Great little camera,
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fuji FinePix A210 Digital Camera [3MP 3xOptical] (Electronics)
I bought this to replace my finepix 1.3. Initially I wasn't impressed, the camera is smaller but thicker than the 1.3 and has a smaller LCD. However using it rapidly changed my mind. It's much simpler to use than the 1.3, uncluding the use of the manual settings. It doesn't have a delay between pressing the button and the snap being taken, and uses only 2 batteries instead of 4. It is much more economical in its battery use.
The optical zoom is a real dream, and with the middle quality setting can also be enhanced with digital zoom. Even more impressive is the movie feature, which I assumed was just a sales gimmick. Its much more than that - it works great!
I also like the sliding lense cover, and the fact that the camera tells you when you've forgotten to open it.
Like many cameras it comes only with a 16mg card - I upgraded immediately to 128. The wrist strap was also missing when the camera arrived.
