16 Reasons For

Fujifilm Has Good Camera Reviews

Bridge cameras manufactured by Fujifilm have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all digital cameras (not just bridge cameras) and found that Fujifilm also has good reviews across its entire range.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on digital cameras of a similar type and age to it. 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.

We compared this camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the FinePix S4800, and the FinePix SL240 both from Fujifilm which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Like most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that came out around the same time as the FinePix SL 300, the FinePix SL 300 has a built-in flash.

We compared all the other cameras with a built-in flash to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS is also worth considering.

Has an Image Stabiliser

The Fujifilm FinePix SL 300 has an image stabiliser, as do most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that are a similar age to the FinePix SL 300.

We compared all the other digital cameras with an image stabiliser to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the PowerShot SX40 HS, and the PowerShot SX50 HS ($484.48) both from Canon is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is typical of many similar spec digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS, or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 ($799.95) which has better reviews.

If the memory card type of this bridge camera digital camera is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Sony RX10 ($849.99) (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated).

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

If this camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Sony DSC-HX400 ($448.00) (126x) which also has a higher rating.
