The good: Overall very good photo quality; lots of useful features; very good dynamic range and high-ISO performance in EXR modes; extremely compact for having a 10x zoom, wide-angle lens.
The bad: No HD movie mode; limited aperture settings; menu systems take some getting used to; above average amount of purple fringing in photos; two EXR modes use 5-megapixel resolution.
The bottom line: A compact megazoom with a lot to offer, the Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR is very good for its class, but with a few limitations.
Real Nice Point & Shoot Camera
by TheBLC on May 14, 2011
Pros: Great pics
Cons: A little bit small & needs more things to mess with in the menu

highly flexible with very good pictures if you work it

Pros: Super flexible allows quick capture changes
Cons: Buy two batteries

Summary: Use this along with my Panasonic DMC-FZ28 so I now have quality low light museum, very good standard shooting and as long a distance as one usually needs. I capture pictures with the F70 that were not possible. Looking at the Panasonic Lumix ZS-7 also but not enough benefits over the Fuji for my use. Exelence is illusive in this range of camera.
Best Current compact Superzoom
by fiqqer on May 24, 2010
Pros: Supersharp photos in normal daylight, best in class for indoor photos. Can zoom whilst video recording, with sound.
Cons: The F70 EXR video mode is not HD. You need the 80 EXR for that.
Summary: It is cheaper than the competition, up to £100 cheaper! It combines the best of everything and with the EXR intelligent mode it makes taking snapshots a doddle. It has ...
Summary: It is cheaper than the competition, up to £100 cheaper! It combines the best of everything and with the EXR intelligent mode it makes taking snapshots a doddle. It has enough options for seasoned hobbyist.To get the best photos with this camera you have to know some basics about photography. The default ISO setting is 800 you need to change ths to 100 or 200 to get really sharp daylight photos. Use the SP appropriate setting for indoor photos or use the EXR mode for the camera to choose the best mode for you. This way you wont get blurred/poor image photos. There are simpler to use cameras, but this camera is for people willing to learn or are interested in Photography as a hobby.

Fast, but Poor Picture Quality. Not worth the $$.
by rezman4259 on March 30, 2010
Pros: The film simulation modes, auto red-eye removal, 10x optical zoom. Great shot-to-shot times and low shutter lag
Cons: Grainy, grainy, blurred, dim, and grainy

Summary: I had an old Fujifilm 2MP digital camera that took incredibly crisp and beautifully detailed photos, until my kids broke it :(. I expected that same quality when I bought this, but I was wrong. 90% of indoor pictures turned out extremely grainy, no matter the ISO setting selected, unless the subject was within 2-5 feet of the camera.
I had a chance to take many photos of a couple opening presents in a well-lit room, from about 10 feet away. I tested using Auto with AutoISO 400, using the Indoor Party scene mode, and using the auto EXR mode. The camera chose the 400 ISO for every picture, resulting in identical grainy, noisy, mottled photos no matter the camera setting. A point and shoot should be able to handle this scene on auto and return decent pictures. I got clearer pictures setting the ISO down to 200, however the resulting images were quite dark despite the well-lit room and still a bit noisy. Telling my wife she'd have to use manual settings all the time would not go over well at all.
The Sports scene mode was useless at my son's game. Granted it was a cloudy day, but pictures were dull, colors were off and not at all vibrant, and still grainy. The auto focus could not keep up with the action, despite highlighting my kid before snapping the shots. He's fast, but c'mon. Auto mode did no better.
It's hard to believe Fujifilm would release this camera. They have done and can do better than this. Shipping it back today.
Attracted by the zoom, but bad quality pictures.
by Paul1815 on March 15, 2010
Pros: Zoom, price
Cons: Picture quality - all shots were very grainy. Those with or without the flash, and throughout the zoom length.
Summary: Plan on returning this today and going back to the Canon. We'll give up some of the zoom for a picture qualtiy that at least looks good on the ...

Excellent camera in a small package
by albertafp on January 25, 2010
Pros: Slim and compact. Lots of options for shooting. Bright view screen. Very intelligent software always seems to select the correct mode for the best picture in AUTO settings.
Cons: No viewfinder (I'm old fashioned). No stereo sound for video mode.
Summary: Used to have a Canon Sx3is. After 1.5 years the zoom stopped working. Loved the zoom range but found camera a little large so didn't always have the ...
Summary: Used to have a Canon Sx3is. After 1.5 years the zoom stopped working. Loved the zoom range but found camera a little large so didn't always have the camera with us when we wanted it. I spent many years as a professional photographer so was a little hesitant to purchase such a small camera. Have now owned camera for several months, and am very pleasantly surprised at both image quality and sophistication of software. Very rarely have to manually change change things (and even then mostly because I want to not because I have to). Solid construction and easy to use controls. And since the size is so small we generally have it with us all the time. Not quite pocket size but certainly very close. Would definitely buy this camera again if needed.
decent so far, pictures ok...

Summary: have had this camera for about 2 weeks. Pictures in sunlight were great and zoom is great. Pictures from NYE at night were not so great. Flash in bad location and pictures without flash were grainy and blurry. Menu is confusing.
good, but is it over advertised
by jjngundam123 on November 15, 2009
Pros: it is a very nice small camera. Great to the touch, and easy to carry around. the screen is very beautiful and color is bright and works in bright sunlight.
Cons: the flash really is in the worst possible place on the camera. my fingers have blocked it on many shots. Very non-user friendly. I have read the manual but still has way too many features for a basic point to shoot user. too many modes to show from.
Summary: On a bottom line, it is a somewhat great camera. I do mean this because 1) the flash is in the wrong place, block by my finger on many shots. ...
Summary: On a bottom line, it is a somewhat great camera. I do mean this because 1) the flash is in the wrong place, block by my finger on many shots. 2) pictures were blurry but probably i wasn't using the right mode. 3) controls are very complicated, not to a point where one can't use it. but it is way too complex for a point and shoot camera. 4) you need a tripod just to get very steady clear pictures. 5) very bad video quality, i do mean pixelated video. 5) very bad pictures regarding night pictures. you def need a tripod, but still not very good pictures.After a month, i have decided to sell the camera. The camera is not worth keeping. No matter how i try i can't get clear pictures. The night scene is useless, and u can't even take any nice pictures in the dark. Exposure is non existence and the image stabilizer is so good, it's not even their. i don't recommend anyone buying this camera. Go for the f200EXR instead. But right now i am going back to Casio and getting the ex-h15 that just came out.
i just brought the camera to a park. and took pictures of fall and leafs just to test my camera. On the camera the pictures seem to look crisp, but when it downloaded onto the computer,some of it was blurry. The test video was very low quality. the best pictures was the ones where i use a tripod. not very good motion detection. i had a casio Z50 before and the exr it is still a step up. overall if your looking for a simple point and shoot camera. this is not for you as it many options to choose from. you would need accesories to get this the best out of this camera. and that is only on the pictures not video.

- Manufacturer: Fujifilm
- Part number: 15973721
- Description: The FinePix F70EXR gives three critical improvements on current models. First, image quality - the one drawback with long zoom cameras is that the sensor has to be necessarily small, with less light reaching the CCD than would be the case with standard compacts. Fujifilm has introduced its award-winning EXR technology into the FinePix F70EXR, giving a significant improvement in image quality against other models. The second major benefit of the FinePix F70EXR is the neat compact design. Lastly, Fujinon 10x zoom lens, developed in conjunction with the super CCD EXR sensor, produces crisp high resolution results throughout the focal range, from 27mm wide-angle to 270mm telephoto.
