Review posted for Fuji Finepix A205!|
(Tuesday, March 9, 2004 - 12:47 EST)
This is one that's been languishing in the "todo" pile for a while, but I'd already put it in Dave's Picks as a decent camera at a rock-bottom price.
This is the 2-megapixel "little brother" of the 3.2-megapixel A210 that I reviewed a little while ago. Overall performance is virtually identical to that of the A210, meaning very good daylight color, relatively poor performance under incandescent lighting, and little or no night-shooting capability. (Its color under daylight conditions is actually a bit better than the A210's though, and the A210 did very well there to begin with.)
While not a barn-burner in terms of performance or resolution, the A205's images will make decent-looking enlargements up to 8x10, and it's hard to beat, given its price. (Street prices for it are flirting with the $100 mark, a remarkable level, given its good basic image quality and 3x optical zoom lens.) If you're in the market for a good camera at a rock-bottom price, check it out!
