Summary: im brians son,aidan.i bought this camera with my communion money.this is the second camera i ever had.my last sylvania camera broke.i did not break it.i took very good care of it.the fujifilm finepix av100 is great!its easy to use and the pictures are great.i love that it has different picture modes.the only thing i dont like is that the video mode only has a certain amount of time then you have to download it.then you get more video time.the firework mode takes a while...
Summary: Order place 12/29 and received 12/31 Warehouse Surplus ships quickly. The only issue I have so far is that Fujifilm decided to use a proprietary usb cable rather than the older mini usb or new global cell phone standard, micro usb. I bought this model b/c it was the lowest cost/best rated 720P camera with sdhc card memory format. So far so good.
Summary: I own a professional camera, but the finepix from fujifilm give me the neccesary freedom for the not controlled enviroments. It is a really nice option for every day shots at work, at home and in every place at diferent situations. It have a configuration for all your need. An interesting feature is that even when I use flash too often, the battery life is amazing. For me, a very good option!
Summary: This camera shoot decent 720P video @24 fps that NO competitor exist at this price point. And it can zoom when shooting video! One caveat, when zooming the sound are muted temporarily to prevent zoom noise being recorded. And the zoom seems to have 3 discrete stages, not zoom continuously and smoothly like some other cameras. Mine comes with firmware v1.2. When first shooting HD video I got the notorious problem, i.e. video stopped after a couple seconds. I panicked.
Summary: This Camera was exactly what i was looking for!!! couldn't be more happier it's got so many good points about it that i can't even put it into words!!! I'd recommend this product to anyone who was looking to purchase it!!! TOTALLY WORTH THE MONEY!!!!!
