I have been looking for a great point and shoot camera for a long time.
I was convinced by the canon 550 but i strumbled upon another model just yesterday : The Fuji a-900 / a-920 .

The only problem is that i can't seem to find any reviews of the fuji-type camera?

Anyway hero who possesses such a camera?

Greetings,

Hans

Hans-

No, I could not find a review of the Fuji A-900 either. The features of the A-900 are very similiar to the Fuji E-900 which has had many reviews. The E-900 is also 9mp, 4X optical zoom with a 31mm wide angle, etc. The E-900 is available for around $(US) 200.00 on the internet.

The Fuji A920 isn't due to be released in the U.S. until September. The A900 was just released in May. That is one reason why you haven't seen any reviews on them. Another reason is that they are entry level cameras, and the market is getting overloaded with them, so the professioinal reviewers just don't have a lot of time to spend on them.

You say you are looking for a great point and shoot camera, so why are you looking at bottom rung models?

Spend a little more and get a lot more camera, like the Fuji F31. It will give you much better low light performance, it has a higher resolution LCD, a faster continuous drive, better battery life, aperture and shutter priority modes, and face detection. If money is a real issue for you, then consider the F40. You'll lose the aperture and shutter priority modes, but it is still a better camera than the entry level models.

Good luck with your choice.

I second the Hun's advice - I've just got an F31fd and am very pleased with the image quality, low light performance, good battery life and operation. At the moment they are selling in the UK on Amazon at a huge discount to the original price. My only negative is that full Auto mode is just that. Its best to use one of the manual modes so you can control exposure, white balance, focus mode, etc.

I am sorry to report that there are no Canon equivalents to the Fuji F-31. However, the Fuji F-40 will take SD cards.
