I received this, my first digital camera, for Christmas 2000. Growing up with 35mm SLRs, at first I was a bit skeptical - until I took a few impromptu snaps in and around the house on Christmas Day and was blown away! The colors in particular were excellent - vibrant and saturated without looking unnatural (blues and greens are beautiful). You could really tell the people who designed this camera knew how *photos* were supposed to look. It was quite a shock to see just how good it looked ...

I have just bought it today as a birthday gift for my 4 year old daughter with a great price (HK480)! I love its light weight and using AA battery and also SM card since I am using Olympus 3030. Problems: White balance is not so accurate, not camera bag bundled, no zoom (digital nor optical), no preview.

First of all, when evaluating this camera one must take into account the price/value ratio, and in my opinion this one performs very good in those terms. The camera is rather small and practical to drag around as it can fit into a shirt pocket. However, it's plasticky feeling calls for some protective case as I doubt that it would withstand any serious bumping. Pictures are of good quality (again for a camera in the low price segment) and movie mode comes in handy for capturing flicks of ...

This is an excellant camera for a beginner or a novice photographer! It's easy to use and VERY easy to see the pictures! All you have to do is plug it in! It is very light weight, versitile and my first digital camera. I suggest it to anyone who is interested in just starting with digital photography. Problems: Some problems I had was that it has no zoom and that even if the battery is SLIGHTLY low, the images turn out kind of crappy but otherwise, nothing big. Also, the lighting almost ...

My first "real" digital camera, purchased in Nov. 2001. Have used extensively in many conditions. Works best outdoors in moderate to strong light, but will take fair indoor shots with some experimentation with flash/lighting combinations. Some lag between shots. Poor to moderate on battery consumption. Overall it has exceeded my expectations handily, and is a tremendous value for the price. I recently have upgraded to a high resolution camera, but would buy this camera again without a ...

Fantastic little camera! I have a Ricoh RDC-6000 and I must say that even though the Fuji is more than half the prive of the Ricoh, it takes better pics. Resolution is not so high, but I did not buy it for hi-res pics. It handles low light situations much better than the Ricoh. I bought it because it's much more study and solid than my other cameras, and I am comfortable when taking it along trips. My other cameras I use to take Macro's and they are packed in special cases. This is a lovely ...

I bought the A101 to dip my toe into digital photography, and have found it extremely easy to use, packed full of fun features, but with one MAJOR gripe (See below). Problems: The main problem I've encountered has been strange white circles appearing on indoor images taken with the flash in rooms with large reflective surfaces (e.g. big mirror, big white wall, window). I have read around a few forums to see if there is a solution, and it seems like quite a common problem, with 2 theroies as ...

I've searched a longtime for finding a camera around € 300. It's the only 2 Megapixel I found in this pricecategory and the pictures are really good. The flash indeed doesn't reach far but when the person/object is within 4 metres there isn't a problem. Unlike the HP photosmart 612 I compared the photos with, you don't see pixels on diagonal objects in the background (like a branch of a tree) and that's nice. It is a light and small camera, ideal for beginners. The digital zoom however is ...

A very fun digicam for a starter or someone who juz want a FEEL of digital photography. Basic functions are there, easy to operate and light to carry along. To make full use of it I'd suggest adding a higher MB memory card so you can dump your auto camera and take more high-res's with this one. Being a user of SLR cams I feel sometimes it's easier to use the viewfinder than looking at the LCD screen...but its up to you. Also, glad that there's this SLOW SYNC FLASH function...already sets it ...
