Fujifilm FinePix F10 Review

In February 2005 Fujifilm announced the 6.3 megapixel FinePix F10, a camera with several unique claims to fame. For one thing it is the first of a new generation of Fuji cameras built around a new Super CCD HR sensor that doesn't use any interpolation to produce its 6 million output pixels (previous generations have produced images with double the amount of effective pixels on the sensor). Then there's the ISO 80-1600 sensitivity range, which comes thanks to a newly-developed 'Real Photo Processor' - as does the class-leading 500 shot-per-charge battery life and very fast operation (with a claimed 0.01 second shutter lag). Other features of note include a 2.5-inch screen, 3x optical zoom and VGA, 30 fps movie mode, but this is essentially a 'point-and-shoot' camera with little in the way of real manual control.

  • Newly-developed 1/1.7-inch Super CCD HR sensor with 6.3 million effective pixels
  • 3x optical zoom lens (36mm - 108mm equiv.)
  • 2.5-inch LCD
  • Wide range of ISO settings (80/100/200/400/800/1600)
  • VGA movie recording at 30 fps with sound
  • Fast start-up and operation
