    F900EXR Review. 4 1/2 Stars

    I've been into photography for over 50 years and have used many, many cameras. Digital cameras just keep getting better and better all the time. The F900 is the first Fujifilm I've owned since my F31 died. I've been using the F900EXR for about three weeks now and just returned from a trip to Belgium and Holland where I used the camera extensively for travel snaps. I usually post process every image, though I find the F900EXR images only require a bit of contrast enhancement and maybe some ...

QUESTION

F900EXR replacement battery.

I need another battery as the Fuji NP-50A will no longer accept charge so can anyone recommend a good alternative or must I buy a genuine Fuji replacement and hope it lasts longer than the original? Thank you.

ANSWERS

A genuine Fuji replacement isn't necessary nor does it have to be the more recent "A" version : http://faq.fujifilm.com/digitalcamera/faq_detail.html?id=110200702 . Both of Fuji's versions have the same capacity, 1000ma (typical), 940ma (minimum) but the NP-50A's initial voltage is rated 3.7v vs 3.6v for the NP-50. I'd be surprised if the NP-50A is good for more than 5% more shots per charge. The F900 manual only gives battery life for the NP-50A (260 shots per CIPA test procedure) but the F770 manual gives battery life for the NP-50 and the NP-50A, and both batteries are rated at 300 shots per charge. Many people recommend Wasabi batteries. I've use those as well as the Kodak's KLIC version and the Power2000, Pearstone and Watcon versions sold by Adorama and B&H. These may or may not last as long as genuine Fuji batteries (that probably aren't actually made by Fuji) but it doesn't matter to me. There may be problems with really cheap batteries, such as lasting only days, weeks or ... Continue Reading

It seems like that battery died mighty quickly.  One of my concerns with Li Ion batteries that are proprietary is how durable are they- what about high heat or high humidity? Why dont manufacturers just cave and make AA sized Li Ion batteries, that way we can all make choices as to what kind of battery chemistry we want. Continue Reading

Shackleton wrote: A good part of battery life has to do with what options you selected in the menu.  If you leav your camra on with continuous focus and face detection and GPS, your battery won't last long.  That said, the Fujifilm branded NP-50 and NP-50A batteries are sourced from China,  The Wasabi batteries are assembled in China, but the battery cells themselves are made in Japan.  I buy Wasabi replacement batteries.  I have found no significant difference in battery life, but all else being equal, I would choose a Wasabi NP-50 over a Fujifilm NP-50A every time.

QUESTION

What the best about LUMIX TZ40 compare to others

Hi everyone, I prefer  to Lumix TZ40 because a lot of review say this is the best camera to date and the price just enough for my budget. But the most important thing IF we compare to [Canon SX280 HS/Lumix L7/Galaxy camera GC100/Fujifilm F900EXR/Sony HX50V/TZ40] - which the camera is best on low light & night situation for video and picture - What about the performance when snap fast moving object like trains, f1, (blurr or static image) - How long battery life when we recording a video with single charge for 720p. - Which is user friendly, I mean the interface. Easy to use like android/IOS? I want know this points before I buy, some say the screen TZ40 not very responsive, its true? Thanks for sharing your experience.

Hi pijol, May I ask what you ended bying? I'm in the exact same situation looking at the same models as you do (did) - with one change; SX280 -> SX700. Would be great to learn what you purchased and your experiences with the camera. Best regards, Lars Continue Reading

QUESTION

F900EXR battery query.

Not familiar with it and have no instructions so can I ask is it normal for the charger light to flash continually while the battery is in the charger or does that indicate a problem? Thank you.

Shackleton asked

ANSWERS

I have an F900EXR. Although I've not had the blinking light problem with the F900 charger/battery, I did have the same issue with my Panasonic TS-20 camera. I thought it was an issue with the battery, so I bought a new one (OEM by Panasonic, not a third party battery.)  The new battery charged up fine, but the camera would not turn on with the newly charged battery. I assume the camera is dead. Continue Reading

If you don't have a CD with the manual on it (it's a PDF file) you can easily download it from Fuji's websites. According to the manual, the LED is on (solid, non-blinking) while the battery is charging. The LED is off if there's no battery in the charger or when the battery finishes charging. Fuji says that when the LED blinks it indicates a battery fault. Continue Reading
