A Brilliant Camera for the Ameteur Photographer
Fujifilm Finepix S3500
Member Name: Laurenlil
Fujifilm Finepix S3500
Advantages: Smart, adaptable and good picture quality
Disadvantages: Low battery life
I bought this camera a few years ago now when it was first out on the market for around £200.00 and it has prooved itself to be every bit worth the money.
I was looking at getting into photography more and I wanted a camera a little better than those £70.00 ones you can get that give you little more than the basic photograph with minimal mega pixles and zoom facilities.
I found the S3500 and immediatley liked the more traditional square shape, weightyness and duel option of screen or viewfinder. The variety of settings impressed me and they have proven very useful for different enviornments and situations, including portrait or scenery photographs. The zoom is adequate however, for more detailed photographs of animals or birds it would be useful to add a zoom attachment.
The camera takes fantastic pictures of scenery and landscapes in particular, many of which I have used in card making, crafts and to frame. For the low price of the camera the standard of photograph is brilliant. It aslo takes decent photos of specific objects or people however this can depend on the lighting so you need to set the picture well before shooting.
The connectability of the camera to your home PC is as simple as it gets and uploading photos matches that simplicity.
The only downside with this camera is that the battery life is not very extensive and cannot be charged by a PC as it takes 4 AA batteries. Also, when connecting to the computer, the battery life is decreased significantly so it can be a bit pricey with battery purchase if used frequently.
However, overall I completely reccomend this camera to anyone who is starting out in ameatuer photography or equally to anyone who just enjoys taking lovely photographs for memory sake. I am very happy I bought this camera and I still continue to use it regularly.
Summary: A brillant and smart camera for those who appreciate good quality photographs.
