A brilliant entry-level camera for the casual user or budding photographer. This camera has all the setting you need to produce good quality photographs for the family photo album or for the amateur's portfolio! The start-up time is satisfactory and the ease of use and the speed of switching between modes is greatly appreciated - no faffing around with the lens cover in order to switch between modes. With plenty of flash modes, macro mode and the ability to choose between automatic and manual (the latter includes EV and white balance settings), never before has the user is presented with so many options without being confused with all the jargon and intimidating, unfathomable icons - the interface really is self explanatory. The self-timer could do with being programmable, although it gives just enough time to get into a good pose, while not taking so long that the user becomes bored waiting. Movie mode is without sound and results are quite poor. Only twenty seconds can be recorded at a time on the higher resolution. Battery time is good - you can fill a 64MB card in a day and the batteries don't run out. Transferring from camera to PC is also simple - with no special interface needed, the files can be copied and pasted in Windows Explorer (My Computer). This camera is worth every penny spent.
With 2.0 million effective pixels, the FinePix A205 delivers high-resolution images with crisp details and brilliant colors - perfect for making high-quality photo prints. There's no easier way to make sure you're always ready to capture all the fun and excitement in beautiful digital images.
The FinePix A205 sports a high-performance Fujinon 3X optical zoom lens (equivalent to 36-108mm on a 35mm camera), making it easy to frame your subject perfectly. A smooth digital zoom function offers up to 2.5X additional magnification.
Your camera comes complete with batteries and a 16MB xD-Picture Card, so you can start taking pictures right away. Then just press the shutter button - and welcome to the world of digital photography. The FinePix A205 automatically controls focus, exposure, and white balance to give you great photos, first time and every time.
Thanks to its power-saving design, the FinePix A205 lets you take up to 300 shots on a single pair of AA batteries.
All menus can be displayed in any of six languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese, or Japanese. The easy-to-use LCD menus make it a breeze to change settings to your own personal preferences.
The FinePix A205 is designed around the ultra-compact xD-Picture Card. This versatile memory card standard offers a number of advantages, including effortless PC data transfer with any compatible USB card reader or PC/CompactFlash card adapter.
The PictureCradle, available separately, provides a simple and stylish way to automatically upload image files to your PC while simultaneously recharging the camera battery.
