Godrot.'s review of Fuji MX 2900


“This is Fuji's only traditional looking digicam, and...”

Written on: 28/05/2000 by Godrot. (1 review written)

Good Points
Nice design, sharp lenses, easy to use, high resolution

Bad Points
Quite big, lithium ion battery packs are quite expensive to replace or buy a spare

General Comments
This is Fuji's only traditional looking digicam, and is the main competition for the Nikon Coolpix 800 and Olympus' 2020. What has it got over those two cams? Marginally higher resolution, for a start (2.3 megapixel, giving pics at 1800x1200). The design is good, fitting the hand well, although it is nowhere near as compact as the Olympus or as comfortable to use as the Nikon. Indeed, it is quite a bit bigger than both of these cameras, but it delivers superb, sharp images, with natural colours. The compression also seems to be cleaner than on other Fuji models, as there is very little nlooming around high contrast edges.

It could do to be packaged with a 16Mb Smartmedia card rather than an 8Mb. But that really is a minor gripe. The control setup, while not quite as intuitive as the Nikon, is a world easier than the Olympus 2020 and its arcane symbol menu, and really only takes a few minutes to understand enough to really begin playing around with manual settings.

All in all, an excellent camera, but a little more expensive than the competition.
