CNET First Look
Fujifilm FinePix F600EXRThe Fujifilm FinePix F600EXR is loaded with features, but its best results take some menu digging and patience.
Hey, there. I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor with CNET and this is a look at the Fuji Film Fine Pix F600EXR. And if you're really into playing with different shooting modes and settings you wanna check this one out. Without getting too bogged down in specifics its sensor design and processor give you improved low life photos and better dynamic range and lower in compacts. And you also get things like movie capture from full HD to low risk high speed settings for slow motion clips as well as some handy continuous shooting options. Though if you're afraid of menus and just looking for something to (lead?) in auto this probably isn't for you. As for actual physical features, it has an ultra wide angle range with a 50 net zoom, high risk 3-inch LCD on back and built in GPS for (geotech?) in photos but it also does this really cool augmented reality thing that will point out landmarks that you might wanna shoot. Unfortunately, it was slow to (??) to a signal. Photo quality can be very good but again you'll have to take full advantage of all the modes and settings to get the most out of it. It shoots in raw and raw (plush JPEGS?). So if you don't like Fuji's processing, you can always do it yourself. Even still if you're really concerned with how things look when photos are viewed in full size on the monitor. You might wanna skip these models simply because shots tend to be noisy and soft. Shooting performance is a bit mixed too while it's not super slow. It's not always fast. And so in the end, this is a nice compact mega zoom and I like shooting with it. But you'll have to be willing to really dig into its features and settings to get the most out of it. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Fuji Film Fine Pix F600EXR.
