Fujifilm FinePix A350

The FinePix A350 is the flagship model for Fujifilm's A series of inexpensive point-and-shoot cameras. Its 5.2-megapixel resolution marks an increase over the 4 megapixels of its predecessor, the A340, and this camera slightly bumps up the LCD size from 1.5 inches to 1.7 inches. It also eliminates the need for a lens cap by incorporating a self-closing cover for its retractable lens. Other A350 features include a 3X optical zoom, a macro mode, and a continuous-shooting mode. Fujifilm often goes its own way in the physical design, menu structure, and image characteristics of its cameras.

Megapixel.net have reviewed the Fujifilm FinePix A350 and seem to like it. I quote-
"With the FinePix A350, 6 image quality settings are offered, and all combine the image size to a compression level that cannot be modified by the user. Moreover, only the 5M Fine setting offers a relatively low JPEG compression. All other image sizes use a compression level that is best described as an average level
...
The FinePix A350 benefits from Fujifilm's excellent and very reliable multi-segment metering, though sometimes the photos may not appear to be bright and well exposed on the monitor.

But, when the images are transferred to a computer and seen on a monitor, or even when they are printed directly, the quality of the exposure is usually revealed to be quite good."
