    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

focusing when using zoom, and other issues with Finepix F850 EXR

Hi, I've just gotten an F850 to replace a Lumix zs20.  I've had Fuji compact cameras before and love the warmer, more natural colors and their previous stellar ability to capture shots in low light.  They seemed to have strayed from that focus but I'm hoping that they're back on track here. So far, I'm enjoying this camera on still subjects in all kinds of lighting.  Chasing kids and pets, however, not so much.  The zoom feel sluggish compared to the Lumix, and the video takes longer to intermittently refocus.  That said, I'm trying really hard to love this camera and figure out how to work with it. When I zoom in on a subject, still or not, it often momentarily focuses crystal clear (and that sometimes takes a few seconds), but goes fuzzy once the photo is actually taken.  Is there a setting I should change to to help with this? Thanks so much! (sorry to tag the different cameras.  f850 was not an option)

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

GPS on F770EXR ?

I'm planning to buy one last EXR camera, on the assumption that Fujifilm is going to discontinue the sensor. I would like an X10 with bigger LCD and without viewfinder, but it obviously is not going to happen. XF1 lens failure stories scare me. The F900EXR seems the obvious choice, but it does not have GPS, which is more important to me than ultra-fast autofocus. I have three SD card readers, so wireless is not critical (yet). So here's my question: If you have an F770EXR, does the GPS work well enough that you can use it productively? On my old F550EXR, it did not. Took a very long time to acquire satellite triangulation, and sometimes it never did. Whereas the GPS on the Panasonic TS and Nikon AW models works well.

My original F550's GPS worked like your old F550, so poorly that I exchanged it, and that one worked reasonably well. My F770's GPS seemed to work better but I never compared them because I don't normally use the GPS unless I'm traveling. The GPS had been disabled on both cameras for more than a year so I enabled both quickly (active only when powered on) and then powered them off. About an hour later I had them out in a park, powered them on simultaneously and took a picture within a about five seconds and then waited for signs that the GPS got a satellite fix. The F770 took 45 seconds and the F550 took 115 seconds. The sky seemed blue and pretty clear but I didn't look at it very closely. When I returned to that location about 40 minutes later and examined the sky it appeared that the entire sky was slightly obscured by a thin cloud cover, but nowhere was it so dense that the blue was replaced by white. It seems like a good time to buy an F770EXR. I don't know if you saw a recent ... Continue Reading

Thanks Monsieur Reddi, 45 seconds is acceptable. My buddies with TS4 and AW100 sometimes take longer than that, probably due to trees, but I think both those models are faster in a clearing. White for $147? Wow, red is at least $70 more and white would be my second preference after red. The F770EXR also does Raw, but having tried it a few times, it's something I probably would never use.
