    “I bought this as a Birthday present to my girl-friend...”

    Written on: 11/08/2008 by mikejon (3 reviews written)

    I bought this as a Birthday present to my girl-friend and she has been pleased with it despite it's multi menu which required her referring to the comprehensive manual. Taking just x2 AA batteries, it is very light weight but compared with my MX1200 which lacks the cine feature (not missed) & USB connection, edges the technology forward at a budget price. They can be obtained on eBay at under £20 and with a decent case will serve a novice well… Read Full Review

    Well...Mine did the same thing. I got it for Xmas. About 2 months after,it would just shut off everytime I would try to erase the pictures from the memory card or even trying to take pictures. I tried it with 7 new sets of batteries, and kept doing the same thing. So I exchanged it for another one, but didn't have the chance to try it yet !

    For the pixels it has incredibly great photo quality. The camera is adjustable to just about anything you require of it for any amount of light or distance. The memory is adjustable as well as the type of shot you take, snap shot or movie shot. The software is easily enuff to deal with… Read Full Review

    “I was reading these reviews and was surprised no-one...”

    Written on: 03/12/2002 by kmc. (1 review written)

    I was reading these reviews and was surprised no-one was mentioning the fact that the A101's view finder is not straight. It's grand if one uses the lcd but the normal viewfinder is way off. Also the switch on the front for close up/ far away seems to be the wrong way round. If I select close up the camera never flashes and anything close up is out of focus. If I select far away then the camera will flash and everything is in focus. Apart from that the camera is great. I got a 64 Mb card as 8… Read Full Review

    You must have got a defective one. The viewfinder accurately shows 80% of the picture.

    Written on: 19/06/2002 by Chuck. (1 review written)

    The fuji Finepix A101 digital camera offers great pictures and low light optimization. Great value if you can get it for aronud $150 US (as of June 2002). I took a hundred pictures in all sorts of lighting conditions and they are very good. This is not a camera for detailed and very high quality picture taking. I use it for travel.

    I use it with WindowsXP (don't even need to load ANY software). I did load Finepix viewer on my laptop (windows2000) and it works great… Read Full Review

    Written on: 01/06/2002 by Jamie. (1 review written)

    I have just bought the Fuji finepix a101 digital camera and it's the best thing i have bought in a long time! I bought it for £128 and the delivery was superb. It is very easy to use after a quick flick through the instruction manual. For 1.3 mega pixels, i was AMAZED at the quality of the pics, the sharpest i have ever seen even beating 2.0 mega pixels. If you are a beginner and wanting a VERY good camera with a little bit of zoom then don't hesitate to buy it, you will not be unhappy… Read Full Review

    “The Fuji Finepix A101 digital camera replaces my AGFA...”

    Written on: 27/03/2002 by Chris. (1 review written)

    The Fuji Finepix A101 digital camera replaces my AGFA E-Photo 780 which, despite its now very outdated technology, was a thousand times easier to use. The biggest drawback with the FinePix A101 is the absolutely awful software that comes with it. It names your pictures ridiculous jumbles of numbers and letters, it saves them in places that you cant specify and if you have a zip drive (removeable disk as it appears in Windows) the program has a hard time telling between the Zip and the camera… Read Full Review

    How do you get the Removeable Disk icon?
    I have followed the User guide/Instruction manual.
    The CD installs itself with the USB driver.
    When connected the camera - usb port - PC, the FinePix Viewer software does not show the F: drive removeable disk (not on My Computer either)
    What's going on here???
    Thanks for any help.

    I have the FinePix A202.
    I just cannot figure out how to get the pictures onto my PC, Windows ME. Can anyone help? There does not seem to be the Removable Disk icon. The camera has the USB DSC mode setting. I've connected the USB port from camera-PC.
    Followed the instructions in the manual to the letter.
    Installed USB from CD again. Did a manual search of new hardware. It found the driver, but complained about some obscure system file.
    Any help?
    <br>Thanks.

    Written on: 04/01/2002 by The Bull. (1 review written)

    Unless you are a professional photographer, you do not need anything more than what the Fuji Finepix A101 digital camera has to offer. 1.3x pictures are of far better image quality than typical printers can print out and too big to send via email, I find myself taking 90% of the pictures in vga mode (low rez). With the 8mb smart media card included this allows 61 pictures to be taken which is plenty for the average person.
    Overall I'm very happy with this camera and feel bad for those who… Read Full Review

    Written on: 27/12/2001 by Flymo. (1 review written)

    I've been putting off getting a digital camera on the assumption that they were inferior to film & just a gimmick. Additionally the price seemed very steep compared to film cameras and I just wasn't willing to pay it. I still thing the high-end cameras are a bit much.

    However with Xmas approaching and my girlfriends insistance on buying me something 'gadgety' (top girl!), I decided to ask for a camera. On a tight budget, I decided on the a101 based on the reviews (including some of these) and… Read Full Review

    Written on: 12/11/2001 by GARIN LINNINGTON. (1 review written)

    A GOOD, USABLE DIGITAL CAMERA FOR THE PRICE (AROUND £158 INC 8mb SMARTMEDIA CARD). IT IS VERY SMALL AND LIGHT, A LITTLE UNDER 4" LONG, 1.5" DEEP, AND 2.5" HIGH, PERHAPS A LITTLE TOO LIGHT A PLASTICKY. THE MOVIE CAPTURE FEATURE MAKES THIS CAMERA STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD, VERY USEFUL FOR SENDING A SHORT MOVIE CLIP TO THE FOLKS BACK HOME. THE ONLY BAD POINTS ARE THE LACK OF ZOOM IN THE HIGHER RESOLUTIONS ABOVE 640 X 480, AND THE VIDEO AND PC CAMERA (WEBCAM) IMAGES ARE SO DARK THEY ARE UNUSABLE… Read Full Review

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

    Okay, lets start with the bad points about this camera.
    First, the webcam picture is dark unless you have a bright desk lamp 2 feet in front of your face. If you want a webcam, for anything other than frivolous use, this is probably not the cam for you (NB: I've not actually used any other webcams, but surely they must be better than this).
    Second, when connected to the PC, this camera went through a fresh set of batteries in under an hour. The mains adaptor is an ESSENTIAL accessory.
    Apart… Read Full Review

    Written on: 28/10/2001 by Jason Sayer. (1 review written)

    I've been looking around for a good, cheap 1.3 Megapixel camera with an LCD screen that could be used as a webcam. This proved difficult as not many have all three. Until I spotted the new Fuji Finepix A101! This new camera seems to have it all and comes from a brand that i've heard of. None of the features are a gimmick it does everything well, great pictures, nice video recording (no sound) and a good webcam (albeit a bit dark). As the camera takes Smartmedia cards it is very easy to store… Read Full Review

    Written on: 13/10/2001 by John Rogers. (1 review written)

    Great camera; very easy to use with so many features on it and great as web cam too. But video is very dark. I had to use a small lamp behind the camera to get the brightness up. I like the fact it uses smart media so just popped the card from my mp3 player in. That's 497 photos at 640x480 and 198 at 1280x960 normal jpeg compression on my 64Mb card, that should do for a 3 week holiday.
