definately not. Although I don't own one of these,though I can understand your problem. I'll explain it as simply as possible, and add that it applies to all owners of digital cameras with preview screens.
<br>
<br>When you take a picture, it gets reduced to fit on a preview screen. If you imagine an image say taken at 1'000 pixels then on the screen you will have 1000 on a screen about 1 1/2 inches. If you were to take it at 2'000 pixels then youd get 2'000 pixels squeezed into the same area. In order to fit onto the screen, each pixel will be smaller, thus making the on screen image clearer. However on a photo editing screen, this is not the case. The software will usually view the image at either 1x its actual pixel size, ot half of it, instead of say a tenth of the size which a preview screen displays. As a result, on many preview screens, a blurred or soft edged photo will appear as a rock steady image, but appear as it really is on your computer monitor. This therefore may simply be because you are either not holding the camera steady when taking a photograph, or not focusing by using the optical zoom. If you can, set the camera to fixed focus, to see if that improves things. Otherwise, when taking a photo, use the preview screen to focus it before taking your shot. To do this, all you do is look at the preview screen before taking a shot. To focus it, use the zoom in out controll for the optical zoom until the preview screen becomes clear not slightly blurred, and then half press and hold the shutter to lock the settings in the cameras memory, and then fully press the shutter to take the shot. Hold the camera as steady as possible. If this corrects the problem, great. If not, then a 1600 x 1200 pixel image into editing software, and set the view to 1x for image size. then go to print preview and check to ensure fit to page is selected. If the picture prints out clear, then good, its your monitor or windows settings at fault. If its blurred its either your photo technique or a faulty camera. Yes it's a Fuji, but it still may be faulty.
<br>
<br>To check your monitor settings, right click on the desktop and select properties. Then click the settings tab. You should be set to 1024 x 768 for a 17 inch monitor, and 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 on a 15 inch, and 640 x 480 or 800x 600 on a 14 inch.
<br>
<br>Having said that I just resized my monitor to 640 x 480 to virw a photo at 1600 x 1200 pixels,. and it wasn't blurred at that resolution , though I thought it might be. Another thing to remember is that a any image will look sharper on the preview screen than on a monitor. It could be that your monitor is very old and badly producing images.
<br>
<br>If you e-mail me a copy of one photo to callan_stevens@hotmail.com but remembering that it must be l;ess than 1'000 kb in size for hotmail to accept it, then I'll look at it and get back to you. If you want to send more please do, but none of people please, just places or objects. For eah photo sens a seperate mail.

Now I may be nitpicking, since I can only list one bad point, but to me it was a major disappointment to find that the PC-CAM feature on my Fuji Finepix 2600 was next to useless, unless you sat outside on a sunny day - especially since the manual shows a bright image
There is no ability to get the software to compensate either, which I think is very poor. I have tried several PC-CAM software suites to no satisfaction - still a very dark image. Also the video record is nice, but only 20… Read Full Review

If you have listed the image quality in the "good" section, then why have you scored it as only 3/10?

Graham, my review was rating the camera in general and only 1 of 3 image related items were exceptional. the Web Cam image is extremely poor and the Video clip is about as good as an 8mm movie.
<br>
<br>Fuji's literature on the webcam function does not reflect what you can actually achieve in a room lit with 2x60 watt bulbs, since the image is unusable in normal room liting - I could not use it at all.
<br>
<br>The viseo clip is only just usable
<br>
<br>Both these ratings brought down the overall rating.
<br>
<br>In the text I did qualify the reason for such a low rating - if all you want is a still camera GREAT, but if you want the features advertised by FUJI - look at another model
<br>
<br>Since I rated the Camera I have made great use of it on vacation. One really good point, it is a very robust camera and survived a 4ft drop onto a rock and submersion in a stream (I feel very lucky).
<br>
<br>As a still camera I still feel it is exceptional for the price $400Canadian. But it ain't no webcam !
