Fuji Finepix 4700


The Finepix 4700 only has a 2.4 megapixel CCD, but it uses a special Super CCD with octagonal-shaped sensors to deliver 2400x1800 pixel images that are the equivalent to those of a hypothetical 4.3 megapixel camera. Such claims are normally taken with...

FinePix 4700 Zoom


The image quality of the FinePix 4700 is mostly very good, although I found a disappointing amount of multi-coloured noise (graininess) in neutral mid and shadow tones (the silver-grey car pictured here), and greens were somewhat over-saturated....

Fujifilm FinePix 4700 Zoom

Fujifilm FinePix 4700 Zoom


Back in January I received an email from an industry insider, it contained a PDF product sheet for Fuji's latest digital cameras. One thing blew me away, "4.3 megapixels". Reading over and over again all I could see was 4.3 megapixels, design wise the...

Design, Build quality, Looks ; Unique 4-way direction controller & LCD ; Full metal lens cover ; Fast USB connectivity ; Supplied batteries and charger ; Excellent ergonomics, well positioned and though-out controls ; Fast startup and processing ;...

Annoying inability to have LCD come on automatically on power-up ; No real manual controls (shutter priority or aperture priority) ; Uncertain battery life ; Weak flash ; Average image quality, obvious interpolation and lack of definition...

The 4700Z was certainly an interesting camera, a design of two opposites.. Great design, build quality and ergonomics. It's great to see digicam manufacturers thinking about how we actually use the cameras rather than just bolting a button here or...

Fuji FinePix 4700 Zoom Camera


The shirt-pocket sized FujiFilm FinePix 4700 digital camera has a very high 4.3 megapixel resolution that reproduces professional quality 8x10 prints. Besides being the first camera to feature Fuji's new Super CCD technology, the 4700's diminutive size...

Fuji FinePix 4700 Zoom


Shiny as a sterling-silver cigarette case, the FinePix 4700 Zoom should please shutterbugs looking for an eye-catching camera. The FinePix simulates a bubbly personality - its big, round status panel flashes a cheery "Hello!" when you power up and...
