The Fujifilm FinePix Z100fd is a surprisingly good point-and-shoot digital camera. It’s stylish enough to appeal to the fashion-conscious, built well enough to survive a few bumps and scrapes, and offers enough features to appeal to both beginners and more experienced photographers alike.
The 5x zoom lens in particular sets the Z100fd apart from the vast majority of affordable compacts, which usually offer a bog-standard 3x zoom. Admittedly the Z100fd’s lens isn’t particularly wide at 36mm, but you’ll really appreciate the longer telephoto range on offer.
Fujifilm have sensibly added an effective mechanical image stabilisation system to ensure that the majority of your pictures will be sharp, and the new Face Detection system works very well too.
