This is a good, easy to use camera. It is a great camera for the novice, who just wants a point and click camera. It is a 7.3 Mega Pixel camera, so the pictures are very good quality. The Mega Pixel quality can be adjusted depending on whether you require high quality picture or not.
The camera itself used 2 AA batteries. I would suggest getting Duracell Ultra or rechargeable Camera batteries, as normal AA batteries last no time at all.
It has a zoom facility (3 x 8-24mm), which is good when you are focusing on people, but not so good when you are trying to zoom in from a long way.
The camera has the facility to view the pictures after you have taken them, and delete single pictures or all pictures (for when you have downloaded them).
The pictures can very easily be downloaded onto a computer, via the cable provided. It is worth having a software package to organise your pictures once downloaded.
The FinePix, is a 7.3 Megapixel camera, however if your not a propper photograspher and just want a camera for social and holiday snaps then its best to have it on much lower mega pixels. If you're looking for a solid all-around camera that's good for low light, entire Fuji A range of digital cameras are aimed at anyone who is looking for the most straightforward digital camera you can think of, and this is great if you just want to take a picture. With a low number of features on offer the Finepix A700 is also one of the cheapest seven megapixel cameras you will find on the market. The main problem I found and only reason I would not buy one again was because after a small fall in my bag, the LCD display broke inside, this was due to pressure put on the screen. This couldn't be fixed. I bought the exact one again, thinking it was faulty but 6 months later the same happened,. I didn't however have it in a propper secure case. So I would suggest getting a sold case for it. Overall it was a great camera, cheap and did the job perfectly. Just look after it :D
