Summary: This was our families first digital camera we bought in 2001. It took reliable pictures every time and the quality was acceptable at the time. We did upgrade to something with a zoom in 2004. If it was cheap enough second hand and I needed something simple but reliable I would make this purchase again.
Summary: We decided this year to get all 11 of the grandchildren a digital camera for Christmas and we got all 11 of them from e-bay, 3 were the Fujifilm 2300's .They are great cameras and easy to use for a first camera.All of the cameras were Fujifilms.. What to get for next year > who knows. Roy & Gloria Huling...
Summary: This is an antiquated digital camera . Not too many megapixels for today's standards but then again it's not how many megapixels the camera has but what it does with them. In that regards this camera (and all Fujifilm cameras for that matter)does an excellent job. Pictures are bright, crisp and colorful. There are a few negative things that affect camera performance. First,as most Fujifilm cameras, it needs high-capacity batteries.
at three years old, it still works... but not as well

Summary: I have enjoyed this camera since my MIL got it for us in 2001. But now it's starting to show it's age, and after countless uses and trip and kids we are finally needing a new one. But I like this one for "beat up" purposes. It still works ok. It captures the dust in the air in pictures and light reflects on it, but if you don't use the flash, all the pics are blurry. Good now inexperienced photographers, and to post online...
Summary: Guys, you can't expect from this camera some super cool things because it is basic 2.1 Mp camera but this is VERY RELIABLE and decent simple camera that has traveled with me ALL ACROSS THE WORLD and never put me down! It takes regular AA batteries and the simple optics provide unexpectedly GOOD pictures. Avoid back lighting and unusual conditions and you will be Ok. I suspect that for the price it it perfect light little camera.
Summary: This is an easy to use camera that you can beat the crap out of. I thought that i had lost my first one and i missed it so much i bought a second... well the first one showed up again and now i loan them both out to my high school kids for website projects. I used this camera in asia and central america and beat the heck out of it knowing i had another at home.
Summary: I've been very pleased with this small and inexpensive digital camera. It's been a good one with which to learn about digital photography. Realiable quality for family photos. Eats batteries at an alarming rate, so get an AC adapter.
Summary: I've owned this camera for 18 months now. Almost immediately, I noticed small, translucent spots on some pictures taken in certain lighting conditions. I looked at the lens under magnification (40x) and saw foreign matter on the inside of the lens. I contacted Fujifilm who told me to send it to them (prepaid of course).
Summary: I bought this about 6 months ago and it has been so useful! I no longer need to pay for developing rolls and rolls of films! I'm the type of photographer who would be glad if 5 photos (out of 36) turned out to be ... presentable. Not that I'm THAT bad a photographer but let's say my standards are high. So you can see why buying this camera has been great. I don't have to hide or throw away hundreds of photos, I just delete them on the spot and take it again.
