My brother and I got our mom a 2MP FujiFilm camera for Christmas 2001 (and she loves it), and I was so impressed with the images from her compact camera, I decided to look at the FujiFilm line for my first digital camera. Having average around 8-10 rolls of 35mm on past vacations, I decided to research via Internet (including this site) and get a digital camera before my next trip. I was also getting discouraged with the photo processing at the local big-chain department store (will keep ...

Over the years I've found this to be a solidly built and tough (for plastic) camera. It's been dropped, soaked in rain and generally abused and it's still working. I've been pleased with the abilities of the macro modes and the wide range of focal lengths. Images are reasonably sharp if you keep the camera steady and have plenty light. For what you pay for, it is good value for money. For 6X4 images from a compact or P&S, this would work nicely. Good for holidays or otherwise "risky" trips ...

It's about time I wrote a review about it! I've had the camera for two years now. Actually, this is my second one, as I got the first one stolen after one month! After 40,000 pictures I would say, the weakness is the extending lens mechanism. I presume this may be the case with other prosumer cameras, extending lenses are very fragile. Using a neck strap is STRONGLY discouraged as the camera will bang its lens into objects as you move around. I use a holster instead. If the lens mechanism ...

I just love this camera,though I am still coming to terms with the digital way of shooting. The AE L still confuses me therefore I just ignore it. I mainly shoot A priority or S, on 3M fine, this gives great print outs at 8 x 10. If this camera packed up I would go out and buy a 7000. Problems: My gripes probably apply to all digitals, First I find it difficult to see to change any settings on bright days, secondly I get annoyed at the camera switching itself off so soon and thirdly the no ...

It’s pointless comparing this to a digital SLR. It’s not. I'm an artist who uses a camera on an almost daily basis, and I wanted to try out digital, with out a huge outlay, so after looking at what was on offer I bought this second hand through ebay. I needed a camera that is easy to use with good image quality, aperture and shutter priority and the macro feature really appealed. I thought that this camera would be used alongside my old EOS 35ml SLR, I have been amazed that it has totally ...

Even though the 3 megapixel sensor is a bit outdated it it still WAY good enough unless you are planning on making prints over A3 size. In my opinion the ergonometry of this camera is EXCELLENT. Even though it can be a monster to lug around sometimes it is very easy to get around and if you know the shift commands in a whole day of shooting you will never need to touch a menu. I love the ISO 800-1600 option.. even though its only at the 1M mode, it has saved a few pics for me. Good battery ...

I am only a beginner to digital photography and have only had the experience of taking photo's of my family. and have only ever had a very cheap 35m camera. My husband was given a kodak digital camera for his job. And since then I have had the good fortune to try several others one being a kodak DX6490Z. Now being a very proud grandmother of 5 very goreous grandchildren I was in need of my own digital camera. After a lot of research I purchased a Fuji Finepix S602Z and what a wonderful ...

I am a novice photographer and up until 2 months ago was using a basic Sony Cybershot point and shoot camera (Sony DSC-S30). I bought this camera to tie me over until I delve into a full digital SLR. I spent much time researching and reviewing cameras....I had a few requirements as follows: 1. Full manual control of shutter, aperture and focus. 2. Full auto mode 3. At least 6x zoom 4. Ability to use filters 5. Can use CFII memory (so I can re-use when I buy my Digital SLR) 6. At least 3 Megapixel

The 602 was my first foray into digital (3/03). Since then, I've also added an Oly E20N. The 602 is a really great camera with rich colors and fast performance in good light. The 6mp interpolated files may not look so great viewed at 100% on a computer screen, but they print out fantastic up to 8X10. If you want to print straight from the camera, use 6mp Normal mode. If you want optimal quality use 6mp Fine. You'll just need to do some post sharpening/contrast work before you can print. The ...

Okay, to the previous comment of bad image quality, take a look at my small gallery (at the moment) and decide for yourself... http://www.sarah602.fpic.co.uk I am no professional, and learning about different settings and as such, have now invested in a 300D. Obviously this is a DSLR and cannot be compared to the Fuji as previous poster commented because with DSLR a lot depends on quality of lens used. Of course a DSLR is going to give you better quality, but the 602 is a good choice if you ...
