Fuji Hit The Mark Again With The A500 Review with images

AdvantagesEase of use, Great Quality Images at a budget price

DisadvantagesPoor auto focusing in low light.

"...entry level digital camera from Fujifilm was a clear winner for me in my research into a good quality point and shoot stills camera. After owning the Fujifilm A200s (see my reviews) I decided it was time to upgrade as my needs, as well as my skills had advanced. The 2 mega pixels of the A200 was no longer sufficient to print good quality images, was considerably bulky and could no longer really be considered a "compact camera". The A500 was the answer ..."

My second of the same model of camera!

AdvantagesEverything, I love the ease of use of this one!

DisadvantagesNone to me

"...are told that it is Fujifilm Finepix and where the light is at the top of the camera and where the flash goes on and off we are told that this only contains 5.1 megapixels and that it is super ccd (not sure what that means at all!). With cameras people put alot of emphasise on megapixels, the dots that make up the picture. The more pixels the better the picture and nowadays a 12 mega pixel camera is nothing out of the ordinary. For ..." Read review

Fine Pics!

AdvantagesSmall but perfectly formed

DisadvantagesBad PC package

"...shops I plumped for the FUJIFILM FINEPIX A500. It has to be said I bought this mainly due to the price; I got it for £51.99 at Jessops (for my tiny student budget that seemed perfect!) Added to this I bought the accompanying printer which was in an offer, so the camera price seemed much more attractive. Though the camera is small but perfectly formed it took me a while to decide whether I actually liked it or not, lets just say it takes a VERY long ..." Read review

Fujifilm Finepix A500

Advantageslight, with few buttons

Disadvantagessmall monitor and tiny on/off button

"~~General information~~This camera is one I use nearly every day in my classroom. It is a small digital camera which is quick and easy to use and even the children find it easy to take snaps with. It is very durable and considering it has been dropped several times and gets thrown into bags for school trips or assesmblies it has always performed well. The camera takes 2 AA batteries which are easily fitted. I use rechargeable ..." Read review

Just call me Mario, Mario Testino

Advantageseasy to use, excellent pictures, lots of helpful tools, built to last

Disadvantagesno microphone for video clips

"...the chance to buy the Fujifilm FinePix A500 digital camera for £49.99 with the added assurance that if I wasn’t completely satisfied I could return it immediately for a refund I would have been a fool not be rip the customer service advisers hand off, which I actually did. I wasn’t in the market for a new camera and was just browsing but this opportunity just seemed too good to be missed. What is my brief conclusion after using it for some months ..." Read review
