Easy to Use

One Fujifilm Finepix SL300 owner thought the Fujifilm Finepix SL300 was easy to use. Expert website Ld2.ciol.com wrote five years ago “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 review.

CCD Sensor Type

The Finepix SL300 has a better sensor type than most similar spec cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

This digital camera's sensor type (CCD) is in fact the best sensor type across all digital cameras of this age and spec.

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

There are a number of alternative cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might want to look at including the Fujifilm FinePix SL240[plb_1349973_price] which has better reviews.
