Summary: I decided it was time to treat myself to a new camera and this one was on offer in Tesco. I've had it a couple of years now so at the time I think it was supposed to be £130, I got it for around £60. I'm really not a very good picture taker but this camera really helps you out. It has a lot of features (probably including some I don't know how to use!) but I find it quite straight forward.
Pros: Easy to use, helps turn a rubbish picture taker into an OK photographer!
Summary: The FinePix AX245 is an entry level point and shoot compact digital camera from Fujifilm boasting a 12 megapixel resolution and 4x optical zoom. The camera is available in black, silver and blue and is available for around £50. I got mine (blue one) from Tesco Direct for £60 over a year ago so might be able to find it for less now.
Pros: Cheap, Taskes AA batteries, Uses SD Card, lots of modes
Cons: Slow to take picture, Build quality, Quite cheap
Summary: Out of all the compact cameras I've ever owned, this is by far one of the best. Some of the features it includes are better than some that bridge cameras offer. Out of the box I was pleasantly surprised by the look and feel of it, especially how I had only got it for around £50. There was a large screen on the back that allowed you to clearly see images that I took, and also boosted 12 Mega Pixels.
Its a cheap camera, but a good one and a complete bargain!

Summary: After reading the one review of this camera I felt I had to provide a realistic review of its features! Yeah, it doesn't come with a memory card - however practically no new camera (certainly not low-priced ones) come with a memory card. Annoying - Yes, but hardly the end of the world! Onto the camera. This can be picked up for £50 to £60, and for this price it is an absolute steal!
Pros: Price, AUTO SR mode, large list of features, quality product
Cons: Can be battery hungry. Like other cameras, you need to buy memory cards separately
Summary: controls are easy to use. the LCD screen is a good size and it takes good clear pictures. the zoom seems pretty good as well. I just wanted it for a carry in my handbag as a spur of the moment camera. The settings are easy to navigate and battery life is very good. would definitely recommend as a nifty little camera.
Fujifilm Finepix AX245W: A digital camera with no memory card. I kid you not!
17 February 2011
Summary: I got the Fujifilm Finepix AX425W digital camera for £49.99 from the Tesco catalogue depot, where it had a tenner off the usual RRP of £60. I was after a pocket-sized digital camera to replace the half-loaf-of-bread-sized behemoth of a model that I bought in error the last time, and was attracted by the Finepix's small size, its 12 megapixel resolution capacity, its 4x optical zoom, and to be quite honest, what I thought was the rather snazzy shade of metallic, electric...
Pros: Small size and looks pretty snazzy
Cons: Duff choice for taking actual pictures, though
Summary: If you're looking for a compact camera that is affordable and easy to use, then Fuji's FinePix AX245w will fit the bill. Fujifilm AX245W is a camera with your choice of several colors, camera with 12 megapixels, 4 optical zoom, a digital zoom, USB, Secure Digital, 120, 2.7 LCD. Aimed at those wanting to keep their photography simple; it takes great photos at the press of a button, without any fuss.
Excerpt: "I have one of these and it's OK. Yes it has some clever features, but at the end of the day it's the pictures that count. Being fussy, it has problems with chroma, barrel distortion, sharpness and shadow detail. I also have a 4 year old Nikon compact and it produces arguably better images with only half the megapixels. OK, it cost more at the time, but you can buy similar now for a little more than the Fuji. In particular the abscence of a custom ...
Pros: Price, feel, looks
Cons: Bad image quality due to trying to cram too many pixels onto too small a sensor .
Excerpt: "Fuji Finepix AX245w Reviewed 28.05.2010 Just bought one from a well known supermarket - and very impressed I am. Priced at just under £70 it is extremely good value, featuring stuff that’s only available on camera’s three times the price. Just look at some of the features, • Image stabilization • 12 Megapixels • Fujinon 4x wide zoom • 2.7-inch LCD screen • Automatic Scene Recognition (SR AUTO) • Face Detection with automatic red-eye removal ...
Pros: For the money a great buy, that tries to do almost everthing, and in most cases succeeds .
Cons: Besides the strap, everything else is extra .
Excerpt: ¿Hasta qué punto es importante el tamaño en píxeles de una máquina de fotos?. Importante sí que es pero no tanto como para que nos obsesionemos porque es realmente el objetivo que importa. Y digo esto porque la AX245W de Fujifilm tiene una buena lente y es una cámara de 12 megapíxeles que está dotada de una buena gama de sensibilidad automática. En el caso de esta cámara tanto el numero de megapíxeles como la calidad de la lente están pero que muy bien.
Pros: Tiene buena lente y es de sensibilidad automática
