Fujifilm FinePix F10 Review

The Fujifilm FinePix F10 uses the SuperCCD HR sensor like many other Fuji cameras of late but it does different things with the extra data collected by the sensor. Where previous cameras using this sensor would use the SuperCCD sensor to create high resolution (12MP) images, the FinePix F10 uses it for low noise high ISO shooting. In other words, the camera can shoot at 6.3 Megapixels at ISO 1600 -- something no other point-and-shoot camera can do.

The Digital Camera Resource Page today posted their review of this unique digicam and have this to say about it-
"In case you haven't figured it out already, I like the Fuji FinePix F10. A lot. While it may look like just another compact point-and-shoot camera, it's much more than that. It's most notable features include its great photo quality, high ISO shooting ability, large LCD display, and stellar battery life. It's got a few downsides but the positives outweigh them in a major way.

Photo quality on the F10 was excellent. I was consistently impressed with the output from the F10 -- and this is coming from someone who hasn't been a big fan of Fuji's recent efforts. If I was to complain about something it would be the above average purple fringing and occasional overexposure of some photos. The area in which the F10 really stands out is when the ISO is cranked up. If you're tired of blurry pictures, then this is the camera for you. The F10 can go all the way to ISO 1600 and the photos are still usable, though you probably won't want to print them at 8 x 10 or larger due to the noise. You can set the ISO yourself or just put the camera into natural light mode and let it pick the right sensitivity for you."
