      Disadvantages

      On the whole though it is well made, easy to use, and good value for money.

      Was using a fuji for about 3 years and then it was time for an upgrade. I felt the optical zoom was something I needed and went for the ultra zoom model. I decided that the 760 was a good compromise between price and features.

      The battery life is good. Extra batteries are cheap on e-bay. As was a 256mb xd card. The menu's seemed complicated at the start, but I've had it now for 6 months and I can use it quickly and effectively now.

      The zoom is fantastic but you need a steady hand or a tripod when zoomed right in. But otherwise the zoom comes in really handy and I am always using it.

      The pictures are excellent and have a lovely natural look to them. Best pictures are taken outside, but the results are still pretty good inside.

        Well, following several happy years with my C-990 I felt it was time for an upgrade. I always felt the optical zoom was somewhat lacking on the 990 so I thought the ultra zoom model would be a good bet. I had my eye on the 770 model, but following discussions with those ever-friendly people at Jessops, decided that the 760 was a good compromise between price and features.

        I have been looking at other makes of digital cameras since I bought my last one, and the biggest complaint seems to be battery life, a problem I never had with the 990, having often taken over 100 pictures on a set of Ni-mh’s using both the screen and the flash. The 760 uses a lithium cell, which promises great things although, spares are rather expensive at £30. It’s still early days as I’ve only had the new toy for a couple of weeks but it does seem to last a decent length of time.

        So far, the only criticisms I can throw at the 760 is the slightly more complicated menus compared to my old camera, and it seems to have trouble focusing on things a long way away in poor light, and also when using the macro modes. I’m sure there is something in one of the menus though!

        On the whole though, it seems to be well made, easy-ish to use, and fulfil all of the requirements that I set out to achieve. I think, given time, and maybe a couple of hours with the instruction manual, we are going to get along just fine.
