Amazon.com Product Description The Fujifilm FinePix A600 6.3MP Digital Camera joins the Fujifilm FinePix A400
in Fujifilm's entry-level digicam line-up. The A600, and the rest of the A-series cameras, are ideal for the first-time digital buyer or any photographer who craves an inexpensive point-and-shoot digital camera, but don't be fooled by the simplicity.
The large, 2.4-inch LCD monitor makes it a cinch to frame the perfect shot.
Just because this camera won't drain your pocketbook, doesn't mean you'll have to settle for poor image quality.
The FinePix A600 combines 6.3-megapixel resolution with an award-winning, innovative Super CCD sensor. The sensor features an octagonal pixel design that allows you to capture highlights and shadow detail in every picture you take (the Super CCD sensor is the recipient of the IEEE's Walter Kosonocky Award for Outstanding Achievement in Image Sensor Technology). Using the human eye as a model and mimicking the way it functions, the sensor enhances vertical and horizontal resolution, improves color reproduction, widens dynamic range, and increases signal-to-noise ratios and light sensitivities. All of these factors play important roles in the production of higher-quality digital pictures.
The A600 features a 3.0x optical zoom Fujinon lens with a focal range equivalent to 36-108mm on a 35mm camera. Fujinon, Fujifilm sister company, produces these high-quality optics that are used by broadcasters, astronomers, scientists, the military and others to bring their subjects closer with crisp, clear image quality. The A600 comes equipped with a large, 2.4-inch, high-resolution (112,000 pixel) LCD monitor housed in the attractive metallic-finish body. The bright, sharp LCD features an anti-glare coating that improves LCD viewing in direct light. Compose your photos with ease in all kinds of light conditions with the assistance of the A600's monitor. Plus, its generous size adds to the pleasure of sharing photo playback with friends and family.
For best results, choose a shooting mode that optimizes the A600's exposure for a given situation. Macro shooting lets you zoom in on small details. The Sport mode captures fast movement, and the 3:2 Format mode helps you frame your shots for the best results for prints.
Ever run out of digital storage just at the wrong moment? Not with the A600. With 12 MB of built-in storage you'll never have to miss that special shot. Think of it as your internal insurance policy for those great, not-to-be missed photo opportunities. Amazingly easy to operate, all you have to do is switch-on the FinePix A600, and you'll be ready to shoot. Controls have been arranged for one-handed operation, eliminating the need to fumble with a bunch of ill-placed buttons or scroll wheels. The full range of functions includes the 3x optical zoom, a selection of convenient scene positions (portrait, landscape, sport, and night), enhanced macro mode, and slow synchro flash. You can even view your photos in 3:2 aspect to ensure that all the elements of your picture are included when you order prints.
Other camera features include a QVGA movie recording mode (10 fps) with monaural sound for capturing quick, digital video snippits; a video output for your TV monitor (NTSC/PAL) to display photographs on your television; a USB digital interface for PC connectivity; PictBrdige compatibility; and an xD-Picture card compatible slot. The FinePix A600 is powered by two AA batteries.
