    Written on: 24/06/2003 by Donald. (1 review written)

    I have had this camera for some 18 months now and remain hugely impressed with its overall performance which knocks the spots off some of the current models. Easy to use (one handed if necessary) the results remain excellent. The built-in flash is handy in 'contrast' situations. I have no gripes at all - a great piece of kit… Read Full Review

    Written on: 19/02/2003 by Gazz. (1 review written)

    Perserverance with this camera certainly pays off and the reward is superb photos using fuji's interpolation software to bump up the mega pixel rating. Camera is light, stylish, portable, reliable and is extremely easy to use. I have had the camera for 9 months and am still producing better and better pictures. I personally have a lot of problems with focusing and often get blurry pictures however i have discovered this is often the case when the flash is not being used. Using more artificial… Read Full Review

    Written on: 03/11/2002 by Lowrie. (1 review written)

    I bought this camera to go on holiday with. I wanted something that would be easy to use and also I would be able to review my efforts on a TV screen. I have not been dissappointed. Set to auto, point and shoot, and in 99% of the time the results have been flawless. The flash settings took a little bit of time to get used to but again the results were excellent. Set to the 2M Normal quality the prints were as good as you would wish and I had no problems running out of space. This camera is such… Read Full Review

    Written on: 27/08/2002 by Aaron Frodsham. (1 review written)

    The Fuji Finepix 4800 digital camera is one of the do everything, all-in-one generation. It is a great camera for businessmen and snapshooters. Its auto modes produce some of the best shots of any 2.3 megapixel camera. Though it produces a 4 MP file this camera should not be considered a 4 MP camera. Enlarging the image like one could with a 4 MP file tends to produce softer images than cameras with 4 MP CCDs. This may be the reason that many have said that there is a problem with the focus in… Read Full Review

    I only got my Fuji Finepix 4800 digital camera today but everything looks great - even managed to work out PC camera function after puzzling for 10 minutes over settings. Great quality pics at 1M setting - looks like 99 shots on 32MB. I'm very pleased… Read Full Review

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

    This Fuji Finepix 4800 is my second digital camera - first was an old SONY Mavica which had to go because of its size and poor print quality. Overall, I'm mighty impressed with this camera...tons of features, easy to use with a little practice, and prints look Great even at 8x10 on a photo-quality printer (I use an HP Photosmart 1115). Friends love the look of the design, but it does take a little getting used to (as in,"where do I put my thumb?", etc.). My only real complaint is the optical… Read Full Review

    Written on: 12/04/2002 by Pete. (1 review written)

    The Fuji Finepix 4800 is a Great Little digital camera. This is a cool looking camera as well. I really like the unique Porsche design!
    A real looker and built to last. The magnesium aluminum body gives a reassuring feeling that this camera can take a lickin and keep on tickin.
    The bottom line for me is the quality of the pics and this camera more than delivers. The outdoor pics are outstanding.
    Although I'm not that knowledgeable in the field of photography this camera seems to have more… Read Full Review

    Written on: 24/03/2002 by Scott K. (1 review written)

    The Fuji Finepix 4800 is an excellent digital camera for the novice. Camera shoots well in all conditions. Probably the best value camera on the market, you get sound, movie mode, and variable picture settings should you wish to move away from the automatic settings and be more adventurous. The camera also has the handy PC camera option should you wish to stay in touch with friends or family when you are away. The cradle is an excellent accessory. Compact
    Excellent features… Read Full Review

    Written on: 03/02/2002 by JS. (1 review written)

    The Fuji Finepix 4800 digital camera is impossible to hold if you've got large hands. If you hold it naturally you end up covering the speaker with your thumb. On the top of my camera the split line doesn't join correctly so it looks really badly made. Ergonomics have not been taken into account. For a Porsche design I am shocked by the poor quality and lack of thought in the layout of buttons and controls. I am an Industrial Designer and I would be ashamed to put my name on such a badly… Read Full Review

    Written on: 25/01/2002 by Arissa. (1 review written)

    The Fuji Finepix 4800 digital camera is extremely easy to use. So easy that my 5yr old loves to take lots of pictures, then easily upload them onto our PC via cradle, so he can see them in the screenshow viewed via the software provided by Fuji. He probably gets 3 out of twenty which are blurred! The camera is easily portable. The battery lasts all day without having to recharge, even whilst using the LCD half the the time. Also the cradle is not only used to upload pix to PC, but it acts as a… Read Full Review

    The Fuji finepix 4800 is my first digital camera, and I'm really impressed. I wanted a good quality digital camera without breaking the bank.

    The cradle, and ease of transfer to my PC have made reviewing the pictures easy.

    Pointless review.
    <br>
    <br>Looks like Anil is either shaking a lot when taking photo's or more likely in auto mode is not using the auto focus feature correctly.
    <br>
    <br>I have had no problems with the focus but you have to 'half click' first in order to set the focus correctly. Same with many autofocus cameras digital or otherwise.

    John Gaskell.'s Response to Anil.'s Review

    Written on: 11/02/2002

    I've experienced some of Anil's problems but put them down to the fact that I've been using the zoom to full extent and often in low-light. In those conditions any camera is technically at full-stretch and needs to be on a tripod for best results.

    Written on: 10/09/2001 by Neil Wells-West. (1 review written)

    I had been thinking about the Fuji 4700 for a while but the attractiveness of the cradle etc included with the 6800 made the 4700 look less good value. The Fuji 4800 was the perfect solution for me. This was my first foray into digital photography and I now cannot imagine going back to film etc. The Fuji 4800 is light, easy to handle and the zoom is great. My wife was initially worried about using a digital camera like this but now she takes it everywhere (maybe I'll have to buy another one… Read Full Review
