Fujifilm FinePix F800EXR review – A full-featured compact

Launched in July 2012, the Fujifilm FinePix F800EXR is the latest in a line of cameras from Fuji, featuring an EXRCMOS sensor. Aimed at the upper end of the compact camera market, it offers features suitable for more advanced users and a lens focal range that is the equivalent of a 25-500mm lens in 35mm camera terms.  So is this camera all things to all people?

With a 16megapixel sensor, RAW image capability and an 8fps shooting speed, not to mention full HD movie shooting and a 320fps high speed movie option, the specifications of this camera would not look out of place on a high-end DSLR camera. Compared to its immediate predecessor, the F770EXR the main difference is the inclusion of WiFi functionality to make it possible to send images directly to a smartphone or tablet. Beyond that, the FxxxEXR family resemblance is very strong in this latest release.  With such a saturated market in compact cameras, the question is whether Fujifilm looked at all aspects of the camera’s performance or just added some new features to look nice?
