Fujifilm FinePix A303 review
One thing I have to stress is to become familiar with the manual white balance settings. I was looking for a small 3mp or 4mp pocket-sized camera for traveling. This one is quite easy to use. I use rechargeable batteries in it and one pair lasted through filling a 64mb memory card with the LED on for each picture, the USB upload of the photos and then 20 more pictures and their upload without a recharge. I've owned a Fuji 1400 for years and used a Sony and an Olympus but prefer Fujis. I love the automatic lens cover on this one! If you want to add lenses and need more manual options and are willing to sacrifice the compact size and ease of use, then go with a larger camera.
It was hard to find a case that took advantage of this cameras small size. Most seemed to protect the camera but added twice the bulk.
