Lens System

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

Across all the medium megapixel cameras that were launched more than two years ago the optical zooms range from 0.34x to 65x. The Fujifilm SL300 has a quite big optical zoom (30 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to this digital camera.

There are a number of other 30x optical zoom cameras currently available that you might want to look at including the Canon SX500 IS which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the Samsung WB2100 (£125) (35x).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD Video

Like most of the other digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years, the Fujifilm SL300 does not support Full HD video.

We compared all the other cameras which also support Full HD video to this digital camera and we think the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the DSC-WX80 both from Sony or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60 are also worth considering.

1280 X 720 Pixels Video Resolution

The Fujifilm SL300 supports a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of the most frequently found video resolutions of 640 x 480 pixels (which is also supported by this camera). In addition, this Fujifilm digital camera supports a video resolutions of 320 x 240 pixels. A video resolution of 1280 x 720 is classified as HD and TVs supporting this resolution are referred to as "HD Ready". However the resolution is not as detailed as Full HD (1920 x 1080). Across all cameras that have been available for a comparable time to this camera the best video resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels and the worst is 320 x 120 pixels.

Display

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 3 inches, the Fujifilm SL300 has a relatively standard display diagonal compared to most of the other cameras of a comparable age and spec to this camera.

Alternative 3" screen digital cameras currently available that you might want to consider include because of their better review scores, the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the Nikon L120.

Digital cameras with a larger display diagonal that might be worth looking at include the Df (£2,039) (3.2" and higher rated), or the D4 (£4,225) (3.2" and higher rated) both from Nikon or the Canon ELPH 320 HS (3.2" and higher rated).
