Don't buy - here's why. The focus-free (non-focussing) nature of this camera makes for very (very!) fuzzy pictures, except under the most ideal conditions. I spent a couple of weekends with a number of digital cameras, and this one came off worst. The image sensor is good quality - low noise - but to compensate for its low sensitivity, Fuji had to use large apertures and long exposures. That means for non-flash, lower light, interior or cloudy day shots, you will shake the camera too much ...

This camera is excellent. It does the job and sometimes even better. I just got this camera 4 days ago and I love it. You can check the picture that I have taken out at: http://digital.keyfrontier.com Problems: There is a couple things that I wish the cameras feature has. Something for night shots, enery saver lcd screen, and a manual zoom within the macro.

I've made up a gallery of images taken with the A201 that can be seen here: http://www.pbase.com/bob_mcbob/ Anyone with any questions can e-mail me at bob@napigator.com Problems: The main problem is low light photography. It is necessary to use the flash indoors unless using a tripod, and low light photos often have quite a lot of noise (check out my examples at the link I mentioned before).

It have been a month since I bought this camera and i´m already reselling it. I liked the outdoors shots, but in matters of low light the pictures are very poor.. Problems: when the light is poor you can´t see anything on the LCD.

Got this camera for my son's 11th birthday. Was a bit sceptical at first as the construction feels a bit too plasticky. However, was very pleasantly surprised by the ease of use of the camera and more importantly, the image quality is excellent for a 2.0 Megapixel camera with a simple (fixed focus?) lens. I would rate this as an excellent entry level digital camera for people who are no experts in photography or electronic gadgets.

PHOTO COUNTER RESETS! Problems: It's honestly unacceptable that each time you insert an empty smart media the camer counter resets to zero!

I bought this camera for my 9 year old daughter. It was the cheapest 2.0 mega pixel camera around and I rated it high because for the price it is a great value. It is extremely simple to use and images almost compare in quality to my expensive 3.0 mega pixel camera when I crank it down to the 2.0 level. It is also extremly light and compact. Windows XP recognized the camera straight away. It even has a 20 second video feature. The ability to zoom in on shots using the LCD after they ...

Excellent digital camera that keeps me happy until 10 MegaPixel cameras arrive on the market. I've been using this camera whilst caving in China and rock climbing. It has survived undamaged. I take most my shots with one hand, whilst holding the rope with the other...so its really easy to use. I have printed daylight shots upto A4 size (albeit using resampling to increase the number of pixels) and people couldn't believe it was from that little cheap digital. I find I can take 80 full res ...

Excellent point and shoot camera... Perfect for my needs... i wanted something that was small, fairly inexpensive and easy to use but still produced excellent quality pictures... this camera produced exactly that. It takes fairly clear macro pictures. The casing is very handsome. My biggest gripe is that the video recorder comes out really dark when taping indoors... outside it's prefectly fine. I also dislike that it has no sound for the videos too. Another thing I dislike is the 16 mb card ...
