Before I bought the Fuji Z1, I did much research and read a lot of post from many people from all kinds of website. I finally decide to get this little camera. I currently have an Olympus C5050 digital camera. The reason I bought the Fuji Z1 is because I wanted a small compact digital camera where I can just slip it in my normal shirt pocket and the way I go. My Olympus was a great digital camera but it was not very compact.
I just wanted to get to the point on this little camera. It is very compact alright. It is the size of a credit card and about 1 inch thick. I like the port, it connects to the computer and all you have to do is place the camera on the port, press the button and you can get the photos on your computer in 3 seconds. To disconnect from the computer, just press the button on the port again and you are disconnect from the computer. Keep in mind the camera must be place on the port to charge, there’s no other way around it. I like the camera from the start, very friendly to use. Movie mod is good too and the sounds are good. One thing I like the most is that it played in Window Media right off the bat.
The picture quality at 5MP fine mode (highest mode) is great, but not excellent. When compared to my Olympus C5050 at the same shot, the Olympus is better in term of fine line/clear quality. I did this by zooming in both pictures on PhotoShop and after several zoom, the Olympus still has the better/clearer pictures. Also one thing I like about the Olympus that the Fuji doesn’t have is the Olympus has two memory slots for XD card and CF card. Also I love the burst mode on the Olympus. It’s takes frame by frame shots of a person by holding down on the shooting button and it goes up to about 40 shots burst mode. The Fuji doesn’t have this mode. It also does not have a panorama mode that the XD card supports.
I like the camera a lot, but the quality could be better. However, the camera is very good for people on the go, vacationing, camping, or just wants a compact digital camera. I got this baby from eBay for $165, display/like new model. The battery life is comparable to your average rechargeable digital camera, up to 3-4 hours. However, it varies when using the flash a lot. I guess it really depends on your use. I almost bought the Casio EX-S600 which cost about $275-$300. However, the price was good on this find and I bought the Fuji Z1 instead. Because every camera has its PROS AND CONS, I think this is a winner in its own ways. My next one is a Digital SLR Professional line.
Good Luck Folks
I bought this camera as a step up from an older Fuji Film Camera I had. One of the best choices I've ever made. The Z1 I purchased was a factory reconditioned, but looks and works brand new. The pictures are crystal clear and the camera is easy to use.
It has a very nice size LCD screen that gets great color and really gives you a great view of what you are taking a picture of.
The Z1 is slim and extremely attractive. It is small and practical. It doesn't take AA batteries like a lot of cameras (and every other camera I have owned). Instead, it has a charging cradle that plugs into your computer. The cradle serves three purposes. It securely cradles the camera, charges it, and enables you to take the pictures from the camera and put them onto your computer.
As for the pictures, they are crystal clear. I use this camera to take pictures of the items I list on eBay. No matter how close up I take the picture, they always come out clear. Open that picture up on your computer and zoom allll the way in and you can still see vivid detail...no blurriness!
I highly recommend this camera for ANYONE. Whether you buy it new or factory reconditioned, it will provide you with an awesome picture taking experience.
I really like the size and available megapixels. I can carry it on my belt and not even know it is there. It's quick to retrieve and use. It is also very user friendly and takes very good pictures. I was supprised to find that it took quite good low light photos.
I do wish that it had a view finder along with the lcd screen on the back for framing the shot faster. In order to download or charge the camera batteries, you must place the camera in holder that comes with it and then plug in two other cords to charge, or use the UBS plug along with the holder to charge the battries. It is just kind of a hassle.
I decided to buy this camera because all my other cameras are Fuji Film and all work about the same and use the same icons. There was'nt much of a learning curve. I have enjoyed all my other Fuji Film cameras.
A great camera for the want to be expet photographer. Light weight and easy to use and the screen is super sized for easy viewing. Buy some extra batteries (you can find losts inexpensively on Ebay) as the camera seems to go through them a little more quickly that other digital cameras I've used. It's a great deal and the images are sharp and clear.
Bought this 5.1 megapixel camera used from an ebay seller about 3 weeks ago.
I upgraded from a Fuji 4800z which I love but is a bit bulky and slow to start up. Happy to say the Z1 is as small a camera as I would ever want, about the size of a deck of cards. And the start-up time is almost instant, you just slide the lens cover back and the LCD is on and ready to shoot. Like the 4800z the Z1 comes with a dock for getting your photos off the camera and recharging.
Can't really complain about anything on this one, if you're looking for a tiny 5 megapixel camera check out the Z1 or the newer Z2.
