Excerpt: i got this camera a couple weeks before christmas 2005. i bought it because i had a fujifilm finepix 2650 for three years and i never had any problems with it..that is until i dropped it when the lens was out and broke it.
Summary: I don't know if this is an issue with all A345's or just mine, but this camera has a serious focus problem. More than half of the pictures that I take are out of focus. This includes macro pictures. It seems that the closer the subject is, the more out of focus the image is likely to be. I take a lot of close up pictures for my Ebay listings and this was supposed to be a workhorse replacement for my A205 2 megapixel camera.
Summary: We use this camera for pictures of house inspections. As such, this camera takes 1500+ pics a month. It is a solidly dependable camera. We just replaced one that we had used for more than a year at 1500+ per month so we are very happy with the durability as well as the quality of the pics it can take. We were so pleased with it that we purchased two more off the internet so we had ones as spares in case of any other problem or loss.
Fujifilm A345 4.1 Megapixel Point and shhot camera
3 April 2010
Summary: I bought it to replace my Fuji Finepix 2300. Gads! I again find that the newer model is better. It is faster, smaller and more economical to use. I also do not have to be a human zoom, as the camera has a digital zoom. It uses a card instead of smart media, two less batteries, and twice the pixels.
