Fujifilm FinePix A600 Zoom review
I bought 3 of these for my kids for Christmas and I must say I'm amazed by the quality of the images and the portable size and the fact that it runs on AA batteries(make sure you use Nimh). I a pro and I carry a Canon SD 700is in my pocket for fun and aside from a few bells and whistles on the Canon, there is very little if no difference in image quality between the Canon and the Fuji. In my opinion there isn't a better bargain in a 6mp digital camera today plus you can't beat the beautiful colored Fuji jpeg's right out of the Camera. They're a steal at their current price.
Slight shutter lag, but if you pre-focus picture taking is instantaneous.
