Details of Fuji Finepix S304 and Where to Find the Best Prices
The Fuji Finepix S304 is an easy to operate digital camera. It is aimed at both people who enjoy taking photographs for fun, on holidays and at get togethers and more serious photographers who are looking for a little more control over the final picture. The most notable feature of the Fuji Finepix S304 is its 6x optical zoom lens. This is twice the "standard" length for a zoom lens with this level of digital camera. It can also use external lens adapters for long distance and wide angled shots.
It has a fully automatic mode therefore it will appeal to anyone who is looking for a digital camera that they can just turn on and start taking pictures with. For photographs looking for more control there is also a manual mode available. The manual mode lets you set exposure compensation, white-balance, flash brightness, sharpness and aperture settings for manual changes in depth of field.
The Fuji Finepix S304 is a 3 megapixel digital camera and will therefore produce high quality prints of up to 10x8". It is relatively lightweight, weighing around 295g without batteries or storage card. Its dimensions are 99.7 (W) x 77.3 (H) x 69.3 (D) mm and it has a handy grip to help you control the camera.
For picture composition and review there is a 1.8" TFT LCD screen. Again this is a good size for a camera of this specification. There is a movie mode that can take short movie clips of up to 60 seconds or up to 200 seconds in a lower resolution. The movies have sound. It can also be set up to work as a webcam and therefore has video conferencing capabilities.
Images are stored on a xd card and power is supplied to the camera through four AA batteries. As with all digital cameras we recommend that you invest in some rechargeable batteries and a recharger.

There are no real cons for this camera.
If you are looking for an easy to use digital camera and a long zoom lens is important then the Fuji Finepix S304 is as good a choice as you are likely to find. If you would like to consider a similar camera, but without the extra long zoom try the Fuji Finepix A303. For a digital camera with a few extra features take a look at the Fuji Finepix F410.
