16 Reasons For

Fujifilm Has Good Camera Reviews

Based on 3,935 user and expert reviews, Fujifilm has good reviews for its digital cameras. Fujifilm also has good reviews specifically for its bridge camera digital cameras.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many comparable spec cameras that have been around for a similar time 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Coolpix L120[pl_1186_price], or the Coolpix L310[pl_1716915_price] both from Nikon which has better reviews.

Has an Image Stabiliser

Like most of the other digital cameras that were released around the same time as the FinePix SL 300, the FinePix SL 300 has an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other digital cameras with an image stabiliser to this digital camera and we think the Nikon Coolpix L120[plb_1186_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

Across all the cameras of this age and spec the digital zooms range from 2x to 130x, and the average digital zoom is 9.6x. At 6.7 times zoom factor, the Fujifilm FinePix SL 300 has a quite big digital zoom 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 6.7x digital zoom digital cameras currently available including the Fujifilm FinePix SL240[plb_1349973_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a digital camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might also want to consider the Sony DSC-HX400[plb_2173117_price] (126x) which also has a higher rating.

Electrical Viewfinder

This camera has an Electrical viewfinder, which is typical of many digital cameras of this age and spec. 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.
