Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro Review – PC Magazine

Fuji Finepix S3 Pro Digital CameraPC Magazine features a Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro digital camera review and writes:

Like the Fujifilm FinePix S2 Pro before it, the new Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro is built on the Nikon N80 film SLR chassis—one of the most enjoyable cameras to hold. Because the N80 is a plastic-bodied camera, however, it’s not as rugged as other pro cameras, such as the Nikon D2X, which has a harder magnesium-alloy body. It’s just one of the ways in which the S3 Pro seems to exhibit an identity problem: Is it an expensive consumer digital SLR or a cheaper alternative to the high-priced pro D-SLRs? That’s a question that you may have to answer for yourself, depending on your needs.

For the excellent picture quality, the wide dynamic range and lots of control over settings, Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro digital camera gets 4 points (out of ten) on this review.

FujiFilm FinePix F10 Review – Designtechnica

Fuji FinePix F10 digital cameraDesign Technica features a nice FujiFilm FinePix F10 review and states:

The new 6.3-megapixel FujiFilm FinePix F10 ($399 MSRP) is a rather unassuming digital camera with a silvery metal finish and plain vanilla styling. Yet looks are very deceiving; this is one of the best performing cameras on the market. The camera has superb low-light shooting capability, film camera-like response, easy-to-operate controls and menus. And, of course, great photo quality. In effect, this is everything a point-and-shoot digicam should be in 2005. For slightly more than 300 bucks, this camera should be high on the list for those who want effortless picture taking. That said, the FinePix F10 is not God’s Gift to Photography; there are some annoying flaws we’re happy to point out in the hope that Fuji engineers will take the comments as constructive criticism.

The appreciated features of the FujiFilm FinePix F10 digital camera: Beautiful, accurate photos; Very accurate colors ; Ability to shoot in available light; World-class battery life ; Fast, fast, fast.

For these features the conclusion of this review is:

“With a “go” price of under $350 (not counting the current $30 rebate from FujiFilm), this camera is a great buy for anyone looking for an easy-to-use digicam that delivers excellent quality and response. The Natural Light feature is terrific, letting you take very nice available light shots. It’s fast and battery life is excellent. The only major negatives are the ridiculous xD Picture card flash memory and that bizarre “terminal adapter” for recharging the battery and connecting to your computer. If you can deal with those issues and the others mentioned, give this baby a serious test drive.

Fuji Finepix Z1 Review – Cameras.co.uk

Fuji Finepix Z1Cameras.co.uk has a Fuji Finepix Z1 review and writes :

“The Finepix Z1 produced a pleasing set of test pictures. There was only one photo that it failed with and that is the test carried out in complete darkness. The result was an over exposed shot that was out of focus. This is a test that Fuji digital cameras routinely struggle with. It means that the camera is likely to get into difficulties when the light is really poor.”

The conclusion is :

‘The Fuji Finepix Z1 is certainly up there amongst the best ultra compact digital cameras that I have tested. The picture quality is very pleasing and I am a big fan of the design. It is slightly more expensive than its rivals, but I would be prepared to pay the extra few pounds. One area I would like to see improved is the menu system. ‘

Fujifilm FinePix A350 Reviewed by Steves Digicams

Fuji A350 CameraSteves Digicams has a Fujifilm FinePix A350 review and writes:

“I found the overall image quality was good when using the 5M Fine mode. Most of our sample images were sharp with good color balance. The exposure system also did well and I especially liked how it captured sky detail. Noise levels were moderate in high/low contrast areas, but we didn’t see much purple fringing (aka Chromatic Aberration) around highlights. However, I was very disappointed with its autofocus system. It failed more often then not in dim lighting and every time the camera tries to lock focus, the LCD freezes up, making it useless if following a moving subject. But thanks to its optical viewfinder, you should have no problems capturing images of the kids running through the house or yard. When a still picture won’t capture the moment, you can opt to use its movie mode. Sound is recorded and the movie frames are captured at a relatively low 10fps in 320×240 (QVGA) resolution. Our sample movies were average with noticeable amounts of compression noise.”

And:

Bottom line – the Fujifilm FinePix A350 was a mixed bag. While I was pleased with our indoor and outdoor image quality results, its sluggish performance really dragged it down. Also when shooting portraits indoors, you have to make certain there’s plenty of light for the autofocus system, and the LCD freezing issue was very aggravating.

Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro Review

Fuji FinePix S3 Pro digital cameraDigital Camera Info features a Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro Digital Camera Review and writes:
“The FinePix S3 really does offer expanded dynamic range, with beautiful color and excellent noise control. Maybe we should stop right there, because that’s the news. That’s what the competition has to try to match.

The question is whether or not to buy one. Sure, lots of people need more dynamic range and good portrait color, but do they need it for $2500? Do they need it at one frame per second? Do they need it with autofocus that wasn’t top-of-the-line even three years ago?

Actually, yes. The camera will serve a sizable market. Wedding and portrait photographers need to take flattering pictures with rich color even when they can’t control the lighting. This is a very large sect of commercial photographers, compared to other segments of the photographic profession, and they can put up with many of the limitations of the S3. Fuji is wise to go after them.

Professional photographers will have to make their own judgments about whether they’ve been losing money thanks to limited dynamic range, or if more dynamic range will pay back a $2500 bill at the camera store.

For users who don’t have a cost/benefit analysis to run, the question is much more subtle. The FinePix S3 yields much, much better dynamic range than the Nikon D70 or Canon 20D, and better color. It’s not better in any other respect, and it’s inferior in many other regards, so the decision will inevitably come down to personal preference and shooting priorities.”
