Newer reviews can be expected to be ongoing projects, with minor additions or corrections.

Note: When I rate stuff, a 10/10 does not indicate perfect in an absolute academic sense, but as in (at least) as good as could be expected at the time, minor flaws allowed. For portable devices typically limited by the size and weight. Value for money also counts. An electronic device that got a high score in 2005, most likely would seem like pure trash ten years later….


 

  • FujiFilm F60fd, Review

    Sorry this is text only.

    FujiFilm_F60fd

    This review is relative to the review of the closely related F50fd

    Excellent light-sensitive camera, but rather slow. (Should be called F51fd)
    This camera is almost identical to F50fd. See review on this.
    It is primarily a firmware upgrade. Probably (?) with quite the same optics, CCD and IS

    Only (real) differences
    + Improved AF (Fixed!)
    + Optional 6Mpixel with less hard compression
    + Slightly bigger screen
    ? Possibly a little better WB
    ? Possibly better zoom motor
    – Poorer ergonomics, due to larger screen

Newer posting are in English (well sort of, bare with me, non-native…), some over five years old just a blunt copy of the texts in Danish.

Layout – and perhaps more translations (hopefully) will be improved later.

 

Collecting of old stuff started May 2015. Entries are generally attempted dated with original stamps, even if they are somewhat updated since, several reviews have been ongoing ‘projects’.
