All of the 4900Z's connections are behind a door on the left side of camera, here you'll find the USB connector, video out and DC input.

To charge the battery in-camera you must connect the supplied AC adapter / battery to the DC input connector here (it probably would have been a little more convenient to leave the DC connector exposed).

Tripod Mount

First the good news, it's metal. Now, why positioned where it is? Near to the edge of the body means that on some tripod heads it won't be getting all of the support it deserves, secondly because it's not in line with the lens you may have problems stitching images together when shooting panoramas.

It looks to me as though Fujifilm had a choice here, there's plenty of space in line and directly behind the lens barrel...

Pop-up Flash

The pop-up flash on the 4900Z has a quoted range of Wide: 0.3 m - 4.5 m, Tele: 0.9 m - 4.0 m. Which is pretty powerful for a digital camera. The flash itself is released by pressing a small button on the left edge (you can see it in this photo). The small photocell beside the flash appears to measure flash output at the time of firing.

Flash Hot-shoe

The flash hot-shoe allows you to use external flash units or studio systems. The manual says "Flash units that can be used with this camera must meet the following three conditions: (1) The aperture can be set, (2) External flash synchronization can be used, (3) The ISO sensitivity can be set. I had a fair amount of success using this old Olympus flash unit despite the fact that it couldn't have ISO set, a little experimentation and it worked fine, but only in P mode, in Aperture Priority the camera refused to meter correctly. The camera also worked well with Nikon's excellent SB-28DX.

The 4900Z has a unique external flash white balance feature, to ensure the correct white balance you go into the white balance menu, select manual white balance, aim the camera at a white sheet of paper and press the custom white balance button, the flash will fire and the camera will measure the white balance.
