Review posted for Fujifilm FinePix E900|

The 9.0 megapixel Fujifilm FinePix E900 is an impressive follow-up to last year's 6.3 megapixel FinePix E550, which was good enough to earn a Dave's Pick.
Its color is very good (if somewhat subdued), resolution excellent, and noise levels at even high ISOs are tamed very well. The FinePix E900 isn't the fastest in terms of AF speed, but it's right there in the respectable department. If you prefocus, it's a great family camera, with its f/2.8 lens handling wide angle indoor scenes very well.
The E900 serves a range from rank beginner to sophisticated photographer making it a great choice for dual- or multiple-user households. I was impressed with the camera's performance in many dimensions, but most impressed with the print quality. For a point & shooter in such a small package to deliver acceptable 13x19 images even at ISO 800 was quite the head-turner. If you're looking for a fast, high-resolution digicam that works well in low light, the E900 is worth a closer look.
