Fujifilm FinePix F401 Zoom review

I bought this camera in Hong Kong at price US$380 with 16MB and 64MB free, (great price ?).
Handling:
Ultra Compact size with 3X optical zoom is the main selling point of this camera. Yes, it did it ! The boot up time is very fast which less than 2 secs. Quite easy to use !
Body
Metallic boby gives a high class look and the design of the on/off switch with 3 blue LEDs are very funny ( cyber style) !
Performance
White balance is good in indoor environment ! 120 sec voice movie works great. ISO control works also great even the 800 and 1600 can only use in 1280 X 960. Photo quality is good at day time. Battery life is long can last for a day ( over 150 shots )
Software
Not use cause I have the SM card reader
Overall
For snap shot, it is a good choice ! I can take it anywhere, anytime....... really ultra compact size that u never believe ! hahahahaa.......Highly recommand to all snap shot users

Problems:

Viewfinder is not useful due to the accuracy is not match, poor night focus and unforunately no MF..... ! 128MB SM card is a must if you always get the 4.0 mega pixel shots, appox. 2MB each shot ! No bag included in the package is also a concern !
As a webcam, there is no cradle to support which is a great problem, of cos u can buy one but charge around US$45, but it made the camera stand horizontally....... that's my question.....!?
