Suprised by the high quality pics!
17 September, 2012
I enjoy collecting cameras, so I couldn't pass up a deal on this one.
Most of the non-DSLR cameras I have are Panasonic, so this was an opportunity
to try a new brand.Despite the fact that the sensor is as small as most of my Panasonics,and that it has 14mp crammed in it(usually a recipe for image noise)Fuji clearly makes a superior sensor than Panasonic.Images taken at iso 800 are as good as panasonic cameras taken at 200.The fuji lens quality was also a big suprise, it gives the various Leica's Panasonic uses a run for their money!
I tested the camera against my EOS 5D yesterday. It was CLOSE...only a very slight edge to the 12.9 mp 5D since it was very slightly cleaner of an image, and only by a little. Every thing is well thought out from High Def Video to zooming while filming. I wish the zoom was from the lens and not a p/s style power zoom but thats the only thing I would suggest, everything else is perfect.
Great Job Fuji!!!
