This camera looks sleek and stylish whilst being small enough to fit in your pocket. It has a decent sized screen though for viewing your photos and videos. It has all the features you might expect from a digital camera such as different photo options and the ability to take short videos.
This camera comes with Finepix photo software which can installed onto your computer - the software is pretty standard though and if you want to do any editing of your photos it probably won't be a lot of help. The camera is pretty easy to use - I think the instructions were on the disk somewhere but I've never had the need to read them. Just select which type of photo you want to take - portrait, landscape, flash etc and shoot away. It really is as easy as that. The photos that i've taken with this camera have been of good quality. I would recommend this camera for all users.
