Fujifilm FinePix M603 review

I bought one on ebay (no longer in stores in USA) for my daughters wedding.
As father of the bride, I have unusual opportunities to take movies and stills not covered by the hired pro.
I needed a small still/movie camera good for 45 minutes of VGA movie and 150 stills. Together with a 2GB Sandisk Ultra 2 CF card, I achieved my goals.


I previously owned a F601Z so I am familiar with the Fuji.
I was unhappy with the build quality of the F601z which froze often and was charged a hefty amount for repairs that took over 12 weeks for fpr a freeze up problem common to many earky F601s.
I thought I would never buy another fuji from that bad experience but I did. To date, the M603 has no peer in terms of still/movie ability and pocket size.
