FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR Reviews

Cameras.uk reviews the FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR and writes;
“There is a lot to like about the handling and ease of use of the Fuji Finepix Z700EXR. I found the touch control interface one of the simplest to use. The problem is that the weak point is the quality of the photos it takes. In most of my tests it performed to an acceptable level as a snapshot camera, but if you are looking for that bit more then there are better options out there. “

Steve’sDigicams reviews the FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR and writes;
“Our indoor images show us an image that is very sharp in the middle, but softens around the edges. ISO 100 through 400 provided us with acceptable amounts of noise, although the dark, low contrast areas show more than the rest of the image. Any ISO setting over 400 loses a great deal of sharpness and detail. “

TrustedReviews reviews the FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR and writes;
“The FinePix Z700 EXR combines Fuji’s technically advanced sensor technology with a stylish design, a well-implemented touch-screen interface, decent performance, a good range of features and superior build quality to produce a great pocket compact that is fun to use and produces excellent results, although the poor low-light focusing is a disadvantage. The surprisingly low price makes it excellent value for money. “

CNET.asia reviews the FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR and writes;
“The good: Good color reproduction; large 3.5-inch touchscreen; interesting cat/dog detection. The bad: Sluggish performance; user menu can be more intuitive; design doesn’t draw much attention; fingerprint magnet. The bottom line: The Z700EXR is not an inspiring camera, but it will nonetheless satisfy non-fussy users. “
Rating: ★★★½☆

PhotographyBay reviews the FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR and writes;
“the Fuji Z700EXR is a decent camera – particularly considering the touchscreen and the pricepoint under $250. While I prefer the functionality and overall performance of the Sony Cyber-shot TX7, the Z700EXR is a decent alternative for those not wanting to spend quite as much on a touchscreen compact. “
Rating: ★★★½☆

Neutralday reviews the FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR and writes;
“Lens performance is pretty good, a bit of corner sharpness, and minimal amounts of chromatic aberration in our shots, likely controlled in-camera. Since it’s just a 5x zoom and doesn’t go too wide angle, distortion isn’t a major factor either, nor is softness at the long end of its reach.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Digitalversus reviews the FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR and writes;
“At low sensitivities, in ‘wide-angle’ (which doesn’t actually go any lower than 35 mm), the Finepix Z700EXR takes pictures that are sharp in the centre and not quite as clear around the edges, with traces of purple fringes around highly contrasted areas. That’s all pretty typical stuff for a periscopic lens.”

FujiFilm FinePix Z700EXR User Reviews

Terrific pictures, but the touch-screen annoys me just a little | Rating: ★★★★★
“I’ve noticed that when used in the cat (or dog) mode, the camera tends to focus on the face, and not the rest of the body. Works better as a “portrait” shot. If I’m photographing the entire body, it works better on EXR Auto.. Recovery time after taking a picture without using the flash was under a second; recovery time between pictures with the flash firing was under 2 seconds before the camera was ready to take another shot…this was faster than other cameras I’ve used recently. Recovery time also depends on the class of your SD card. “ – By Yarii

Compact, fully loaded. HD videos. | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Overall, the camera takes wonderful photos. It has tons of presets for every imaginable shooting situation. You just have to pick the right setting and you’ll almost certainly be satisfied. So small, but feature packed. Looking back in the days of my 640 x 480 Mavica, this pocket friendly point & shoot has gone a long long way.” – By Nuknuk

A solid evolution to a line of lookers | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I found that taking pictures was very easy, the portability and how much grip I could hold on the camera was excellent, and the picture quality was good, but I have a few scenarios I’m going to continue testing. The touch screen is a pleasure to use compared to the touch screen I used on the Nikon S70. The interface on the touch screen is also far superior to the S70 Nikon in my opinion, plus it just feels more durable on this Fuji.” – By THATCH

Love this hot little camera! | Rating: ★★★★★
“The touch screen is huge: 3.5″ x 2″ (so it’s widescreen), and displays in super high resolution. I don’t know if it qualifies as HD, but it sure looks like it. The display will auto-rotate (just like an iPhone) depending on which way you hold the camera. I both love and dislike the touch screen: It’s so fun, and it feels much more interactive than my other digital cameras; but sometimes I accidentally press buttons, and the screen gets greasy/dirty quickly.” – By M. Mills

Overall good performer, small size, unique lens system, | Rating: ★★★★★
“Overall, image quality was pretty good with excellent color saturation and few blown highlights in the sunny summer day outdoors shots I took. I felt that the noise at all ISO levels was a little higher than I am accustomed to in higher end point `n shoots like this one, but that is a personal opinion. On the whole, this is a more than adequate point `n shoot camera. The non-extending lens is a major plus factor. The 5X optical zoom with optical stabilization is more than competent. Flash range is pretty good.” – By Jerry Saperstein

I LOVE this camera! | Rating: ★★★★★
“The FinePix Z700EXR does an excellent job of stabilizing shots. I was very surprised at how well a lot of the pictures turned out. Perhaps 10% of them were blurred; the rest had sharp points of focus with the background looking great…” – By Diane Kistner

The “No Glasses Needed” Screen | Rating: ★★★★★
“This camera addresses my three biggest concerns when buying a camera: it takes good photos, it works well in low light and the menu is drop-dead simple to navigate. But it also slam-dunks two requirements that I didn’t even know I had until I used it: a screen big enough to see without my glasses and the ability to shoot a flash/no flash sequence every time I take a photo. My standards have officially been raised. “ – By Claire Jordan
