EXR-CMOS - Flexible and versatile image sensor
With Fujifilm's pioneering 1/2-inch 16 megapixel EXR-CMOS sensor at the heart of the FinePix F660EXR, users are guaranteed unparalleled image quality, whatever the lighting conditions. The unique sensor combines Fujifilm's EXR and Back Side Illumination (BSI) technologies to deliver superb results. The user can switch between three EXR modes to change the sensor's characteristics according to the lighting conditions, or let the camera optimise settings in the Auto EXR mode.
The camera's ISO mode can also be selected automatically and offers a range of 100 up to 3200, but also stretches to an incredible 12800 (Image size S only).
The Fujifilm EXR-CMOS sensor has also been redesigned to with a 30% reduction in digital noise over its predecessor, ensuring smoother tones in both highlight and shadow areas at higher ISO settings.
Get perfect results across the entire zoom range, from wide-angle compositions to dramatic close-ups.

The FinePix F660EXR's 3.0-inch LCD has an improved high-contrast screen for displaying clear images even when viewing the screen in direct sunlight. The 460,000 pixels on the LCD guarantee crystal clear images and movies and make it even simpler for users to assess exposure, explore the camera's menus and capture their unmissable moments.
The FinePix F660EXR manages to pack an impressive 15x optical zoom Fujinon lens (24-360mm equivalent to a 35mm camera) into its pocket-sized exterior, but for when that little extra distance is needed the camera has an Intelligent Digital Zoom function that doubles the focal range with no obvious drop in quality, thanks to the application of innovative image processing to boost sharpness in selected areas without increasing digital noise. Plus, with a close-focus distance of 5cm, users can capture close-up details for stunning macro photography.
For breath-taking landscapes or scenes rich in detail, the Fujifilm FinePix F660EXR has a wide-angle field of view of 24mm and even a seamless Motion Panorama 360 degree mode to capture scenes in stunning widescreen.
Go beyond still images
The FinePix F660EXR's brilliance is not limited to still capture: the camera offers 1080p Full HD movie capture at 30fps for seamless quality and adds Face Tracking. This ensures users' movies stay in focus, no matter where their subject is. Combining the best of Face Detection and Tracking Auto Focus to precisely follow subjects' faces throughout a scene, the FinePix F660EXR's movie functionality and stereo sound recording will captivate keen videographers of all abilities. A high speed movie option allows more creative users to slow down fast-moving action by shooting an amazing 320 frames per second.
Maximise picture-taking enjoyment
As well as the exciting new technological advances contained within the FinePix F660EXR, the camera offers many premium features that users have come to expect from Fujifilm's F-series of high-powered compacts. A full-complement of exposure modes enable users to quickly capture a scene without sacrificing image quality, plus the F660EXR also offers more conventional exposure modes such as aperture priority, shutter priority and full manual to take complete photographic control over images.
Fujifilm's traditional film simulation modes are also present and allow users to experiment with their creativity when capturing their adventures on camera, while those wanting to capture the action haven't been forgotten with the 'up to 11 fps' continuous shooting mode.
The FinePix F660EXR is available in three colours: black, red and blue.
Top customer reviews
* large lcd
* wider than usual wide-angle (equivalent to 24mm on 35mm cameras)
* 15x optical zoom
* accurate focussing on small subjects, e.g. a bird feeder in a big space outside
* effective stabilisation
* fast in use
* produces sharp, colourful shots in most conditions
* generally intuitive menus (contradicting some other reviewers - I found the camera easy to use)
* cleverly switches the sensor to 8 megapixels in low light where noise is often a problem
* surprisingly effective 360-degree panorama mode
* no viewfinder, but that's a common issue - the display was generally usable in bright light (use `sunlight' mode)
* zooming is almost TOO fast, making it hard to get the zoom level you want
* tends to over-expose at times, especially in EXR mode
* EXR mode sometimes produces over-warm images
* doesn't have as many tricks up its sleeve as some cameras, panorama being an exception
* video quality compares unfavourably with some other cameras, despite its HD claims
* there's a printed basic manual but the full manual is on CD, again in common with many cameras, sadly
* it's very easy to turn the mode dial by accident, especially when slipping the camera in/out of a pocket or case.
My conclusions are that, if movie capability is important, this isn't the camera for you. If, on the other hand, you want mainly to take high-quality stills, especially indoors, and value the wide angle, the F660EXR is an excellent camera at the price - just be sure to check the mode dial before each use and only use EXR mode in low light without flash.
Fuji have built a fine reputation in digital cameras, quietly getting on with releasing some excellent cameras over the years. Lens quality and sensor quality are second to none.
The screen is a generous size and works in daylight too.
My only reservation was with the movies - I was underwhelmed with them. Better than on many smartphones, but still a little disappointing.
The recent price drop makes this a no-brainer choice for a quality stills digital camera.
On paper this modestly sized Fuji should have stormed to the top of the superzoom leader board. I used to be a Fuji fan - using Velvia film stock and the venerable little f30 and f31 wonder cameras as DSLR emergency backups. Fuji can make some cracking cameras for sure. Is this one of them though?!
This model, the F660 EXR offers a 15X stabilised zoom lens, a 16MP equivalent EXR sensor, manual controls (but no raw mode), a decent 3 inch rear LCD, and a sack full of interesting features. However, Canon, Panasonic and Sony continue to lead sales figures of this kind of camera. The F660 EXR tries to please everybody - it goes wide (24mm), which is nice for landscapes and cityscapes, has reasonable telephoto reach (360mm) which is nice for wildlife/zoos/action shots of sports, etc., and has a lot of features, such as a lower resolution high ISO low light mode.
The thing is, there are already some very good superzooms out there (the Panasonic TZ series for example). Fuji's trump card here, they claim, is the EXR sensor technology, apparently leading to better colour fidelity and less high ISO noise. But are these claims true in practice? My testing of the camera has lead me to the following observations: Fuji's experience with film does seem to have helped them get some nice colours out of their digital cameras, and the F660 keeps up this trend, with punchy, vivid colours that are infinitely tweakable.
BUT, the lens sharpness is only so-so in comparison to other compact and bridge cameras I have experience with. One of the big attractions is the 24mm wide end, which beats some competitor superzooms, but unfortunately at 24mm the lens is not overly sharp. This is a problem, as the 24mm wide angle is one of the star features of this camera and people are likely to want to use it at this setting when they go on vacations, take landscape and cityscape shots, etc. For sure, it is not as sharp at wide angle as Panasonic superzooms I have owned and tried out, and most definitely not as sharp at 24mm as my trusty Panasonic LX3 compact. Paradoxically, at the long end of its focal length range the lens is actually pretty decent - so it's a nice little pocket camera for occasional action shots and zoo visits. Kudos to Fuji for this as many superzooms are very iffy at the long end.
High ISO shots benefit from the EXR technology and the option of reducing the resolution to 8MP, but they remain much more noisy than high ISO shots from micro four thirds, Sony NEX or DSLR cameras. This is what you would expect from a compact superzoom of course, but would-be purchasers do need to know that whatever claims Fuji are making about the technology in this camera, it is outclassed in low light by mirrorless cameras with larger sensors, such as the Panasonic G range, Olympus OM-D or E-P range and Sony NEX range. Of course those cameras are more expensive than this little Fuji. You are not going to want to take this camera beyond ISO 800 regularly if you are a pixel peeper or want to print large. This is common for superzooms but I point it out because Fuji make big claims about the EXR sensor technology and you need to cut through the hyperbole and appreciate that the camera is not a miracle worker.
So image quality is a mixed bag - at the 24mm wide end it disappoints, whereas the long end of the zoom is actually surprisingly good. Colour is nice, but resolution not great. High ISO is OK but not as ground-breaking as promotional material/claims would lead you to believe. For a superzoom its pretty good, but over ISO 800 don't expect to be able to print massive poster size prints without some post-processing to reduce noise, or else put up with noisy or mushy/soft images.
The biggest let down of all is video - the video from this camera is plain disappointing - noisy in low light and just lacking in resolution. Panasonic, Canon and Sony just do video better, even in compact superzooms. I don't think even the most positive reviewers here on Amazon UK could argue with that.
Taken together then the camera is what it is: a high value package that delivers plenty of bang for your buck - 24mm wide angle right up to serious telephoto zoom range, nice build quality, OK noise performance up to ISO 800. If you spend £100 or so more you will/can do better when it comes to wide angle lens performance, and video. Canon, Panasonic and Sony still lead the way in superzooms, but you pay more for the good models - they seem to have fitted better lenses to their rival models, and have worked out better processing to get the most out of their sensors.
So if this Fuji sits at the top end of your budget, and you are not looking for good quality HD video from a camera, go for it - it's well put together and will generally deliver pleasing results if you play to its strengths (avoid over ISO 800 if you want large prints and make careful use of the 24mm wide end of the lens). if your budget can stretch further and you value good HD video output and perhaps a crisper lens, I recommend looking at Panasonic's TZ range or the Sony HX range - you may pay a bit more but those cameras seem to be better superzooms in terms of image quality and video. It's a shame, as Fuji are doing some interesting things with their new mirrorless cameras, but this superzoom is not going to have rival manufacturers worried about losing market share.
So, to sum up:
PROs: 24mm wide angle, good build quality, nice colours,decent IQ up toISO 800 when EXR 8MP mode used, nothing else like it at this price point
CONS: 24mm wide angle setting is rather soft, the over-hyped EXR low light mode is not the miracle technology it is claimed to be, video is much worse than that from competitor models
This review is picking up a few 'unhelpful' votes - I presume from folks who have posted glowing reviews here or who have bought the camera and are delighted with it. I can understand that they have a different view but I'm not sure that they can honestly argue with my observations - is this camera genuinely good at 24mm, at high ISO, and is its video good? I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise but I notice that my observations gel with those of some of the major camera review web sites as well.
