Fujifilm FinePix S20 Pro review

My father borrowed it from a friend to shoot holiday pictures. I was impressed with the results, so I bought the same used. (It was a great deal.) The camera has excellent dynamic range and great low-light performance. Shooting low light pictures you have to practice a bit (use higher ISO sensitivity), or use a tripod. My holiday pictures are sharp, not a single focus error.

Excellent dynamic range, ergonomics and build quality, lots of manual controls (F/11 aperture), RAW mode, good macro performer, fast continous shooting, accurate EVF, great low light performance, good focusing (w/o assist light), great movie mode, histogram, uses AA (4) batteries and CF card (not just XD card), good battery life.


Some noise - ISO200 minimum sensitivity, bigger shutter lag in manual mode (0,4 second), no resolution/ISO button, 1M resolution after RAW (why?), some chromatic aberration, no assist light, some white balance errors in low light (I only experienced it in forest), adapter required for filters.
