Fujifilm Finepix F10 6.3MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom
From the Manufacturer
From the Manufacturer Do you really get the images you want? The Fujifilm FinePix F10 6.3 MP digital camera is loaded with features to ensure that you do, including 3x optical zoom, Real Photo (RP) Processor technology, a 2.5-inch LCD display, and a wide variety of exposure options.
Real Photo Technology
The superb optics of the Fujinon lens collect light and precisely form the image on the 5th-generation Super CCD HR, which works in tandem with our newly developed RP (Real Photo) Processor to perform highly sophisticated processing of the image data at ultra-high speed. The result is an incredible degree of sensitivity with very low noise. Even at the maximum pixel resolution with the highest sensitivity, the resulting photos are vividly natural and beautiful. Fujifilm Real Photo Technology is making it possible to take the photos as never before.
Innovative RP (Real Photo) Processor
- All the advanced signal processing know-how of the acclaimed FinePix S3 Pro packed in the IC chip for uncompromising image quality in a compact digital camera.
- Two cycles of sophisticated noise reduction processing for high-quality images even at high ISO settings
- Ultra-fast processing for "no-wait" operation, imperceptible shutter time lag and shorter shot intervals
- Energy-efficient signal processing for longer battery life and more shots per charge
- New contour correction processing for clearer contrast with more natural resolution
Boasting a maximum sensitivity of ISO 1600, the new Super CCD HR combines with the noise suppression of the new RP Processor to fully exploit the high image quality and resolution of 6.1 million recorded pixels.
- Easily take beautiful photos indoors, outdoors even at twilight and under other low-light conditions without loss of definition or nuance.
- New built-in Anti-blur program takes advantage of super-high sensitivity and faster shutter speed to automatically suppress blurring from "camera shake" or movement by the subject under dim light conditions.
The extra-large 2.5-inch LCD monitor provides a spacious approximately 115,000-pixel canvas to compose your photo, check settings, and playback the beautiful results. Sensing ambient light, the Auto Gain function automatically adjusts LCD brightness, or you can manually tune brightness with the Low Light View button for optimum viewing indoors or outdoors. Plus a host of new shooting functions including the Post Shot Assist Window that lets you take the next photo while seeing the playback of previous shots, are supported by a totally new Shooting/Playback interface for more intuitive operation. Even when the camera is switched off, you can view your previous shots just by pressing the Playback button.
Approximately 500 Shots Per Charge
Enjoy as many as 500 shots without a recharge thanks to energy-efficient engineering and the high-power battery. On one full charge, take hundreds of photos at a holiday or business trip destination, free from battery worries.
.01-Second Shutter Response
The responsive FinePix F10 is ready when you are!
- Super-fast start-up time of only 1.3 seconds
- Shooting interval of 1.2 seconds
- Shutter release time lag of minimum 0.01 seconds
Quick and responsive, the Fujinon 3x optical zoom lens empowers you with a focal length equivalent to a 36-108mm lens on a 35mm camera. Capture the full flavor of the scene with wide angle or zoom in for a tight close-up. Combined with the 6.2x digital zoom, you can take advantage of a total zoom ratio of 18.5x!
Smart and Speedy AF
AF Assist Illuminator
Enjoy enhanced AF ( Auto Focus ) accuracy when shooting under low-light conditions. And in darker scenes, the improved AF Assist Illuminator automatically projects a patterned beam of light further than ever to assist the autofocus and bring subjects as far as 4.0m away into sharp, clear focus.
High-Speed Shooting Mode
With built-in improved High Speed Shooting mode, there are no more lost photo opportunities. With this mode, the time required for AF is approximately half of normal AF mode.

I take it with me whenever I leave home, even shopping and eating out! I captured four little kids sitting on the hearth at a "Cracker Barrel" lined up like ducks with big smiles..no flash, candid shot! I have great shots of shore birds as close as 6" from my face in mid-flight (used bread) and movies of pelicans crashing the water for a meal. When was the last time you really had a ball taking pictures? Now, I'm home in the northeast in March..cold,still snow...but, I play my movies of the waves and the gulls and I have a smile on my face. What more can a camera do?
The seller was reachable by both email and phone, and he did respond to my concern about the missing card. When I did receive the memory card some time later, it was one that had even more memory than he had said he would provide. Overall, I ended up feeling pretty satisfied with the product and the seller.
While neither thin nor stylish, the F10 truly excels in picture quality. Whether used indoors or outdoors, the F10 takes sharp pictures with very pleasant colors. If you ever used Fuji's color film in the past, you know the company is famous for true-to-life color reproduction on film. This F10 carries on this tradition and the pictures it takes are very pleasing to the eye.
The most amazing part about the F10's excellent, superb picture quality is there's very little noise even at high ISOs, such as 400 or 800. (I'll explain ISO in a bit.) At 1600, the highest setting, you'll notice some noise when you view a picture at its full resolution. However, when you print an ISO 1600 picture from the F10 at 5x7" or smaller, the print quality will still be excellent.
(ISO refers to the sensitivity of the camera's sensor. In the old days of film photography, it referred to the film "speed." It was also known as the ASA rating before it became an international standard. The higher the ISO setting, the less light you need for a proper exposure, but also the more noise, or digital specks, you get in the final picture. This phenomenon is a law of physics.)
The bottomline is, F10 takes amazingly beautiful pictures. I rate its picture quality higher than my 6.1MP digital SLR, the Nikon D70. I also rate it higher than all my previous compact digital cameras from Canon, Casio, Minolta, Nikon, and Sony. I cannot describe how much I'm in awe with the F10's picture quality performance.
In short: if you want a compact digital camera that takes truly excellent pictures, you should just get an F10.
There are two reasons for the F10's top-of-the-class picture quality: 1) its CCD sensor (the camera's eye) is 1/1.7" in size, which is bigger than most compact digital cameras' sensors; 2) it uses new-generation Super CCD technology developed by Fuji -- there are actually a total of 6.63 million pixels on the CCD sensor, of which 6.3 million are displayed in the final image, which means the extra 330,000 pixels are used to provide additional information about exposure and color. This extra information, even though not visible in the final picture, helps the camera's ADC (analog-to-digital circuit), which is the camera's brain, produce an awesome picture.
Add to the big CCD sensor a superior 3x Fujinon lens (Fujinon is Fuji's brandname for its line of camera lenses) and Fuji's know-how in reproducting eye-pleasing colors, you get picture quality that will make everyone happy.
The F10's excellent high-ISO performance also means you can take natural-looking portraits indoors without resorting to the harsh white light of the camera flash. You know how it is: you take a picture of a group of friends indoors, and everyone in the front looks like Michael Jackson (the guy who bleached himself) and the rest in the back look like dark-gray wolves hiding in the forest. The F10 has a "Natural Light" mode which suppresses the flash, jacks up the ISO, and takes a picture that looks soft and pleasant. If you did this with most other digital cameras, you'll get lots of digital freckles on your friends' faces. With the F10, the result is much more pleasing and the freckles much less noticeable, especially in final print (unless you print a poster the size of Niagara Falls).
The F10 can also take movies. You choose from two resolutions: VGA (640x480), which is the default, or QVGA (320x240). The movies are taken at 30fps so they are pretty fluid. The VGA resolution means you can actually use this as a camcorder -- just make sure to get a large xD memory card. (See my review of the Fujifilm 1GB Type M xD card for some details.)
Now, if you are a control freak type, the F10 may not be right for you. This camera is designed as a point-and-shoot, or as they call it, a foolproof photo machine. You don't get many manual controls. You can't control shutter speed or aperture. You can't focus manually. Even the image quality and resolution settings are simple: whereas other brands let you set quality (i.e., JPEG compression level) and resolution separately, on the F10 you have a total of six choices that encompass both quality/compression and resolution.
I *am* a control freak, but I don't mind the F10's lack of manual controls because, 1) I have my Nikon D70 digital SLR whenever I need ultimate "artistic" controls, and 2) I bought the F10 as a point-and-shoot for the times when I'm too lazy to want to make any manual adjustments. You should ask yourself how important manually setting focus or adjusting aperture/shutter speed is for you when you consider the F10.
What else is there to say? Oh, the F10 is quite easy to hold. It's not ultra-thin or ultra-compact, so it's actually easier for me to hold. It has a large 2.5" LCD screen which acts both as the viewfinder (to compose the picture) and playback screen. It's sharp and bright (and can "gain up" to superbright in low light situations) and displays fluid motions. The F10 lacks an optical viewfinder (which some photo purists will insist on having) but does have an AF-assist lamp to improve autofocus in dim light situations.
In terms of ease of use, the F10 is very easy to pick up and go. You almost don't need to read the manual to get started. On the other hand, almost all controls are accessed via a menu system, which is not the best kind of control scheme in the world. The user's guide is your typical Japanese-translated-into-poor-English type you'd expect from a Japanese manufacturer.
In summary, like the other reviewers have pointed out, this camera ranks very high in the picture quality department. As long as you are comfortable *not* having manual controls other than ISO setting and exposure compensation, I bet you'll be very happy with the F10's picture quality. Its exterior styling doesn't excite anyone, but as columnist David Pogue of the New York Times (and Macworld) points out: in photography, it's the inside that should count -- and he endorses the F10.
BTW, the F10 is made in Japan, unlike other similar-priced digital cameras which are usually assembled in Indonesia, Thailand, China, or the Phillipines.
After running around the house and snapping a bunch of pictures, I see some strange characteristics. You will have to judge for yourself what this means.
Indoors in Auto mode, the camera seems to prefer to use the flash but still pushes the ISO up to 800 or 1600. With the sensitivity this high there are noise artifacts in the image. It appears the camera is giving priority to the aperture, or maybe it always forces the shutter to 1/100th and uses the ISO and aperture to adjust the exposure. I would rather it use a slower ISO for better image and color.
Also, in the 800 and 1600 speeds I see red showing up in the image where it shouldn't. Taking pictures of items with blue colors seems to cause some red noise to show up.
I also noticed in one of my pictures a section with a large black field had a large white spot on it (not a reflection). Looked like a bad pixel. But in other similiar pictures that area was fine.
If I can understand what this going on then I will come back and edit this review. For now I would consider this camera with caution.
