If you're looking for a reliable slim camera that won't cost you an arm and a leg, the 6 megapixel Fuji F470 might be just what you're looking for.
Though it doesn't come with a lot of bells and whistles, the five-ounce F470 is a great "take anywhere" camera. In full Auto mode in daylight shooting situations, the Fujifilm F470 is a beginning photographer's dream with a responsive image processor for good shot-to-shot performance.
Though it doesn't use one of Fujifilm's Super CCD HR sensors, the Fuji F470 employs a more than adequate 6 megapixel CCD image sensor that can capture the sort of rich, dramatic color Fuji has been known for since its roll film days. If you like manual control other than the most rudimentary exposure and white balance control, the Fuji F470 will leave you wanting. But if you like a small camera you can easily slip into a bag while driving around town or travelling and forget about until it's time to shoot, the F470 is designed for you.
A simple, lightweight camera with a decent sensor and a big 2.5 inch LCD, the Fuji F470 can take some dynamite pictures in the right lighting. See the full review for more.
