Jeff examines the 3.3 megapixel, 6x optical zoom digicam from Fuji...
Jeff Keller, our friend at the Digital Camera Resource Page, has now posted a full review of Fuji's FinePix S602 Zoom digital camera. There's a proviso; the model reviewed isn't a final production unit, but according to Fuji camera operation and photo quality are identical to production cameras. Jeff concludes (much abbreviated, see his review for the full story):
"The Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom is one of the most highly anticipated cameras of 2002. [It has] the same, nice 6X zoom as its predecessor, ... all the features any enthusiast could want, ... support [for] add-on lenses and external flash [and] a nice movie mode. Does the new 3rd-generation SuperCCD sensor let the S602 leapfrog the competition in terms of photo quality? Nope. While the S602's photos look great printed and downsized, when you look at the raw images, especially at the 6MP (interpolated) setting, the artifacts, jaggies, and noise will jump right out at you. Does the FinePix S602 get my recommendation? You bet."
