Fujifilm FinePix F600EXR First Look: Heavy on Features and Function

by Reads (154)

My initial impressions of the camera are positive. The controls are well-placed and easy to use, except for the dedicated movie button, which is set at an odd angle. The menus are colorful, logical and easy to view on the large LCD. The camera seems fairly quick, though there’s a two to three second delay between successive shots without the flash – not the fastest performance but not bad either.

Image quality is very good, with bright colors and dependable auto-focusing. Using EXR mode halves the camera’s maximum resolution to 8 megapixels, due to the pixel binning process, but images still seem highly detailed. Chromatic aberration (fringing) is well controlled. While taking movies, I appreciated the ability to zoom while recording as well as the camera’s continuous adjustment of focus, exposure and white balance.

While I’m impressed with the F600EXR’s outdoor image quality, I’m curious whether its relatively large sensor, use of EXR technology and back-illuminated CMOS sensor can consistently produce good looking images indoors, at higher ISOs, that are superior to those of most Point and Shoot cameras. Thus far, I’m pleased with my high ISO results.

I’m looking forward to exploring the F600EXR’s many features. All of that will be detailed in my upcoming full review. Meanwhile, here are some colorful outdoor images.
