Our verdict

Fujifilm’s FinePix F300 EXR has some impressive features, with the phase-detection AF and 15x zoom lens taking the plaudits.

However, enthusiast photographers will be disappointed by the image quality and the lack of image colour customisation options. For now, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 is the better option.
