Fujifilm Pinepix Z70

Fujifilm Pinepix Z70

This 12Mp camera has a 5x optical zoom, although with a rather disappointing 36-180mm lens – a wide angle lens is more useful than a long telephoto, especially when there’s no optical image stabilisation. Handling is good – you just slide down the lens cover and the Z70 is good to go. There’s also a dedicated movie button - you can shoot HD movies at 1280 x 720 resolution. A Facebook/YouTube upload function is also included, and the CIPA battery rating is 165 frames. Images were a tad soft, but with this camera, you do get rather a lot for your dosh.
