Our canon Ixus (superb camera) packed in while on a short break in London so we urgently needed a replacement,
We usually do loads of research before buying anything, but did not get the chance here. After viewing a few cameras in a the nearby photography shop, the high def video facility swung it for us. we paid £120 for this in Oxford street, in hindsight way too much, but that is the price for not being able to do the market reserch before buying.
Anyway, I am an experienced photographer with a professional SLR as my main camera, but everyone who has seen these photos is disappointed with the results from the Fuji finefix Z70. ALL the shots are over exposed ( we were not just using the auto setting either). The focus is rubbish with a lot of the shots not useable at all, which is really annoying especially as this was a family trip. The shots that are in focus are way over exposed ( at least ½ stop and at times more than that). The colours are washed out and the noise on the shots is unbelievably bad, even in good light.
The camera is 12mp but to be honest the photos resemble ones taken from a mobile phone, yes they are that bad. I am trying to contact Fuji, but you can't e mail them, however judging by other reviews this is not a one off problem. We are disappointed as Fuji have a great name, hopefully we can get this camera replaced for a different one.
Have contacted Fuji this morning and they were quite frankly no use whatsoever and appeared unconcerned the the problems with their product
