Easy to Use

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was easy to use. Ld2.ciol.com wrote “30x optical zoom lens, its main USP and comes handy during landscape photography, especially those of distant objects like mountain peaks or a bird hopping on distant branch” in their Fujifilm Finepix SL300 review.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as 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.

There are a number of alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might also want to consider including the Fujifilm FinePix SL240[plb_1349973_price], the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS[plb_1410250_price], or the Sony DSC-H300[plb_1611594_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The Finepix SL300 has a built-in flash, as do most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to the Finepix SL300.

We compared all the other digital cameras with a built-in flash to this camera and we think the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS[plb_2412545_price], the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72[plb_1983697_price], and the Nikon Coolpix P600[plb_2176383_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has an Image Stabiliser

The Fujifilm Finepix SL300 has an image stabiliser. Most of the other cameras of this age and spec also have an image stabiliser.

It may also be worth considering one of the other cameras with an image stabiliser currently available including because of it's better review score, the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS[plb_2412545_price], the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72[plb_1983697_price], or the Nikon Coolpix P600[plb_2176383_price].

Quite Big Digital Zoom

The average digital zoom of cameras of this age and type is 9.6x. At 6.7 times zoom factor, the Finepix SL300 has a fairly big digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec cameras that have been around for around the same time as the Finepix SL300.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 6.7x digital zoom digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix SL240[plb_1349973_price] is also worth considering.
