Fujifilm F600 EXR Lens information

The F600 EXR offers a built in lens offering a focal range of 24-360mm giving it a 15.0 x zoom which is perfect and will enable you to zoom right in.

At it's widest 24mm, it comes with an aperture of f3.5 and that is rather sluggish and not great for low light situations and you will find it difficult to get a shallow depth of field. You will also need to raise your ISO resulting in noisy photos. Towards the long end, 360mm is superb zoom and comes at f5.3 which is quite slow and you would have to utilize slower shutter speeds.
