Fujifilm Finepix F70 EXR


At first look the F70 is curvaceous and sleek with its glossy metal-finished plastic body. It's not overcrowded with buttons with just the power and shutter release with a nice little zoom ring on

Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR


The Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR ($250 as of 12/14/09) is about as compact as cameras get, yet it somehow serves up a 10X-optical-zoom lens (spanning from 27mm to 270mm), dual image stabilization, and a 10-megapixel sensor. It generally emphasizes...

Handy Pro Focus and Natural & Flash modes ; Same EXR sensor and modes as higher-end cameras

Body design is hard to hold ; Only two f-stops in aperture settings

The F70EXR is a surprisingly powerful pocket megazoom camera that makes challenging photo situations easier for casual shooters.

Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR


Editors' note: The Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR is identical to the Best Buy-only Fujifilm FinePix F72EXR except for body color.

Overall very good photo quality; lots of useful features; very good dynamic range and high-ISO performance in EXR modes; extremely compact for having a 10x zoom, wide-angle lens.

No HD movie mode; limited aperture settings; menu systems take some getting used to; above average amount of purple fringing in photos; two EXR modes use 5-megapixel resolution.

A compact megazoom with a lot to offer, the Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR is very good for its class, but with a few limitations.

Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR


While its modest 10-MP resolution won't help the Fujifilm Finepix F70EXR ($279.95 street) win the "megapixel war," this camera focuses on the details that really matter, excellent image quality and a powerful optical zoom lens. Packing a wide 27mm 10x...

Solid image quality. Fast performance. 27mm wide-angle, 10x optical zoom lens in a thin housing. Negligible noise in images taken at ISO 100-400

Aging user interface. LCD shows considerable motion blur. Proprietary USB and A/V ports connectors

The Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR takes beautiful shots and packs a wide-angle, 10x optical zoom lens in a small body, but its lackluster user interface and the omission of HD-video capture might be dealbreakers for some.

Review: FujiFilm FinePix F70EXR digital camera


The Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR is about as compact as cameras get, yet it somehow serves up a 10X-optical-zoom lens.

You can treat EXR mode like an advanced Program mode setting; it'll choose the right EXR effect (full resolution, low light, or dynamic range) depending on the situation. You can also dial in the mode you want directly. EXR mode is effective, but often...

Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR Review


Fujifilm's FinePix F70EXR carries the banner of "World's smallest 10x optical zoom camera." The svelte new F70 also incorporates the nifty EXR technology introduced earlier this year in the much talked about F200EXR.

10x zoom ; Great image quality ; Flexible shooting options

Some modes only 5MP ; No RAW shooting ; Slower AF in low light

Indoor image quality is noticeably better than average, but as sensitivity automatically rises to overcome lower levels of ambient lighting, noise rises exponentially and color accuracy suffers a bit. Noise levels are quite low, well below average up...

Review: Fujifilm F70 EXR


Fujifilm brings better dynamic range to a lower price.

Dynamic range helpful for getting the most from shots ; 10X lens flexible but still produces good quality ; Well-built, compact design ; Easy to use while still giving some manual control ; Good price for the feature set

EXR only sometimes a saving grace ; Lens zoom isn't as dramatic as you'd expect; slight fringing ; No HD video or HD video output ; Controls omit shutter priority and could be better-placed

ergonomics, controls and expansionAnyone who has held the F200 EXR will feel instantly at home with the F70 EXR both in design and in its feel in the hand. Both are positives: the design is reasonably compact and is extremely well-built with a s

Product Specifications

The FinePix F70EXR gives three critical improvements on current models. First, image quality - the one drawback with long zoom cameras is that the sensor has to be necessarily small, with less light reaching the CCD than would be the case with standard compacts. Fujifilm has introduced its award-winning EXR technology into the FinePix F70EXR, giving a significant improvement in image quality against other models. The second major benefit of the FinePix F70EXR is the neat compact design. Lastly, Fujinon 10x zoom lens, developed in conjunction with the super CCD EXR sensor, produces crisp high resolution results throughout the focal range, from 27mm wide-angle to 270mm telephoto.
