Summary: the camera takes good pictures but after the warranty expires, problems with the lens not opening started... at first the remedy was to just turn the camera on/off for a few times. right now its totally dead... it won't open at all (after a year & a half since i bought it)..
Summary: I bought two new Finepix A345 , both of them with the same annoying problem !! : the zoom doesn't come out , just stocked in the middle , without making focus , I never dropped in the floor or something like that .
Summary: I have noticed several owners of this camera who have wrote reviews complaining about this camera failing to operate after a few weeks. When holding down the shutter to snap a photo, the camera shuts itself off.
Summary: I bought the Fuji A345 about one year ago. It took good pictures, especially outdoors. Used it on a river tour in Russia during the summer and was especially pleased with the convienence of being able to slip it in my pocket.
