I purchased this camera about six months ago where it was on offer for £199 reduced from £249. At the time I liked the look and size of the camera and with 5 mega pixels I was hoping for good quality photos. The camera measures W= 85mm H=65mm D=23mm and the enormous 3 inch screen enables you to show your photos to big groups of friends, and it also has an innovative setting to allow you to see whether people's pictures look better with flash on or flash off. This camera produces a 30 frames per second movie mode and therefore has the same frame rate as a normal television which I have found produces excellent playback when the camera is connected to your television. Within the camera box were the following 16MB xD-Picture Card, Li-ion battery: NP-40, AC power adaptor: AC-5VW, A Hand strap,USB cable for connection to your PC, A/V cable for television playback and the following software...USBdriver,FinePix Viewer software. ImageMixer VCD2 LE for FinePix. The usual stuff to allow you to transfer photos to your PC.
Unfortunately I have not been as impressed with the quality of the pictures taken with this camera, even with the picture quality set to the highest number of pixels and after advice from the local camera shop on settings etc I have still been unable to produce the kind of photo quality that I want. Some pictures particularly faces are grainy once they have been processed, even when processed on a photographic machine found in Boots etc. Overall the camera is very well designed in ease of use and the quality of materials used in its construction are very good but I am a little disappointed with my photographic results! Perhaps I should be looking at a camera with a higher mega pixel.
