Fujifilm FinePix 6900Z Review

Fujifilm announced the FinePix 6900Z at CeBIT back in March this year. It utilizes the same 3.3 megapixel SuperCCD sensor we saw in the FinePix 6800Z (which we reviewed in April). Because of the honeycomb layout of Fujifilm's SuperCCD the camera outputs a 6 megapixel image, although you can also choose from 3.1 and 1.2 megapixel sizes.

Body design, layout and controls are based on the 4900Z, it has the same 6x optical zoom lens (35 - 210 mm equiv.) but now sports a 'cool' black body. Here is a list of the changes to the 6900Z since last years 4900Z:

  • 3.3 megapixel SuperCCD (produces 6 megapixel image)
  • Black body
  • Re-engineered focus ring (different ridge layout)
  • AF button which can be used in manual focus mode
  • New on-screen indicator for SmartMedia activity
  • Revamped menu system
  • B&W mode
  • ISO 100, 200, 400 instead of 125, 200, 400, 800
  • Two manual white balance presets (instead of one)
