>> Josh Goldman: Hi I'm Josh Goldman CNET review Senior editor and this is a look at the Fujifilm FinePix Z33Wp. The Z33WP is a waterproof camera only down to 10 feet for up to 2 hours consecutively. So it's not designed for serious diving photography but more of a beach, pool camera. Like the rest of Fuji films Z series cameras this one is small and stylish. It's available in black, hot pink or this glowing green version. IT has a10 megapixel resolution with a 3X zoom lens sealed up behind glass and on back is a 2.7 inch LCD. To make room for that screen but keep the body small all of the controls are in 2 columns so if you're used to a more typical camera control layout will take some time to adjust to. All in all it's pretty easy to navigate though and you even get a button here at the bottom to go straight to recording VGA quality video. Unfortunately the photos and performance from this camera are not the best thought so consider this camera only if you need the waterproofing and you're on a budget cause it sells less than $150. Camera best suited for life as a secondary camera specifically for shooting in the rain and snow or at the beach and pool. I'm Josh Goldman [ Background music ]
>> and that's the Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP.
Fuji's FinePix Z10fd might be the cutest sub-$200 snapshooter out there, but you can get better image quality from some other similarly priced cameras.
The Fujifilm FinePix S5200 is a well-designed, well-built camera with very good performance. It's a bit large, however, and artifacts in its photos may turn off some shooters.
Fujifilm's FinePix F60fd is a nice full-featured compact camera, if you can overlook its slow shooting speed.
The Fujifilm FinePix XP20 is a decent extra point-and-shoot for when you need a camera to take some abuse. But if it's going to be your one and only pocket camera, look elsewhere.
The nicely designed Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD has more going on than just its long lens, but photo quality isn't quite there.
A low-cost way to get an 18x wide-angle lens, the Fujifilm FinePix S2550HD delivers merely OK photos and shooting performance.
Fujifilm's FinePix HS10 has the look, feel, and controls of a dSLR, with the photos and shooting performance of a common point-and-shoot.
Don't let its new sensor technology scare you off: the Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR is an excellent compact camera with shooting features for just about every type of user.
If you have the bucks and you want the best photo quality possible, the Fujifilm FinePix X100 delivers. But definitely try before you buy to make sure the focusing systems won't make you crazy.
Fujifilm's new flagship A-series camera has a modest set of features but produces decent-quality photos.
Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP (Black) Review
The good: Nice design; decent features for the money; waterproof to 10 feet.
The bad: Soft, grainy photos; slow performance.
The bottom line: A simple, inexpensive waterproof camera to keep poolside, the Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP is nonetheless lacking in photo quality and performance.
