Fujifilm FinePix A210 3 Megapixels and Smaller
Submitted by NorCal a Beginner
Date Reviewed: January 16, 2004
Strengths: Takes sharp pictures. Lets you choose how many pictures you would like to hold, I believe something like from 12 frames all the way to 112, I think that's pretty neat. Has "Rule of Thirds" frame option (LCD option). It's durable, I've dropped it a few times pretty badly and no scratches or anything of the sort are visible!
Weaknesses: Eats batteries verrrrryy fast, I highly recommend rechargeable batteries, get them with the camera, because you will nead them! (Time to get nitpicky here!! :)Lens protector needs a little getting use to, because sometimes it doesn't close all the way and it won't let the lens come out, that gets a little annoying. Oh yes, I almost forgot, one things that annoys me too is that it doesn't have shutter speed!!!!:(
Pretty good for a beginner photography (like me). Has basic necessaties that every digiphoto camera should have. It's a pretty good deal for 3.2 megapixels at $200.
Price Paid: $200.00

Strengths: Small, easy to use; adequate software available, USB included; uses reasonable amount of AA-size battery power. I love the fact that in Windows 2k and XP, the USB creates a new drive that you can copy from and to. Great price!
Weaknesses: Camera lens cover takes some getting used to. Flash takes a second or two to recharge (rechargeable batteries and spare sets recommended). Display good, but a little too much color saturation.
This camera is pretty simple to use and comes with adequate software to edit the pictures. Excellent picture quality. The built in zoom lens (equivalent to 30-80mm) gives you much more versatility vs standard lens. Camera is USB compatable and can create MJPG movies (but focus does not change while movie is being made). Compact size with built in flash LCD. Best for relatively still shots.
Price Paid: $198.00

Similar Products Used: Used HP camera of same resolution and price. The A210 uses far less power, and display update speed was far better.
