Fujifilm FinePix Z90: Verdict

Fujifilm has made a well-built camera that produces good images considering its price. Experienced photographers are likely to want something with a little more extensive specification, offering greater control. The FinePix Z90 is designed for the teenage and early twenty-something year olds, to whom the cameras style, touch-screen technology and simplicity is likely to appeal. If your photographic aim is capturing your youth on a budget then you won't go far wrong with the FinePix Z90.

We liked

The build quality really is superb for this class. The 3.0-inch touch-screen is responsive to a gentle touch and works well. With its slim design and no-nonsense layout and good images the FinePix Z90 can go anywhere and be used by all.

We disliked

Fujifilm is appealing to the Facebook and You-Tube generation; so why does the relevant software not work on a Mac. The Mac is their generation! As always, some of the shooting options do not deliver as well they ought to and are gimmicky.
