19 Reasons For

Good Brand

Fujifilm has good average ratings for its bridge cameras as well as across its entire digital camera range compared to other brands.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on bridge cameras that were released more than two years ago. 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.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Fujifilm FinePix SL240[plb_1349973_price], or the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS[plb_1410250_price] which has better reviews; or the Sony DSC-H300[plb_1611594_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The FinePix SL300 has a built-in flash, as do most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the FinePix SL300.

We compared all the other cameras with a built-in flash to this camera and we think the Fujifilm FinePix S9200[plb_2145008_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other digital cameras which also have a built-in flash including the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS[plb_2412545_price], or the Sony DSC-H400[plb_2169604_price].

Has an Image Stabiliser

The FinePix SL300 has an image stabiliser. Most of the other bridge cameras that have been available for more than two years also have an image stabiliser.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with an image stabiliser and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix S9200[plb_2145008_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative cameras which also have an image stabiliser including the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS[plb_2412545_price], or the Sony DSC-H400[plb_2169604_price].

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on comparable spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We compared all the other digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory to this camera and we think the FinePix SL240[pl_1349973_price], and the FinePix SL240[pl_1349973_price] both from Fujifilm or the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS[plb_1410250_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the memory card type of this camera is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the Sony DSC-H300[plb_1611594_price] (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also cheaper.
