First Look: Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP

1:27 /

A simple, inexpensive waterproof camera to keep poolside, the Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP is nonetheless lacking in photo quality and performance.

[ Music ] >> Josh Goldman: Hi I'm Josh Goldman CNET review Senior editor and this is a look at the Fujifilm FinePix Z33Wp. The Z33WP is a waterproof camera only down to 10 feet for up to 2 hours consecutively. So it's not designed for serious diving photography but more of a beach, pool camera. Like the rest of Fuji films Z series cameras this one is small and stylish. It's available in black, hot pink or this glowing green version. IT has a10 megapixel resolution with a 3X zoom lens sealed up behind glass and on back is a 2.7 inch LCD. To make room for that screen but keep the body small all of the controls are in 2 columns so if you're used to a more typical camera control layout will take some time to adjust to. All in all it's pretty easy to navigate though and you even get a button here at the bottom to go straight to recording VGA quality video. Unfortunately the photos and performance from this camera are not the best thought so consider this camera only if you need the waterproofing and you're on a budget cause it sells less than $150. Camera best suited for life as a secondary camera specifically for shooting in the rain and snow or at the beach and pool. I'm Josh Goldman [ Background music ] >> and that's the Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP.
