GOOD: A photographer's camera - full control of shutter, aperture and focus if you want it, plus loads of auto modes. Great big lens; I've taken some cracking pictures. Flip-up flash means you can GUARANTEE it's not going to go off unexpectedly. Still prefer my 35mm SLR, but this comes close and is so much more convenient / cheap to run.
BAD: Autofocus is slow (about 250ms), so I almost always pre-focus it. Inter-shot delay slower than newer models (always try this in the shop - some are... (read more)

Wow, the Fuji Finepix 4900 zoom is a lovely digital camera, amazingly nice design, lovely layout of all buttons, weighted nice.
So many options available for taking pictures, but if you just want to snap away in auto mode, its very capable.
I just can't find any faults that would warrant not buying it.
I'm just an average joe picture taker, but i have played with all the settings in all lights. Also i'm an IT guy and heavily into technology, get this camera now. (read more)

The Fuji Finepix 4900 zoom is an awesome little digital camera. I take this thing everywhere. The software it comes bundled with works great with WIN2K Pro. It's "easy as pie" to download pictures. Just plug in the USB cable, turn on the camera and the software and the computer does the rest. When you are done, disable the drivers via the tray icon and unplug the camera. A Sony 32Mb smart card is almost a must when dealing with greater rez pix. They also really need to bundle an extra... (read more)

The Fuji 4900 digital camera is truly good value. A very good cross between SLR and digital. Pictures are extremely sharp and the camera is easy to use for great results. If anyone knows how to get aroung the 'lag' between what you see when you focus and what you actually get when you trip shutter, please advise me at email@example.com (read more)

I have upgraded to this fuji finepix 4900 zoom digital camera from my Fujifilm 1400Z which I thought at the time was stunning (indeed it was up to A4 but image quality of the 1400Z deteriorated at A3 size).
The 4900Z image quality goes far beyond printing at A3 size - detail on my Epson Photo A3 printer is fabulous. Colours are subtle and the overal effect is truly magnificent.
I highly recommend this camera to anybody! (read more)

I have owned a Fuji 4900z for a year now and it goes nearly everywhere with me. The plus point about being like a 35mm camera can also be seen as a short fall - it doesn't fit in my shirt pocket - but the quality of the image it produces makes up for that. (read more)

I have been a professional photographer until recently and thought that I should now go digital. The FinePix 4900 has great reviews so I went for that one. It is wonderful to use and see superb quality pix instantly. My only quibble is that it is too small to hold easily. If it was the size of my old Olympus OM-2 it would be perfect!
It does take time to work through the instructions but it is necessary to benefit from the camera's many features.
Marvellous digital camera and... (read more)

I am constantly amazed and surprised at the performance of the Fuji 4900. Every time I use it I seem to discover a new feature. Having used SLR cameras for 25 years, with varying degrees of sucess, the Fuji 4900 is an absolute joy to handle and use and the results are superb every time. This camera should have been produced years ago! I can't see myself ever changing it, it will probably outlast me. (read more)

Having had faithful service from my Nikon SLR for many years, I thought it time to move with the times and I have been very pleasantly surprised. I haven't yet found any conditions under which the camera hasn't excelled and it has far exceeded my expectations. Well done, Fujifilm! (read more)

I wasn't going to add a review having read those already entered, but wanted to add my vote of confidence in this camera. It's easy enough to leave in Auto when you first get the camera, and flexible enough to dabble with the manual side of things when the mood takes you.
More than happy with it. (read more)

If anybody is wondering whether this camera is capable of taking infrared pictures. The answer is YES. I tried it with a 88A infrared filter, and the result is excellent. Email me if you want more information or to see some samples.

Having used Fujifilm's MX700 for the past three years , I was ready for an upgrade to keep up with fast changing technology. The Fuji Finepix 4900 zoom seems to be the ideal choice for a digital camera. Setting up the camera is simplicity itself following Fuji's informative and well laid out manual.
The superb 6 x optical zoom lens gives great results and is a big plus over many of it's rivals. The controls have been well thought out and positioned making the camera a joy to use. Whether it... (read more)

I am not deeply into photography so therefore require my camera to be simple & easy to use. The 4900 fits the bill.
The camera is a joy to handle and, if you so desire, virtually use it one handed due to its design and lack of weight.
Set it to 'auto' and away you go, no problem.
I particularly like the movie facility which enables you to take movies (no sound) for up to 180 seconds depending on your smart card capacity.
One serious drawback for me was that there is no facility provided for... (read more)
