FinePix Z90 Pros:
It looks sleek and classy, scoring very high on style quotient. Users who look for fashionable, trendy models are bound to lap it up.

While FinePix Z90 might work wonders for outdoor shots results have been found wanting when it comes to indoor photographs. It is ideal for starters but for those who are seriously into photography; especially users who prefer taking family pictures at home ever so often might not be satisfied with results. Some users might find the need for accessories to view images and videos on TV annoying while others might have a bone to pick about the requisite program to upload pictures on social networking sites like Facebook.
