Excerpt: I purchased this camera as a gift for my mom through amazon for $59.95 and it came with a 2GB SD Card, so it was a great deal. When my mom finally received the camera we took a lot of pictures to test it out. The quality of the pictures was great, but when we started taking video clips the sound quality was horrible, but the visual component was fine. When we played back our videos we heard a crackling noise.
Excerpt: this is the first camera i have purchased because it was cheapest one available at best buy. yes, it does what it does. takes pictures and have all the functions all cameras have and a good megapixel. the con of this camera is that there is a double flash, so a lot of times you can never get the perfect picture at the right moment.
Summary: I really liked the photo quality of my pictures relative to my friends' more expensive cameras. However, after about 6 months of use, the flash detection sensor would sometimes quit detecting the light ... it would sit there forever trying to detect what it needed to do until I would have to turn it off and turn it back on till the automatic flash started working again.
Summary: Wow, what can you say about a camera that had to be sent in for repairs 1 month after purchase when the lcd screen went kaplooey, and not because of mis-use either. It had only taken about 115 pictures, but they do look good, none of the blurry that I had seen in other reviews. The size and weight were nice and the battery seemed to hold up well for the few pictures we did take. It will be interesting to see how it holds up when we get it back from repair.
Summary: My first fuji film camera. I ordered the black J20- the price is great I got mine new for 105$ w/ free shipping. (I also added a transcend 4GB/class 6 SDHC card & lowepro apex 20AW case.) I really like the styling, "ultra compact" small size, & 2.7" 230K pixel LCD. Wish it had a longer zoom. It's just an easy to use point & shoot that fills my needs for mostly taking family pics.
Summary: I guess for the money (<$150) you can't complain too much. This is the perfect sized camera for travel and ease of use. It takes great simple close up pictures and all the features are basic and clear. Two issues: very poor zoom lens and sometimes the pictures are blurry.
Excerpt: It has a million settings, none of which produce awesome photographs. Most images are grainy and, unless you have a very steady hand, they end up blurry. Some settings take very long to take a picture after you press the button. Using a digital camera is very easy, this one just isn't very good. Haven't had any issues with it.
Excerpt: I previously owned a digital camera. I was looking for a second one to buy so I could take it one trips with me, so did not have to take my wifes camera. I was mainly searching for a camera with a low price. I found the * Fujifilm - FinePix J20 Digital Camera. * I got this camera for less than $99, I thought this was amazing for a 12 megapixel camera. The camera is very easy to use, I was able to figure out all the functions without having to look at the manual.
