From the Manufacturer
With a good quality FUJINON 20× optical zoom lens, plus a powerful new EXR-CMOS II sensor with extra fast Phase Detection AF and an EXR Processor II, the F900EXR offers near instantaneous reactions and excellent functionality.
Super-fast response times
The F900EXR's new "Intelligent Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system" focuses in as little as 0.05 seconds*. when employing the new Phase Detection AF which uses special new pixels that have been added to the EXR-CMOS II sensor. Its speed ensures that your subject will be captured at the precise moment you want it to be, avoiding missed photo opportunities. The camera automatically switches between Phase Detection AF and Contrast Detection AF depending on the subject and scene, guaranteeing superb ease-of-use and fast, accurate, autofocus whatever the shooting conditions.
The powerful 16 megapixel EXR-CMOS II back-side illuminated (BSI) sensor has been engineered to ensure that there will be enough light available for Phase Detection AF at larger apertures and in circumstances where the angle of incidence of light is high.
In addition, the EXR Processor II more than doubles the performance of the first-generation EXR Processor. With a super-fast startup time of 1.1 seconds**, an interval between shots of 0.5 seconds**, and burst-mode rates of 11 frames/seconds** (max. 5 frames), the F900EXR offers fantastic response times that make it a joy to use and ensure you should never have to worry about missing that special shot again.
What's more, you can take advantage of the superb capabilities of the EXR-CMOS II sensor and EXR Processor II just by selecting FUJIFILM's EXR AUTO mode. In this mode, the camera has the ability to automatically optimise output by choosing between 108 pre-determined scene types and adjusting the settings to suit the scene for hassle-free, high-quality results.
20× optical zoom and Intelligent Digital Zoom up to a 40× zoom
From 25mm*** (wide) to 500mm*** (telephoto), the F900EXR offers an impressive zoom range packed into a very slim-line camera body. With the ability to combine the 20x optical zoom with the Intelligent Digital Zoom allowing magnification up to 40×, the F900EXR will capture crisp images of subjects at an impressive distance.
Featuring advanced CMOS-shift image stabilisation which reduces the blurring which often occurs at long zoom ratios from camera shake or subject movement, the F900EXR is built to help you take good quality long zoom shots. With its superior grip for additional hold, you will feel in total control when you're snapping away on your travels.
Wireless Image Transfer to smartphones and computers
The F900EXR's new wireless feature lets you transfer photos and videos**** from the FinePix F900EXR to smartphones, tablets, and computers. For first time, via Wi-Fi®*****, FUJIFILM is able to offer a means to back up your photos on your home PC. Just install the free "FUJIFILM PC AutoSave" software onto your PC and select which folder you want the photos to back up to, and then by linking your Wi-Fi Router and the F900EXR camera you will have set up a very simple to use backup for your photos on your home PC.
To connect to smartphones and tablets you will need to download the free dedicated "FUJIFILM Camera Application" to your iPhone, iPad, or Android™ smartphone or tablet device to transfer up to 30 pictures at a time from the FinePix F900EXR. The app also lets you download videos****, expanding the range of options available for enjoying pictures taken with the camera. Pictures stored on the camera can be viewed and selected for download on large smartphone or tablet screens for a smooth download experience. No wireless LAN access point or complicated ID or password entry is required, and once pictures have been downloaded to the smartphone, it's a simple task to upload them to social networking sites.
High-quality pictures and videos**** can be uploaded hassle-free to the smartphone or tablet of anyone who has downloaded the free "FUJIFILM Camera Application".
Record Full HD movies, thanks to the EXR- CMOS II sensor
Shoot video footage in Full HD at a smooth 60 frames per second with improved Phase Detection AF without losing any of the superior colour reproduction qualities offered by the EXR-CMOS II sensor with high bit rate. Video recording can be started with a single press of the dedicated "Movie recording button". You also can record high-quality sound during filming using the built-in stereo microphone.
Optical zoom and still image photography are available during video recording. Plus friends and family will always be in focus thanks to the face- tracking autofocus feature, which even tracks subjects that look down or away.
The Intelligent Hybrid AF is active during video recording for fast, precise focus. The camera also offers a Scene Recognition for video recording feature that automatically adjusts camera settings for landscapes, close-ups, night landscapes, portraits, backlit portraits, and night portraits for high-quality, hassle-free results with a variety of subjects.
This fully featured camera makes photography a snap
The FinePix F900EXR offers "Advanced Art Filters" for hassle-free access to innovative forms of artistic expression. You can preview these on the LCD before you take your shot.
- Toy Camera – Create shaded borders as if you were taking a photo on a toy camera
- Miniature – Add top and bottom blur for a diorama or miniature effect
- Pop Colour – Emphasise contrast and colour saturation
- High Key – Enhance brightness and reduce contrast to lighten tonal reproduction
- Low Key (NEW) – Create uniformly dark tones with few areas of emphasised highlights
- Dynamic Tone – Create a fantasy effect by dynamically-modulated tonal reproduction
- Soft Focus (NEW) – Create a look that is evenly soft throughout the whole image
- Partial Colour – Retain one selected original colour and change the rest of the photo to black and white. Colours can be selected from red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple for dramatic effect
Further improvements have been made to "Advanced Anti-blur" mode, in which the camera takes four shots in rapid succession at high sensitivity settings and combines them using advanced image processing technology to reduce the effects of blur: it now works effectively with moving subjects for even more beautiful blur- and noise-free shots in low light and at high zoom ratios.
Combine two shots using "Multiple Exposure" mode for a unique effect. Superimposed over the view through the lens in the monitor, the first shot serves as a guide to composing the second shot, allowing more accurate composition and giving you a better idea of how the picture will turn out for unique, creative works of art.
The "Motion panorama 360" feature makes it easy to record dynamic, seamless 360° panoramas. And "Film simulation" lets you choose from five different combinations of colour gamut and tonal range, just as you used to choose the appropriate Fujifilm colour reversal film.
Extra clear display and superb ease-of-use for a variety of shooting modes
Its bright, high-precision, premium 3.0inch, 920,000-dot LCD monitor offers a Monitor Sunlight mode for enhanced viewing in bright sunlight and a greatly improved viewing angle, thanks to a special film overlay employed. The improved viewing angle allows you to take photos from higher angles and makes it easier to show your photos/videos to a group of people crowded around the camera.
Additionally, frequently-used options can be assigned to the camera's "E-fn" or extended function button for enhanced ease of use.

O.K. Let's kick off this review with looking at what's good about this camera:-
Overall build quality - The F900EXR has a really nice high quality feel to it, ergonomically it fits nicely into one's hand and it looks good. One thing to point out is that if you have very large hands this camera and its buttons may be too small for you, but for the most people like myself with average size hands, or people with small hands, this camera fits like a hand in a glove.
Hi-Resolution Monitor Screen - Put simply, it's lovely; images and video displayed on the camera's monitor screen have a real wow factor to them, with great colour, contrast and clarity; top marks here.
Customisable function buttons - A good and very usable feature: I set my `Fn' button for Quick ISO selection and the `E-Fn' for quick access to continues shoot, dynamic range, metering modes and white balance.
Wi-Fi Upload - I like its Wi-Fi ability to upload pictures directly to one's PC using one's wireless router; although setting this option up can be something a task in itself and you have to download a bit of software from the Fuji web site.Read more ›
I've a Fuji F70exr also (still working to this day) and a Fuji XS-1 bridge camera, both are also EXR models
The F900 is a good "8 megapixel camera" but an average 16mp one. Ignore the number, and try some settings to get the best out of the camera. Once set up you'll get consistently good images in bright and lower light levels.
I'll summarise with a pros and cons at the end of the review, and start with the settings first:
At the full 16mp resolution in anything other than really good light, image quality will quickly drop off, even in raw once the ISO levels increase the noise does, and after extensively testing the camera at 8mp and 16mp the differences are so marginal in most situations that I can say in confidence shoot the camera in 8mp (M image size setting)
I would suggest P mode, half resolution (M which is 8mp) and fine. DR should be set to DR400% (you can leave it on auto if you want but DR400 is ideal) Auto ISO to 800 or 1600, if you are using flash you might want to limit the ISO to 800 at most. You can leave the flash at auto so it only uses it when it needs to, or for daylight fill in shots you can use force flash (fires every time) I use Provia, I find Velvia too punchy for me (avoid it for people shots too)
For raw shooters you can get 8mp raw files too.Read more ›
This camera fits nicely in the hand and is small enough to carry in a case on the belt without being too bulky. Alternatively it will fit in a jacket pocket comfortably, but I'd say be careful of the delicate lens cover because it seems like it may damage easily.
All the buttons are easy to access, and the mode dial is angled back on the top which makes it that bit more convenient. And the battery life, though I can't put any hard and fast stats onto it yet, seems pretty impressive.
The camera powers up and switches off very swiftly too - a great time-saver if you spot something you want a photo of quickly.
So on to the mechanics of the camera, and clearly the manufacturer has again put a lot of thought into making it top notch. The picture quality is nice and vibrant, and the stabiliser works great so that even on full 20x zoom you can get a great image free from blurring. And what about that zoom? That's 20x optical, meaning even at full zoom your image isn't going to lose definition. I can point it out of my window and get decent pictures of the birds that visit our garden with very little effort.
As is generally the case, the photo modes are selectable, giving you as much or as little control over the settings as you like. Unless you're a keen photographer you'll probably never need to go manual because the auto mode selector is so intelligent that it's very rarely going to get it wrong. There are also various special effects that can be applied - my favourite of which is the partial colour feature - if you want to play around with extras.
Actually, I can really only think of one downside to this camera - but it's a big one. The movie quality is shocking.Read more ›
