    This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR 16 MP Digital Camera with 20x Optical Zoom (Red) (Electronics)

    I have been a photographer for over 30 years and have had many different types of cameras. I bought this camera to take with me on an upcoming overseas trip where I didn’t want to carry my Nikon DSLR. I photographed with the F770EXR in several different settings to test its picture taking capabilities. I will update this review when I return from my trip.

    This seems like a very well built camera. I like the feel and the size is perfect to fit in my pocket. So far the pictures have been very good. They do not compare to my Nikon DSLR, but I didn’t expect them to. Outdoor pictures come close. Indoor pictures with the flash are acceptable. Indoor pictures without the flash are also acceptable as long as your subject isn’t moving and there is adequate light. I haven’t tried night photography yet.

    The one thing I was disappointed with is the included software; MyFinePix Studio. I have an Apple Mac and the software isn’t compatible with OS 10. Snow Leopard is the last version this software will work with. Go to this site to see all of the features you will either get if you use a PC or not have if you use a Mac computer: […]

    The bottom line is I am pleased with the picture taking capability of the F770EXR. If you want DSLR results then it is best to purchase a DSLR. If you need a small travel camera to take pictures, I think you will be pleased with this camera.

    4-17 update. OK after reading the other reviews especially the ones that gave the camera one star I took my camera out and checked the focus at full zoom. The camera focused right away and the pictures were clear. Maybe there were a couple of duds in the first batch released. I am pleased with mine so far.

    7-13 update. Took the camera to Israel and it did great for photos. The movie camera has a lot to be desired. It doesn’t focus very well and when you zoom in and out it makes a noise that can be heard on your video. Don’t buy this if you are using it for the video feature. If you just need a camera for photos then I would recommend it.

    I am baffled by the mediocre reviews of others on this site regarding this camera. I’ve had mine almost two weeks now, shot hundreds of test shots, and I love the camera. I am not a photo aficianado, so perhaps I don’t notice little things that others might, but as a regular joe type consumer, this camera does everything I need and more. The auto-focus is incredibly fast and accurate. Photos are crisp and clear. Color is excellent. The flash mechanism is a bit weird, but it works fine–I could see how after thousands of uses, the design might be prone to glitches. A built-in flash with no moving parts would probably be better. Battery life has been terrific. I have gone over 300 photos with lots of juice left, and this includes viewing the shots briefly in playback mode. Like most newer cameras, the battery can only be charged outside the camera. I would prefer otherwise. The EXR function works great. It does a good job of selecting the correct paramaters to give a really good photo on a shot that an amateur like me would likely otherwise mess up. I also have the F550exr, and, although the F770 improves on the low-light performance of the F550, in extreme low-light situations it still is not very good. My Casio ZR 100 is much better in extreme low-light situations, but in regular indoor shots, the F770 does fine, in fact, I would say, it is superb. The zoom is amazing. Focus is great every step of the way. Even more amazing is the auto-shake function that stabilizes the photo when using the zoom at or near its limit. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.

    I have not yet used the video, so I cannot comment on its video capabilities. I note that, with the F550, video was very good, but that camera sometimes searched for focus if you used the zoom while shooting a video.

    If you think this camera is bad, then it was damaged in shipping or you don’t know how to use it!…., October 30, 2012

    I cannot believe that anyone who knows the basics on how to use a camera and did not receive a damaged product can say this camera is bad! This little camera is incredible, with some minor flaws! I recently reduced my rating to 4.5 starts (from 5) due to the video focus problem with the camera.

    After researching digital cameras for over 2 and 1/2 months and suffering with 2 horrific cameras I had to send back, I finally got the right camera. My first attempt was the highly disappointing Panasonic Lumix ZS20 14.1 MP High Sensitivity MOS Digital Camera with 20x Optical Zoom (Black) (see my Amaz review for that – it was terrible) as my 1st choice to replace my 7-year-old Kodak EasyShare Z760, and then after that one was a bust, I tried the almost-as-disappointing Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V 16.2 MP Exmor R CMOS Digital Still Camera with 16x Optical Zoom G Lens, 3D Sweep Panorama and Full HD 1080/60p Video(see my Amaz review on that if curious), I FINALLY found a camera that takes INCREDIBLE pictures.

    The Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR 16 MP Digital Camera with 20x Optical Zoom (Black) is a home run and will definitely stay in my family for the next 5 years for sure, just as the Kodak stayed with me and my family for almost 7 years.

    This Fuji F770 EXR camera has been a joy to play with on my first day of use. After the battery charged for first time (took about 2.5h), I started taking random pics all around the house and some outside of the window. The menus are a bit quirky at first, but I quickly got used to them very quickly and the camera itself is very easy to use, even for someone with mid-tech skills (I am advanced on technology knowledge, and this was so simple that I expect someone with basic understanding of tech to figure this out fast).

    After a whole day playing with the camera, I can say this one is staying and won’t be going back! I will continue to update this review as the days go by, but here are first impressions.

    Top 10 Positives:

    1) Sexy camera! Batman got nothing on this camera…. I wonder if Batman has one of these strapped to his belt..? 🙂

    2) Pictures are SHARP AND CLEAR, if you are using the right mode for the scene! I cannot stress the importance of this enough after the Sony HX9V’s horrible coloring of my orange cat and over-washed pics and the Panasonic Lumix ZS20’s almost 100% blurry picture rate!

    3) Tons of fun “scene” modes to use. Unlike many other newer cameras, the flash IS indeed an option in almost all of these. This means I can customize (ex: “cat mode” with flash produces very nice, fast action pics… “sports mode” with

    I have to admit, I LOVE choosing my own settings, and that is fun for me, just as I used to on my Kodak Z760. But the EXR mode does an incredible job as well for sharp and clean pics, and no need to change anything. 🙂

    4) Flash pops, but it moves forward, which creates space to hold camera with left index finger, which is a huge help to keep camera steady (see negative comment on this as well).

    5) The LCD screen is sharp and crisp!

    6) It is easy and fast to scroll through pics and delete bad ones. It is also easy and fun to zoom and see every detail (the 16MP sensor is unreal and very good!).

    7) Battery life is nice in long. I took well over 150 pics, most with flash and still had tons of juice left. I bought second battery in case I am on the road.

    8) 20x zoom in a tiny camera! It is a huge zoom and pics zoomed at 20x (*no “digital zoom” used, this is all lens and focus) came out 95% clear.

    9) Camera comes with a very very cool GPS system (not tested yet, but seems very good, like a homing beacon. Someone call Batman :).

    10) Fast moving zoom (despite some motor noise, but minor); fast camera time from off to on and ready to shoot. Fast LCD turn own screen.

    Top Negatives (mostly “quirks”, really):

    1) If I must complain about something, it would be the manual activation of the pop-up flash (you have to hit a button to make flash pop-up once before each use and once it is up, take as many pics as you want with flash just fine). The flash is regulated by camera’s sensor, the only thing you “activate” is make it “pop-up” once before use. That is it.

    Although some may view this as a negative, I actually think that it is a positive, as the automatic pop-up flashes can really be disruptive if you hold the camera as…

    The cable was a good replacement for my Fuji Finepix s3000. I was able to transfer images to my old Apple eMac.
