The Fuji FinePix F70EXR is billed by the manufacturer as the slimmest 10x zoom camera on the market and, at less than 23mm in depth, it is certainly very easy and convenient to carry around. The zoom is great for magnification, being the equivalent of 27-270mm in 35mm terms, but I found it to be a little fuzzy at the long end. There is also a 4x digital zoom for anyone who wants it.

The FinePix F-series cameras are renowned for their low-light (high ISO) capabilities and the F70EXR should be no exception, sharing as it does the 1/2 inch sensor of the F200EXR but with 2 million fewer pixels crammed onto it. Also the EXR technology is great for combating noise on higher ISO shots.

Obviously the F70EXR is small, compact and lightweight and, in general, feels great to hold, with all the controls being conveniently placed – apart from the slim-line flash which I found was close enough to the shutter-release button to obscure with my fingers occasionally.

Picture quality is easily as good as other cameras in this price range – better then most for Dynamic Range - and there are a range of resolutions and aspect ratios to choose from, allowing for 3:2 and 16:9 formats as well as the standard 4:3 format.

The Mode Dial gives allows the user to shoot in EXR mode (with three enhanced filtering modes), Full Auto, Full Manual and SP, which gives 15 preset Scene modes including Pro Focus for optimum focussing and depth-of-field, and Pro Low-light, which takes up to 4 exposures and merges them to reduce blurring and noise.

The F70EXR also provides Dual Image Stabilisation, Continuous Shooting (up to 4.8fps depending on resolution) and a Super Intelligent Flash, and a range of Playback options that include Trimming, Rotating, Sorting, Red-eye Reduction and Voice Memos.

On the downside, there is no HD Video Capture (which many of its rivals have) and I found many of the functions unnecessary because they provide many different ways to achieve the same thing. This could be confusing for the beginner.

My verdict? A nice range of features but there are better options for the price.
