FinePix 4900 Zoom

 

In summary the FinePix 4900 is a very good camera for the keen photographer who wants to take full control of settings, or who specializes in sports and wildlife shots that require a medium telephoto lens

Fujifilm FinePix 4900 Zoom

 

Radical. Futuristic. I heard several descriptions leveled at the 4900Z while at Photokina 2000 this year. Certainly when Fujifilm first hinted and then later announced the 4900Z a lot of people oohed and ahhed at the design. Echoes of SLR, yet modern...

Good colours, sharp images, good resolution for a 2.4 megapixel CCD ; Good metering, fairly good dynamic range ; Big, high quality optical zoom (6x) ; Deceivingly small size & weight ; Manual focus ring (focus-by-wire) ; Electronic Viewfinder works...

ISO 125 doesn't solve SuperCCD noise ; Moire patterns on fine detail ; Soft images at default 2400 x 1800 resolution, better at 1600 x 1200 ; Not enough control over colour / tone camera algorithms ; Poorly positioned tripod mount ; Priced into the 3...

Fujifilm's 4900Z is a vast improvement over last year's 2900Z, a more advanced design, higher resolution, more manual controls (the majority of which accessable from the outside of the camera). The 4900Z is also surprisingly compact and light (indeed...

Fujifilm FinePix 4900 Zoom

 

The FinePix 4900 Zoom is an ultra-compact and lightweight digital camera that features a 1/1.7- inch Fujifilm SuperCCD with 2.4 million pixels in an interwoven pattern. Still image sizes are 2400x1800, 1600x1200, 1280x960 and 640x480 pixels and are saved

I see the FinePix 4900 Zoom as a very worthy competitor to other cameras in its price and resolution class, it's loaded with features and performance and takes great pictures. Which camera you buy is a matter of ergonomics and personal taste.   If yo

Fujifilm FinePix 4900 Zoom

 

It wasn't that long ago I reported on a fun camera from Fujifilm, the shirt-pocket sized FinePix 4700. The follow up for the photo enthusiast, the new FinePix 4900, brings the same serious digital picture qualities with added features...

Fujifilm FinePix 4900 Zoom More Serious, More Fun

 

This historical country chapel perched on a hilltop caught the last rays of the sun captured by the FinePix 4900 at its widest zoom setting. When transferred to Photoshop the darkly shaded areas of the image had a strong blue caste, but once...

Fuji FinePix 4900Zoom

 

There's something about a manual focus ring that sorts the cameras from the toys. The 4900Zoom gives you the best of both worlds with a motorised manual focus ring that lets expert photographers have as much control as possible. A second ring located...

ing the images in the camera is also a breeze with the fast zooming and panning feature

Fuji FinePix 4900 Zoom

 

What's in the Box

Good build quality ; Full manual controls (inc. white balance) ; Super fast processing speeds ; Uncompressed TIFF mode ; Amazing 6X optical zoom ; Hot shoe for external flash ; Impressive night shots

No sound in movie mode ; Scene mode a bit limited ; Not totally sold on Electronic Viewfinders ; Zoom and scroll feature in playback mode could be better

How does it compare to the Olympus C-2100 Ultra Zoom, which is the same price? That's a tough one. The Olympus clearly out guns the FinePix with it's 10X optically stabilized zoom lens. It has most of the same features as the FinePix such as manual...

nice camera! Great camera!

 

I've only had this camera for a couple days, but so far I REALLY like it. My old camera was a casio exilim that I got about 4-5 years ago, and it finally bonked, so my daddy got me the finepix. One of the first things I noticed was that the finepix has...
