Photoxels Editor's Choice 2009 - Compact Ultra Zoom
Photoxels Editor's Choice 2009 - Compact Ultra Zoom 

Category: Beginner Amateur

The Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR is Fujifilm's first compact long zoom, the world's slimmest 10x optical zoom and, at only 23mm (0.9 in.) thick, it is easily carried in a trousers or coat pocket. It features 10MP resolution on a 1/2 in. Super CCD EXR image sensor which allows you to optimize the image capture according to the scene: High Resolution, Wide Dynamic Range or High Sensitivity & Low Noise.

"Resolution Priority" uses the full 10 megapixel resolution to capture the scene in fine detail. For scenes with an extreme range between the brightest and darkest areas, "D-range Priority" simultaneously captures and combines two images to produce a single 6MP image with Wide Dynamic Range up to 800% so as to reveal detail in shadows and eliminate highlight burntout in bright areas. In dark scenes, "High ISO & Low Noise Priority" uses Fujifilm's pixel binning technology to capture a 6MP image with exceptionally low noise.

Set the camera to "EXR Auto" and the camera automatically recognizes the scene (selects the appropriate Scene Mode) and switches to the correct sensor mode. For more manual control, select Aperture-Priority mode or Manual mode.

Film Simulation Mode simulates the distinctive look of 5 different film types: PROVIA (Standard), Velvia (Vivid), ASTIA (Soft), Black & White, and Sepia. Besides the standard AE Bracketing, the Fujifilm F70EXR also has Film Simulation Bracketing and Dynamic Range Bracketing.

A 10x wide-angle optical zoom (27-270mm equiv.) is perfect for capturing wide landscapes and large group shots as well as long telephoto shots. CCD-shift Image Stabilization helps reduce blur at the long focal lengths. LCD is 2.7-in. (230K dots) with wide-viewing angle. Movie recording is 640 x 480 pixels at 30 frames/sec with monaural sound.

With the new Multi Frame feature, you just press the shutter once and the camera automatically takes a rapid series of exposures, analyzes them, and then aligns them to produce a single frame. Two new shooting modes take advantage of this new feature:

  1. Pro Focus Mode - the camera takes one picture focused on your main subject (typically a portrait), then a number of pictures at different focus points to produce an out-of-focus background.
  2. Pro Low-Light Mode - the camera automatically takes a series of four high-sensitivity & low-noise exposures and then combines them into an image with less noise than the single exposures.

Super Intelligent Flash lets you take macro shots with the ideal balance of flash output and sensitivity. Integrated in the Auto mode, this next-generation flash system captures both the subject and background in bright, clear details over the full flash range, including ultra close-ups.

If you thought the compact long zoom digital cameras were too big and heavy to carry, the Fujifilm F70EXR packs a 10x wide-angle ultra zoom in a slim and pocketable body, perfect for travel and as a carry-anywhere digital camera. Now equipped with EXR Technology for low-light capability.

With a Two-year Canadian Manufacturer’s Warranty.
