FinePix F401 Zoom


the small lithium battery doesn't have the life span of larger models, so it's worth investing in a spare one

Fuji Finepix F401 Digital Camera Camera


WHAT'S HOT: Wrapped in a finely crafted, brushed stainless-steel case, the F401 has a design that immediately catches your eye. Roughly the shape of a tin of sardines, it comfortably fits into a pocket or small bag--ideal for photographers who like to...

The F401 lacks some features that most digital cameras have. There's no quick image review and delete mode, for example, for rapidly removing bad shots. But flipping a switch puts you in playback mode, where you can quickly delete unwanted images. You...

Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, Fujifilm's chic-looking camera captures big shots.

Fujfilmi FinePix S3000 Zoom Review


The Fujifilm FinePix S3000 Zoom has a recommended retail price of £279.99 / $399.95

The Fujifilm FinePix S3000 Zoom is a camera of two halves (bear with me as I use this football analogy...). In the first half, it impresses you with its stylish, well-built exterior that is...

Fuji FinePix F401


Slim and ultra-compact, the Fuji FinePix F401 is a stylish digicam that's ready for travel just about anywhere. The F401 is small enough for shirt pockets and evening bags, and easily fits into one hand. Thanks to its retractable lens, its low-profile...

Equipped with a 5.7-17.1mm lens (equivalent to a 38-114mm lens on a 35mm camera), the F401 offers a true, 3x optical zoom. Aperture ranges from f/2.8 to f/11.6, depending on the zoom setting, and remains under automatic control. The F401's autofocus...

Fuji FinePix F401


The "deal" with the SuperCCD is that the individual light sensors on the SuperCCD are arranged in a different pattern that on traditional CCD, allowing for a higher density. That's how a 2.1 Megapixel SuperCCD produces images with 4 million pixels. Of...

Small, stylish metal body ; High quality pictures in most cases (esp. when downsized or printed) ; Quick startup time, minimal AF/shutter lag ; Above average movie mode ; Improved FinePix Viewer software

Noisy images at higher ISO settings (esp. compared to other SuperCCD cameras) plus normal SuperCCD artifacting at interpolated resolutions ; Disappointing night shot ability ; Playback mode just OK ; No manual controls to speak of ; No AF illuminator ;...

While not really a standout in any way, the Fuji FinePix F401 is still worth a look. It offers very good photo quality (more so at the native 2MP resolution), good color, a small and stylish metal body, and robust performance. The negatives include the...
