    Strengths:    - Light, but not too small
    - Ease of use

    Weaknesses:    Limited Video :
    - Without audio
    - Resolution only 640 x 320
    - xD card price slightly higher than other similiar media card.

    Bottom Line:   
    Excellent budget camera with 6 m pixel interpolated. It's very easy to use, just point and shoot and you will get perfect professional picture.

    Date Reviewed: July 5, 2003

    Strengths:    Small
    Simple to operate
    Manual ISO adjustments (200, 400, and 800)
    Uses AA batteries - good for travelling.
    Takes good macro pictures.
    Can take four pictures in a row (0.3 s delay between pictures.

    Weaknesses:    No focus assist light.
    Sometimes the pictures can be a little noisy (grainy) but I don't see it as a major problem.
    It takes around 5 s for the flash to charge - meanwhile the LCD screen goes black.

    Bottom Line:   
    I think that the Finepix A310 takes some nice pictures considering the price and that it is a simple point-and-shoot camera. I posted some photos here:
    The camera is pretty quick to operate in terms of start up time, focusing, and shutter lag.
    Ideal for travelling.
