Fujifilm Finepix F450
Review Date: March 22nd 2005
The Fujifilm FinePix F450 is the top of the range square-styled digital camera in the Fujifilm range. The Finepix F450 replaces the 3 megapixel Finepix F420 that I reviewed in August 2004. The F450 adds a number of extra features, the most obvious being a new larger 5.2 megapixel sensor. In addition, the F450 is even smaller and lighter than its predecessor, yet can still squeeze in a bigger 2 inch LCD screen. Fujifilm have also extended the range of the optical zoom lens on the F450 to 3.4x, equivalent to 38 - 130mm on a 35mm camera, and added a low sensitivity setting of ISO 80. I really liked the older Finepix F420, so have the improvements to the Fujifilm FinePix F450 resulted in an even better camera? Read my extensive review to find out.
The recommended retail price of the Fujifilm FinePix F450 in the UK is £299.99 and in the US it is $399.99.
