|Fujifilm FinePix Z2 - LCD display
Because there is no optical viewfinder of any kind, users more or less instinctively hold the camera a bit away from them. The large format LCD screen is fine as a viewfinder and in domestic light conditions the manual setting for the clarity of the LCD screen is not necessary. Taking photographs via the LCD screen, allows you to remain part of the moment and you don't have to skulk behind a camera. People around you often like this.
Fujifilm Z2 - Change settings
In addition to the A setting, there are several, very extensive possibilities to enable you to change settings to match your own ideas. All changes can be made and undone quickly and easily. Maybe the manufacturer thought that users of this type of camera wouldn't feel the need to change all sorts of settings, because the much used AUTO/exposure knob is totally missing. These changes need to be made in the menu and it has to be said that this can be done quickly and easily.
Fujifilm FinePix Z2 - Flash settings
Other settings can also be found and set quickly. There is a generous choice of flash settings that will work well in practise. Although the flash has enough effective range in the direct range, users shouldn't be too over-optimistic. The flash's format limits it somewhat and you would be advised to hold the camera closer to the subject. The menu button on the back is easy to operate and users can navigate through the menu quickly. The by now familiar F button is used for the Chrome setting - slide pictures that are very rich in contrast and extremely suitable for digital photos.
|Fujifilm Z2 - Auto-power off setting
Something you might have to get used to is the auto-power off setting. Although there are two choices when the camera can switch itself off, it is necessary to close and re-open the camera afterwards to get back into the stand-by mode. That is a bit roundabout way of doing things and requires extra action. The mode for looking at pictures taken can also be used if the Fujifilm Z2 camera is turned off and this is very handy! There is also an energy saving setting for the LCD screen. This setting can be very useful in some situations to save the battery.
Fujifilm FinePix Z2 - User friendly digital camera
Honesty bids me to confess that there are few other negative points in the operation. Everything is logical, quick and straightforward; you still have enough time to think about composition and the zoom, and the Fujifilm FinePix Z2 digital compact camera quickly feels like you can trust it. The menu is well ordered and can be sailed through quickly. Dealing with the supplied charger and interface for the computer and printer is also not complicated and will not cause any problems when you are using it. Fujifilm has also used a logical technique for this that anyone can understand. Even consumers who have never used a digital camera before will be able to get used to the Fujifilm FinePix Z2 in no time. The user instructions are easy to read and give enough information, including illustrations.
