(based on 7 ratings)
Brand: Fujifilm
Located in: Digital Cameras (All)
Fujinon Lens Technology
The S700 features a 10.0x Optical Zoom with a 35mm focal range equivalent of 38-380mm. Bring your subject closer and clearer with high quality Fujinon lens technology.

Picture Stabilization
Fast moving subject? No problem. Fujifilm's Picture Stabilization technology utilizes the heightened sensitivity of the FinePix S700 at ISO 1600 and high-speed shutter settings to prevent camera shake or freeze subject movement, keeping blur to a minimum. This easy to access feature (selectable on the mode dial) let's the FinePix S700 choose the correct light sensitivity and best-matching shutter speed automatically, for the highest quality digital pictures.

i-Flash Intelligent Flash
i-Flash fine-tunes flash output for shooting with high sensitivity settings. It recognizes scene conditions and determines the optimum flash output to ensure superb results. Subjects in the foreground appear natural, and background detail is bright and clear. The difference is especially noticeable in the natural facial tones of people in your pictures, in close-ups and group photos alike.

2.5" LCD display and Electronic Viewfinder
The FinePix S700 features two different ways to frame and view your shot. Choose from either the large, 2.5" 230k pixel LCD Display, or the .24" 230k pixel Electronic Viewfinder. Both offer a 60/fps refresh rate, and a brilliantly bright and detailed view of your image in either shooting or playback mode.

Dual Media Slot Convenience
The Finepix S700 features a xD/SD compatible slot, allowing the use of either xD Picture Card or SD media to store and transfer your photos. This new capability assures compatibility with a wider variety of applications than ever before, and allows users to choose the media technology that is right for them.

Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S700 7.1MP Digital Camera - Black:

I bought my camera in June of this year. I was able to film my son at graduation as he walked across the stage and immediately go back to taking pictures. I was so impressed. Someone else was obviously liking it too because in August someone stole it. I was devastated. I promised myself that I would buy myself another one and that is just what I am going to do. I miss that camera and so does my family because I was taking the best family gathering memories to share with others.

Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S700 7.1MP Digital Camera - Black:

Great little camera for the price. It does fantastic B & W shots. Macro is poor in color modes but excellent in B & W mode. BE CAREFUL and DO NOT DROP!! I have gone through 2 of these and broke them both by dropping them. Even a fall from 1 foot is enough to smash the LCD monitor. I'll buy a 3rd because it's a super bang for the buck. I'll do the extended warranty this time.

if you want bang for your buck then this is a good camera. it is easy snap and shoot and produces quality images. the lighting is the cameras biggest flaw, but is looked over by casual users.

Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S700 7.1MP Digital Camera - Black:

I bought this camera less than 6 mos ago as an upgrade from the Finepix 2650 and while it was superior to it, I'm already in the market for another one.

As other reviews tell, this camera shoots absolutely GORGEOUS outdoor photos in good light, but indoors it's worthless... the images turn out so grainy even all the Paint Shopping - in the world don't make them look good.

The zoom is nice as well and lets me capture birds high up in the trees in my yard, but my primary reason to buy it was to take pictures @ the Flaming Lips New Year's show -- and while it managed some reaaally nice pictures -- I still had to take HUNDREDS to get the good ones and I would prefer to find something else that would allow me to focus on quality and not quantity.

Another advantage over my 2650 is the superior quality of the videos it shoots. The 2650 vids don't even have sound, but not only does this camera shoot sound videos: the sound isn't completely overwhelmed in noisey situations. I was able to capture a video of a guy proposing to his girl on stage at the concert and then contact them later and offer them the video... they replied back that they will be using it at their wedding reception.

So... it's a good camera, but it's not as impressive as they made it look 6 mos ago (I mean, look how much the price has already gone down in that time).

I'm ready to get serious with my photography and this camera just isn't going to keep up.

Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S700 7.1MP Digital Camera - Black:

I have been a casual user of cameras for years and in August I decided to get a point and shoot camera that had slightly more advanced pictures for learning. I was essentially looking for a camera that would give me some SLR features without having an SLR to experiment. While this camera still has lag time as a point and shoot it has walked me through learning aperture usage, shutter speeds, natural light photos and many other of the basic enthusiasts skills. With this camera I have taken some incredible pictures and it has carried me from a casual user to an absolute fanatic. I highly recommend this to a person who is a casual user but wants some advanced features or to a beginner who is "learning the ropes".

This camera fulfilled my desires and more. While it will never take pictures as good as a true SLR it has opened the door to macro pictures, landscapes and action shots and still has more to offer.
