ISO settings are a gimmick because the results are really bad”
Rating: ★★★½☆

LetsGoDigital reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“the S100fs is still excellent to use for enlargements and print jobs… It is a typical case of a camera that performs excellently when tested extensively in a lab but doesn’t live up to that expectation in practice.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DCR reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“In general, the S100FS proved to be an exceptionally capable camera with accurate, vibrant colors, and reasonably accurate gradations in middle tones… I”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“The 11-megapixel imager on the S100FS was able to capture some pleasing images when using the 11M Fine setting. The exposure system did well outdoors under some harsh sunlight. When clouds were present, it was able to produce beautiful sky detail. ”

InfoSync reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“The Fujifilm Finepix S100fs takes great photos, no bones about it. The camera doesn’t come cheap, but the premium gives definite returns on popping color reproduction, sharp exposures and near-DSLR performance.”
Rating: ★★★★½

ImagingResource reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“From the ergonomic body with the luxury of lots of buttons to the long zoom with great macro performance to its extended dynamic range and high ISO shooting, the S100FS was a greater and greater pleasure the more I used it.”
Rating: N/A

NeoCamera reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“It is clear that the Fuji Finepix S100FS delivers superb results for a fixed-lens camera. Image noise is very low, dynamic range is outstanding, color is good, exposure is excellent and its lens is very sharp.”
Rating: ★★★★½

DCRP reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“Camera performance was generally good, though there’s definitely room for improvement. The camera starts up in 1.7 seconds..Shutter lag wasn’t a major issue, and shot-to-shot delays were short, even when shooting RAW.”
Rating: N/A

PhotographyBlog reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“Stick to ISO 800 or below if you want to avoid noise. That said, the S100FS makes a cleaner fist of it than most, its performance at ISO 1600 equivalent to some rivals at ISO 800, and ditto ISO 3200. P”

Photoxels reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“Overall, the Fujifilm S100fs can deliver DSLR-quality images in the hands of a capable photographer. I am a bit concerned about the unexplained high noise (or digital artefacts) present in some of the ISO 100 images. ”

OutbackPhoto reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“On the other side this camera features an amazing zoom range without switching lenses. If you learn to handle the CA and can live with the very slow write speed the S100FS can be a nice travel camera with a strong reach in the tele range. ”
Rating: N/A

TrustedReviews reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“It has superior handling, performance and image quality to any other super-zoom camera on the market, but comparing it to a real DSLR is a bit disingenuous. It is very expensive, more expensive even than an entry-level DSLR, and for all its qualities it doesn’t quite compete on the same level. ”
Rating: ★★★★½

Pocket-Lint reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs is a bit of a mixed bag: it’s bigger than budget DSLRs it is priced to, and undoubtedly will, compete against. While it has a superb zoom lens, it has a small sensor compared with DSLRs and it has some exposure and dynamic range issues”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ePhotozine reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“The colours on the landscape mode blow me away. The grass is a lush, rich green and there’s good detail, but the fringing is horrible…I also like the different film simulations available and the handy chart showing the Dynamic Range, Colour, Tone and Sensitivity. ”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET.uk reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
“The 11-megapixel Fujifilm Finepix S100FS is a heavyweight in both size and features, with impressive raw performance, a large sensor and an excellent wide-angle long lens, only let down by purple fringing”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotoReview.au reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs and writes;
” We are also nominating it as an Editor’s Choice for the Advanced category of compact digicams – although with some reservations. Our main concerns lie with the high lateral chromatic aberration we found with the test camera’s lens. ”
