A great travel companion

On your next trip, take the Fujifilm Finepix F770EXR and you'll get the photos you want, minus the backache of hauling along a big camera.

You can use face recognition to snap flattering portraits of your traveling companions, and motion panorama mode to take an easy 360° panorama of Florence.

GPS means you're never lost

The built-in GPS on the F770EXR gives you an array of travel-friendly perks. Landmark Navigator tells you the distance and direction to nearby landmarks and other points of interest. Geo-tagging captures location information about your photos and videos, and you can even record place names in-camera. You can also create a map of your trip when you get home, using your PC and the included software.

Advanced imaging technology produces natural photos

The camera features advanced scene recognition and a 16-megapixel sensor to produce sharp, high-resolution photos and videos you can display on your HDTV a mini HDMI cable (not included). The F770EXR uses a back-illuminated image sensor, which lets in twice as much light as conventional image sensors. Your photos will look more natural with better coloring and minimal digital "noise," even if you're shooting in the evening in the city. High-speed automatic focusing quickly locks on to your subject, and follows it anywhere in the frame. And dual image stabilization greatly reduces the effects of camera shake and subject blur to deliver crisp, clear shots in even the most demanding conditions.

    Mark's Fujifilm F770EXR

    Mark from Metro NYC on 9/13/2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I needed a compact camera with GPS and save Raw files. The 25mm to 500mm lens was a great addition. and the camera being the smallish out the was good too. This would be a Five Star camera if the menus were laid out better and manual was the same.

    Pros: the zoom range  the size  the price  the vast array of functions  the customer support I got here!

    Cons: Battery life while using GPS; I got a second off brand battery somewhere else. The time it takes to learn the menus. The manual is all over the place and does not explain how function interact well at all.

      • EXR Auto: The camera automatically recognizes the scene and selects the ideal shooting mode, plus switches the sensor to the perfect capture mode for the conditions.
      • EXR Priority: You can manually select the capture mode from the following options: Resolution Priority, High ISO and Low Noise, and D-range Priority (set to 800% or 1600%).
    • Program AE: The camera sets the shutter speed and aperture according to shooting conditions.
    • Aperture Priority: You select the aperture to capture the depth of field you desire, and the camera automatically sets the shutter speed according to shooting conditions.
    • Shutter Priority: You select the shutter speed to freeze action or blur subjects to indicate motion, and the camera automatically sets the aperture according to shooting conditions.
    • Manual: You manually set both the shutter speed and aperture for full control over the camera settings.
    • Scene Position: You can select a scene suited to the subject or shooting conditions, and save it for quick recall. Available scenes include Natural Light, Natural + Flash, Portrait, Portrait Enhancer, Dog, Cat, Landscape, Sport, Night, Night (Tripod), Fireworks, Sunset, Snow, Beach, Underwater, Party, Flower, and Text.
    • Advanced: This mode combines point and shoot photography with more advanced techniques. The advanced shooting modes include:
      • Motion Panorama 360: You can take photos that will automatically be joined to form a panorama. You can select several angles to pan the camera, vertical or horizontal panorama shooting, and direction of shooting. Directions to guide you appear on the monitor.
      • Pro Focus Mode: This mode lets you create professional looking effects, such as soft focusing the background for a portrait. The camera takes up to 3 pictures and creates one image with a sharp focused subject and a soft focused background like an SLR.
      • Pro Low Light Mode: For shooting a subject under low lighting or a still subject with a telephoto lens. The camera automatically takes up to 4 pictures and merges them together.
    • Auto: A simple point and shoot mode recommended for first time users of digital cameras.

    ISO Sensitivity: You can manually set the camera's sensitivity to ISO 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 6400, or 12800. The Auto settings will adjust the sensitivity settings according to the shooting conditions. There are 4 automatic settings with a preset maximum sensitivity: Auto 3200, Auto 1600, Auto 800, and Auto 400. The higher the sensitivity setting, the better the camera is at reducing blur in poor lighting conditions, however, high settings can result in more noise in the recorded images.

    Film Simulation: The Film Simulation settings allows you to control the color saturation of the recorded image, simulating the effects of different types of film. The camera gives you the following choices:

    • Provia/Standard: Standard color reproduction--suited to a wide range of subjects, from portraits to landscapes.
    • Velvia/Vivid: A high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited to nature photographs.
    • Astia/Soft: A soft-toned palette of less saturated colors.
    • B&W: takes pictures in black and white for dramatic and artistic images
    • Sepia: takes pictures in sepia to simulate old photographs

    White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. You can select Auto, Direct Sunlight, Shade, "Daylight" fluorescent lamps, "Warm White" fluorescent lamps, "Cool White" fluorescent lamps, Incandescent light, Underwater,  and Custom (set by the camera for the specific lighting for the shot).

    Exposure Compensation: You can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure a total of 13 steps from -2.0 to +2.0 EV in 1/3 EV steps.

    Continuous Shooting: You can capture motion in a series of pictures taken as long as you press and hold the shutter button. There are five options for continuous shooting:

    • Top n: The camera captures photos while the shutter button is pressed. You can choose the frame rate (11, 8, 5, or 3 fps) and maximum number of shots per burst (options depend upon the image size).
    • Best Frame Capture: The camera captures a series of pictures, starting before and ending after the shutter button is pressed. The camera saves 8 or 16 shots, some before the shutter button was pressed, and some after.
    • AE Bracketing: Each time the shutter button is pressed the camera takes three shots; one using the metered value for exposure, the second overexposed by the step selected (1/3, 2/3, or 1 EV), and the third underexposed by the same amount.
    • Film Simulation Bracketing: Each time the shutter button is pressed the camera takes three shots at different film simulation settings: Provia/Standard for the first, Velvia/Vivid for the second, and Astia/Soft for the third.
    • Dynamic Range Bracketing: Each time the shutter button is pressed, the camera takes three shots at different dynamic range settings: 100% for the first, 200% for the second, and 400% for the third.

    Self-timer: The camera gives you the choice of a 10-second or 2-second self timer.

    Auto Focus Modes: You can choose from the following focus modes:

    • Center: The camera focuses on the subject in the center of the frame.
    • Multi: When the shutter button is pressed halfway, the camera detects high-contrast subjects near the center of the frame and selects the focus area automatically.
    • Continuous: When the shutter button is pressed halfway, the camera continuously adjusts focus to reflect changes in the distance to the main subject in the focus frame.
    • Tracking: The focus frame is displayed in the center of the monitor, and once set, will track the moving subject, keeping it in focus.

    Focus Range: The focus ranges according to shooting mode are as follows:

    • Normal:
      • 1.4' to infinity (wide angle)
      • 8.2' to infinity (telephoto)
    • Macro:
      • 1.9" to 9.8' (wide angle)
      • 4.2' to 9.8' (telephoto)

    Super Intelligent Flash: The FinePix F770EXR has a built-in, motorized pop-up/retracting flash with a range of 0.4' to 12.1' (Wide) and 2.9' to 7.8' (Telephoto) with sensitivity set to  Auto. This Super Intelligent Flash system instantly analyzes the scene based on the brightness of the subject, its position in the frame, and its distance from the camera. The flash output and sensitivity are adjusted to make sure the exposure is correct. Red-eye removal minimizes the "red-eye" effect, and is available for each flash mode. You can choose from the following flash modes:

    • Auto: flash fires automatically as required by the shooting conditions
    • Fill Flash: flash will fire whenever a picture is taken
    • Slow Synchro: auto flash combined with slow shutter speeds (tripod recommended)
    • Flash Off: You can close the pop-up flash when flash photography is prohibited, or to capture natural lighting under dim light.

    Intelligent Face Detection: When Face Detection is On, the camera automatically detects human faces anywhere in the frame and sets the focus and exposure for shots that emphasize portrait subjects. This mode will prevent the camera from focusing on the background when taking group portraits or self portraits.

    Light Metering: When Face Detection is off, you can select one of three Metering modes:

    • Multi: light metering where the camera automatically assesses the scene and selects the optimum exposure.
    • Spot: light metering where the exposure is optimized for the center of the image
    • Average: light metering where an average value for the entire image is used.

    Voice Memos: You can add voice memos of up to 30 seconds each to still images. The voice memos are recorded in the WAV format. During playback, you can pause/resume, stop, fast-forward and rewind the voice memos.

    Rating Pictures: As you view your pictures, you can rate them from zero to five stars. These ratings can later be used for image search by their ratings.

    Viewing Images: Images can be played back one-at-a-time or in a variety of multi-frame views. Multi-frame options include a 5-frame cascading display (two previous and two following frames cascaded behind the highlighted image), a side-by-side two-frame display (with smaller thumbnails of the previous and next frames, 9-image grid (3 x 3) and a 100-image grid (10 x 10) of micro-thumbnails. In the 9- and 100-image grid views, the highlighted image is slightly enlarged.

    Photobook Assist: You can create books from your favorite photos. You can select individual photos or all available photos to put into a photobook. You can also use the criteria from the image search categories (date, face, favorites, scene, or type of data) to choose which photos to put into the photobook.

    Playback Zoom/Cropping: You can enlarge a still image in the monitor according to the image quality (size). After you have zoomed in and scrolled the picture to the desired composition, you can create a cropped image of a picture. Copies are saved at Medium, Small, or 640, depending upon the size of the original, and will have an aspect ratio of 4:3. The cropped copy will be saved as a separate file.

    Photo Information: Detailed photo information can be viewed with each frame, if desired. The following information is displayed when Detailed Information is selected: Dynamic range, Image size and quality, sensitivity, shutter speed/aperture, film simulation, flash mode, white balance, exposure compensation, frame number, picture (overexposed areas blink on and off), and histogram.

    Printing Pictures: Using DPOF (Digital Print Order Form), you can designate which images to print, and whether to print them with or without date. Pictures can be printed as followed:

    • Printer or Photo Lab: plug the camera into a Pictbridge-compatible printer, insert the memory card into a compatible printer, or take the memory card to a digital photo lab
    • Transferring to Computer: transfer the images to a computer before printing them

    Power Requirements: The FinePix F770EXR is powered by the NP-50A Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. The battery can be charged with the supplied BC-45W battery charger in about 150 minutes. A fully charged battery is good for approximately 300 frames.

    Auto Power Off Function: When the camera is operated on battery power, the Auto Power Off function will automatically turn off the LCD monitor to reduce the drain on the batteries if no operations are performed for 2 minutes or 5 minutes, as set in the menu.

    Great travel companion

    Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 3/30/2012 1:52:00 PM

    The F770EXR fits nicely between the point-and-shoot and SLR camera categories. For travel, I found it to be a pretty handy self-contained device. First, it's a little heftier than a point-and-shoot, which actually made it easier to hold and shoot with. And the extended zoom worked as promised.

    The automatic features are just what I want when I'm on vacation. Stitching together shots for a panorama view, fast auto-focus, a 20X zoom, facial recognition -- they all help me take better pictures. And the geo-tagging feature is pretty cool, too. I always *say* I'm going to label my pictures, but I never get around to it. At least now I'll know where I took the shots (even if I don't remember who's in them).
