OK, now we will move over to ISO 100 and in the DR Extended Range. You can see how image quality and sharpness have improved measurably. Here is a photo of my husband, Bradley. EXIF Data will follow this photo.

The lens on the F-70EXR is capable of capturing fine detail very well. This was taken in the Extended DR Mode at ISO 100.

As you might expect on a small, compact camera, the built-in flash unit on the F-70EXR is rather small. The F-70EXR compensates the flash by raising the ISO setting numerically as the distance from camera to subject increases.

I found that at 15 feet the camera had increased the ISO setting to 1250 and the camera was moving into an under exposure status. None the less, that is more than adequate for family photos and the like and the image quality remained good to fair, due to the increase in the camera's ISO setting, as you can see from the attached photo.

Very nice Sarah. How would you rate this camera so far? Also where did you order the camera from?

Hi there, Netman-

I have had less than half a day with the Fuji F-70EXR, so I have not yet got my feet fully wet, but I am working at it. Overall, the camera is impressive. I keep finding new things as a go through the camera's documentation.

I ordered my F-70EXR from www.amazon.com to take advantage of their 30 day, no questions asked return policy with no re-stocking fee etc. As I really wanted to see the features of the camera in action.

Have a great day.

Thanks. I figured you really didnt have alot of time with the camera but was wondering your initial thoughts. I like the return policy from Amazon so I think i will go with them.

Thanks
