Fujifilm FinePix AX300

Today I got a new digital camera for my photography club/hobby. I was previously using my iPod touch for these purposes. Now, I have  suitable digital camera, so I will post some test shots and video.

The camera is really lightweight, stylish, doesn't feel cheap and is simple to use. I wouldn't drop it too many times but it's still durable.

The quality of the pictures taken by the camera are wonderful, and obviously much better than my iPod touch. Let me show you what I mean -

The Fujifilm FinePix AX300 also shoots 720p, 480p, and 320p video. You are allowed to shoot in HD for about 10 minutes, 480p for around 26 minutes, and in 320p for over an hour. 480p is really nice, actually. Not better than HD, obviously, but very suitable for longer events and clips. I will post test videos soon. There are many camera modes - 

  • Scene Recognition
  • Automatic
  • Program AE 
  • Movie Mode
  • Natural Flash/No Flash
  • Natural Light
  • Portrait
  • Baby Mode
  • Smile and Shoot (smile detection)
  • Landscape
  • Panorama
  • Sport
  • Night
  • Night (tripod)
  • Fireworks
  • Sunset
  • Snow
  • Beach
  • Party
  • Flower
  • Text
As you can see from the lengthy list above, you can take pictures in almost ANY situation and have the pictures turn out great. 

My only drawback for this camera at this point is that its power comes from batteries, meaning you cannot plug it into the wall and charge it, or charge via USB. While this may be convenient for some people such as those traveling, having to keep AA batteries on hand can get annoying. Buying batteries can get quite expensive, too. You can always pick up a battery tester at a camera store or something like that to make sure your batteries work.  

I love this camera so far and it will now be a replacement in a more professional setting (outdoors, events) for my iPod touch's camera.
