Fuji MX-2700 Review
Hopefully these images will go some of the way to demonstrating just how small the MX-2700 is, held normally the rubber grip holds well against the inside of your palm with the wrist-strap safely wrapped over your wrist. My only gripe for people with larger hands was that you sometimes didn't know where to put your thumb and it can be fairly easy to turn the command wheel accidently, also easily done is accidently covering the flash with your middle finger.
(Left to right: Nikon Coolpix 700, Canon A50/A5/A5Zoom size, Fuji MX-2700)
Here's a comparison of the size of the MX-2700 against the Nikon Coolpix 700 and Canon A50 (same size as A5 and A5 Zoom). Both the 700 and A50 are slightly deeper and longer than the MX-2700 is tall.
Noteworthy on the base is the metal tripod screw-mount (although it doesn't run along the axis of the lens) and also that the SmartMedia cards can be removed without taking the camera off a tripod (because the card door is on the side of the camera).
Mini-Rear LCD Display
The mini display LCD on the back of the camera (just above the main LCD display) indicates the following settings (in record mode):
Compression mode, flash mode, macro mode, battery status, remaining frames and resolution (1800 / 1280 / 640).
Main LCD Display
The main LCD displays a live preview of the framed subject along with current frames remaining, camera mode and date and time.
It's big, sharp, bright enough to see in sunlight and has a fairly quick refresh rate.
Interestingly, in manual record you can't ever totally switch off the LCD, turning off the live preview still leaves the current camera settings displayed on the LCD with a black backround.
A fairly standard viewfinder with a hard plastic surround. The green indiciator flashes on a lack of AF lock or low light (also indicated by blinking "!AF" or a blinking hand on the main LCD). The light is steady for a good AF lock and good light.
I found the viewfinder small, very small, I guess that comes with the design but it's noticeably smaller to see through than (say) the Nikon Coolpix 700.
|This image represents the view through the viewfinder, the MX-2700 uses a circle to indicate the center of frame.|
