Best digital camera brands Fujifilm digital cameras
Fujifilm has a strong presence in the global digital cameras market, with the Japanese manufacturer having survived the leap from film to digital technology thanks to its good brand reputation.
Whether you’re looking for a slim, cheap model or a more advanced bridge camera with manual features, Fujifilm has a wide range of cameras to choose from.
Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W3
One of the most exciting innovations to come out of the Fujifilm lab in recent years is its 3D camera range. The first model, the W1, has been updated with the Real-3D W3.
The W3 features two CCD image sensors and two lenses. The camera takes two pictures simultaneously, and combines them to form a 3D image.
You can view the 3D effect on the camera's own screen, or on a 3D TV.

Fujifilm EXR sensor cameras
One of Fujifilm's most-touted innovations recently has been its new EXR sensor. This advanced image sensor is built into a selection of Fujifilm's newer models, and it has various functions designed to achieve better photos.
For example, instead of taking a single picture that focuses on either the dark or light areas of a shot, the EXR sensor can take two photos simultaneously. One image focuses on the light areas of the shot, and the other on the dark areas. The two photos are then merged to create a balanced shot.

Best cheap Fujifilm digital cameras
If you’re looking for a bargain digital camera, Fujifilm has a handful of cheap ranges to consider.
Several of Fujifilm's compact point-and-shoot cameras can be found for around the £100 mark.
For instance, the Fujifilm Finepix JX300 is a respectable little model with a 5x zoom. The Fujifilm Finepix Z90 is less than 3cm thick, and offers 14Mp photos and HD video.
One seriously cheap model to consider is the Fujifilm Finepix AV100. Despite costing around £50, it still offers HD video recording and 12Mp still photos.
The best advanced Fujifilm digital cameras
If you want to exercise more manual control over your photos, Fujifilm has a good range of superzoom bridge cameras in its Finepix S-series.
Fujifilm superzoom bridge cameras
Fujifilm makes a range of superzoom bridge cameras, and some of these models manage to undercut rival-brand bridge models on price.
However, the downside can be that a number of Fujifilm's bridge cameras offer limited manual control features - there may be no manual focusing, no RAW shooting, or no hot shoe, for example.
The new star of Fujifilm's bridge line-up is the Finepix HS20, boasting a 30x zoom lens that you control manually, just like you would with a DSLR-lens.
If you’re interested in an even greater degree of manual control over your shots, check our Which? reviews of the best bridge cameras, featuring a number of strong performing models from all the major brands.
Fujifilm Finepix X100
The Fujifilm X100 is a retro-styled compact camera with a unique hybrid viewfinder.
The X100's hybrid viewfinder means that there's a front-mounted switch which switches the viewfinder's function.
It can either work as a window-style optical viewfinder, or, at the flick of a switch, change into an electronic viewfinder display.
The electronic viewfinder functions as a mini replica of the LCD screen, letting you preview picture settings and see the menu system or finished photos.
Electronic viewfinders tend to be found in superzoom bridge cameras, or mirrorless system cameras like the Panasonic micro-four-thirds system.
The X100 is the most compact camera to date to feature an electronic viewfinder.
