“The model’s menu system is basic in design, although all of the major functionality is easy to access as a result. The presence of a bold mode dial on the top of the camera, alongside an ‘f’ button for quick access to common functionality, are also of benefit.”

Trustedreviews reviews the Fujifilm FinePix SL300 / SL350 and writes;
“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.”
