Fujifilm FinePix T400 Review

Review posted 12/07/2012

Quick Take
Pros
  • 10X optical zoom
  • Slim, compact body
  • High light sensitivity
  • 28mm wide angle view
  • CCD sensor-shift image stabilization
  • Image search by multiple categories
Cons
  • Slow burst mode limited to 3 shots
  • Overall still image quality is unimpressive
  • Images are noisy at high ISO settings
  • Battery life is low
  • Audio doesn't record while zooming in movie mode
  • Video quality is mediocre
  • Flash is weak
  • Can adjust LCD brightness manually only in Program mode
  • Lacks manual shooting modes
  • Face recognition is clunky
Bottom Line
The Fuji FinePix T400 is slim and compact, but the accolades pretty much end there. Despite having a 16MP sensor, overall image quality is middling and digital noise is quite noticeable at high ISO settings. Still, this camera would be a bargain if it didn't suffer from a low-resolution LCD, a lack of burst modes, and an inability to record audio while operating its zoom during video recording. The image search options are enticing, though the searching by face feature failed to work in my testing. Given this camera does not have WiFi, the mark for upload feature - which requires that you use the included software on a Windows PC - just seems like a gimmick. Read more in our Full Conclusion.
The FinePix T400 is a basic point-n-shoot camera that aimed at offering a compact sized camera with some appealing features; for a price that's very easy on the budget.
