What You Need To Know
The FinePix Z800EXR digital camera is a little thicker than other pocket sized point-and-shoot cameras.
The design features a lens cover that slides down and has a nice solid feel.
The camera powers on in about 3 seconds and the Z briefly lights up in the front.
The most obvious design feature is the 3.5" touch screen, which means there are hardly any buttons on it.
The touch screen is extremely responsive and accurate.
The interface instantly rotates with the camera, which most point and shoots don't do very well.
The extra screen real estate is nice for reviewing your pictures, swiping through photos and diving through menus.
The Z800 has interesting features like face and pet recognition, which we tested with mixed results.
We're going to give it the benefit of the doubt and say yes, this feature works.
The Z800 also has a 360 degree panorama mode, which on other cameras you have to visually stitch together one by one.
With this FinePix camera, you can press the shutter and spin around for the panorama picture, which we really liked.
The camera can simultaneously auto focus and snap a picture, and we discovered that our pictures were mostly in focus.
The photo quality was not bad: low light pictures were grainy and washed out and we still had some focus issues.
The flash made photos evenly exposed but still grainy.
Outdoor pictures were better and in some cases, sunny photos were a little over exposed but not enough to make the issue a deal breaker.
We had good results after taking the time to understand the four different automatic shooting modes.
