Controls on the back: At the top is the Mode dial with positions for: Auto, Movie, Scene Position, Portrait, Digital Zoom mode, Red Eye Reduction, Picture Stabilization, and Baby mode. The DISP/BACK button controls the amount of data on the LCD and lets you "back" out of menu screens. The "green arrow" button puts the camera in review mode. The 4-way selector is used for selecting images in review mode, and accessing the menu system. In record mode you press the "Left" button to toggle Macro focus on and off and the Flash modes are controlled with the "Right" button. Pressing it "Up" brightens the LCD display in record mode or acts as the delete function in playback mode. "Down" enables or disables the self-timer.

Power is supplied by a pair of standard AA batteries (alkaline one-use or rechargeable NiMH type). According to Fuji, off the shelf alkalines will let you capture up to 100 pictures, while a set of 2500mAh NiMH cells deliver as many as 350 pictures per charge. We recommend the latter, as they last longer and will save you money in the long run.
