FujiFilm FinePix Z800EXR Review

Hot off the press today is Steve's Digicams review of the FujiFilm FinePix Z800EXR.

Steve tells us-

"Bottom Line - We were not real impressed with the Finepix Z800EXR. While the specifications looked very promising, there were just too many negative aspects of this camera, which makes it hard for use to recommend it. These included below average image and video quality when compared to other cameras of this price, poor battery life, above average noise at all ISO settings, a weak flash, etc. While the Z800EXR sports an affordable price tag of just $229 US, we feel you should take a look at various other sub $250 cameras before making your final purchase. Many of the offerings from Canon, Sony, Panasonic, and even Casio out perform the Z800EXR in many areas."
