Editor's Review

Check out a newer Fuji. Here's what we had to say about the F470 when it was released in January 2006:

The 6 megapixel Fuji FinePix F470 is an easy-to-operate camera for the mainstream user. The Fuji FinePix F470 is nothing to get too excited over. There aren't any bells and whistles, but instead a sturdy, standard camera that a lot of minimalist and novice users might prefer to the overloaded, confusing, and often expensive advanced cameras. With 6 megapixels, you can take stunning photos that will print very well and the large 2.5" LCD screen makes previewing your shots a pleasure.

Great Camera (Misty — 08/02/2008)

This camera is awesome! I have dropped this thing on concrete, numerous times, it's been knocked off a high bar and landed in a puddle of beer, and it is still awesome, the picture quality is wonderful! So clear! It's so easy to use too. All around great camera! Totally worth the cost.

Good, basic camera (Monica — 05/31/2008)

I have had this camera about a year and a half. It's easy to use, takes good pictures and is sturdy. For everyday snapshots I think it's a great camera.

So easy to use (Lindsay — 05/17/2007)

I have had this camera for over a year now and I love it. It is so easy to use for those who are not good with electronics or professional photographers. It's small and the re chargable battery saves money on batteries.

I LOVE THIS CAMERA (John — 04/26/2007)

For the price and quality, the optical zoom is great, the digital zoom is OK but this camera takes great pictures. I've had it for a while now and got a 2GB xD card (which it DOES support) and it holds like 700 photos on the highest quality/resolution setting. It also takes about a hour of video footage (avi files). The videos are alright, not many options for like low light, but the camera takes excellent pictures in all types of light (especially on the auto setting).

Think of as a really nice DISPOSABLE camera!! (Pam White — 03/22/2007)

I purchased my first f470 in July 06 after much research it seemed to have the best features for the best price. It takes really quality pictures, is easy to use, has a large viewer screen, and good battery time. The only complaint about the photos is it is nearly impossible to take night shots. None of the flash options seemed to work for low light situations. After owning the camera for 4 months I opened its padded carrying case to find the LCD screen was completely shattered!! I contacted Fuji and was pretty much informed that the cost of repair would be more than the purchase of a new camera. In October06 I ordered my second f470. It also worked fine until I took it on a ski trip in December. While on the mountain the camera apparently "froze". I never even got the chance to take a photo with it!! It has not worked since. The lens will not open and though I can turn the camera on it will not turn off. I must remove the battery to turn it off. Once again I contacted Fuji...same would be less expensive to just buy a new camera!!! I have been without a camera since December...I am tempted to buy yet another Fuji470 simply because I already have the correct memory cards as well as TWO extra batteries now!!
The camera is good when it works - just be prepared to buy a new one - repairs are more costly than the camera itself - even under warranty!!

Fantastic Family-Style Camera (bbtex — 12/31/2006)

I work in a retail store where we sell MANY models of digitalis. The F470, with it's large LCD Viewscreen allows superb shot selection. The 6 Megapixel gives great photos. It is by no means a professional camera, but for families wanting to capture family moments, I believe it's the best choice.

Perfect (Stephen — 12/20/2006)

All Pictures I've Taken seem to be Hi-Def!
I've taken pictures in different lighting, and with and without flash. The best iso is 64. iso is a setting in the camera

Impressive (JB — 12/01/2006)

My roommate bought this camera about a year ago and it's worked great for him and I've been really impressed.

It's thin and compact, it has a large screen to view your pictures, it seems to be pretty rugged and has survived numerous trips around the country in his pocket, and most importantly it takes beautiful pictures.

I'm considering getting one myself and would definitely recommend!!!

Couldn't download. Not covered under warranty! (John — 11/28/2006)

After three months use the USB download packed up. Sent back under warranty. The small connector seems to have been damaged by the lead they supply to go to the PC. But they sent a letter saying ����100 to fix, buy another camera. Look carefully at the service when you buy these cameras!

Best Camera I've owned (Corey — 11/26/2006)

This is by far the best camera I have ever owned. It takes pictures almost instantly and has a huge LCD screen that has nearly zero lag time from what your looking at. Go out and buy this camera.

I love the Fuji f470. (tgartist — 10/30/2006)

I received the F 470 after my E510 was stolen. The F470 has a rechargeable battery & is more compact & takes great color, High Quality, still & motion pictures.The price is reasonable & I couldn't find anything else to compare with it. I am an artist & the reprints of my art are true to life.

Absolutely FANTASTIC! (annabel — 10/25/2006)

I have had this camera for nearly 5 months now, and i have found it absolutely fantastic! the quality of the pictures are outstanding, and i have just learned about the black & white photos- amazing! there are so many different scene settings, which really help, and the lcd screen is one heck of a beauty! its slim, easy to use, very light and a superb easy to use camera, which i am extremely pleased with! the video is fab too! i would recommend this camera to anyone- and to the people that have dropped their f470, be careful, because its a camera- something you have spent money on and it needs looking after properly. Have you put the strap on the camera? If you just quickly slip it on one of your wrists, they'll be no trouble with dropping it. Buy this camera, its the best for a 6 mega pixel camera.

amazing (christine — 10/19/2006)

I've had this camera for almost a year now and I have no complaints. I have spilled water on it and dropped it once on the floor and it is still operating. The large screen allows for easy viewing of your picture and the quality of the pictures is always very sharp. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Almost Perfect...! (Nadia — 10/06/2006)

I had this camera for a total of three months before it totally broke...
The Camera itself had amazing quality pictures and video, and also was very easy to use...but is very breakable and delicate

Nice Camera; Poor Service (Martin L Stone — 09/28/2006)

A great camera. Sharp pics, easy to use. However, damages easy. One drop, camera totalled according to a major electronics service department. Service plan null & void due to alleged impact damage. Told that the repair exceeds cost of unit. Seems strange for a minor drop.

all smiles (Sharon — 08/11/2006)

This is my first digital camera. I did a lot of research before purchasing. I love this camera. It was easy to understand the manual and start to take pictures as well as load them into my PC. Thank you to all who wrote reviews.

Excellent Results! Easy to use. (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

What more can I say? I've had a number of digital cameras, from SLRs to small compacts like this one. This is by far the easiest to use with the best results. I wanted the most megapixels and quality possible in a very small package. This camera is a good value and is VERY small. I am very pleased with this camera.
