"Very Happy, Great Camera for the Price"4.5 starson by tonystartup
Pros: Look, ease of use, large LCD screen, quality of pictures were amazing in any kind of lighting, the FinePix image stuff really works. The price, it's looks and picture quality match the pricier stuff.
Cons: 120v adapter is extra, does shoot great video w/sound but in 640x480 mode a 512meg card last only 71/2 minutes. Also, in Video mode the telephoto does not work.
Summary: Just a comment about Video mode. I just wish the card would hold more minutes, it eats up an immense amount of space. I noticed, once you re-save the file in Windows Movie Maker, the file size is reduced to maybe a fourth of the original with no noticeble decline in quality. Overall, it's a good looking camera, looks real professional, picture quality is outstanding with great detail, the FinePix story of adjusting lighting and making dark areas look bright really seems to work. Compared to $500 or $1,000 dollar cameras, unless your a Pro photographer, this is a no brainer to buy.
