Fujifilm FinePix 2300 review
I actually picked up a FinePix 2200 which is a renumbered 2300 sold via Dixons, PC World and a few other select retailers (renumbered for the benefit of their 'find the same product cheaper anywhere else' promotions) and identical to the 2300 but supplied with a 16Mb card instead of the 8Mb.
This is a great camera for quick snaps, and after I'd fitted it with a 128Mb SmartMedia card it was capable of taking 166 pictures @ 1200x1600. A set of four 2000mAh rechargeables also means that I can take 166 pictures using flash and the screen.
Picture quality is good, but suffers in low light situations where dark areas have a lot of noise. This camera is very reliant on its flash, anything other than a bright overcast day will force it to fall back on its flash.
It's over reliance on the flash is a little disappointing on a camera on which low light images suffer from a high amount of CCD noise. But for quick snaps it's a great little camera, and for £117.49 a complete bargain.
