Fujifilm FinePix 4700 Zoom review
Long term user. I got my 4700 way back when they were new. Digital cameras age like computers I suppose. Anyway, I have taken about four thousand photos with it and it still works perfectly. The only sign of it's age is some dust behind the function LCD panel.
Small size. Uses standard size batteries. Decent picture quality. AVI movie function with sound. Fast boot up and button response. Excellent zoom range on picture review lets you check focus and small details.
Some users complain about the batteries. I personally have no problem. I just carry extra rechargeable AA's. It's important to have a good charger though. The AVI quality could be getter. The flash is weak. There is a slight color crossover in skin tones. Shows up as an orange band. (Most people would not notice this, but I have been involved in digital photography for 10 years and have made and plotted LUTS for a variety of equipment, so I look for nonlinearites in color.) Low light focus trouble.
