Summary: My older Vivicam had quit working so I needed a replacement. The Fujifilm camera has worked very well for my purposes. It is easy to use and takes very good quality pictures. It is lightweight and small. Screen size nice. Batteries don't last as long as I would like but is acceptable.
Summary: The A170 I that got from my dad, who bought it several years ago (2009?), does not indicate anywhere that it is a "Finepix" but it looks exactly the same as the photo of the camera here (including specs below lens). I just returned from a trip to Arizona, where I used this camera for the first time.
Summary: great for first time user--not so good for adults--lacks the capability that other digital cameras have--uses batteries instead of recharger which can be advantage with children, but not adults

Summary: Solid Camera. Awesome that it runs off 2 AAs. Decent camera for the price. Don't expect insane options since this is a fairly cheap (in terms of price) camera. I also traveled to Harbin, China, where the temps were around -25 C or -15 F in the daytime, and the camera would not function or open after...
Summary: This was my first camera. If you want to learn about basic digital cameras or you just take pictures of your vacations, I would recommend this Finepix. This is a good start camera. It's affordable, cheap & does what it's worth.
Summary: I bought this because it rated well on the web. I really like it because it is very easy to use, has a nice sized LCD view screen, and takes decent pictures. It's only fault is the picture is about a 3.2 Meg file. I was expecting bigger.
Summary: I purchased this camera Thanksgiving of 2009. I shot around 400 pictures with it. Slowly but surely the zoom lens stopped working. I went to a lot of trouble to ship it to FujiFilm. They found a few specks of sand in it and said that voided the warranty.
