Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR


The Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR ($330 as of October 19, 2010) is certainly one of the most versatile fixed-lens cameras on the market today, thanks to a 15X optical zoom lens (24mm to 360mm), some unique shooting modes that make the most of the unit's...

15X optical zoom lens (24mm to 360mm) ; 360-degree instant panorama mode ; Well-designed mode dial and menus ; EXR modes optimize sensor for shooting environment

Poor video quality ; Shutter lag at startup and after zooming ; Photos exhibit below-average sharpness ; Autofocus searches during video and zooming ; Disappointing low-light performance

The 15X-optical-zoom FinePix F300EXR offers a boatload of features and imaging controls, but video quality, sharpness, and low-light performance are major shortcomings.

FinePix F300EXR


($329) is the latest in Fuji's series of compact, high sensitivity cameras. Over the years, the camera's have stayed the same size, with the lenses getting considerably longer with each revision. Just a few years ago, the FinePix F60fd had a 3X zoom...

15X, 24 - 360 mm zoom lens in a compact, well built body ; Sensor-shift image stabilization ; Fast autofocus in good light ; Good color accuracy (even in the studio), low redeye ; Dynamic range is decent if you use the DR 400% or 800% settings (though...

Photos are soft, with lots of detail smudging and highlight clipping; for best results you must use EXR modes, which lower resolution and limit control of settings ; Edges of frame can be blurry; strong purple fringing at times; camera tends to...

The Fuji FinePix F300EXR is one of those cameras that sounds great when you look at the spec sheet and press release, but in reality, it turned out to be a major disappointment. A camera can have all the bells and whistles in the world, but at its...

Review: Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR camera


It has a long list of great features and cool in-camera tricks, including 15X optical zoom, but the FinePix F300EXR also has a few significant performance hiccups.

Let's start with a list of things the FinePix F300EXR does right, because it definitely brings a lot to the table for prospective buyers. In addition to full manual controls, aperture- and shutter-priority modes, two Auto modes, and a range of scene...

NOT a point and shoot camera - had a far less expensive Kodak that was far more friendly, accurate and sharp. Would never recommend this. Am seriously disappointed and upset that I depended on others ratings and a very special event was barely captured...


Almost everything. Very fragile.Blurs if you are not PERFECTLY still or if the subject is not PERFECTLY STILL. Stabilization feature is a joke. Zoom is useless on spontaneous shots - especially with video. Settings are difficult to use unless you want...
