Fuji Finepix Z37
Advantages: my fave colour
Disadvantages: blurry grainy photos
I have had the Fuji Finepix Z37 for quite a few years. I had it as a Christmas present because my previous camera started taking grainy and unclear pictures. As it happens this camera is now doing exactly the same thing. I have cleaned the lens and ensured the camera was still when a photo is being taken but the photos are always blurry and grainy. However it hasn't always been like this.
I first wanted the camera because I needed a new one and it was my favorite colour, purple. It is a lovely deep purple colour and I was really pleased when I received it.
The camera is really easy to use which is great as it means you don't spend time fiddling with buttons when you are capturing a moment.
The buttons include two arrows, left and right for browsing through the taken photos. A play button for playing the last taken photo, a bin for any you wish to delete (it will always ask for confirmation before deleting which is great if it was pressed by accident). A zoom in out button is great if you are far away but if you zoom in too far it is really blurry.
To turn the camera on you slide the lens cover on the front. It opens easily and is turned off in the same way. You can take a photo straight away by pressing the button on the top right. Sometimes it doesn't always work as you get used to it. If you press it only half way it doesn't take the photo. After the photo is taken you get to see the photo for a few seconds and then it automatically returns to camera mode.
You can also take videos by pressing the video camera button.
There are different modes for photos like snow, beach, dark, natural but I find it doesn't really make any difference to the photos.
One thing I like about the camera is that you can lock photos so they can't be deleted. I have lost photos on other cameras before so this is reassuring.
The camera comes with a charger that also puts photos onto a computer. This is quick and easy to do but it will download software for the camera. Despite this you don't have to use it, I usually use Windows.
Overall this is a good camera for a little while but it is not that reliable after a few years of use.
Summary: good if you are looking for a simple camera for occasional use
