I bought this Fuji, my first digital camera, last January (2005) and have since shot nearly 10,000 photos with it or nearly 600/mo. I thought I might enjoy the practicality of digital photography (no film, no processing, etc.) after having used a film SLR for many years prior. I have not been disappointed! I take more photos now than I ever did with my old SLR and would say I've improved my photography techniques as a result. LIKES: * Size + Build + Style: The ultra compact F420 is small ...

Bought this for my wife almost a year ago because of made in japan, metal case, small and cute, and use AAA battery that is readily available. It takes OK picture for 3MP camera but it has serious power problem. The camera was designed to draw little power continuously even it is power off (it's in the manual). I have tried to use new 950mAH AAA batt but still dissapointed. I seldom use this camera and most of the time when I want to use it the batt power has drain and only enough for ...

This was the second Fuji camera I've owned, the first being my first digital camera. My main desires when I first bought a camera were 1) small size so I would be able to keep the camera in my pocket easily, 2) USB direct cable hookup (common now, but not so when I first bought),and 3) non-proprietary batteries. The problem with my first fuji was no physical zoom, which was remedied with this one. I loved this camera. Super easy to use and great photo quality. All of the photos at ...

Blur results could be avoided by : 1. Make sure you hold the camera with both hands and your shoulders tight. 2. Use the Auto mode and allow auto flash 3. Set the ISO to 200 or above 4. Bear in ming this defect og you camera every time you take a picture. Overall I think it is a pitty good DC especially for people with taste and style.

Problems: Hi, I bought my F420 in February, and it was just the size, I was looking for. But probably due to the size, I experience quite a lot that, many of the pictures get shaken/blured. Is this an experience that, other users have ? Best regards Thomas

Was comparing the 4 mp A80 with F420 3mp. Decided to invest in the F420. Important factors (pros): 1) very slim, light and compact, very good shaped. 2) simple to use 3) great large bright lcd and resolution 4) unlimited movie clip (limited to xd card) 5) runs on cheap AAA batteries (alkaline or nickel mh) 6) 4th GL Super CCD processor 7) has 3x optical zoom 8) fast shutter/capture n review/playback (using fuji xd card. not sure if other brands will be just as fast) Cons: 1) solid metal body ...

I did TONS of research on DCs and was basically deciding between the A70/80 or either the F410/F420. I chose the F420 for these reasons, in no particular order: 1) EVERYBODY has an A series, 70 or 80 ... The F420's operation time is very quick. You can easily take pictures in succession, and pictures are taken with only minimal delay. The A70's delay is pretty unbearable, in my opinion. After holding down the shutter button, it always takes at least 2 seconds before the picture is taken. ...

Great point and shoot camera, with great images, easy menus, smooth 30fps videos and compact stylish case. Average start up time, and it seems to have a very slow lag time between shots. It can use AAA batteries as well. Problems: Battery life is average - roughly 100 photos.

I have been to Japan 11/2003 and saw a colleague with a new and very small camera during a Kyoto visit. Since I had problems hiding my Fuji S602Z underthe coat during slight rain, I started thinking about purchasing a smaller camera for such kind of snapshots. I got the F420 for special price already in Japan (32.000 YEN) and so I decided to take a FUJI again. If you purchase this camera, be aware, that the optic is not that powerfull at dark condition. Also the flash is not very good for ...
