Real time Video Out

One of the neatest features of the FinePix6900Z is the support for real time video out. If you happen to be equipped with a television, monitor, or VIVO video card it is quite simple to hook up the 6900Z and watch in real time what the camera is seeing. The included video cable need only be connected to the camera (by the USB and AC-adpator port) and then anything seen through the viewfinder is transferred to the TV or monitor for instant viewing.

Novelty and photo shoots aside, this live image feature can have some very useful applications - either in recording short movies around the office, or as a high resolution web cam for videoconferencing.

Screen quality was a bit blocky while in use, but once an image has been snapped the higher resolution picture is previewed as it would normally be seen. The video-out feature is also really useful for previewing groups of photos with a two or three people. The images can be scrutinized on the television in real time, and their fate decided instantly.


While we have a few sticking points with the 6900Z, all in all we were very impressed with its performance and indeed the technology it contains. The SuperCCD sensor was able to capture very high resolution images with no noticeable pixelation, or jaggedness around curved lines. From a users standpoint the operation of the camera was very intuitive and easy to quickly get a handle upon.

Image quality is the most important quality of a camera and the FinePix6900Z proved itself well during our use of it. We didn't just run out and take a few snap shots, but rather put it through the paces of our hectic work schedule. To give you some idea of just how busy we are these days, in the time we tested the 6900Z we probably shot about 500 images on it. During this real-world use of the camera we did notices a few areas where the 6900Z was than ideal, but this mainly centered around its ability to do macro photography - some thing we tend to do a lot of.

Cameras are really products of the people who use them, and it is very difficult to accurately cover every possible use that you, the consumer, may have. Our hope is that we have given you enough of a feel for the FinePix6900Z to judge for yourself if it meets your needs and requirements. If it does indeed, than I would have no problem recommending anyone consider it.
