Great basic camera with little to no grainy images
2 weeks ago
Summary: I bought it to create close-up photos of text on machinery. Just a few minutes of experimenting with the (easy to use) menu, and I had perfect photos, anywhere from 2ft to 3inches from the subject. The zoom is excellent at automatically focusing on a subject at any distance. I also took photos of my property from approximately 100ft distance, and those photos also turned out just great.
Summary: Just about all Fuji cameras have a very poor battery life. I received one for Christmas, but having the gift giver return it to the store. Just isn't worth the expense of buying rechargable batteries and charger.
The camera size works out great , 16megapixel great , but sizing needs sma

Summary: This is the third small camera I have bought. I had an E550 that I dropped in Turkey -- replaced it with AX550 that work great for about a year, it just quit -- bought the AX560 about the same as the AX550 -- took it thru Cambodia, Vietnam worked great except 1 night I forgot to reset it -- couldn't get pictures that night --- next day reset it and worked fine- I use as a backup for places I don't want to take my bigger camera.
Summary: This little camera is simple and intuitive to use. I've taken lots and lots of clear, sharp pictures and quite a few short videos. It's easy to modify the file sizes of the photos/videos to suit a specific purpose (ie. HD videos for home use, vs. lower quality videos to e-mail or post online). I'm amazed at how versatile and effective this very low cost camera has been. I highly recommend it before it gets discontinued and a higher priced model eventually replaces it!
Summary: I am very pleased with this camera. Easy to use. No instructions for the USB cord. I guess the manufacturer expects a person to know what to do with it. Instructions for its use are pretty clear. I like the large viewing window. Pictures sure do come out looking great.
Summary: I love this camera because it gives MUCH better picture quality than my last. -Easy to use -Zoom feature works great for taking the pictures at a distance with clarity -If the picture is out of focus, the camera automatically adjusts so you can take it in clarity.
