Review Date: May 5, 2006

Fujifilm FinePix F470
Click for a larger view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Fujifilm FinePix F470 features 6.0 megapixel resolution, 3.0x optical zoom, and an extra large 2.5-in. (115,000 pixels resolution) LCD screen. It is housed in a sleek, aluminum-finish body that is only 19.7mm (0.8 in.) thin.

The Fujifilm F470 differs from other Fujifilm digital cameras in that it does not use the 5th Generation Super CCD HR image sensor but opts for a more standard Square-Pixel CCD image sensor instead.

The LCD screen has a fast refresh rate of 60fps for smooth images. It shoots VGA movies at 30fps with monaural sound. It comes with an internal memory of 16MB. Exposure control is Program AE with 10 additional Scene Modes.

Fujifilm claims a shutter lag speed (after AF/AE lock) of 0.1 second and start-up of 1.7 second. The FinePix F470 comes with a rechargeable NP-40 battery. PictBridge™ technology allows you to print directly to any PictBridge-compatible printer without going through a PC.

The Fujifilm FinePix F470 should appeal to those looking for an easy-to-use point-and-shoot.
