FujiFilm F80EXR Lens information

The F80EXR includes a built in lens giving a focal range of 27-270mm giving it a 10.0 x zoom which might not be huge but it will surely be valuable in some circumstances.

At it's widest 27mm, the lens features an aperture of f3.3 and that's kind of sluggish and not the best for low light occasions and you will likely find it hard to get a shallow depth of field. You will probably also have to increase your ISO setting causing noisy photos. With the long end, 270mm is exceptional zoom and comes with f5.6 making it fairly sluggish and you might have to utilize slower shutter speeds.

FujiFilm F80EXR Connectivity

The F80EXR has the following connectivity:

  • USB Yes
  • HDMI Yes

Cameras that come with NFC and Bluetooth compatibility can easily be controlled wirelessly by smartphones. You can easily send files and in some cases alter settings with no need to connect straight with the camera.

Certain apps also allow a Liveview and press the shutter in case you aren't close to the camera. If the camera provides a HDMI port, it could be hooked up to an external monitor. A lot of cameras will allow you to charge the battery with the USB port.

FujiFilm F80EXR Video information

The highest video quality in the FujiFilm F80EXR is 1280 x 720 and you can save in Motion JPEG file format. 720p is low for today's standards.
