Fujifilm FinePix Z1

5 megapixels | 2.5 screen | 36 – 108 mm (3×)

I picked up this little camera(in black) Jan/06. It's not intended to be my primary camera but to be carried around for those surprise/candid shots. I wanted a pocketable digital for mainly emailing pics and to view on my PC, so after pouring over many reviews re ultra compacts I chose the Z1. It has met my requirements nicely (small size & design ie.non-protruding lens) and I'm generally pleased with the camera's performance. There are many user reviews of this little camera and the ...

I received my Z1 recently and I recommmend it as a pocket camera. It is small and fits nicely into most pockets. The picture quality is very good for what it is. I've owned an s7000 for 2 years. I did not have any expectations that the Z1 could compare in image quality. However, for an easy to use and quick, carry anywhere camera, the Z1 is great!

i got this camera for less than 300 bucks. it's an amazing deal. for a ultra-compact, it has great resolution, and amazingly low noise in the 200-400 iso ranges, with 800 still better than 400 in most of the competition. quick start-up, quick shutter release, quick everything. clever design: lens is safely covered when camera is off and the lid won't accidentally slide open when pocketed. full-screen, high-quality NTSC movies. i found the battery to last around 200 pix if the flash is not ...
