Fujifilm FinePix Z70 User Reviews

Another great camera in the Fuji line-up | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The HD video with this camera is just as good visually as my Flip Mino HD camcorder. Optical zoom needs to be set before recording starts, it cannot be changed after the button is pushed. Focus is also set when recording begins, but exposure and white balance are constantly adjusting during the recording. ” – By ok4ablonde

Blue finish looks good, and it’s metal, not plastic, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Pictures are sharp and the colors are, if anything, a little brighter than normal, but I like that. Response time after taking a picture without using the flash was just about a second; response time between pictures with the flash firing was around 2 seconds or less before ready to take another flash shot…this was a lot better than some other cameras I’ve tried recently.” – By ok4ablonde

Nice little camera | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This is a great little camera and takes fantasitc pics. The ion battery lasts about 7 hours or so under pretty continuous use, so I’m picking up a spare… as well as the ability to shoot HD video in such a compact camera is wonderful and for the price, really can’t be beat.” – By Todd Brewer

First Fujifilm Camera, and satisfied | Rating: ★★★★★
“Pictures are very clear and pretty. it holds off person’s flaws pretty well. moving face-detection is a great feature… video quality is really nice to. VERY CLEAR. can’t be more satisfied with this product with exception of the user interface. But the basic camera capabilities are extremely satisfying. ” – By Byoung K. Lee

CLEAR | Rating: ★★★★★
“My favorite feature of this camera is that it can take 2 pictures at a time, one with the flash and then one without so you can pick which one is better… On this camera you can take many many pictures and HD Video with power to spare… The pictures and video come out really clear.” – By **Movie Reviewer**

What do you expect for under $150 buck? | Rating: ★★★★★
“Picture is very clear and in the same time very forgiving regarding imperfection on you face. HD movie looks great,very smooth, sound is good too. Just remember a mic is attached to the camera, you only going to give clear sound when you are close to it.” – By J. Sariya

    Hi I have purchased a Fujifilm Finepix Z70, i took over 200 pics of my daughters Deb and a friends 18th only to find on looking at and developing my pics i had blotches like water marks on my prints, only on the ones inside with a flash, looks to me like it has something to do with the process of the flash in side the camers. These show up in different places and a variety of sizes. I had the camera sent back to Fujifilm who replaced me with a new one. I took photos at an engagement on Sat night only to find again these water marks appear again. Not happy, such important occasions spoilt by these marks. Has this happend before to your knowledge or have i just had bad luck. The camers takes lovely outside photos. What is your suggestion.
