One of the 3 key pieces in the EXR system is this 15x optical Fujinon zoom lens. With a f/3.5  maximum aperture, it handles low light situations very well. Since this is such a large zoom lens, Fujifilm has also included sensor-shift image stabilization to help reduce the blur and camera shake from your handheld images. When the camera is turned off, the lens retracts into the camera and is covered automatically for protection. Combining this lens with the Dual Core EXR processor and Backside Illuminated 16-Megapixel CMOS sensor complete the EXR system. 

Focus Range:
Normal
  • Wide : Approx. 45cm / 1.4 ft. to infinity
  • Telephoto : Approx. 2.5 m / 8.2 ft. to infinity

  • Wide: Approx. 5 cm - 3.0 m / 1.9 in. - 9.8 ft.

This small pop-up flash unit hides conveniently in the top of the camera and only comes out when you need it. It is not very powerful, only sporting a range of approx. 11ft. at ISO auto (W). This is one of Fuji's Super Intelligent flash units, giving you correct lighting of your subject while still showing a natural, more realistic background.

Framing and viewing you images is accomplished with this easy to see, 460,000 dot, 3.0-inch TFT-LCD screen that shows approx. 100% of the image that will be captured.

On top of the camera you have the pop-up flash on the far left (closed) and the GPS sensor directly above the lens where a flash show would normally be. To the right of the GPS sensor is the power button and shutter release with the zoom control coupled around it. On the far right is the mode dial that sits on an angle that is easily view-able from the top or back of the camera.

Controls on Back: At the top is the mode dial with settings for EXR auto, standard auto, Advanced modes, Scene Modes, Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Program. Under that are the playback and video recording buttons. Next is the 4-way controller and menu buttons. These buttons also act as shortcuts to the exposure compensation, flash, macro and self-timer options. Around the 4-way controller is a dial that allows you to quickly and easily make your menu selections. At the bottom of the camera are the DISP. button and "F" button. These allow you to change the amount of information that is shown on the LCD screen or bring up another menu with commonly used settings.

On the right side of the camera are the two I/O ports. On top is the combination USB 2.0/Audio Video out port. With this you can transfer back and forth with a computer or view your images on a standard TV. Under that is the HDMI output for viewing your images and HD movies on an HDTV.

All of the images that you capture with the F600EXR are stored on a SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card. While there is a very small internal memory, it will only hold a handful of images. Fuji recommends using at least a class 4 card for capturing HD videos and using the camera's High Speed Burst functions. Shown here is a PNY Pro Class 10, 8GB SDHC memory card that we used for this camera review.





fuji_f600exr_battery.JPG
Powering the F600EXR is the small but powerful NP-50 battery. At 3.6V and 1000mAh, this rechargeable Li-Ion battery is capable of capturing up to 300 frames (auto mode) on a single charge. Also shown here is the included portable battery quick charger.
