14 Reasons For

Fujifilm Has Good Digital Camera Reviews

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

CCD Sensor Type

The FinePix SL 300 has a better sensor type than most bridge camera digital cameras that came out more than two years ago. This camera has a CCD sensor type, whereas most comparable spec digital cameras that came out around the same time as it have a MOS sensor type. 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.

A CCD sensor type is actually the best sensor type across all bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FinePix SL 300.

A MOS sensor type is the worst sensor type across similar types of digital camera.

It may also be worth considering one of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the Nikon COOLPIX L120[plb_1186_price], or the Fujifilm FinePix S4800[plb_1735658_price].

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The Fujifilm FinePix SL 300 has a built-in flash, as do most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared all the other digital cameras with a built-in flash to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon COOLPIX L120[plb_1186_price], and the Canon SX 50 HS[plb_1497435_price] is also worth considering.

Has an Image Stabilizer

The FinePix SL 300 has an image stabilizer. Most of the other digital cameras of this spec and age also have an image stabilizer.

There are a number of alternative digital cameras with an image stabilizer currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Nikon COOLPIX L120[plb_1186_price], or the Canon SX 50 HS[plb_1497435_price].

Quite Big Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 6.7 times zoom factor, the FinePix SL 300 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst comparable spec digital cameras of this age. Across all the cameras that have been available for around the same time as the FinePix SL 300 the digital zooms range from 2x to 500x, and the average digital zoom is 18x.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 6.7x digital zoom digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix SL240[plb_1349973_price].

If this camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Sony DSC-HX400[plb_2173117_price] (126x) which is also higher rated.
