Fujifilm Finepix V10 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 5.50 (out of 10)
Review: "The Fuji Finepix V10 ($349) is shaped like a square, but Fuji definitely threw in a few curves behind the scenes. The V10's two biggest features are its SuperCCD HR sensor and its large 3-inch LCD display.

Initially, the SuperCCD HR was marketing as a sensor which could produce ultra high resolution photos, but the image quality was lacking. Now, Fuji is taking advantage of the sensor's low noise levels to produce much cleaner images than other cameras at higher ISO sensitivities. The sensor was impressive on the FinePix F10, but Fuji's using a different one here, so we'll see how it performs later in the review.

Photo quality was a mixed bag: it really depends on the situation. In normal outdoor shooting, the V10 took very nice photos, with accurate color, good exposure, and pleasing sharpness. In lower light levels the camera will want to crank up the ISO, and if it gets above ISO 400 then things start looking more like Monet paintings than photographs."

Review: "The Fujifilm FinePix V10 is the world's first digital camera with built-in games - yes, you heard that correctly, games. It also features 5 megapixels on Fujifilm's SuperCCD, a big 3 inch LCD, ISO sensitivity up to ISO 1600 and a 3.4x optical zoom lens. Fun isn't everything (referring to the built-in games, not using the camera) so let's find out how the Fujifilm FinePix V10 performs in other aspects now.

The V10 features a good lens with slightly more zoom than most 3x zoom cameras and a SuperCCD which results in fairly good photos but despite the nice lens, the macro mode leaves something to be desired and ISO 800 & ISO 1600 photos look fairly unreal."

Review: "A first-class 3-inch LCD, good high-ISO photo quality, and some useful, quirky features separate the ultracompact Fujifilm FinePix V10 from the pack, a lure for snapshooters who want a camera with its own personality. However, its 5-megapixel photos don't rise above the crowd, it lacks manual exposure and focus adjustments, and the minuscule controls will frustrate all but the most dainty-fingered photographers."

Digital Camera Info 6.67  02-08-06 Read Full Review
"The Fujifilm FinePix V10 is one very nicely designed digital camera. Its huge display offers enormous comfort when taking pictures or viewing your captured moments. It is just great to see the colourful images on such a big screen. Although there is almost no space left on the back of the camera for the necessary buttons I find the spot just below the monitor a perfectly chosen place. The resolution of 5.1 Megapixel is less than competitive brands have introduced in their compact designed cameras, but thanks to the high quality Super CCD HR image sensor and the combination of the Real Photo Technology Fujifilm offers a more powerful combination. Improving the image quality instead of simply increasing Megapixels proves to be far more worthwhile, at least in this stage..."

Review: "Like its recent predecessors, the V10 employs Fujifilm's Real Photo Technology, which is designed to remove digital noise or "graininess" from pictures shot at high light sensitivities. With this camera's ability to shoot at up to ISO 1600 - which is an extremely high sensitivity rating for a camera in this class - that technology is certainly put to the test. The camera also boasts a 3.4x optical zoom, and a multi-frame playback that lets you see up to 30 of your pictures at once.

There's a lot to like on the Fujifilm FinePix V10. It's a sleek and snazzy snapshooter with a huge 3-inch LCD with very good resolution that makes composing shots on the live screen and image playback a joy. The Fujifilm V10 is also reasonably responsive, powering on quickly and moving briskly from shot to shot so you're always ready to take pictures."

Digital Camera Review -----  05-27-06 Read Full Review
Preview: "The new Fujifilm FinePix V10 is an ultra compact 5 megapixel point & shoot digita camera with a 3.4X optical zoom (38mm-130mm equiv) and a large 3.0 inch high-resolution (230,000 pixels) LCD screen. Fuji claims the stylishly square little V10 substantially reduces image noise via the high efficiency Super CCD HR sensor and Fuji's proprietary Real Photo Technology (which automatically subtracts noise from captured images).

For digital camera manufacturers the holy-grail in the digicam wars is a camera capable of capturing high resolution, noise free images, even at higher ISO settings. The ongoing search for better ways to surpress/remove/manage noise is almost as important in digital camera product development/marketing as the continuing push for higher resolution (more megapixels). Consumers benefit from all this research & development because cameras that consistently produce lower noise can capture more detail at higher ISO sensitivities. Shooting at higher sensitivities, combined with faster shutter speeds, allows users to avoid the blurry images resulting from camera shake/subject movement and the low contrast, fuzzy, un-natural look of images shot in dim/low/indoor light. Does Fuji's Real Photo Technology work? Check back here in a few days for the complete Fujifilm Finepix V10 review."

Review: "It's not every day you come across an ultracompact digital camera that has a very large screen and also plays games. The Fuji FinePix V10 ($349 list) is a 5.1-megapixel camera that offers a distinctive 3-inch, 230,000-pixel color screen—perfect for viewing 30 thumbnails at once and playing the camera's four included games. Although the picture quality isn't perfect, this ultracompact takes good pictures and offers a lot of features.

The Fuji FinePix V10 is an excellent model to kick off the V series. It takes good pictures, despite a bit of underexposure and purple fringing here and there. The Natural Light & With Flash setting is extremely handy for snapping flash and nonflash shots in succession, and you'll find yourself using it most of the time."

Review: "The FinePix V10 offers a stylish and well-made compact digital camera to the masses with superb noise control and even better image quality. Issues surrounding the compromised controls (due to the gaming functions) may be minor to some, more worrying to others, but at least they’re confined to the non-shooting controls. In short, if superb image quality in a lightweight pocketable package is where you’re at, the V10 is where you should be."
