Value and Verdict

Fujifilm FinePix Z900 EXR review – Value

Fujifilm Z900 EXR review sample image

The Fujifilm Z900’s asking price of just over £200 is similar to that of rival compacts, such as Panasonic’s FX77. Although image quality between the two is similar, the Panasonic just has the edge when the lighting is good, while the Fujifilm Z900 is the better option for low-light shooting. In many other respects the two do well to match each other, so if you’re interested in one you should probably add the other to your shortlist too.

Fujifilm FinePix Z900 EXR review – Verdict

Thanks to its large, responsive touchscreen and the way in which the
camera is operated the Z900 is an enjoyable model to use. True, its
images aren’t quite up to scratch on their default settings, but
high-sensitivity images turn out better than expected, making it a
useful and stylish option for a night out.
