|Fujifilm FinePix Z2 digital camera review : It was hardly surprising when Fujifilm came up with a follow up to the successful Fujifilm FinePix Z1 camera. The first model from the Z series of cameras was already an innovative piece of digital technology and the Fujifilm FinePix Z2 has been developed further. With 5.1 million pixels, the Fujifilm Z2 camera can guarantee attractive enlargements and thanks to the integration of the Super CCD HR image sensor developed within their company, Fujifilm can also guarantee excellent pixel quality.
Fujifilm FinePix Z2 - 3x Optical zoom lens
Fujifilm has found enough space is this compact design for a 3x optical zoom lens with a focal range of 6.1 - 18.3mm that is equivalent to a 36 - 108mm zoom lens in a 35mm format camera. As well as the optical zoom, the Fujifilm Z2 has digital zoom-in options with which you can reach a maximum enlargement factor of 17,1x. The Fujifilm FinePix Z2 is meant for users who want to capture their environment in an extremely simple way and who also have an eye for an attractive piece of designer technology. The Fujifilm Z2 also has various pre-programmed scenes that can be used to capture a wide variety of situations.
Fujifilm Z2 - Super CCD image sensor
Fujifilm has amassed an impressive series of digital cameras in their portfolio. There is something for everyone, from amateurs to professionals. The style icon segment to which the Fujifilm Z2 belongs is extremely competitive. Fujifilm can distinguish itself in the first place by its use of the special Super CCD image sensor, an image sensor which has allowed Fujifilm to demonstrate that it has this component well under control on more than one occasion. The Fujifilm FinePix Z2 compact camera also stands out from the competition thanks to the application of Real Photo Technology. This new technology came into being with the combination of the 5th generation Super CCD HR sensor, an entirely newly designed high quality Fujinon lens and a new lightning fast RP image processor, resulting in a perfectly attuned combination that works together flawlessly.
Fujifilm Z2 camera - 2.5 inch LCD display
The large format 2.5 inch LCD screen on the back of the Fujifilm Z2 is the part that photographers will spend the most time on. The 2.5 inch format is ideal for sharing pictures and for replacing the optical viewfinder that has been left out of this digital camera. We have noticed that the optical viewfinder is being replaced by a large screen more and more often, and in my opinion, this is a positive development. You could even describe this LCD screen as 'intelligent'; it adjusts itself to lighting circumstances, its brighter in dimmer light conditions and more subdued in bright light.
Fujifilm FinePix Z2 digital camera review
The stylish design and the combination of Real Photo Technology with the 5 Megapixel resolution make for interesting specifications. Fujifilm has understood that there is more than just having a good eye for an interesting design and that features aimed at raising picture quality must not be neglected. The Fujifilm FinePix Z2 digital camera can ride on the successful introduction of its predecessor, which has already given it a leg-up on its way to becoming another success story.
