Review: Fujifilm FinePix J10

Ok, so first of all, I graduated high school! Woo Hoo! And due to all the gifts (money!) from friends and family, I thought it was time to buy a camera. I’ve never been big on photography, but with the addition of this camera, that is slowly changing.

So first, let’s talk about the actual camera. I bought a Fujifilm FinePix J10. It has 8.2 Megapixels, 3.1X Zoom, a 2.5″ LCD Screen, Image Stabilization, and a Lithium-Ion Battery, all for well under $150. In fact, had I not paid Amazon an enormous amount for shipping so I could receive it before graduation, it would have cost about $110.

What I mainly like about the camera is the size and weight. It weighs about 4oz and, at less than an inch thick and 4 inches across, it fits easily into my hand, pocket, or backpack compartment. Also, as opposed to some cameras, it can use Secure Digital cards. This was especially good for me, since I had already purchased a 2G card for my phone, so now I can simply switch them out until I get a new one. Also, with my new HP Pavilion dv6000, I can simply insert the SD card right into the side instead of hooking up the camera and transferring the pictures.

The camera has worked well for the little time I have had it. It’s very light thanks to the Lithium-Ion battery, so I can take it almost anywhere. My teacher also showed me the macro-mode, which allows you to take very good close-up shots. You can see how I used this on my dog, Marly, who looks completely thrilled, below.

so happy
