    Strength:

    Zoom range Macro is amazing Rotating display Price

    Weakness:

    Maybe that there are only three apertures (3,2 / 4,8 / 8) – if you like too see, what all the flashes do you need too make the photo at F8 or guess the right thing, not a real weakness anyway. Haven’t found out too make serial photos and too make the flash go on the second shutter. Might be not possible…

    There''s a real hell of products out there and it really took me a while, to find this one to be the perfect fit for my needs. It’s got a nearly unbeaten zoom – range, a great macro ability (nearest 1 cm!!) and a display, that can be rotated. Only the Nikon Coolpix gets near this camera, but at about twice the price. I got the camera and the IBM Microdrive with 1GB (saved me about 250$ as a bundle), that makes more than 1100 pictures in a row, before needing to get to a Computer, so if you’re willing to carry some bags of batteries with you, a vacation of some weeks will perfectly fit on it; The camera has some more nice features, that is too save the pictures of one day in an folder, named the date. And scrolling thru the images is lightning fast, because of index-pictures created automatically. There are many program-modes too fit most of the needs, several metering-modes, and of course, if you like too set up the camera manually, you can do that as well. This is just the right thing for me, as I use this camera for testing my settings (light and shadows, colours…), but also for non-pro picturetaking and fun. If you like to hold the pictures in your hands, you might blow them up too 13 x 18 cm without trace of digital, go to 18 x 24 cm and if there are fine hairs in focus, you can see it was a digital camera, but only if you look for it. Well, sure the quality isn’t that of a good medium format film, but if you are only about to shoot vacation or family pictures, this is the best you can do for a reasonable price.

    Strength:

    5 star image quality for 2 MP, includes charger and 16MB card, relatively large lcd, light and compact, bargain price

    Weakness:

    no sound recording, no photoediting software, all plastic case feels a little fragile

    After exhaustively comparing reviews and specs, I bought a Fuji Finepix 2600 which i use professionally as I inspect (and photograph) buildings. I really believe this camera delivers amazing image quality for the price, and is light enough to wear in a belt holster all day.

    OK, I don''t even have it yet. I ordered it early this week, and hope to have it for the weekend. I bought it on the specs, and will write a review after I get to use it. I am just hoping to ''seed'' reviews of this model.
