Fujifilm FinePix S304


Styled to look like a baby S602, the S304 doesn't offer that much to the digital camera user apart from a 6x optical zoom and a large 1.8” LCD. That said, as a 3mp with a street price under £300 this offers an alternative to the Ultra Zoom range from...

Great Zoom, Large Screen

Hardly any other selling points than shrinking an old design

While the lack of options can be considered a bad think, to the beginner it will be welcomed. This is a camera that won’t confuse, but still give a user the benefit of a long optical zoom.

Fujifilm FinePix 3800

6X optical zoom; simple interface.

Low-res electronic viewfinder; noticeable shutter delay; hard to see the LCD in low light.

Its 6X optical zoom, decent images, and aggressive price make this camera a good but not top choice for point-and-shooters.

Digital Cameras - Fuji FinePix 3800 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications


Fujifilm produces a wide range of digicam models, from bare-bones entry-level models up to and including a high-end digital SLR. To my mind though, their greatest success has been in creating good-quality midrange cameras that sell at very competitive...

The 3800's Fujinon 6x, 6-36mm lens is the equivalent of a 38-228mm zoom on a 35mm camera. A small, plastic lens cap protects the lens when not in use, and tethers to the camera so you don't have to worry about losing it. The telescoping lens extends...

Should the FinePix 3800 be under your tree this year? Find out in our review

Very good photo quality ; 6X optical zoom in a lower priced camera ; Nice, easy to use interface ; Quick startup, shooting speeds ; Impressive redeye, night shot results ; Support for conversion lenses

No AF illuminator - poor low light shooting ; Lousy movie mode. Wide-angle only ; No memory for file numbers ; EVF hard to see in low light ; Bundle could be better

Although it has it's share of problems, the Fuji FinePix 3800 still gets my recommendation. The thing that will attract people the most to the 3800 is the 6X optical zoom lens. Behind the lens is a 3.2 Megapixel CCD which takes good quality photos. In...
