Fujifilm FinePix S7000 Review

Review Date: Aug 23, 2004

Category: Prosumer - Advanced Amateur

Fujifilm FinePix S7000

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This Fujifilm FinePix S7000 Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified.

Lifeguard On Duty: 1/550 sec., F7.0 and ISO 200
Lifeguard On Duty:
9mm, Programmed Auto, Pattern, 1/550 sec., F7.0 and ISO 200

The Fujifilm FinePix S7000 Zoom is intuitive to use, and it is easy to obtain great images in Programmed Auto mode.

With 6x optical zoom, 6.3MP resolution, full exposure flexibility, and beautiful colour reproduction, the S7000 provides an easy-to-use entry into the prosumer category.

The all-black body looks very professional as well as being unobstrusive. Construction is high-quality and handling and feel is superb.

OriGenial Seal of ApprovalThe FinePix S7000 wins our OriGenial™ Seal of Approval for the way it has implemented its controls, EVF, Menu System, Manual Focus, etc. into a package that is both intuitive and enjoyable to use. Basically, the camera gets out of the way and allows you to concentrate on the picture. Very few digital cameras can make that sort of claim.

Image quality is comparable with other 6 megapixels resolution digital cameras but the use of a high ISO 200 and interpolation of the 6MP to 12MP output probably account for somewhat noisier images. If you are moving up to a prosumer model, you will want to take a look at the S7000; it offers everything you need to learn photography, and it's all implemented in a well-designed package. If you are a pro and looking for a smaller digital camera than your bulky dSLR, you will find the S7000 an easy transition. We recommend you both check out the image samples for yourselves to see if the somewhat noisier images (when viewed at original size) are an issue for you or not.

All in all, the Fujifilm FinePix S7000 is truly one of the most enjoyable prosumer digital camera I've used. Some cameras just seem to be like that and I find the S7000 to be especially ergonomic, intuitive, and so simple to use -- almost point-and-shoot simple! And the manual features are there, a simple button press away. The EVF is one of the best (though Fujifilm needs to add extreme low-light capability to it) and the large viewfinder makes a huge difference in how easy it is to compose and concentrate on the images you want to take.
