Fujifilm FinePix E900

The E900 employs a Super EBC Fujinon 4x optical zoom lens, it's equivalent to 32-128mm on a 35mm camera. This is an all-glass lens constructed of 6 elements in 5 groups with 3 aspherical elements. The maximum aperture is F2.8 (W) - F5.6 (T) and is adjustable from F2.8 to F8 in 10 steps in 1/3EV increments. When the camera is powered down the lens retracts inside the camera and is covered by an automatic lens protector.

The eyelevel optical real-image zoom viewfinder has a field of view of approx. 77% (this is below the average which is approx. 85% coverage) of the captured image but lacks any type of dioptric adjustment. There is a green LED lamp to the right that indicates camera status.

The manual popup flash has an effective range of 2.0 ft - 13.5 ft (W)/ 2.0 ft - 6.6 ft (T). Flash modes available are: Auto, Red-eye reduction, Forced flash, Suppressed flash, Slow Syncro and Red-eye reduction + Slow Synchro. The flash output power is variable ±1/3 or ±2/3EV in the menu.





On the back is a 2.0-inch color LCD monitor with 115,000 pixels for framing, review and accessing the menus. The coverage is approx. 100% which is much better than the eyelevel viewfinder at only 77%. The LCD gains up (brightens) momentarily during autofocus in dim lighting to aid in framing the subject. The display dims to extend battery life if no button is pressed after a delay interval expires (when the LCD Power Save function is enabled in Setup.)
