Summary: Actually we would like to return it but we don't know how. It doesn't work properly at all. It's slow loading, and it doesn't load on the computer correctly. Some of the features on the camera wont work or I should say we can't get them to work. I'm sure it's our fault because we didn't know much about the camera when we bought it, and it didn't come with a manual either. We bought all the bells and whistles separately so we are out of some money, but lesson learned.
Summary: a camera is easy to handle. simple but very efficient and effective .. i bought this camera because it would be very easy for my daughter 16 years, which is just in the eagerness to learn photography. I am a photographer and I think this camera helps a lot to my daughter.
Summary: I bought the S602 five or six years ago, took about 5,000 photos with it, and then sold it. I wish I had never sold the camera because of all the great memories I had shooting high school sports photography with it. In it's day, it was a great camera. Almost DSLR experience except it's a 3.3mp sensor. Shutter lag was somewhat noticeable - I had to work around it to get great sports photos. Ability in low light was limited.
Summary: What can I say - this is a fantastic camera! I'm not a professional by any means, but I have already found vast improvement in the quality of my photos by using this. It's a real gem from yesteryear. The colors are vibrant, the skin tones are amazing, and shots taken in good light are right sharp. People who love tweaking options can get a nice range of settings for ISO and aperture, but it doesn't throw so much at you that it gets overwhelming.
Summary: Couldnt have asked for a better birthday gift. With only 3.3 megapixels the pictures come out awsome! I have the canon digital rebel with 6 megapixels and you cant tell what pictures came from what camera. My fuji is twwo years old and still works great! Havent had a problem yet. The only bad thing is it drains the life out of your batteries, and fast. Make sure you carry an extra set at all times.
Summary: I've owned this camera for almost 2 years now & I still think it's the best all around camera for new parents. Here's why: 1. The video is AWESOME for a digicam. 640x480 resolution + 30 frames per second = 15 minutes of good quality candid shots on an IBM 1GB Microdrive. (note - nobody wants to watch 15 minutes of video, so the 3 minutes available on many of today's cameras is sufficient) 2.
Summary: Okay okay ... You can get this from several Z-shops sellers, starting at $438 (as of 12-26-03). There are some small errors in the description, which you may clear up for yourself at the Fujifilm.com site. But compare this to the S5000, which you can get new, here, for about $340. And if you hunt diligently, today you can grab it for $296. I am not repeat not talking about some auction sight, either.
Summary: The Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom is a fine camera capable of taking a 15 minute video using a microdrive,just watch what you are saying while shooting because the microphone will pick up your voice before any other sound. Most of the controls are easy to find and use without having to resort to reading the manual. The flash produces very little if any red eye. The almost infinite zoom lens allows you to get close to and frame your subject easily. Macro shots are just as easy.
