Are you looking for the perfect digital camera? Well, the Fujifilm FinePix A500 is a great choice if you have never owned a camera before or if you know little about technology. This is due to the fact that the FinePix A500 is a very easy camera to operate, so it is a great digital camera to learn on. CNET finds that the fact that it is so easy to operate and configure is the main reason that this camera is so appealing. It is also a very affordable camera, with the average price being less than two hundred dollars. However, the main problem that CNET has found with this camera is that there is little that it has to offer you. The quality of the images that it produces are not top of the notch, the performance is slow, and there are no manual controls or burst mode.

The way that Imaging Resource feels about this camera is that it has its advantages and disadvantages. Some of the advantages are that its white auto-balance handles a wide range of light settings, the sharpness of the images that it produces is pretty good, it has a pretty nice metallic design, it has a simple user interface, its exposure accuracy is pretty good, and there is low distortion. Some of the disadvantages are that its general performance is pretty slow, the shutter response is below average, there is not a continuous shooting mode, and the contrast is higher than it should be.
