Problems: I bought one for my wife and one for my mom in 2003. Both of them show a color (lines) on the screen and refuse to take pictures.

I bought this camera in 2002. I needed it for well, exactly a point and shoot camera, for occurences when it is uncomfortable, or out of sheer laziness to use my SLR.. as a point and shoot camera it functioned as it should be.. no "ooh"s and "aaaah"s.. but no bad pictures either.. as I said.. it functioned well Problems: In early 2006, I was preparing it for another trip, ... found out that the lcd only showed grey. plain grey. haven't been able to shoot with it ever since...

my boss bought the camera in june of '04 ... have loved it until just a week ago. very handy, great size, the usb cord is great for downloading the files! Problems: the lcd monitor shows green & pink streaks and blobs the actual picture taken is much clearer, but lots of noise and pink streaks under the darker colors. the battery is fully charged and it's been taken care of... my screen hasn't gone blank yet, and i can still take pictures, they just aren't the best quality now. The day after ...

Up until yesterday I was raving about this camera to everyone who would listen to me. However, now, I too have the exact same issue with the breakdown. Details below Problems: Screen has gone black, unable to take pictures or film, but can review pictures. 9/10 times the camera will switch on, 5/10 times the zoom lens will no longer retract back into its hobbit hole. Bought my Cam in 05/2004 - would be interesting to know if Fuji considers this to be a problem or not. I have looked after the ...

Now it's dead. Was a very good camera, for ease of use and image quality. Bought it in march 2003 (399 Euro), used it for more than 3000 shots. Nice look, nice metal body, very good battery life, good speed, very nice colors, image sharp enough for print on A4 sheets, with low noise. Problems: Artifacts when used at max res (4mp). The real problem is that it died, at the end of august, 2005. All the camera works, but it cant capture images; the screen became black, is only possible to play ...

Good but now broken (see problems). I bought this camera new 3 years ago and have liked it very much. It cost a now rather expensive looking £350 and has done everything I could have wanted of a first-time digital camera. True, by todays standards, the LCD screen is small, startup times rather slow and movie quality low. Having said that, rechargable battery life has always been excellent, case is quality metal build, voice memo and composition grid overlay features have been useful and ...

I was a big proponent if this nifty little camera - so much so that I ended up buying 5 of them over a 1 yr timeframe as presents for others, in addition to one for my personal use. The first sign of trouble was when I was showing one of my friends how to use it and it suddenly died - I thought the battery just died but I replaced it with my personal one and it still didnt work - so I brought it back to the store and they were dumbfounded and sent it back to Fuji for repairs under warranty ...

It was 2 times broken with the same probelm! I bought the camera on 3-1-2003, i liked it. Its small, good resolution, easy navigation. The batery is ok, last longer lasting, can take hours to take picture, more when I dont use any flash. But it would be great if only this camera have an option for regular AAA alkaline baterry to make it easier when you have to go out for a long time. The zoom is ok, the movie is nice, when I use the 128SD I can take hundreads picture and a long movie without ...

This is my second digital camera, first was half MP Jenoptik only used for posting images to eBay! This Fuji is excellent and vastly superior (bought for £199 from Dixons Online). Quick to charge up, retains charge well enough to last a couple of days worth taking/editing pictures. Download to finepix viewer is a doddle, easy to manage album. I am delighted with sharp images, and cropping on the camera is very simple. Easy to operate all controls, good bright LCD viewer. I am a very happy ...

Though being the first digital camera and owing it for the last 6 months I think that this brief review may be of some help PROS Construction: 1) Great looking case, with futuristic blue lights effects. 2) The 1.5" LCD display is sharp and really well positioned Features: 1) The supplied Cradle is very useful both for charging and in trasfering data from camera to pc via USB eliminating the possibility of messing with cables unlike other cameras. 2) Its 5-Flash modes are really interesting. ...
