Fujifilm F660EXR Lens info

The F660EXR provides an inbuilt lens and a focal range of 24-360mm making it a 15.0 x zoom which is outstanding and is going to allow you to zoom all the way in.

At the widest 24mm, the lens comes with an aperture of f3.5 which is fairly slow and not the best for low light circumstances and you will likely find it difficult to get a shallow depth of field. You might also need to raise the ISO resulting in noisy photographs. For the tele end, 360mm is incredible zoom and comes to f5.3 which is quite slow and you would need to set slow shutter speeds.

Fujifilm F660EXR Connectivity

The F660EXR has the following connectivity:

  • USB Yes
  • HDMI Yes
  • GPS Yes

Fujifilm F660EXR Video info

The max video quality in the Fujifilm F660EXR is 1920 x 1080 and you can capture in MPEG-4 and H.264 format. 1080p quality offers a decent balance between quality vs file sizes but 1080p is not going to give you any room to crop. The camera does not have a microphone or headphone jack so you get no control over the audio. It is perhaps a better idea to shop for a different model in case you require better audio for your video clips.
