This is a fantastic little camera from fuji.
I have had the camera a few days and feel I can at least update my opinion to hopefully help somebody else.
If you like the feel of a SLR camera then you will like the way this fuji camera sits in your hand. You must try before you buy if you have a choice of say 3 cameras go to your local shop and try them out! I can't stress this enough.
You will need to purchase the following items along side the camera as they do not come as standard and need to be considered if you are on a tight budget.
You will need an ac adaptor to download pictures onto your pc if your batteries fail during download, you will loose information so an adaptor is a must. An average price for a fuji adapter is 30.00
I also recommend that you buy rechargeable batteries as the batteries that come with the camera get used up very fast.If your budget allows I would buy extra memory at least another 32mb, I chose to add another 64mb.
I searched many sites to find this camera and the best price I found was 275.00 on the internet but my local camera shop price matched it for me and gave me a really good deal for my 64mb memory. I also had a brief introduction on how to use my camera. Don't rule out your local dealer they may surprise you.
The menus on the camera are easy to use and the 6x optical zoom is fantastic for a camera in this price range. The macro mode I also find very good.The only point I do feel the camera struggles with is when there is very little contrast between the subject and the background. I have a black cat and I find it very hard to see her on the LCD and even the EVF screen. The whole picture seems dark and I find it can be very hit or miss to get a good picture. This however is my only complaint so far and I do feel that when I gain more experience in this media that I can over come any problems I have.
I would recommend this camera, I feel it offers ve
ry good features for a 2.0 mega pixel camera, and for a few pounds more than the 2600z i would choose this camera everytime.
