Fuji FinePix F100fd Review at DC Resource

DC Resource has published a review of the 12 megapixel Fujifilm Finepix F100fd.

Overall, I have mixed feelings about the FinePix F100fd. It’s a nice enough compact camera, with good photo quality and a host of user-friendly features (though it has its share of annoyances, too). At the same time, as someone who has used all of the models in the F-series, I’m disappointed with the direction Fuji has taken the line in recent years (in terms of low light shooting, battery life, etc).

Fujifilm FinePix S8100fd Review at PhotographyBLOG

PhotographyBLOG has posted a review of the Fujifilm FinePix S8100fd.

The new Fujifilm FinePix S8100fd ultra-zoom camera is a rather modest update of it’s predecessor, the S8000fd. New features include the inevitable increase in megapixels, up from 8 to 10, new Zoom Bracketing and Instant Zoom modes and some new continuous shooting modes. The S8100fd also offers the same CCD-shift image stabilisation system, 2.5-inch LCD monitor with a refresh rate of 60 frames per second, electronic viewfinder, Face Detection system and battery life of up to 400 pictures as the S8000fd. With a street price of less than £200 / $350, Gavin Stoker found out if the Fujifilm S8100fd can successfully undercut its main rivals without sacrificing features, performance or picture quality.

Fuji FinePix S100fs Review at DC Resource

DC Resource has posted a review of the Fujifilm FinePix S100FS.

The S100fs is better than other ultra zooms in most respects, save for purple fringing, RAW editing, and battery life. Is it $300 – $400 better? I’m not so sure of that. If you’re willing to part with nearly $700 on a fixed-lens camera, then the FinePix S100fs is absolutely worth a look.

Megapixel.net has posted a review of the Fuji FinePix s8000fd.

The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd is a very versatile camera. For shutterbugs interested in a large zoom but not in a lot of photographic rigmarole, the snapper will take fine pictures without leaving the auto mode. On the other hand, the unit has plenty of flexibility for lenseslingers who demand more control over what they’re shooting.

Fujifilm Finepix S100FS Review at DPReview

DPReview has posted a review of the 11.1 megapixel Fuji Finepix S100FS.

It represents an awful lot of camera for comparatively little money and one that is more flexible than a DSLR kit for the same outlay. Its feature set, including very respectable RAW performance and dynamic range optimization is impressive. It’s nice to see a flash hot shoe, even if it isn’t as sophisticated as the ones found on most DSLRs.
