Excerpt: I received this camera after it was previously owned for about four years. I figures that an old digital camera is better then no digital camera. Its measured about 3in width x 10in length x 7in height, so it is very bulky by today’s standards.
Summary: This camera was my dads first and only digital camera. He bought one when they first came out and had good luck with it until he dropped it just before christmas, He has dementia but still can take good pictures with that camera. I was thrilled that I could still get him a new old camera just like the one he damaged. My only complaint is the discription said it came with a 16 meg xd camera card but that was not in the box.
Great camera for the money for serious photography in a small package

Summary: This was purchased as a replacement for a dropped and broken camera of the same type. The best feature of this camera is the built in viewfinder which follows the telescopic function and lets the camera function like a miniature SLR camera. The view screen is very small but with a good view finder who would want to use any view screen as they all have problems with reflections and ambient light which makes them point and shoot only!
Summary: This camera was a replacement for one that was damaged. It takes very good pics and in its basic mode is an east point and shoot camera. The menu is bulky and somewhat difficult to use. The camera that was damaged worked without flaws. The replacement camera has something wrong with the electronics. Sometimes it comes on and sometimes, all I get is wavy lines. Beware of used, inexpensive cameras. If you get one that works, they're good for a point and shoot model.
Summary: This is an inexpensive digital camera, point-and-shoot, that uses a xD picture card as storage medium. I had lost my original Fuji Fine Pix A340 and wanted a replacement because this camera is lightweight, compact and takes decent pictures. A big plus is the viewfinder that can be used in lieu of the LCD screen which is unusable in bright sunlight, as with most digital point-and-shoot cameras.
Summary: This is the best small camera I have ever owned. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone. I used this camera for years (hundreds of thousands of pictures), until I finally wore it out. I tried a different brand to replace it, but have already sold the replacement camera I bought, which did not even compare to this one. I will stay with FUJI from now on.
Summary: This camera takes awesome closeups of the items I sell. You don't need to spend big bucks or have a billion megapixels to get great images. I highly recommend this or any other Fujifilm camera as long as it has the macro (closeup) feature!
Summary: This is a great camera. I've liked Fuji cameras since I've had one in the film version. The A340 has a clamshell lens cover design that is rugged and great for travel. Fuji shares the XD card storage design with Olympus cameras, so there might be compatibility issues now that everything is going the SD card way. If you can still find this camera in good condition, it is a spectacular value for the money.
