21 Reasons For

One Industry Award

PhotographyBlog.com concluded that concluded that they would endorse this camera and gave it their "Recommended" award.

Good Expert Reviews

Expert review site PhotographyBlog.com scored this Fujifilm digital camera 80 out of 100.

Fujifilm Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

On average Fujifilm bridge camera digital cameras have good ratings as do all digital cameras built by Fujifilm.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on digital cameras of this spec and age. 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 compared this digital camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Kodak Pixpro AZ421[plb_2515884_price] which is cheaper; or the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS[plb_1410250_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
