The Fuji FinePix F800EXR is the newest camera in Fuji’s “f” series cameras. This line is known for its long zoom and compact shape. Fuji kept many features the same as the rest of this line. It has a 16 Megapixel EXR CMOS sensor, 20x zoom and 3-inch LCD screen just like the rest of the line. But Fuji decided to add a Wireless Image Transfer System feature to the F800 in hopes to keep up with ever-changing wireless technology. On the flipside, though, Fuji removed the built-in GPS that the rest of the cameras in this line retain. The F800EXR is available for around $300.
Fuji’s new F800EXR was designed to be a competent travel zoom style P&S digicam and this little camera does deliver in that capacity, it can capture images of just about anything – from expansive landscapes, to casual portraits, to “in your face” macro, to super telephoto shots. The F800 EXR is a winner for those users who can accept slightly soft images. Most photo enthusiasts understand that no camera with a 20x zoom is going to consistently produce critically sharp images. The F800EXR is a very good general purpose P&S digicam and it will dependably produce very good to excellent images for travelers, photo enthusiasts, casual shooters, family photographers, sports fans, and aspiring wildlife shooters.
