Advantages: Lots of options but easy to use.
Disadvantages: Quite bulky in size.
I bought this digital Fuji camera a couple of years ago just before going on holiday to Florida. At the time i paid about £180 for it that did also include a camera case and 1 meg memory card. Although it was quite expensive at the time i am sure now its an older model it can be found for a lot less. However at the time i was happy with the price for what i have to say is a superbly built camera. Its a really stylish design that fits very comfortably in the hand and just looks good. This camera is not just about looks however if that was the case i would not have bought it. It also takes stunningly good detailed, sharp photos. The camera is very accessible and easy to use even for an entry level novice so even if you just use the basic automatic mode for taking pictures you will still get very good results. Advancing on from that though the camera comes with a whole range of different modes and options you can choose from if you wish to take just a little more time in setting up your shots.
The camera comes with built in stabilization which reduces the affect of picture shake when shooting. You can adjust the photo mode depending on the light or whatever it is you are shooting. Just a few examples of this are that it comes with a night mode for obviously shooting at night. It also as a mode specifically for taking pictures of for example sporting events where your subject or subjects may be moving fast. It as a mode for taking photos of fireworks. It also as the obligatory macro mode for shooting very detailed images up super close. It as a self timer should you want to get into the shot yourself.It also comes with a movie mode although i strongly recommend investing in a bigger memory card if you are going to do a lot of this. In all honesty it has way too many options to go into detail and list all of them but suffice it to say this camera should cover just about all your photography needs.
As far as the specs go it comes with 7 megapixels and a 10x optical zoom and a 2.5 LCD display. The display and menu on the back of the camera is easy to use and the menu is laid out and designed in a very logical fashion so all the cameras many options are no more than a couple of menu clicks away. Connection and set up with your home PC is quick and easy with the included software and USB connection.
The camera does also have the option to be used with a tripod and stand as it as the connection on the bottom of the camera, but obviously these are not included with the camera on purchase.
As you may have gathered from the review i love this camera, it does just about everything you could want except make my breakfast.
Summary: A must have Camera. Thoroughly recommended.
