“I have taken several hundreds shots with this Fuji...”

Written on: 21/08/2002 by Lewis. (1 review written)

I have taken several hundreds shots with this Fuji Finepix 4700 digital camera and have only been disappointed on the night shots. I think the flash is low spec.
Overall the camera is easy to use, I have been pleased with the life of batterys. I use 1600mah.
The bad thing is that it has been repaired twice and written of on the third.
Looking at some other reviews this could be a problem especially the lens cover not opening.
Generally a good if somewhat unreliable unit… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/05/2002 by Mike T. (1 review written)

Rang & was quoted 75.93 GBP for repair to my Fuji Finepix 4700 digital camera. Invoice dated 29/4/02 recd on 30th. Rang and authorised repair using Visa. Told repair within 5 working days.
10th May rang to ask. They claimed only authorised on 8th May!!! Denied it was possible for it to be autorised and not activated earlier. Expect delivery within 5 dyas.
75 GBP is excessive charge. Moral: Handle with care.
Also photomode button too slack and easily moved accidentally. Too easy to forget since… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/04/2002 by PJ. (1 review written)

I like this Fuji Finepix 4700 digital camera but it has proved a poor buy. It has been back to Fuji 3 times since I bought it taking 6 weeks, 2 weeks and 5 weeks+ as it is away being fixed at the moment. The problem is the lens falls out. A friend of mine also has one and his has been back twice with a sticking lens cover… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/03/2002 by Fred Pfost. (1 review written)

I also have the original Fuji FinePix 4700 camera with 1.3 Mpixel CCD. Even it is good as far as it goes with the lower resolution and no zoom. After an extensive questionnaire that Fuji sent out they incorporated most of the requested improvements into the 4700 including the increased resolution and the zoom lens. Now with the new 128 megabyte smart cards the camera is all an amature photographer could ask for. Using Adobe Photoshop and the full resolution (1800 X 2400) I can print… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/03/2002 by Eamonn Fountain. (1 review written)

I bought my Fuji Finepix 4700 digital camera when it was first released, after Tesco's and Kodak managed to lose a roll of film. Having never even heard of a digital camera, I asked a friend who works in the computer industry to help me find a camera which I could use with ease, and could take the quality of print I was used to. After looking at a lot of cameras, the 4700 seemed to fit all my requirements and more. The video camera feature is great for short bursts of footage.
It was once said… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2002 by Nick Sullivan. (1 review written)

I bought my Fuji Finepix 4700 digital camera in November 2000 and have taken hundreds of photos with it in all conditions. I also use a Canon AE1 SLR and a Kodak DC4800 in my business. The image quality of the 4700 is good for a digital camera but not up to SLR quality and the camera has (until now) performed perfectly. Like a previous reviewer the "western" button on the LCD panel has become a little "tired" and, more seriously, the camera has developed a "No card" error message for no… Read Full Review

Mine (a Japanese model) also developed a CF card error, with every card I inserted. I bought it in early 2000, found the problem in 2002. Shame.

Hi,
<br> I got card errors on my finepix 4700 (64MB & 128MB Cards).
<br>I'd been using a USB2 card reader under XP SP2 to download images. Instead of just pulling the card out of the card reader, use the "eject" menu item, then remove the card. It cured all my problems!

I have had my 4700 for 15 months. Really pleased until I received the "NO CARD" error. Tried several cards to no avail. I don't know if it's worth taking to a service center or to just eat the loss. Would like to know what the diagnosis was on your camera. Happened alll of a sudden. Took 4 pics shut the camera off - turned it back on and "NO CARD" happened. Was reaching the 5K pic mark so reset the frame counter too. Tried air blowing it out no luch there either. Appreciate any assistance or what the cost was for repair. Thanks in advance.

Written on: 10/12/2001 by Tony McDevitt. (1 review written)

I was looking for a mid range digital camera in Dec 2000 and noted from reviews and opinions of learned professionals the 4700 was the one for me.
It has lived up to my every expectation - hardly put it down, goes everywhere with me !

Compact & versatile unit, producing superb images every time. Key strengths - Huge LCD viewer & battery life. It will sustain the large LCD display for an eternity - fails to "drain on use" the 2 1600mAH cells as other cameras do.

Written on: 08/11/2001 by Sunny Jim. (1 review written)

The Fuji 4700 is a fantastic little toy. It does exactly what it says on the box, assuming that the box says it takes great pictures, is really easy to carry around with you, and supremely easy to use, from the point and click to the more sophisticated features.
It can be quite battery hungry, so extra batteries are a plus. Extra memory cards too if you are going away for any length of time (the 16mb bundled card really is a bit tight, especially at higher resolutions)
Better still, couple it… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/10/2001 by J Kistruck. (1 review written)

This is my first digital camera, so a rating is a bit arbitrary, but I am totally satisfied with it. The controls are simple and intuitive, the quality is fine, the USB and video interfaces simple. It won't ever replace an SLR for extreme quality shots, and ultimate controlability, but it makes all compact 35mm cameras redundant.

At this price, I'd recommend it to anyone!… Read Full Review

I have used the Fuji MX2700 for the past 2 years and was looking for something with a little better resolution, a zoom, and expanded functionality. I love the MX2700 output in terms of color rendition, and look and feel of the camera. I initially was going to buy the new 6900 but given the price and doing some soul searching, I decided on the 4700. While not as feature rich, I am absolutely pleased with the image quality. I can say the super ccd and image interpolation definitely increases the… Read Full Review

“Bought this camera in August from internetcamerasdirect. ”

Written on: 11/10/2001 by Conrad. (1 review written)

Bought this camera in August from internetcamerasdirect.
My wife has a Contax 167MT and the photo's from the Fuji are as good as any we have seen from there. If you have been waiting for digital cameras to get as good (better?) than 35mm then the 4700 does it. I bought mine with a 128meg card and this allows 75 images at max resolution with no compression. So far I have only used internetcamerasdirect's printing service .... but on 5 x 7 the quality is jaw dropping.
Now this camera is £400 I… Read Full Review

No regrets ... lots of fun, some truly excellent images. Have actually made a decent amount of money by doing formal group shots and having them processed by Photobox. Customers are shocked to get top quality A4 images in just two days from shooting! I am shocked to find the images as good as scanned negs from my Nikon! Camera has just gone back to Fuji under guarantee (10 months old) because the 4-way push button bezel at the rear, so essential to its operation, has become 'tired' ... the… Read Full Review

I have been looking for a good digital for some time, and decided on the Fuji 4700 after looking carefully at cameras feature's.
Also what put me on to the 4700 was the new super cd and its output of 4.3 million pixels from a 2.4 million pixel chip.
I found that it was value for your money and a brilliant little digital camera packed with many features… Read Full Review

I spent ages deciding on which camera to buy.
In the end I opted for the Fuji 4700, as my mate has a 40i and I was impressed with the image quality the SuperCCD gives.
I opted for the 4700 as I wanted a zoom, and I'm really happy with it.
Running on 2 NiMh rechargable batteries lasts ages.
Its packed with good features which all work well and are intuitive to use… Read Full Review

First digital camera. You will want to buy a larger memory card as the 16 MB gets eaten up quite quickly. Very nice picture quality. Comes with a lens cover which, believe it or not, is not standard equipment on most digital cameras. Thumbnail preview is a nice touch. In addition to the viewing LCD, there is a round LCD surrounded by 4 buttons to control zoom, flash etc. Turns green in display mode and orange when in camera mode - slick! Based on the features this camera has I would rate… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/08/2001 by Steve Parry. (1 review written)

Biggest criticism is the Finepix 4700's limited resolution options - the 640x480 mode is too low to be any real use, 1280x960 is pretty good, but if that is all I wanted, I'd have bought a 1.3 megapixel camera. From there you jump straight to 2400x1800 4.3 megapixel mode, which is a little over the top for everyday use, and due to the way SuperCCD works, introduces a slight degradation of quality. My brothers fuji 4900 zoom, using the same SuperCCD, has an option for a mid-resolution of… Read Full Review
