Battery Compartment

Fuji have taken an interesting step back from their traditional practice of using their own battery packs (as seen in my 2700 review) and now use just two rechargeable AA batteries, this makes powering the camera and buying extra batteries much easier. However, and it's a big however I'm not convinced by the battery life from just two AA's. The compartment itself is in the based of the handgrip and flips open easily enough.

Batteries and Charger

FujiFilm BC-NH battery charger (130mA) FujiFilm HR-3UF 1.2v 1600mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries

A few disappointments come immediately to mind. First off the charger doesn't have a charge indicator light so you don't know when the batteries are charged, it's not a quick charger so you'll have a long wait to charge those batteries and lastly why couldn't FujiFilm have include a four battery charger and four batteries so you had a change of batteries without having to go out and buy more??

SmartMedia Compartment

The 4700z supports SmartMedia cards up to 64MB, they're inserted and removed through the flip-open compartment on the left side of the camera. This compartment seems to be straight off the 2700 and works in exactly the same manner (I find this door a little flimsy compared to the construction of the rest of the camera).


On the left next to the SmartMedia compartment we have the various I/O connections, top to bottom:

  • USB connection
  • A/V output (video & audio)
  • DC IN 3V
