11 Reasons For

Easy to Use

One customer who bought this digital camera wrote that it was easy to use. Mr G R Binnington said in his review of this digital camera two years ago “Great camera, very easy to use” .

Good Brand

Fujifilm is one of the superior digital camera manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Fujifilm also has good reviews for its bridge camera digital cameras.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on cameras of a comparable age and type to it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

Across all the digital cameras that were released more than two years ago the digital zooms range from 2x to 130x.

Chart Edit

Electrical Viewfinder

This camera has an Electrical viewfinder, which is typical of many comparable spec cameras that have been around for around the same time as it. Most compact cameras do not have enough space to accommodate an optical viewfinder and use the display screen on the back as an electrical viewfinder.

Chart Edit

Supports One Camera File System

The Fujifilm FinePix S2995 has a greater number of camera file systems than most digital cameras that have been around for more than two years. The most frequently supported camera file system is MPF, but this camera file system is not supported by this digital camera. The camera file systems Exif are also supported by this Fujifilm camera.

The FinePix S2995 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other digital cameras of this age and type are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a digital camera that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Sony DSC-HX100V which also has a higher rating.

Not Waterproof

Most cameras of a comparable age and spec to the FinePix S2995 are not waterproof. The FinePix S2995 is no exception to this as it too is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

The Fujifilm FinePix S2995 does not have a GPS, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other digital cameras of this spec and age also do not have a GPS.

We think you might also be interested in alternative cameras which also have a GPS including the Sony DSC-HX100V which also has a higher rating.

Quite Low Megapixel Count

The average megapixel count of similar spec digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago is 16MP. With a megapixel count of only 14 megapixels, the FinePix S2995 has a quite low megapixel count compared to most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 14MP cameras currently available including the Fujifilm FinePix SL240 (£177.00) which has better reviews.

If you want a digital camera with a higher megapixel count then you might want to look at the Kodak Pixpro AZ251 (£94.99) (16MP).

Quite Small Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of only 18 times zoom factor, the FinePix S2995 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other cameras that have been available for a comparable time to the FinePix S2995. The smallest optical zoom of cameras of a comparable age and type to the FinePix S2995 is 1.3x and the biggest is 65x.

If this bridge camera camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Lumix DMC-FZ330 (£429.00) (24x), or the Lumix DMC-FZ200 (£279.00) (24x) both from Panasonic which also has a higher rating.

Only Features One Flash Mode

The number of flash modes featured on the FinePix S2995 is more than most bridge camera digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

The FinePix S2995 supports a maximum video resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. That's 75% less video resolution than the most common video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels (which is also supported by this Fujifilm camera).

A 320 x 240 pixels video resolution is in fact the worst supported video resolution across all bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years.

The best supported video resolution across comparable types of digital camera is 1920 x 1080 pixels.
