Fujifilm Finepix T200
Advantages: Easy to use, very good looking and robust.
Disadvantages: None to mention in my opinion.
I have been away from the site for some time but anyone who remembers me will know I am a model and I therefore spend more time in front of the camera than behind one but I do love taking photos at a very amateur level and recently found taking pictures much easier with the purchase of the Fujifilm Finepix T200.
This is a very good looking and very well made camera and it looks and performs like a more expensive camera than what it actually is. I picked mine up online for only £95.99 which seems like great value for money to me.
It comes in a few different colours as most cameras seem to these days but I went for plain old simple black. I think in black with its impressive looking lens and the large rear screen it just looks very professional.
The Fujifilm Finepix T200 is a 14 megapixel camera with tons of features and functions such as face detection, dual image stabilization, YouTube capture mode, Blink Detection technology and Smile Detection technology.
It also offers you the option of setting things like the white balance and the ISO yourself, I am trying to learn a bit about this as my photographer assures me it will help me to capture better shots but I have to admit for now I am mainly in auto mode.
In auto mode or using any of the pre-sets such as Landscape, portrait mode, night mode, etc, etc, I find the image quality to be very sharp and the colours vibrant. The built in anti shake thingy means I have not yet taken a blurry image and I have taken over 300 photos with the camera so far.
I am super happy with my purchase and I am sure anyone using this camera will agree with what I have said. I have used it very successfully indoors and out and even in very dark situations like night clubs and the likes it does a very good job and having various flash settings you can reduce the dreaded red eye in pictures too.
There is a video function on the camera as there are with most these days, it does take decent video footage outdoors in good light but not so indoors in poor light but for what you are paying for the item and the great still images it takes you can hardly hold this against it in my opinion.
Battery power is good with this camera too, it uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery which I find gives you around 250 photos without needing charged, more if you use no flash and don't check them all on the screen.
Overall I would say this is a fantastic little camera that will do a good job for a long time, it seems robust and I have thrown it around in my handbag and dropped it on grass, I have even very clumsily knocked it off a pub table onto a hard floor and it has suffered nothing from any of these incidents. It is easy to use and takes great photos so I would highly recommend it to all.
Summary: Highly recommended little camera.
