Fujifilm FinePix Z1 review
Jul 12, 2005

i got this camera for less than 300 bucks. it's an amazing deal. for a ultra-compact, it has great resolution, and amazingly low noise in the 200-400 iso ranges, with 800 still better than 400 in most of the competition. quick start-up, quick shutter release, quick everything. clever design: lens is safely covered when camera is off and the lid won't accidentally slide open when pocketed. full-screen, high-quality NTSC movies. i found the battery to last around 200 pix if the flash is not being used (which i recommend). very solid build, feels like quality all-around.

Problems:

images a hint fuzzy.

problems focusing in low light and thanks to no manual focus, there's nothing that can be done about it.

complete absence of any manual controls except for exposure compensation.
