"First DigiCam - Satisfied with results so far"4.0 starson by ToofaaniReview
Pros: Big viewfinder:i mean lcd, video quality is good, easily placed buttons, good grip, picture quality is fantastic in daylight, in dark lit areas party scene or auto gives good quality,
Cons: no in built red eye reduction, no video zoom, number of scenes less compared to some other models,
Summary: while i have been looking for sometime to get my first digicam, one of my friends reffered me to fuji website, looked over there and looking at F470 I knew this is going to be my cam for the coming time. In the last 15 days I must have taken some 1500 pics from this cam and I am satisfied with the performace. It has got the perfect grip for my hand, neither to slim nor to big. the buttons are placed at right position for me to change the option just using the thumb. the video gives good quality picture, though as it is nornal, night movie is dull. One thing missing is video zoom. In the imaging section I have taken closeups, long shots, scenes, night shots, b&w, total dark room. Pics come good in all of them. Dont think of capturing the entire hall full of people in dim lit area. But in morning works fine. I got 512mb of card, generally i have around 150 pics or so and rest is in video this is on single charge on the battery. If you plan to go for 1gb module, got for extra battery as well. Didnt get much chance to use the provided software for redeye reduction, however would have loved the in built feature of red eye reduction. As any time you go for close up in dim lit area, straight for the face or people looking right in front of the camera you gonna get red eyes. Though I tend to change the angle of camera and take care of that as well. Apart from that if my dad can use it, it means it is easy to use. And I am loving it and carry where ever I am going.
