25 Reasons For

Fujifilm Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

Bridge camera digital cameras produced by Fujifilm have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just bridge camera digital cameras) and found that Fujifilm also has good reviews across its entire range.

Good Connectivity

One Fujifilm FinePix S8400 reviewer said in their reviews that the Fujifilm FinePix S8400 was wifi compatible. Imaging-Resource.com mentioned in their review of the Fujifilm FinePix S8400 on expert website Imaging Resource.com two years ago “Built-in Wi-Fi wireless networking functionality can communicate either with iOS or Android phones”.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

Unlike most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that were released more than two years ago which do not support WiFi connectivity, the Fujifilm FinePix S8400 supports WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other cameras which support WiFi connectivity to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung NX30 is also worth considering.

Alternative digital cameras which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at include the Samsung WB2200F (£286.89).
