FujiFilm FinePix Z1 reviewed

 

Our fine European friends at LetsGoDigital have a review of a pre-production model of FujiFilm's sleek little 5.1 megapixel FinePix Z1. The camera, which is just 18.6mm thick (that's 0.73-inches on this side of the pond), has one of those...

Fujifilm's Simple, Slim Shooter

 

The FinePix Z1 point-and-shoot camera is easy to use and stylish, but its image quality is lacking.

Fujifilm FinePix Z1 review

 

Stylish yet solidly built, the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 has an internally zooming lens that keeps it thin and pocketable. This 5-megapixel ultracompact also houses Fujifilm's fifth-generation Super CCD HR sensor and new RP processor, which seem to have...

Low image noise at high ISO settings; quick performance; versatile 2.5-inch LCD; stylish.

No continuous-shooting mode; few adjustable settings and scene modes; tripod mount and ports in included dock instead of camera.

The pocket-friendly ultracompact Fujifilm FinePix Z1 delivers good image quality and quick performance but lacks manual controls and fine-tuning tools.

Very portable. Large 2.5-inch LCD. Fuji's Real Photo Technology decreases blur in low-light shots.

Pricey. Boosting the ISO quickly can compromise image quality.

The Z1's stylish looks, easy-to-use features, and large LCD make for a good shooting experience. But in our hands-on tests, image quality wasn't very consistent.

Fujifilm FinePix Z1 review

 

Just before the big event the PMA show 2005 in Orlando, Florida USA kicked off, Fujifilm surprised design lovers with the introduction of the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 digital camera. This incredibly neatly designed digital camera is a real jewel to look at....

The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 digital camera has a beautiful appearance. Nicely finished matte black of solid quality which certainly won't give you a 'plastic' feeling when holding the camera. Despite the stiff design, without handgrip, the Fujifilm Z1 lies...

Digital Cameras - Fuji FinePix Z1 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

The compact, oh-so-stylish Fujifilm FinePix Z1 follows in the footsteps of their excellent medium-sized F10 model, although it doesn't quite match that model's exceptional low-light performance. It does well in that regard though when compared against...

Compact and stylish, silver/black design is very attractive, Very impressive shutter response, speed overall is quite good, especially for a compact model, Generally good image quality, Large 2.5 inch LCD display, good visibility both outdoors and in...

No optical viewfinder, Red hues are rather oversaturated, While better than average, noise reduction processing loses significant subtle subject detail at ISO 400 and above, High contrast makes for snappy-looking images, but loses highlight detail very...

The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 is aimed at consumers who value style, portability, and ease of use, shielding them from the complexities of shutter speeds and aperture settings (although the camera does let you know what values it has selected for you)....

5.1 megapixel digital camera with special F button

 

The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 is a 5.1 megapixel digital camera in the $300 price range. While it competes with other digital cameras that feature higher megapixels, higher resolutions don't always equate to better value. The design is well implemented, with...
