Fujifilm has announced the latest addition to its entry level "A range" in the form of the FinePix A700 – a 7.3 megapixel digital camera with 3x optical zoom and a sensitivity rating of 100-400.
As you’d expect from a beginner’s camera, it’s big on simplicity, with easy-to-use controls and menus, a decent-sized 2.4-inch screen for framing your images and scene selections for portrait, landscape, sports and night scenarios. There’s nom mention of this year’s favourite feature – anti-shake – so a steady hand may be required. There’s also movie shooting at 10fps with sound and 12MB of internal memory, which can be boosted by memory card.
Not the highest of specifications, but if you’re after something no nonsense for the family holiday, it might be worth a look depending on the price – which will be announced in October, when the camera hits the shelves.
