Fuji FinePix A500 Reviews

Fuji FinePix A500 Reviews CNET has reviewed the Fujifilm FinePix A500 and write: “Casual photographers on a tight budget will appreciate Fujifilm’s no-nonsense FinePix A500, a compact 5-megapixel snap-shooter. Unfortunately, the camera’s low price comes at a cost: a limited 3X zoom range, no manual controls, just four scene modes, and a tiny 1.8-inch LCD. It has no burst capabilities at all beyond a 320×240-pixel, 10-frame-per-second Silent Movie mode. Image quality is only average, and perks such as batteries and a decent memory card will cost you extra, but you can tuck this little camera in your pocket for less than US$200. If you’re really strapped for cash, the almost identically featured 4-megapixel FinePix A400 goes for about US$50 less.”

Steves Digicams has reviewed the Fujifilm FinePix A500 and write: “the Fujifilm FinePix A500 was a mixed bag. It produced good quality indoor and outdoor images, but its versatility is limited by its relatively weak flash and poor autofocus performance in dim lighting. But at a street price in the US$150 range, cost-conscious consumers might overlook its shortcomings and consider it a good value, especially considering its 5-megapixel resolution. Those for whom price is the greatest consideration should also look at the Fujifilm A400; with the identical features except for its 4-megapixel imager, it is available for about US$30 less.”

PC Mag has added a Fuji FinePix A500 review where they write: “Looking for a digital point-and-shoot that is both affordable and easy to use? Fuji has one for your consideration. The Fuji FinePix A500 (US$179 list) is a 5.1-megapixel compact digital camera that features a 3X optical zoom. The lens has a 6.4mm-to-19.2mm zoom range (equivalent to a 35mm lens with a 38mm-114mm zoom) and corresponding maximum f-stops of f/3.3 to f/5.5. It comes with 12MB of internal memory and includes Fuji’s patented Super CCD sensor (but I have to say that I’ve never noticed that this special sensor does anything out of the ordinary). On my tests, the A500 took very good stills and delivered solid performance for low-cost camera.”
