This is my first 'proper' digital camera, and I'm not disappointed. My first choice after reading a review in a computer magazine, I spent days trawling the internet looking at digital cameras, reading as many reviews as possible, Which? reports etc, but still came back to the Fuji A170. Superb build quality, nicely weighted in a metal case (no cheap plastic here). The lens is stunning for the price, software download easy peasy, printed images faultless. I chose the blue version, most attractive it is too. The only niggle is the full user guide is only contained on the enclosed cd and runs to 102 pages, you only get very basic instructions on printed matter. All in all a remarkably good buy, especially at Amazon's price.
