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.
Summary: The camera itself is great when it works, but it locks up unless you have put brand new AA batteries in, and a few days later it will refuse to work. The batteries will have been marginally drained, and will be fine for other things, but will no longer work the camera. We bought this model so that.
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.
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.
Pros: Price, feel, looks
Cons: Bad image quality due to trying to cram too many pixels onto too small a sensor .
Summary: Handy little camera took some getting used to, would have liked the instructions to have been written so I could have refered to them easier, also would have liked a case to put the camera in, but al in all not a bad camera
Summary: I bought this as a stop gap whilst I save for a Digital SLR after my Casio Exilm died. This offers 12MP and also HD movies. The quality of the pictures is very good and you have the option of changing the quality of the pixels should you wish to do so, this will also allow you to take more photos if...
Summary: I bought this to go on holiday with as a replacement for a camera that died the day before the flight. Having come back I'm very disappointed with the photos. Photos with any zoom on them have noticable barrel distortion on straight lines.
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.
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 .
Summary: Bought this from another store & returned it for several reasons: Lens very poor, very noticeable barrel distortion of straight lines Colours very harsh especially with indoors flash Noisy focusing mechanism HD video quite jerky & unimpressive Camera has a lightweight & plasticky feel
