FujiFilm FinePix A205 Zoom (FinePix A205s)

Announced Jul 29, 2003 •
2 megapixels | 1.5 screen | 36 – 108 mm (3×)

Ive had this camera almost 4 years. I love to mess around with the EV and WB. It realy makes the pictures come out fantastic. This is a great beginners camera, worth every penny. Its small and not heavy at all, just a little wide. Problems: I got some dirt in around the lens zoom area and so now sometimes it says I have a zoom error. I find it very annoying because it usually happens right when I have the perfect photo op. (Just my luck)

I bought this camera over a year ago and I love it. Very easy to use for a first time "digital camera" buyer. I have had no problems with it and the quality of the pictures are awesome. I would recommend it to anyone. My 9 year old niece can take pictures with it and enjoys it.

Bought this camera about 4 months ago, and it goes everywhere with me, like a visual diary. I take hundreds of images a month with it. It's not pretty, but it's not so tiny you can't hold it still, like so many fashion statements posing as cameras. I bought it to try out digital photography, having used top name film cameras for decades. The battery life is amazing, particularly if you have the flash option set to off - the flash doesn't have to charge up each time you start the camera. The ...

As a novice i found the camera very easy to use and would tell anybody new to digital photography to buy it. Problems: not yet.

I recently purchased one of these for my ex-wife as a 'just takes pictures' camera, assuming that $100 would yield an extremely mediocre device, but adequate for snapshots of better quality than she would get from a disposable film camera. How wrong I was. In all honesty, this is a perfectly usable little camera. I only played around with it for an hour or so and can't comment on battery life or longevity, but I'm used to an EOS 10D so I'm a bit picky and I'm familiar with the field. My ...

After having gone off Fuji for some time now and being disappointed in the colour rendition of many other cameras, I thought I'd give this one a try. At only £99.90 from Jessop's its an amazing bargain. Ok so the body is plastic but it seems of a very thick gauge so should stand a few knocks without disintegrating. The resolution although only 2 megapixels is more than enough for general shots, I've had worse from some 3 megapixel cameras (Ricoh). Excellent for online auction close-ups, the ...

This is a great Camera for the first time user. It also has every KEY feature that I require for my business - Separate buttons for Flash and Macro modes (no awkward menu searching), and LCD screen for image preview, and a USB connection with a no fuss install and drive letter access to the images on the camera. PERFECT ! One note - invest in rechargeable batteries and a charger. The camera does a very good job at conserving battery power, but you will eat thru alkaline batteries in a hurry. ...

The construction is chunky, but lightweight, very easy to use, image quality good for a 2MB model. It has all the features you would need as a keen snapper, but naturally, if you want huge prints, you would not go for a unit like this. Takes standard AAs, good life for rechargeable cells. LCD is a little small, but bearable. Downside is having to buy the docking unit separately, but you will not need it. A bit basic, small CCD and too chunky for some tastes, but it has a nice feel ...
