Fujifilm FinePix F770 EXR review

The stylish travel zoom that's big on features, small on price

TODO alt text

The Fujifilm FinePix F770 EXR is a fully-featured travel zoom compact camera with a lot to offer the intrepid globe-trotting photographer.

With a versatile 20x optical zoom lens, built-in GPS, raw image capture, Full HD movie recording and 'shoot and sweep' panorama mode - to name a select few - you couldn't ask for much more from a camera in this category, particularly when you factor in its pretty competitive price tag.

We liked

The build quality of this camera is excellent; likewise the number of high-end features it has to offer, all for a very reasonable price.

We disliked

Image quality at higher ISO sensitivities shows room for improvement and the GPS system puts a real strain on battery life.

Final verdict

There's plenty to love about the Fuji F770 EXR and - with just a few caveats that we experienced during our testing period - overall, this well made, pocket-sized powerhouse leaves a very favourable impression.

On top of some excellent high-end features and full manual control, there's a great selection of automatic options and Fuji's versatile EXR sensor technology to boot. Suffice to say this is a very capable little camera that's well worth adding to your shortlist if a big zoom lens and a smaller price tag are among your top priorities.
