Fujifilm FinePix A500

Digital Photography Interface
7 September 2009
  • Conclusion: I've not much to say about the Fujifilm FinePix A500. It's just your average entry-level camera with 5 megapixels and 3x optical zoom. The FinePix A500 has good battery life, is user friendly and good image quality. However, the FinePix A500 has a terrible LCD (With 3 bad points), no continuous shooting, slow performance and is certainly not for low-light shooting. Sadly, I can't recommend this camera to you - it's certainly not worth the money.
  • Pros: Good battery life, Simple; user friendly, Good image quality and low noise at high ISOs
  • Cons: LCD is not great; low resolution, small coverage and bad outdoor viewing, Not for low-light: slow lens, weak flash, no AF-assist beam, No continuous shooting, Slow performance

FujiFilm FinePix A500 Zoom Digital Camera Review

14 September 2008
  • Excerpt: The FinePix A500 point and shoot camera incorporates Fujifilm ‘s innovative Super CCD sensor , direct print, date/time stamp, DPOF support, PictBridge support, NTSC/PAL Video out, resizing an image. Many people are disappointed because on sale it does not include a memory card. The controls on the camera have been designed for simple, one-handed operation and it does have an optical viewfinder (Field Coverage: 75%).

  • Summary: Fujifilm's A-Series cameras are ideal for the first-time digital camera buyer or any photographer who craves simplicity without sacrificing image quality. The 4-MegaPixel and 5-MegaPixel FinePix A500 employ Fujifilm's Super CCD HR image sensor. Users of either camera can enlarge pictures to an 8x10-inch print size without a problem and enjoy the zooming and cropping benefits that these new mid-range resolution cameras provide.

Fuji Finepix A500

8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: A polite way of describing the Fuji Finepix A500 is cheap and cheerful. It is a very simple camera and very easy to use. The problem is its picture quality. This is well down even compared to other cameras in this price range. Long shutter lag times are also a big turn off.
  • Pros: Ease of use, Viewfinder
  • Cons: Picture quality, Shutter lag, Very basic movie mode
