Fuji FinePix 2300






Designed with the first-time digital photographer in mind, the Fujifilm FinePix 2300 offers point-and-shoot convenience with a 2.1 megapixel CCD sensor for simple, quality picture taking with outstanding color. The FinePix 2300 is also quite affordable at just $279 and is available now.

The FinePix 2300 mimics the lightweight, user-friendly design of its MX-1200 and FinePix 1300 predecessors, allowing users to work its main functions via a few controls on the back of the camera. Aside from the 1.6-inch color, liquid crystal display - on which the user can view the subject both before and after the picture is taken - the most recognizable feature of the FinePix 2300 is its function control dial. This dial allows users to navigate effortlessly through the camera's menu system for easy access to the various shooting, playback, five flash and six white balance modes.
