Sporting a 20x Fujinon optical zoom lens, the F770 EXR is one of the most versatile compact camera's on the market. It has a 35mm equivalent of 25-500mm that the camera can extend to 1000mm with the intelligent digital zoom. It is made up of 14 lenses in 11 groups and thanks to the CMOS sensor-shift stabilization, the lens is able to be used handheld in most situations. This lens works with the camera's 16-Megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor as part of the EXR system. This dual core processor allows the camera to quickly capture, create and store the high quality and special images that the camera captures. It also helps with the camera's incredibly quick TTL contrast AF system.

On top of the camera you will find just a few controls; the power button, shutter release coupled by the zoom control and Fn button. By default the Fn button enters the camera into its GPS/Compass mode, however you can customize it's function in the menu. To the far right you can also see the mode dial, which is on a 45° slant, making is easily accessible from the top or back.
Framing and viewing your images is accomplished with the camera's 3.0-inch, 460,000 dot LCD screen. With 100% coverage of the image area and 11 levels of brightness, you can see exactly what you will be shooting in almost any lighting condition.
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 dedicated 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.

Your images and videos will be saved to a SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card; no card is included with the camera. With the F770 EXR's ability to capture HD videos we recommend that you use at least a class 4 card. The camera is shown here with the PNY Pro Class 10, 8GB SDHC card that was used to perform our tests.
