Fujifilm FinePix F505 Highlights

Perfect pictures in every situation
Thanks to a brand new hybrid sensor, the FinePix F505 EXR delivers extra fast, high quality results in a wide range of lighting conditions. The 16-megapixel sensor developed by Fujifilm is a clever combination of Back Side Illuminated CMOS (BSI-CMOS) and EXR technologies, which delivers superior results to a conventional sensor; particularly in low light conditions, and also offers high-speed shooting facilities and Full HD movie capture.

Light falling on ordinary sensors has to pass through a layer of wiring before it hits the light- sensitive photo diodes. This layer of wiring reduces light transmission. On the EXR BSI-CMOS sensor, however, the wiring layer is positioned behind the photo diodes so light sensitivity is vastly improved. Add to this the triple-layer EXR technology pioneered by Fujifilm in the F200 EXR and the result is a sensor that is capable of outstanding results, time after time.

Users can still select from the usual three different EXR shooting modes, or simply leave the FinePix F505 EXR to choose the best option itself by selecting Auto EXR. Those preferring to take control can pick from:
  • High Resolution mode where the sensor utilises the full 16 megapixel resolution for high quality results that can be printed out at A3-size without the need for any re-sizing using software.
  • Dynamic Range mode where the camera employs dual capture technology to provide a range up to 1600% - almost a full stop wider than any other camera. Two images are captured and then merged together to produce superb results on high contrast scenes.
  • Signal to Noise mode utilises Pixel Fusion, doubling pixels up to increase sensitivity. Coupled with the BSI technology, this mode delivers superb images in low lighting conditions.
Keep up with the action – no matter how fast it's moving
The FinePix F505 EXR isn't just clever; it's quick as well, boasting a range of features that will keep pace with even the fastest moving action without compromising picture quality.

RAW image capture
With the ability to shoot in RAW or in JPEG format (or both simultaneously), the F505EXR will have real appeal to those that want to be in true control of their images. By shooting in RAW mode you can ensure that you get the true uncompressed image just as the camera sees it.

Huge zoom range, tiny camera
It's a minor miracle that Fujifilm has managed to pack such a high level specification into the FinePix F505 EXR's compact dimensions, but it's even more impressive that the camera also features a 15x optical zoom.
Fujifilm FinePix F505   highlights
Wide angle (24mm) vs. 5x optical zoom (120mm) vs. 15x optical zoom (360mm)

Despite having a body that measures just 22.9mm wide, the zoom range extends from a wide-angle setting of 24mm through to 360mm (35mm equivalents) giving users a huge range of shooting options from sweeping landscapes through to tightly-cropped details. Plus, image quality and sharpness is assured thanks to the Fujinon lens and new triple core EXR processing engine that automatically reduces colour fringing and boosts corner resolution for uniform image sharpness.

Using the longer focal lengths can cause camera shake, but the FinePix F505 EXR has the bases covered fighting camera shake on three fronts. First, the sensor moves to counter any hand movements. Second, sensitivity is boosted using Pixel Fusion to allow faster shutter speeds and third, users can select “Advanced Anti-blur” mode when in EXR Auto where a sequence of four images are taken and then combined to provide one, shake-free result.

Full HD for stunning videos
People don't just want to capture their memories as photos any longer, there's a big demand for high- quality video capture too. Not only does the FinePix F505 EXR record videos in stunning Full HD (1080p) at 30 frames per second, it also boasts stereo sound for high quality audio and outputs the files in H.264 (MOV) format. Favoured by broadcasters and Blu-Ray manufacturers, H.264 produces file sizes that are smaller and more manageable than the conventional AVI format. What's more, they're compatible with a wide range of websites and applications, which makes it easier for users to share content on sites including YouTube.

New to the F505 EXR, Fuji's EXR SN mode is now available when shooting videos. “Pixel Fusion Movie technology” fuses pixels together to create superpixels which are extra sensitive to light (and therefore capture much crisper low-light videos with lower levels of noise.

And finally, if it's speedy video capture you're after, the F505 EXR also offers a class-leading selection of high speed video capture options. No other compact camera comes close to the F505 EXR's incredible 320 frames per second capture at 320 x 100 pixels. But if it's higher quality you're after, you can also capture the action at 160 frames per second at 320 x 240 pixels or 80 frames per second at 640 x 480 pixels.

Wave goodbye to pixellated graphics and menus
The FinePix F505 EXR's three inch rear LCD doesn't just benefit from an increased pixel count – now 460,000 – it also uses a brand new Rich User Interface, which dramatically enhances the user experience and kicks pixellated menus and graphics into touch.

By employing Vector fonts and graphics, camera menus and readouts use smooth text and icons. The graphics are scaleable so they take on the same appearance whether you're viewing on the read LCD or a 50 inch HDTV via the camera's HDMI output.

  • All-new 16 megapixel EXR CMOS sensor
  • 15x optical zoom covering 24-360mm (35mm equivalent)

Color: White Verified Purchase
I love this camera so far. I bought it for a photography class I am taking next semester and have already used it more than I thought I would

Comes with a free 4 Gb SD card

Has a GREAT picture, which is really the only important thing! The picture is better than my grandmas fujifilm that she paid $400 and I only paid $160

Has lots of different settings. When you put it on advanced it has a seamless panoramic setting. most panoramic settings you have to take three pictures and try to line them up just right and you always end up with two lines down the middle of your picture but this one you just pan the camera and try to stay level and then it calibrates the rest of it and blends it together and it looks seamless.

The EXR setting is amazing! the first day I got it my grandma had me take a whole bunch of pictures of a house she is selling and she needed inside and out. Different areas of the house were lighted different and it didnt matter, the EXR figured out the best setting it needed to be on to get the best picture and went there! the best part was that it could detect whether you were outside or not and it had the same quality picture everywhere. it didnt let so much sunlight in that it blared out the picture, and in low light it didnt turn out dark at all!

Its quite light weight for its size, but is heavy and sturdy enough that it doesnt seem chinsy
Another little thing that doesn't really matter much is that when you turn it on it seems all techy and futuristic :) the flash pops up and the lens covers snap inside and it makes a cool little noise. Its not needed, but appreciated by nerds like me :)

I really havent found any yet.

Color: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm an unusual and especially demanding camera user, but not because I'm an expert in photography. I take thousands of photographs a day to record historical documents for my job as a professional historian. Otherwise I'm a typical camera user with a typical knowledge about how digital cameras work - the exact kind of person who would be purchasing a high-quality point-and-shoot camera like this one. It's difficult to avoid superlatives when describing this camera. I really am very impressed with its quality and features.

The good:

1. This camera produces the best-quality photographs of any small(ish) point-and-shoot camera I have ever used. It's almost impossible to take a bad photograph.

2. I believe the reason the photos are so good (per my comment above) is that the auto mode, called EXR on the Fujifilm, is simply amazing. It's way better at doing its job than comparable auto features on other digital cameras. You don't have to be an expert at photography because the camera does all the technical work for you. It makes all the right adjustments in macro, aperture, white light, shutter speed, etc. If the room is dim, the photos are bright (as they would appear to the human eye). If the scene is bright, the camera adjusts accordingly to prevent washout. When the subject is lit by incandescent or, worse, fluorescent lights, the camera adjusts the white light filter to prevent those ugly yellowish or washed-out photos that you probably get with your current camera. These are things that all cameras are SUPPOSED to do, but very few compact cameras do it as well as this one.

3. The LCD screen is huge, extremely sharp, and unusually bright.

4. The shutter and auto-focus is very fast for a compact camera - almost instant, in fact.

Color: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Right out of the box my first impression was how sleek and cool the camera looked. I often like to see how intuitive a product is out of the box before I read any instructions and this is what I did with the Fujifilm Finepix F505. Was able to load the battery and memory card with no problem. The battery was nearly fully charged so was able to turn on the camera. The first thing I noticed was the popup flash is in a position that I would normally have a finger so it is something that I will have to get used to and make sure I am not holding my finger on the popup flash when I turn on the camera.

The LCD screen lit up with the setup. The LCD screen is bright, large and very easy to read. But I also noted that in low light and with the LCD screen on the back controls on the camera were a little hard to see. They could probably use some back lighting. The setup was short and sweet and still done without looking at the instructions.

So now for some pictures. I still had not looked at the instructions when I started to take some pictures with the setting the camera came with. Took a lot of pictures in different lighting conditions, subjects and range. Wow! Every picture was perfect! This has to be the CMOS sensor technology. With my previous cameras I was dumping more pictures than I kept. Keep in mind that I had still not read the instructions or made any changes to the camera settings.

I have not had the time yet to play with all the features the camera offers and I am now just starting to look over the instructions but it is obvious to me already that this is the best digital camera I have ever had. I also like the little battery charger that was included.
