Digital Photography Review's verdict on the 3.3 megapixel, 6x optical zoom digicam with its third-gen SuperCCD...
Phil Askey over at the Digital Photography Review website has now posted a full review of the Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom digital camera, concluding:
"The S602 Zoom is a good example of a well thought out and implemented digital camera, it provides a zoom range in combination with nice ergonomics, a strong case and flexible set of manual controls. [While] it does deliver excellent video capture ability (one of the SuperCCD III features) it comes up short one the one item we were all hoping for, improved image quality. To my eye the only slight improvement there is a reduction in flat area noise. For a whole lot more including an array of sample images, check out the full review - then get a second opinion from our own production-level Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom review. Still want more? A third opinion can be found in the Steve's Digicams first-look, and a fourth in the DCRP's pre-production review.
If you shoot mostly for the web, email or printing below 8 x 10" then the S602Z is still a very good camera (as you'll see from the web reduced images in our gallery - next page). The trouble Fujifilm have now is that the four and five megapixel competition have leapfrogged them as far as image resolution is concerned."
