Just as allways, we never realy hear how Fuji low light modes function in real world, and these features are never included in ranking the camera. If there are good 8MP low light photos taken with Fuji let us know. You put the sample picture with pro low ligt mode, but the crop is bright lighted. Why?

Another poor showing from Fuji. Its looks great but thats all. Top end camera phones produce a better image than this. I would rather still use my trusty F70EXR.
Its a real shame.

How bad do pictures have to be, to not get a “recommended” from a Photography site?

I can get ‘great value’ from the Wal-Mart site.

This is a comedy review.  A camera is for taking pictures yes?  This camera takes bad pictures, yes?  And you recommend it?!!

This site has become very unprofessional with a series of absurd reviews.  If you are frightened to offend the manufactures by giving an honest account then just shut down this website and do something else with your time as it’s not fit for purpose and you are just mugging off people with nonsense like this.

Possibly the unit should have been returned to Fuji as defective, in the sample images I looked at the the right 1/3 to 1/4 side are noticeable less sharp than the left.

Clearly someone must be buying this otherwise Fuji wouldn’t keep churning out basically the same camera as a year and a half ago but with another bolt on to the spec.
I suppose it’s marketed at the boys toys, top gear brigade. Reminds me of the PMPO vs RMS war from previous decades. “Says its 100w PMPO in the Argos book, so it must be good and loud.” Actually no, it’s only barley 10 watts RMS.
Come on Fuji, raise the bar a bit, you’re starting to get left behind mate.

Definitely losing the onboad GPS is a real negative. Having to sync to a smartphone for GPS coordinates is not usable. Granted you can sync AFTER you take the shot, take another throw-away picture, copy the GPS coordinates, scroll back to the keeper picture, and paste the GPS coordinates. It’s much easier to carry a stand alone GPS or smartphone app, record your tracks, and in post-processing, use software to link photos with coordinates based on the time stamp. Given the choice between wifi image transfer or GPS, I’ll take GPS.
