More on the Fujifilm F505

I have had the F505 for a couple of weeks now. Here are some pros and cons:


1) Panorama setting is really really cool.
2) The camera can capture 3 continuous shots in one shutter click for HDR shots. The shots are set to under exposure, normal exposure, and over exposure. The amount can be set at 1/3, 2/3, or 1 stop. Way cool.
3) Macro function and the closeup ability of this camera is outstanding.


1) Mode button is easily moved by accident
2) Buttons are tiny
3) Barrel distortion on full zoom
4) Slow image storage - you have to wait on the camera after 2 shots
5) Oversaturated colors - particularly the reds
6) Overall image quality
7) High ISO images are quite soft

There are still functions I have not used. I am still finding new ways to use this camera. In spite of the flaws, it is well worth the $150 paid.
