Fuji Digicams Making Waves!

By: Jayson Pablo

Fujifilm is a Japanese company known for its Photographic film and cameras. It operates 223 subsidiary companies for research, manufacture and distribution of products with manufacturing facilities in Asia, Europe and North America. The products are distinct in their uniform containers.
The FinePix S700 offers some very powerful features, like a 7-megapixel CCD image sensor, 10x optical zoom lens (38-380mm), high- resolution 2.5-inch LCD and EVF (Electronic ViewFinder), Picture Image Stabilization mode, VGA (640x480) 30fps movie mode with image stabilization option, high ISO capabilities (up to ISO 1600), all packed in a compact SLR style shell. This camera also includes a combination xD-Picture card and SD memory card slot. While it can be used as a simple point-n-shoot camera with its Auto, Scene, and Program modes, the S700 also offers various advanced exposure settings such as Shutter priority, Aperture priority and full Manual modes.

Thus, this model can be used by both beginners or photo enthusiasts alike.
The SLR style body of the S700 offers a nice comfortable feel, thanks mostly to the deep rubberized hand grip. Its controls are well organized and professional in feel. The versatile f3.5-f3.7 10x optical zoom lens provides a generous field of view from 38 - 380mm in 35mm equivalence. From power-on to the capture of your first image takes about 1.8 seconds. Shutter delay, the elapsed time between pressing the shutter and capturing an image, is almost instantaneous.
The S700's offer a wide sensitivity range of ISO 64 to ISO 1600. All users will enjoy the smooth, essentially noise-free images shot at ISO 64 - 200, while sports shooters will appreciate the ability to shoot full- resolution images at ISO 800, and 1600. While image quality suffers at high ISO settings, the ability to capture blur free images when the flash can not be used is very useful and having an image with noise is better than not having one at all.
With so many digicams flooding the market, FinePix S700 seems to be a very capable and appealing . With 7-megapixels of resolution, a versatile 38-380mm 10x zoom lens, loads of useful exposure modes, great performance, and comfortable SLR style body, the S700 is hard to beat.
