19 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on similar spec cameras that were launched more than two years ago. 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 camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L120 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The FinePix SL300 has a built-in flash, as do most of the other cameras of a comparable age and spec to the FinePix SL300.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other cameras with a built-in flash currently available including the Coolpix L120, or the Coolpix L830 both from Nikon which has better reviews.

Has an Image Stabiliser

The FinePix SL300 has an image stabiliser. Most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FinePix SL300 also have 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 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of cameras that came out more than two years ago range from 2x to 130x, and the average digital zoom is 9.6x. With a digital zoom of 6.7 times zoom factor, the FinePix SL300 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst bridge camera digital cameras of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 6.7x digital zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix SL240 (£177.00).

If you are looking for a digital camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to look at the Pentax X5 (£279.00) (7.2x), the Fujifilm FinePix S4800 (7.2x), or the Sony DSC-HX200 (52x) which also has a higher rating.
