Manual and review Fujifilm FinePix A100/A150

When I was choosing a camera, I was looking for high video quality and resolution at a reasonable price. My choice fell on the FinePix AV150 Fujifilm. My first impression is that the picture on the bright and contrasty screen is excellent. The design also pleased me.

The fast processor is just what you need. All in all, this is exactly what I was looking for. The camera takes pictures quickly due to the constant focus. I purchased rechargeable batteries of 2100 milliamps each. One charge lasts for a long time. However, I was frustrated that the quality of photos deteriorates when switching modes. But the video is recorded perfectly, without freezes. The only drawback is a quiet speaker when watching video with zoom. When the battery runs out, the lens stays extended, and you have to wait for the battery to restore the charge and slide the lens back in. Overall, the camera is a good camera. I have never once regretted the purchase and would advise others to buy this model.
