New Camera – Fuji FinePix F601Z

We finally received a replacement digital camera for the one that was stolen. It’s a Fuji FinePix F601Z. It looks to be a good camera; 3.1 mega pixels, 3 x optical zoom, lots of manual override of the automatic settings, etc.
On the minus side; it’s a proprietary rechargeable battery, so I’ll have to get a spare, and it takes 5 hours to charge from empty; the camera uses smart media cards rather than compact flash, so the one CF card which wasn’t stolen isn’t any use; it’s also not a traditional camera shape, which will take some getting used to. On the plus side; we did get the cradle with it.
It will also record short movies (and at 640 X 480 too), so I’m looking forward to playing with that.
It’s fully charged now, so I can have a play with it.

  1. Glad you got a new (replacement) camera, it feels weird for me not to have a camera around these days 🙂

    I have a USB smart media card reader that I don’t use (or plan to use), perhaps you’d like to swap it for the CF card?

    You know how to reach me…
