Fujifilm FinePix A800 review
Mar 4, 2009

Basically a plastic F40FD which is easier to hold, runs off easier to get batteries for far less cash - same large 1:1.6" CCD, weaker 3X zoom lens (better for CA worse for long end sharpness) -

there`s something funny happening in the A800, despite setting ISO100 very high shutter speeds are seen where an F30 would be a lot lower and there`s very obvious NR, almost as if there`s a safety shift for ISO (bumps it up behind the scenes to stop shake), the result is sometimes excellent and sometimes messy images ..

the long end of the lens is soft and dreamy like previous A series Fujis - like the F40, thankfully runs on SD cards .....

A good buy but doesn`t produce the images you`d expect from this sensor, sometimes they`re worse than the 8Mp 1:2.5" ers !!!
