Fujifilm FinePix Z3 review
Nov 16, 2009

The FinePix Z3 is a very nice and relatively slim and sleek looking camera (it uses a
3x Fujinon folded optivcs type lens) and comes with a PictureCradle (a dock for
connexting to a PC and can also be used for in-camera battery charging).

The design is quite stylish and pratical -a sliding lens cover protectys the Fujinon
zoom lens with a mode switvh at the top, battery and xD card compartment on the
bottom, and most controls are on the back.

Some unusuak buttons on the back include:FinePix menu (used for selecting ISO,
image quality and access to 3 special "FinePix Color" effects :STD, F-Chrome and
B&W) and a anti-blur button-more on this later.

Other buttons:
-playback
-wide/tele zoom control
-4 way navigator
-display/back

The menu system is easy to navigate.

Scene modes are plentiful and include:
-manual
-natural light
-natural light & flash (takes 2 photos-one without flash and one with flash)
-portrait
-landscape
-sport
-night
=fireworks
-sunset
-snow
-beach
-museum
-party

Other options include various continuous shooting functions, exposure
compensation, selectable white balance and AF mode.

ISO ranges from 64-1600

Anti-blur mode increases the ISO to counteract camera shake.

The image quality is very good.

I was really impressed with the FinePix Z3.

Problems:

None noticed
