    How many mega pixels is the 4900??? I would assume 2400x1800 image would, by a not too dificult calc, come out at 4.3 mega pixels... but there are sites rating it at 2.4??? i don't understand...

    It is a 2.4MP camera. Many places are listing it at 4.3MP, because it basically interpolates through software to make up the necessary pixels to get the larger image.
    <br><br><br>
    <br>Personally I felt misled since I didnt do my homework on this camera when I bought it used on ebay, the seller listed it at 4.3MP, and then I read it was really a 2.4MP.
    <br><br><br>
    <br>Overall though Im quite satisfied since I only use the 2400x1800 res if Im going to print something in 8x10 or larger, which works great, but sucks for screen viewing, too soft.

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

    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 Full Review

    Written on: 20/03/2002 by ratpuke7. (1 review written)

    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 Full Review

    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 marmin35@hotmail.com… Read Full Review

    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 Full Review

    Written on: 11/10/2001 by Grahame M Ross. (1 review written)

    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 excellent… Read Full Review

    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 Full Review

    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 Full Review

    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.

    Written on: 26/04/2001 by GA. (1 review written)

    I work for Fujifilm (not the camera division), so the choice was more down to which model instead of which make. I was lucky as the 4900 is a superb camera. Photography used to be a big hobby of mine when I was at school. The type of photography I do has changed since then. Hence, I wanted a simple to use point and snap camera for the bulk of my 'snaps' but with the capability to allow me to use more advanced settings when I wished. This camera is perfect for that. It's small, much cheaper than… Read Full Review

    Written on: 14/04/2001 by vulturesong. (1 review written)

    This camera is a dream to handle. It fits well in the hand whether composing in landscape or portrait. The provision of zoom control on two surfaces means the user never has to struggle. LCD screen is clear, with the usual brightness adjustment available. Auto focus can be checked with a very useful screen-within-screen feature, magnifying the centre of the shot allowing a close check to be made. Manual focus is also a doddle, with idiot arrows on screen guiding you to optimum sharpness. These… Read Full Review
