5-0 out of 5 stars Canon Triumphs Again!
This is the successor to the EOS Elan 7. It is what the Elan 7 could have been, should have been, and, finally, is. Though the Elan 7 didn't leave much to be desired, there were a couple of modifications that would have made it the perfect camera for intermediate to advanced photographers. These improvements are an illuminated external LCD, better light metering, and faster AF.

The new finish and emblems are gorgeous. The finish is extremely matte, so it's very dark and handsome, and the Elan 7n logo is now a relief on a plaque attached to the body that's also holographic, instead of the painted on white and red logo of the old Elan 7. Though this has nothing to do with its ability to produce amazingly focused and metered images, it sure makes it one heck of an attractive body.

It is arguably one of the quietest 35mm SLR cameras ever made, and I agree. Its whisper drive film transport produces noise so quiet you can only hear it if your ear is pressed right to the body. The mirror and shutter action, though audible, are also well below the sound levels heard in most other cameras. It makes the higher-end Canons, and just about all 35mm Nikons, Minoltas, and Pentaxes sound like gun shots by comparison. Also, when the silent film rewind option is set in the camera's custom functions, this, too, cannot be heard without pressing one's ear to the body. But, even its high-speed film rewind is quiet, if you ask me, and it takes only 5 seconds to rewind a 24-exposure roll of film!

Its auto-focus system is the fastest any Elan has ever seen. It can track things moving at a whopping 31 miles per hour at close distances! Trust me, this is fast! Only the rarest of sporting events would pose a challenge to this camera's AF system.

Its light metering, especially its new E-TTL II flash metering, is almost frighteningly intelligent and accurate. When used with an EX series Speedlite, the camera uses distance information from the lens plus its readings from the 35-zone light meter (both from an ambient light reading and a pre-flash reading) to calculate an appropriate flash exposure. This works in much the same way Nikon's 3D-matrix metering does, so, now, Nikon has some good competition in this category. I find that my Canon Elan 7n with the 420EX Speedlite produces exposures that are just as beautiful as those produced by Nikon systems. And, the high-speed flash sync is wonderful, because I can shoot with wide-open apertures and not worry about not being able to use the flash with the higher shutter speeds that result.

Its shooting speed is a grin-inducing 4 frames per second. Even the EOS 3 only does 3.5 fps without the incredibly expensive power booster with the Ni-MH battery pack, and the Nikon N80 only does about 2.5 frames per second. Oh, and you can get a battery pack for the Elan 7n (the BP-300) that will let you use AA batteries while providing you with an extended horizontal grip for better stability, a vertical grip for more comfortable work in the vertical orientation, and vertical shutter release and exposure lock buttons. Even the Nikon N-80 doesn't offer a vertical grip or shutter release with its battery pack.

This camera features mirror lockup, with the ability to use the RC-1 or RC-5 infrared wireless shutter remote. So, now, not only do you not get camera shake from the mirror going up during macro photography, but you also don't have to touch anything attached to the camera such as a shutter release cable, which could also cause camera shake. That's awesome.

The Elan 7n also lets you customize its settings and performance with 13 custom functions. This includes mirror lockup (another feature missing from the Nikon N80 or lower-end Canons), leaving the film leader out after rewinding it, controlling what the various buttons on the body do, as well as how the camera controls auto-focus assist lights, the flash, etc.

And, let's not forget its 7-point wide-area auto-focus, with selectable points and light metering being linked to the selected focus point.

All of these features, plus several I didn't even mention, make for extremely reliable point-and-shoot simplicity for the casual or inexperienced photographer who wants to get great shots without the hassle of learning all the stuff that's involved in true hands-on photography, yet the camera provides more features than even the pros can shake a stick at. And, it does it for around $300.00, which is 1/3 to 1/4 of the cost of comparable bodies.

Canon has triumphed once again!

PRO's:

-Durable
-Reliable
-Affordable
-Fast
-Quiet
-Exceptionally accurate (both in focusing and metering)
-Packed with features
-Stylish
-Compatible with a very nice line of accessories

CON's:

-My only complaint about this camera is its lack of a real focus assist beam. Most of the EOS bodies have built-in near-infrared focus assist lights that project patterns of vertical, horizontal, or combinations of both lines onto the subject for low-light and low-contrast AF operation. Why on Earth Canon decided to make the Elan 7/7n's built-in flash the AF assist light seems to defy all conventional logic and wisdom. First, it fires a short but rapid burst of flashes that are not only annoying to the user, but generally frightening to living subjects (I used it in a restaurant once with my Elan 7, and people actually screamed in terror...I've since learned to disable this in the custom functions...in fact, it was the first CF I set when I got the Elan 7n). Second, if it's being used for low-contrast subjects, well, it just doesn't help there at all, because it doesn't add any contrasting patterns for the AF system to focus on. However, when you attach an external flash, this problem is usually solved, because most dedicated flash units have focus assist beams. ... Read more

Should you really "shake it like a Polaroid picture?"
Ever since the song "Hey Ya" by Andre 3000 of Outkast came out, everyone is shaking their Polaroid pictures. Shaking or waving a Polaroid picture to help the development process originated in the early days of peel-apart film. After peeling the negative, the image needed to dry before it could be handled, so waving the photo helped it to dry more quickly. When using the integral films (600, Spectra, 500, SX-70/Time-Zero, i-Zone) that are used in our most popular current camera models (Polaroid One, OneStep, JoyCam, etc.), the image develops and dries behind a clear plastic window and never touches the air, so shaking or waving has no effect. In fact, excessive shaking or waving can actually damage the image. Rapid movement during development can cause portions of the film to separate prematurely, or can cause "blobs" in the picture. The best way to ensure a perfectly developed image is to simply lay the picture on a flat surface immediately after it exits the camera. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best instant camera although it's my first
ok. even though i didn't have much info. about this product, i really needed an instant camera and
other products at amazon were not very tempting or pretty. so i had no better choice than to just purchase this.

i've been using this camera for about a week. and i've taken about 15 pictures[trying to save films]
and the results are just beautifully fine! some of the pictures
are just so lovely with great color and texture. also self-timer is really useful.
but i really never used red-eye preventing button yet. but i assume that's also helpful

if you want to check how the picture would look, look in here:

so if you're trying to buy an instant camera and don't know what to buy,
try this one. other cameras are too cheap or too expensive
this camera is just right amount of money to spend with great results!

i greatly recommned it ^-^

5-0 out of 5 stars Great results from a 'construction' camera
I bought this camera at a going-out-of-business sale at a local retail store about a year ago. I thought the 'construction' nature of the camera would make it more durable, while still providing fairly good pictures. Little did I know that the pictures would be so good!
I never would have guessed that this camera would take such crisp, clear pictures. I have shot more than a half-dozen pkgs of film and every picture has turned out fine. Please understand...this is not a 35mm camera with all the bells & whistles. It is a Polaroid instant camera (w/ flash) that produces good, instant pictures. That being said, it is very rugged and durable and will tolerate adverse weather better than your 35mm will. I have taken pictures in the rain w/o problems - you only have to remember to protect the film when it exits the camera. It needs to be kept dry & warm...just like any polaroid.
If you go into this with the correct expectations, you will not be disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the guy who has everything...
This camera is a great idea for someone who has everything, and who likes to do home improvement projects and keep track of them. It's quick to use, and has great space for reference for each project. And, it's easy enough to use to document little parts of each individual project, to see the details necessary. I'd recommend it for a home improvement buff who is hard to buy for. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What is wrong with it? NOTHING!
I bought this camera brand new and I have to that it is a great camera. I needed a new 35mm fully manual but didn't feel like spending a fortune. I read the specs on the camera and bought it. It is one hell of a work horse. Anyone who bashes this camera has not used it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Newest Incarnation of Nikon's Veritable Classic.
The FM series of cameras from Nikon has a long and distinguished history. The FM10 is a totally manual camera with through the lens center weighted metering. The beauty of the manual system is that you have a complete range of shutter speeds if the batteries fail. Additionally, you get to set the camera settings how you want to without trying to out think and out smart the auto programming that most cameras have now. In other words, you get to take the picture; not the camera. The FM10 is a sturdy camera that has one of the widest ranges of lenses available to it. There is not a lens that you can think of that can not be found for this camera. Beginners or professionals: anyone that wants to be a photographer and not just a button pusher should get this camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Little Camera that Could
Most of the reviews I've read about this camera say it's cheap, not up to Nikon's standards, and made out of horrible plastic.

They're very wrong. The camera's lighter than most manual cameras I've held, but it feels very sturdy. The lens it comes with is just fine for students and beginners, and I'll hold on to it even though I plan on getting a fixed 50mm Nikon lens very soon. Still, for the price, you can't beat it!

If you've read other reviews about how cheap this camera feels and you're weary, all I can say is go to a camera store and hold it. If you want something much more rugged you'll pay a lot more money. If you want something to start shooting with then get this camera. It'll also help you start building a good Nikon kit so if you decide to upgrade bodies later you won't have to repurchase all your lenses.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good - but make sure you're comfortable with size
It is essentially a facelift job on Nikon N65 (marketed outside US as F65), and all the good things that can be said about N65 apply to this product, too: it's reliable, it's capable of fully-manual operation (although this can be a little fiddly and N75 will feel more natural in automatic or semi-automatic mode).

Quality of pictures, for the price, is stunning, and in the line-up of entry-to-medium level SLRs this is definitely the one to choose (for example, auto-focus speed beats Canon equivalent hands down; Canon Rebel 300 - marketed outside US as Canon EOS 300 - also looks decidedly like a cheap compact camera with a big lens on top).

For many, many users (including myself) it will provide all the advanced functions that they will ever want. Pricier "professional" cameras like N80 are of course more robust and may have a few extra features or even faster AF, but the difference in price will be so significant that you will have to be a heavy user to make a more expensive camera pay for itself.

The only reservation about N75 is the size: Nikon tried to make this camera as small as possible, which makes it more agreeable for delicate hands (or so they think). For someone like me, a person with bigger paws, it does not feel right - it is just not chunky enough to provide a good grip: a lightweight camera it might be, but still it is no compact thing which you could put in your shirt pocket. This is an important consideration: all the good features will bring you no joy if you feel awkward holding the camera in your hands.

5-0 out of 5 stars One great camera
This camera is amazing. I've been using one for about 5 months and I'm amazed at the high quality pictures I've gotten. The camera has a lot of advanced features that allow even someone new to SLR photography to take excellent pictures. The camera also includes 4 priority modes which allow you to develope even more as a better photographer.

The lens that comes with the camera is a 28-80mm f3.3-5.6 Nikkor. This is a good all around lens. I used it for the first three months solo before getting a 70-300mm lens. I still use the 28-80 a lot, but if you plan on continuing taking pictures, then you should get a bigger telephoto lens.

The camera is very easy to use and if you get one, experiment with all the functions on the camera. You will most likely be very happy with the results.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera f
This is a great camera for amateurs because it has Nikon quality at a great price. Please don't think cheap piece of crap, though. Its zoom isn't great but thats why it's for amateurs. Note: NOT FOR BEGINNERS FOR THAT A SIMPLE POINT AND SHOOT WILL DO. It's easy to load and to use. And has a dicent flash syncro of 1/90. I also reccomend a Quantaray Filter to replace the lense cap becuse after a while the lense cap get extremely annoying.

4-0 out of 5 stars Need to know something about the N75
I now own a N60 which does not work with an external flash, I would like to know before purchasing this one if the external flash would work with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, economical SLR
I love my Nikon N75 - it's by far the best camera I've ever owned. I've had it for several months now, and have taken the best pictures of my life with it. A great first SLR, due to the ability to leave it in fully automatic mode at first, and then start using the expanded features as you learn.

I mainly wanted to write this review to debunk the 'error' a previous reviewer was complaining about. They really should read the owner's manual... The 'film not loaded error icon' that they are talking about is used in two ways on this camera. If when you first load the film, something goes wrong, this will blink to indicate the film was not loaded correctly. The second use is as a 'low-film' indicator. When you're looking through the viewfinder, this light will blink when you hit 5 exposures left. It's obviously meant to let you know you're getting close to the end of your film, so you don't miss that 'perfect shot' due to running our of film. The fact that the reviewer went through several of these cameras, and never figured this out astounds me. I've never had to contact Nikon support, but I would hope that the support person I got would be a little more knowledgeable than the people she talked too...

Overall, if you're looking to get started with an SLR, you can't go wrong with this camera. I would, however, suggest that you visit your local Ritz (or equivilent camera shop) to hold onto the camera, and compare it to a few others. I was all set to buy a Canon Rebel Ti, based soley on reviews - until I went to the shop. It just felt wrong in my hands, where the Nikon felt perfect. It's all a matter of personal preferrence, so you'll want to make sure you're getting the right one.

I've also been pretty hard on this camera since I got it (Ritz has an optional replacement warranty, so I've not been too worried) - including getting it soaked on a boat trip. It's kept on going through everything I've thrown at it - very durable.

Pros:

-Can be used as a point-and-shoot when needed (or while learning)
-Has the ability to control every aspect of the picture taking process.
-Great built in flash
-Amazing 25 point 3D metering system
-Controls are all easily accesible while holding the camera
-In my opinion, it just feels sturdier and more comfortable in your hand than the Canon Rebel Ti - Canon's equivilant camera

Cons:
-Being an SLR, it's a little on the big side. It is, however, lighter than you might expect. Basically, you have to be making the commitment to carrying it around with you. For this, I'd highly recommend one of the lowepro bags - they're about the smallest you can get for this type of camera. ... Read more

but with this starter kit you get the best photo book of holga photography, a roll of medium format film, the flash version of the holga camera, batteries, black tape to play with the lightleaks and most of all the best tips on how to use and work with the camera. if you are on a tight budget, yes you can find the bare camera cheaper, if you want to get content, explanation and a hell of a lot of inspiring pictures, this package is a really good price value. it is also the perfect gift for your best friend to finally get started on that medium film photography....

2-0 out of 5 stars Junk or Art?
I've taught photography for a while, and although the Holga is fun, there are better and CHEAPER cameras out there. First off, if you want to buy this as your main camera, look for something else. Holgas are NOT for photographers who demand consistency. Many students buy these to get "cool" effects that look artsy. Although I think it's noble to look for a low tech camera in this age of digital perfection, you can do better and be more creative with other cameras. For the cult photographer seeking good old fashioned Dark Room Magic you should try the following before plunking down real money for something as sketchy as a Holga:
Get Eric Renner's excellent book on pinhole photography.
Build a simple pinhole camera out of something you have around the house. Chances are it will make images better and cooler that the Holga.
Seek out a local Photo Swap meet and buy an old roll film camera in working condition. Get one with a German lens, if possible.
Not only will you learn about "Retro" photography from the old timers, you'll get a real camera. I've gotten roll film folders with german lenses for 5 bucks!
Hit a local resale shop and see what kind of cheap cameras they have.
Ask a family member if they have any old cameras lying around.

For what you pay for a Holga, which will probably break in 6 months, you can buy 3 real cameras that give equally atisitc effects. Oh, and shoot in black & white!

3-0 out of 5 stars Is it worth the price?
I got this camera for my wife for her birthday and she couldn't wait to use it. She took it out of the box and stared in dismay at the yards of black tape, the cheap plastic casing, the pages of directions (including one that said to cram a piece of cardboard into the body of the camera to keep the film from slipping). While I really like the idea of Lomo offering a bunch of odd, hip, unique cameras to the photo-taking public, the Holga just kind of seems like a piece of junk. Granted, the packaging is cool and all and we haven't yet gotten the photos back from development. Time will tell if this is a 4-star camera that needs a little patience or a 2-star camera that is overpriced and over-praised.

1-0 out of 5 stars WAY OVER PRICED !
Holga's are great cameras, but if you look around on the net or at a photo store you can find these plastic cameras for twenty to twenty five bones. The price for this "Lomographic" Holga Starter Kit is way over priced....sure the packaging is a little nicer, but come on! Don't get suckered into this. Look around a little and you'll save big.

5-0 out of 5 stars one of my favorite toys
i first heard about holgas about a year ago. i'm a photo student and really like unusual cameras. i ended up ordering a woca which is made by the same company and is basically the same camera but with a glass lens instead of the plastic lens on the holga. i like my woca so much that i'm thinking about ordering a holga as well. i've heard that sometimes the plastic lens distorts the image in interesting ways, something that the glass on the woca doesn't do as much. the glass lens actually is quite crisp when the focusing is just right, did you hear that you have to guess on the focusing? thats part of the fun though. either way these cameras are fantastic and both yield interesting results. but if you like perfection and consistancy in you photos don't get one of these, no wait, get one of these. it will change you for the better. and by the way, get one with a flash, these flashes are brighter than the sun. they are fun for flashing your friends and disorienting them for a good thirty seconds. (if you are a kid reading this, only flash your friends when your parents aren't around or you will probably loose your holga) plus the flash is essential if you are going to use this camera indoors, otherwise you will get thin negatives. enjoy. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars AWEFUL CAMERA!!!!
this camera was great the first couple days and then the flash went. does not work. called canon and they wanted to fix it but I had to pay for the camera to be shipped there and shipped back, because I had just bought they were willing to look at it but not guarantee that it was not going to cost anything to fix this awful camera. this was the second and last canon product I buy. the A80 is just as bad!! the flash does not read and canon told me that it was a problem they were having w/ alot of there digital cameras. STAY AWAY from this brand!!!!!! customer service is rotten to the core very non helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars love it
i received this camera as a gift and love it. i'm a casual picture taker and i find that the quality of the pictures is very good overall. it's easy to use.

1-0 out of 5 stars Rip-off! Canon knew there was problem, sold cameras anyway
If you look up "canon" and "flashing h" in a search engine, you'll see what you'll get if you buy this camera. Canon knew there was a problem and put the cameras on the market anyway. Huge rip-off and a waste of my $90. I WILL NEVER BUY A CANON PRODUCT AGAIN.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not very impressed
After reading the reviews on this site for this camera it sounded like the perfect camera to give my friend as a gift. She has been loving using my expensive SLR camera and I was hoping that if she had a nice camera she would be able to take photos that were of a great quality like mine. Well I purchased this Cannon Sure Shot and the first reason we didn't like it was that the flash took forever to take a photo. The time from when you pushed the button to when it finially finished the photo was to long for taking pictures of kids. The second thing we didn't like was that the viewfinder was so small. It made it really difficult to take accurate photos at night. I would just have to hope that I got everyone in the photo. This might just be because we are spoiled with my SLR camera but I ended up returning the Canon Sure Shot. I am now going to try another point and shoot camera and hope I have better luck. I wouldn't recommend the Cannon Sure Shot camera to anyone who wants to take photos of kids or anything else where the moment would pass you by in a couple of seconds because with this camera you won't be able to capture that moment on film.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Photo Quality!
I received the Canon Sure Shot, a few weeks ago, as a wedding gift. I am completely impressed with the quality of the pictures. The colors are noticeably more crisp & clear than the photos I take with my Olympus Stylus camera, and costed about the same price. My Olympus Epic Stylus is a little bit smaller & lighter & has a weather resistant cover. However, the Canon is plenty small & light compared to other cameras.... and the output is so much nicer, that I plan to use this as my main camera (I'll save the ultralight, weather-resistant Olympus for hiking or backpacking). I have to give this a 5... a great buy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great depending on what you're using it for
Sure, the picture quality isn't nearly as good as a 35mm. Sure, the film is expensive and you only get ten exposures.

However, it's an INSTANT CAMERA. They're not known for their superior picture clarity and amazing color. If that's what you're looking for, then don't buy this camera.

I don't know a lot about cameras. I don't know anything about Polaroid and the technology behind the Polaroid One, but I can tell you that I am 100% pleased with this camera as it fits my needs perfectly. I'm using it to take a photograph every day of my 15 month old son to send to my husband who is doing a year long tour in Iraq.

The camera is uncomplicated, relatively compact, and the film loads easily. The picture quality is better than what I remember from my childhood in the 70s, but not much. (Again, I'm not complaining. I expected this. The purpose for stating that is so others will not expect too much.)

If you're buying it for a specific purpose and not to be your primary camera, then you'll be 110% satisfied. I am.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Polaroids
I've used Polaroid cameras off and on since the Swinger came out in the 60's. I've had the SX-70 and the One Step. The Polaroid One is by far the easiest to use. The LCD film counter on the back is easy to read and the pictures are clear. The camera takes type 660 film or even takes type 779 professional film for better colors and better clarity. The camera is solidly built, fits into your hand comfortably and is easy to carry thanks to a two position hand strap. Polaroids have always been fun cameras. This one is no exception.

2-0 out of 5 stars not so great
If you're in the perfect lighting this camera takes good pictures but most of the pictures I've taken are very blury or the colors are way off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Choice!
Polaroids generally are a little awkward to handle, but this one is a very good basic model with very easy-to-use and fundamental features (red-eye reduction, timer). It handles light in a straightforward fashion, but can also be sensitive and manipulated for nice effect. Also, I dropped it on the floor and it kept working - you can't ask for more than that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera! Worth Every Penny!!!!
Well when I first bought this camera I was a bit skeptical. I've never owned any thing similar to this. I must admit, the commercial caught my attention so much I just HAD TO GET IT!!! And I'm happy I did. I bit heavy, but I guess all of the similar ones are too. Very easy to use, although I didn't know it came without film which I purchased seperately at the store. It uses polaroid 600 film. The film is very easy to load. The picture quality is amazing. Extremely clear and good pictures. The cool thing about this camera is that it automatically turns on with flash, which you can take it off, it has a self timer so you can also be in any picture. It has a handy carrying strap. Although, if the camera case is available, I think you're better off. Hope this helps! Take care. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Canon Elan 7 uses seven focusing points, arranged in a wide cross pattern with a central "cross-type" sensor. The wider-than-usual area gives the photographer the ability to achieve a remarkably sharp, focused image instantly. This function works whether the subject is off-center, stationary, in motion, in low light, or even in low-contrast situations. The shot will still come out sharp and crisp, and without the need to recompose the shot. By using the focusing-point selection keys, the user is able to select any of the seven focus points simply by pressing a key. Representing a bold innovation in speed and usability, this feature gives an additional amount of image control back to the photographer.

A highly advanced metering system, comprised of 35-zone evaluative metering sensors, is linked to the seven focusing points. Whether shooting indoors or outside, day or night, a seamless integration of exposure and focus ensures remarkable clarity and contrast in any image. This system gives the photographer accurate control over situations that combine light and shadow or that feature strong backlight. When metering subjects against very dark or very bright backgrounds, partial-area metering measures 10 percent of the viewfinder around the chosen focusing point. This provides accurate image results when dealing with shadows or highlights. The photographer can also use the Elan 7's center-weighed metering function. This mode places greater emphasis on what it reads as the center of the frame by measuring the entire scene. No matter which function the photographer chooses, precision metering is guaranteed--whether the camera is in a vertical or horizontal position.

Giving the photographer even more creative control is the command dial. This allows manual-control light, speed, aperture, and depth of field. Shutter priority lets the photographer choose the shutter speed, while the Elan 7 automatically selects the correct aperture. This function is especially useful when capturing action shots. With aperture priority, the photographer picks the aperture setting while the camera chooses the correct shutter speed. This is helpful when control over the depth of field is essential. It's even possible to check the depth of field using the preview button. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I just love my Elan 7!
After living with a manual focus camera for 20 years, I'd splurged and bought myself the Canon Rebel and a couple lenses. I was happy with it, but it lacked some features I was seeking. Enter the Elan 7. Oh my! Once I learned how to use the multiple frame feature, there was no stopping me! I stopped getting so-so shots of my sons in their soccer games, and was getting at least one spot on perfect out of the two or three. This alone makes the camera worth its price for me, but there are other aspects I like as well.

The camera just feels solid to me. My Rebel was lightweight, but I always worried that came with a price. I use my camera often in an active way, hiking in our bluffs, riding my bike through the wetlands and cross country skiing in the rare years we get enough decent snow cover. The camera can handle these kinds of conditions, and I've always had nice photos come back to me. I also appreciate the very high shutter speeds it affords me. I've nearly stopped the action of hovering hummingbirds with this camera, it's that fast. It's also fairly quiet as SLRs go, another plus for those who need that feature. The rewind is almost silent, which helps when I am stalking birds and my film runs out, as it invariably does.

There were a few little glitches in going from the Rebel to the Elan for me. Although they are both EOS cameras, one can't assume that the Elan is just a more expensive Rebel and will operate as such. For one thing, the film counter system is completely reversed. The Rebel counts down, the Elan counts up.
The benefit to this is that I always get 25 exposures with my Elan, whereas 24 was the max with the Rebel. Yes, film is cheap, but it does add up!

Also, the creative controls work differently. I'd become very used to setting the Rebel to under or over expose, and needed to relearn the way to set that with the Elan. On the plus side, with the Elan, there is a setting that will allow for autobracketing, so that you can achieve the same thing with less thought, once you know that setting.

The kit lens was a nice plus as well. My Rebel had 35mm as its widest angle, and the 28mm allows a little more range for me. I've had my Elan now for three years, and I am still learning to take full advantage of all it has to offer. From a camera junkie, that is high praise indeed.

5-0 out of 5 stars you think your'e a pro, get a camera that makes you look so
I bought the EOS 7 from japan, the original EOS 7, without the elan branding.

THe pictures are amazingly sharp and perfectly light balanced.
I have a matching Tamron 28-200 mm lens for this, as well as a used 50mm fixed focal length canon lens. I find this to be a good balance of lenses.

the 50mm lens allows shooting in extreme low light. imagine taking photos without a tripod or flash, with just room lighting.
The camera is heavy enough not to shake too much when you press the shutter button.

You can safely pass up the eye controlled focus, its a gimmick, your almost never use it.

4-0 out of 5 stars My main camera
I bought this as my first (and as of now, only) auto-focus SLR. I'm generally pleased with the camera: the metering is fine and it's fairly problem free.

I do have one gripe: low-light focusing. Unless you have an attached flash (I use a 550 Speedlite), low-light focusing is a pain. It doesn't come with a built-in infra-red light for such situations and instead, fires the flash like a strobe. Not exactly inconspicuous.

Other than that, a good camera for more experience amatures like myself.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera!
I purchased the Elan 7 about two months ago as a refurbished unit. Unfortunately, the camera had a defective feature button. But the problem was quickly resolved by sending the camera back for a replacement.

Since then, I have shot quite a few rolls of film. I have been impressed with each roll (except the ones I screwed up by not being careful). The metering is fairly accurate- I feel I can trust what it tells me. While in manual focus, however, it only meters the center focusing point, which can be a pain at times. But, the metering is displayed in both the viewfinder and the LCD display, which is quite handy.

The camera is loaded with features- more than I really need. If you need help taking pictures, this camera is for you. It has a setting for almost every circumstance of shooting. I prefer the manual mode, which gives the user complete control.

The included lens is nice. Certainly not the best lens out there, but for starters it works great. The auto-focusing happens instantly, but beware it has a hard time in low light. One bonus is it goes down to 28mm, nice and wide. And you can zoom to 100mm within about a foot of a subject, bringing things really to life on prints. The drawback is it only stops down to f/4.5 at 28mm, f/5.6 at 100mm. It would be nice if it would open up a bit more.

Also, it has an electronic shutter. So, if you're planning on doing astrophotography or very long exposures, plan on bringing extra batteries or shop for a different camera.

So far, I have no standing complaints about this camera. It's built well, is rather light and feels good in my hands. It's quiet, fast, and leaves little to be desired in features. I recommend this camera for anyone who is beyond 'point & shoot' and is looking to take their photography to the next level.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent versitile SLR for amateurs
The Elan 7 is an excellent, high quality SLR camera for amateurs, particularly those who are learning more advanced SLR techniques. One of the things I appreciate the most about the Elan 7 is that it switches easily between manual and automatic modes for those times when the amateur needs to have the reliability of an automatic mode. Also, there is a broad range of Canon lenses available for this body which also switch easily from manual to automatic for such occasions. I've found that I've been able to hand my Elan 7 off to others (who can sometimes barely use an automatic 35mm camera) while traveling and still get excellent photographs. On the other hand, the control offered by this camera in manual mode is unparalleled by other consumer SLR cameras such as the EOS.

The Elan 7 is the best SLR I've owned. While I've not owned an EOS, I have used an EOS. I highly recommend spending the extra money for the Elan 7 for those amateurs who strive to test their abilities with the more advanced manual modes. The EOS, however, may make a better "first" SLR camera for those who are trying SLR photography for the first time. ... Read more


52. Kodak Advantix C750 APS Date Camera

Catlog: Photography
Manufacturer: Kodak
Sales Rank: 1745
Average Customer Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

With its 24-60mm lens (2.5x), the Kodak Advantix C750 camera lets you zoom in for intimate close-ups and back out again for group shots. For those occasions when you can't zoom out far enough, you can switch to panorama mode and capture that sweeping landscape or get the whole group. To ensure that you always know what your image will look like, the C750 uses a real-image viewfinder that works no matter what print format (C, H, or P) you're using. The handy midroll change feature lets you switch film cartridges at any time. This lets you share your camera, but keep your film separate; you can also switch between black-and-white and color film or organize your images by theme.

The C750 flip-up flash sits up far enough from the lens to help reduce the unsightly red-eye effect often caused by flash photography. The C750 automatically adjusts its flash settings, including close-up flash and fill-flash, to give you realistic results under all lighting situations. Even if your main subject is off-center, the wide-area sensor and smart multispot autofocus system detect it and bring the subject into sharp focus. Kodak includes the APS magnetic information exchange system to record the data from each scene. This data is recorded on your film's magnetic strip to help your local photo lab optimize the lighting and color of your prints.

To protect your exposed film, the C750 has a safety interlock film door that won't open until it senses your film is completely wound back in the protective cartridge. This camera also looks after your battery power by turning itself off after 150 second of non-use. You can also include the date and one of 41 messages, in 12 languages, on the back of each print. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Camera for the price
I bought the C750 over the Canon Elf series due to way the camera fits nicely in your hands when taking pictures. I didn't like the Canons square shape when compared to the Kodak.

For the price this is very nice camera. Great features and good quality pictures. I used for the first time on a cruise taken in October and was pleased with the pictures. Two pictures came out poor quality due to humidity fogging up the lens when I took a picture right after going outside from an air conditioned room.

I love the lens cover compared to earlier Kodak APS cameras. Earlier ones locked down with a cheap plastic clip that broke easily. The lens cover on the C750 closes tightly without the cheap clip.

Overall I would recommend this camera due to its features and price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Would not recommend!!!
I bought this camera 2 years ago based on the rave reviews I read here. I really liked the camera and felt that the picture quality was good, it was easy to use and despite a sluggish zoom I felt that overall I got a pretty good camera for the money. Rercently, I was taking pictures and the camera just stopped working. I put in fresh batteries. Still nothing. Bought more batteries thinking the ones I had were duds. The camera still refused to work. I checked the Kodak website for repair info, called the recommended company and was floored to find that the repair cost was going to start at the same price I PAID for the camera. The only way they would be willing to remove the film that was still inside would be if I had it fixed first! I wrote Kodak via email and received as their reply that the camera had only a 1 year warrantee but they were sending me a disposable camera and a coupon ($10) good for another Kodak camera. Had I known that I would be paying over $100 for a camera that would last for only 2 years I would have never purchased it in the first place. Speaking with local repair shops they have advised that the best customer service is with Canon and Olympus. My next camera will be from one of those two. I doubt I will ever consider any Kodak camera in the future.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the extra processing fees
This is by far the best little camera I've owned. After losing my Pentax in a burglary, I searched for a compact, versatile replacement and decided, after reading the reviews, on the Advantix C750. I've taken about 8 rolls of film so far and been delighted with the results. Outdoor shots are perfect and I love being able to decide before each shot whether I need panoramic or "family" sized prints or just "regular" prints. The only photos which haven't been quite up to par are telephoto indoor pictures in less than great lighting ... these turned out somewhat grainy but I'm being very picky here. The compact sizing encourages me to carry the camera wherever I go. Even though the film and processing are a little more than with regular cameras, I am so pleased with the APS results that I still think it's a bargain. Although there are a great many "menu" features available, such as deciding right before the shot how many prints you will want of it, and adding a title right then and there, for most people the simplicity of use is what will appeal. It's pretty much idiot-proof, especially as the film winds itself on and off - no slipping possible. I highly recommend this camera for every day use.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera!
I bought this camera as a back-up to my Pentax 35mm point & shoot camera. A friend has the older version, the C700, and I had seen the beautiful pictures from it. Kodak had a rebate going and that sealed it. It feels great in the hand, all options are easy to set, and best of all the pictures are gorgeous! I took pictures indoors, at the beach in bright light, in dark restaurants, and all looked sharp, color vivid. I had heard that the APS film isn't as great, the negative is smaller, etc. but I think this camera produces pictures just as nice as my other p&s and my big Minolta slr. The flip flash that turns into a cover for the lens is a nice feature also. Only drawback is the APS film is more expensive to buy and develop. That is countered by the fact the negatives are stored in the canister and a thumbprint index card comes back with the developed pictures. If you are looking for an inexpensive camera with great shape and size, takes sharp pictures this is the one for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars THE VERY BEST!
I am not a camera expert, but I am a 'perfect picture' fanatic...and this camera leaves me complaint-free. I traveled to Cancun in April and the Bahamas in May, and my pictures captured the weather, water..and scenery so well that I was the envy of the office. I couldn't believe it! You could see every ripple in the pool and the exact color of the ocean and sky (which I thought wouldn't be captured). Crisp doesn't even begin to describe how my pics turned out. While in the Bahamas we took a professional family portrait, then took some shots on my camera for the heck of it. Had I been able to see (beforehand) how my pics would have turned out I NEVER would have paid for a professioanl portrait. They looked EXACTLY the same!! Right now one of my co-workers is a little upset with me because he took my pics home to scan them and upon seeing them his wife threw a tantrum, and demanded a vacation.... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera for Everyone!
I bought this camera in the summer of 2003 which was when I started my photography endeavor. This camera has been awesome for everything that I have done from practice portraiture, landscape, close up, and everything that I was able to thow at it. I still constantly use this camera as it still continues to intrigue me with its abilities.

Many, and I say MANY people complain online about the lense that is given in the kit. For the work that I have done, and the work that most amature to "prosumer" photographers do, you will not be so extremely dissapointed about this lense. I do have the EF 50mm f/1.8, which is awesome!

The Rebel GII is also extremely light to carry around, especially when compared to older manual type SLR's. Sure, its not as light as a point and shoot but its NOT a point and shoot, its a great SLR. As I advance more in Photography, by December 2004 I'll be buying the Elan 7Ne to meet all of my photo needs. Due to the weight though, the Rebel will be my more rugged body for those shoots that I don't want to risk ruining the Elan. Great camera overall, go buy it!

I just got my camera for Christmas and I love it. The quality is great, and it's so lightweight! Gotta have it if you're into photography...great starter camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent Entry Level Camera
My personal background: I've owned several Point & Shoot cameras, both digital and film, as well as an old SLR back when I was in high school. I'm a decent photographer and since I bought this camera in late August (now early November) I've shot probably around 400+ frames.

If you want to shoot in manual mode, this camera works wonderfully. The only downsides I've found is a tendency to under expose by about 1/3 stop and the 1 fps maximum. If you don't need high speed photography and can learn to compensate for the exposure (or take your film to a lab that does) there isn't a reason to buy any other Rebel.

If you use the various auto modes (landscape, portrait, etc.) you'll find the camera works pretty well. Using these modes I can hand the camera over to a family member and expect the photo to come out reasonably well.

The only serious downfall to this kit is the lens. It is about as crummy as lenses come. The photos look fine at 4x6, but if you blow them up, you'll notice they aren't very sharp. The good news is that when your skill develop enough that you realize this, you can go out and buy that nice 24-85mm zoom and 50mm prime and they'll work wonderfully. Expensive bodies are for people with money burning wholes in their pocket. This one is for you. :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use! Excellent Pictures
I purchased this camera based on reviews from several different scrapbooking message boards. Scrapbookers know their cameras as their hobby is all about GREAT pictures. I have an old Canon AE-1 Program that I purchased 18 years ago and I am a big fan of digital camera. I have an Olympus C-50.

The Canon Rebel takes awesome shots. I took it to Disney World and did not take one bad shot. I used Kodak High Density film. The camera is so easy to use. The telephoto feature worked really well. In the auto mode it works like a point and shoot, but the pictures cannot be compared to a regular point and shoot camera. I am not the best photographer in the world, but this makes me look like I am. You won't be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners, but product specs are wrong...
I recently purchased the Rebel G II and have found it to be a great camera for a beginner who wishes to move beyond simple point and click cameras. Amazon.com has recently dropped the price (May, 2003) to put it in a more comparable range with other sellers of the same camera, but I noticed that the spec sheet has some wrong information. For example, this camera DOES have a self-timer whereas the amazon.com specifications page states it does not. I can attest, the self-timer works well, I have used it many times already since I bought the Rebel G II. Also, the specs page says you can't imprint the date & time on pictures, but you can. It's all explained in the user's manual when you buy the camera. Go to the Canon Homepage and see for yourself if you don't believe me. Don't let the wrong information by amazon.com scare you away from this camera. It has alot of automatic settings (action shots, portraits, close-ups, landscapes) for beginners to use, and it has the capabilities for advanced photographers to use shutter speed, aperture and manual settings to control their shots. The pictures are looking great (I've shot athletes in full sprint and got great looking shots and done hiking and gotten beautiful close-ups of birds/flowers as well as wide landscapes). This camera takes great shots, is easy to use and is a great 1st step for a beginning photographer. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but......
I've used Nikon equipment for well over 20 years and this is my fourth Nikon body. It's also my first Nikon auto focus/auto exposure body.

Frankly, the only reason that I bought this camera is my deteriorating middle-aged eyesight. Focusing with my FM series bodies has become dfficult in all but the brightest situations.

The features that this camera offers are excellent. The auto focus works well enough although it hunts in situations where the lighting isn't optimal. Like many owners, I've turned off the annoying auto focus aid light so I really can't complain much.

By the way, the weakest auto focus performance is with the very lenses that Nikon pushes with this model....the variable aperture zooms. I have no difficulty with my primes but with my 28-105 zoom the N80 hunts for focus quite a bit.

Speaking of lenses. Don't fall into the trap of getting an N80 as a "kit" with the Nikkor 28-80 zoom (or, worse yet, some other brand). Not that the Nikkor 28-80 is all that bad, but if you're serious enough about photography to want the N80 you're probably better off putting the money towards a better piece of glass.

I won't suggest getting the "pro" Nikkor zooms. They cost a fortune and weigh a ton. However, you won't go wrong with either the 28-105 or the new 28-85 AF-S.

My favorite lenses (and the reason why I've used Nikons for all these years) are the primes. Put together a kit consisting of the 24mm 2.8, 50mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.8 and you'll be ready for most anything. If you need something longer, there are a load of options from primes to the really great (and expensive) Nikkor 80-200 zoom.

The exposure modes are versatile and metering is as accurate as you can get short of spending [...]on an F5. In other words, more than sufficient for all but the most demanding user.

The rinky-dink onboard flash works better than it has any right to. Very accurate as a fill flash. As with all on-camera flashes, one risks red eye. Still, for a built-in, it's a pleasant surprise.

I have to take exception with Nikon for printing a manual that's mostly gibberish. No worse than its competition I suppose but can't they explain the auto-focus options in less than a million words? I figured it all out...no thanks to the manual.

Maybe I'm old fashioned about these things, but why are today's SLR's so complicated? Who really needs all these different modes and overides and compensations and.......well you get the idea.

Although I knew this when I bought the N80, I'm very disappointed in not being able to meter with any of my Nikkor manual focus lenses. Would it really have brought the price up that much to add such a feature? Like many Nikon users, I have/had a collection of older lenses that I'd like to be able to use. I've sold quite a few and replaced them with AF models but it's like having ones pocket picked.

Many have complained about the polycarbonate bodies of todays cameras and the poor construction of the lenses. Having cut my teeth on metal cameras, I really have no complaint about the build quality of the N80. I can't imagine anyone but a pro actually wearing one out. [...]

Handling is excellent (as I've come to expect from Nikon) and battery life is pretty good as well. I'm not a big flash user
so YMMV.

The bottom line is that I'm pretty much satisfied with all aspects of this camera. I just wish that Nikon had taken its existing customer base into account and designed the camera to meter with the AI and AIS lenses. I guess that customer loyalty means very little to companies these days.

EDITED: Sorry to say I just sold this camera and the 28-105 Nikkor zoom lens. They simply don't suit my style of photography. Having to re-set several controls and check the cheat sheet each time I want to make a small adjustment is just ridiculous....at least for me.

I just bought a used Leica M6 and 50mm Summicron that are much simpler to use and give me better results under most conditions. These old eyes of mine love the bright viewfinder and I'm getting perfect focusing under much dimmer lighting than I ever could with an SLR.

Nothing against the N80 (I'm keeping my other Nikon gear) but it's just not for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect camera for the serious amateur
Photography has been a hobby of mine for nearly ten years now. Having shot on a lot of Minolta and Canon I can say that Nikon equipment is sufficiently superior to its competition unless you are in need of fast auto focus (i.e. for sports) where Canon tends to rule. However, in nearly every other arena in the 35mm SLR world Nikon is at the top of the list. From build and lens quality, to controls and light meters Nikon beats out the competition. So if you are already sold on buying a Nikon (which you should be) the N80 is a great pick for the serious amateur or beginner, but probably a little bit too high on the food chain for the casual photographer.

The N80 fits nicely between the N55, N65, N75 cameras and the F100, F1 cameras. The F100 and F1 (as well as the D100 and D1) are geared for the professional photographer and provide quality and features only an experienced amateur or pro could notice. Those cameras are definitely not appropriate as first cameras unless you are serious and just have money to burn. The N55 and N65 are geared toward the casual consumer that wants more quality than a point and shoot offers, but likely doesn't really know or care much about photography. These cameras provide "easy" to use features including some that are simply annoying for the serious photographer. The N80 operates in a very similar manner to the F100, F1, D100 and D1 and it makes the transition to these cameras down the road much easier when the time is right. The N80 also provides 10 segment metering, selectable auto focus regions, composition guides (awesome!) and it opens up features of the more advanced Nikon lenses. Overall the N80's build quality feels better than its smaller counter parts as well.

Who is this camera for:

The serious amateur and student photographer, especially those wishing to move up in the Nikon line in the future.

Also, make sure you get a great lens too, I'd highly recommend the Nikon 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S Zoom as a first lens.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nikon N80 all the camera most people need...
In the world of traditional film SLRs most amature photographers either underbuy or more likely overbuy. The N80 as Goldylocks once said is just right! The sophisticated features and performance will please all but the working professional photog. The simplicicty of design and ease of use make it a perfect SLR for those who seek an upgrade to point and shoot. The vast array of Nikon and and other lens makers offerings for this body make it enormously attractive as skills and or needs expand. Should the point come that the N80 owner sees value in moving to a semi-pro F100 or a full pro F5 the lens that have been bought will make the transition happily. All a point to be made for those who see a digital SLR in their future. The Nikon AF lenses fully apply to the well reviewed D100, D1x, and newest D1H.
As a performer the camera is a gem. The focusing and metering systems are very effective and well exceed the performance of pro cameras made just whithin the last few years. Auto focus is fast and well aided by the built in low light feature. The built in speedlight works very effectively for most indoor applications and reasonably well as an outdoor fill light.
All considered there are few offerings in the market today that will please the user as well as the N80.

4-0 out of 5 stars very very good..........
I was using a minolta X300, and decided it was time for an upgrade, after trying out some camera's in the shop, i decided on the Nikon N80...now i have only ran 3 films through it but am finding the autofocus a little tedious, once focused on something i only have to move it slightly and it focuses on something else in the viewfinder, although it does have another focus mode as yet untried and autofocus lock which i havn't tried out yet, if this fails then i will be shooting in manual focus mode. The other gripe i have with it is some of the controls are small and difficult to use, and virtually impossible with gloves on. i am using Tamron lenses with the body and am getting very sharp pictures.
The autofilm loading is a blessing compared to doing it myself and autorewind which is really fast, because of the autofilm advance i am finding i am using film really quickly, and thats without the autowinder at 2.5 frames per second, i just don't realise how many pictures i am taking as it winds on automatically.
I guess to sum this body up i would say if you are looking for an autofocus camera with a few bells and whistles to play with, then this is a very good choice, i am an amateur with NO experience with autofocus, so i have a lot to learn as yet, but am very happy with my choice and looking forward to finding out all it has to offer, bear in mind i have just come from a camera with which i had to do everything myself and i think i'm just a little confused at all the automated features now available to me

1-0 out of 5 stars not worth it
interesting - there used to be at least a dozen reviews of this camera on this site, but they seem to have been removed.

I bought this camera, found it too complicated and difficult to use, with tiny controls that were very inconvenient and hard to maneuver. I constantly had to have the instruction booklet with me. I ended up trading the N80 to a camera shop for a very good lens.

Maybe some people think that autofocus is worth the trouble, but I didn't.

Here's the main point. Nikon cameras are wonderful because the lenses are so good. I think new photographers make a very big mistake if they spend a lot of money on a Nikon camera body, and then buy a cheap lens to go with it.

My recommendation is this: Buy the cheapest Nikon camera body you can find, and then save your money for the best lenses. It's the lens that's capturing the image, not the body ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for land and water
We took this little guy to Maui and planned to use it for snorkeling. We ended up renting an underwater camera later in the week so we didn't get many water photos with the disposable. But the pictures we took turned out pretty good including the land photos.

5-0 out of 5 stars great pictures both in and out of the water
This is a great little camera for taking pictures both in and out of the water. Not surprisingly, it delivers best underwater on a sunny day, but even on overcast days, it produces crisp pictures with great detail.

On land, it is much less particular about lighting, and produces pictures with beautiful colour in light or shadow, or both.

Since it takes such nice pictures out of the water, a first time user might want to practice with it on land. The lever action feels a lot different from the push-button action of regular throw-away cameras, and since you don't hear the click of the shutter underwater, you might be uncertain whether anything happened. A couple of test shots (without the urgency of a sea turtle swimming by or a beautiful school of fish) should increase the photographer's confidence in the camera when underwater.

The big wheel that advances the film works very well; it's easy to find by touch, so getting another snap of something before it swims away isn't difficult.

There's also a little strap to keep it on your wrist, although it's a good idea to keep a firm hold on the camera anyway while swimming.

The simple operation made it a hit with the kids; they were able to make their own special souvenirs of the underwater world.

Excellent value.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sensational little disposable -- BUY IT!
It's just about the only camera I needed for a vacation to Maui. I hauled along my digital camera, my "real" 35mm camera and a handful of dry-land disposables, and this underwater camera KICKED BUTT as far as quality of shots, quality of hardware, ease of use and general cool/fun vortex rating, plus, it's almost indestructible and weighs next to nothing!

YES the prints are a bit "dark" when printed without correction -- so CORRECT them! This is a Fuji-Kodak thing, I think, so ASK your processor to print them a bit lighter. The colors are outrageously rich, even the deeper-underwater shots have very good colors throughout. You have GOT to have one of these on your wrist while you snorkel!

Really an excellent little product - the next time I need a dry-land disposable, I'm going to give Fuji a try based on how great this underwater Fuji was to use!

1-0 out of 5 stars fuzzy pictures
I have to say right up front this camera takes fuzzy pictures! we cannot figure out why! If we eliminate using the zoom that reduces the fuzzy pictures but we still get 2 or 3 in the roll. I recently took a picture of my daughter smiling for the first time and was so excited about gettting the film developed. Of course, there were 2 pictures fuzzy and one was the pic of my daughter smiling. I was mortified. I do not recommend this camera at all and am shopping for a new one. I did look up on the internet and not often but i did find another person with the same problem. I would have taken the camera back but it did not start this problem until 4 or 5 months into use!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good, Economical Camera
If you still want a film camera and don't want to break the bank, this camera is a perfect candidate. Probably the best feature of this Nikon camera that even Nikon's literature won't tell you is the design. No I'm not talking about the way it looks, but rather where things are located. For once a camera maker has located the flash in correct proximity to the lense! Compare this camera to the others when you are in the store (or even online for that matter). The flash is located farther away from the lense than on pretty much all the other makes and models I've looked at. Why is this important you ask? This is one of the few cameras I tried in my quest for a new camera that did not produce garish red-eye. I didn't even need to use the mostly gimmicky red-eye reducing feature to get good pictures. I maybe get one picture per roll that exibits noticeable red-eye... and my house has poor lighting to boot. If the flash on a camera is located far enough away from the lense you don't have the red-eye problem so prevalent in the increasingly tiny cameras you see nowadays. Kudos Nikon! You got it right! Watch... they'll discontinue this design next week or something. Also, the majority of pictures I took were very clear, exhibiting as much, and in some photos, more detail than some of the more expensive, feature laden cameras I tried. I tried Pentax, Olympus, and Canon's new U line. The only issue I have with this camera is the shutter speed (1/200th of a second). If your subject moves quickly, which kids often do... expect some blurred photos. But all the portrait-type shots I took, where the subject was still, were very clear and detailed. Photos taken between 4 to 8 feet were excellent. Photos taken further away or using the zoom extended to max are good, but I wouldn't say excellent, they do appear a little grainy and sometimes out of focus, but I noticed graininess when using the zoom on ALL the little point-n-shoots I tried. Also when using this camera, there is a little circle in the viewfinder used to lock the focus on the subject. This is very accurate, or shall I say touchy, because you need to place the circle EXACTLY on what you want to be in focus. If you place the circle on the subject's shirt, the shirt may be crystal clear, but the person's face a tad out of focus. This is a perfect camera for taking head-n-shoulder group or individual portrait shots. For the price you pay for this, it takes very capable pictures and you don't have to stress about red-eye, mainly because it is built right. I would give this camera 4 stars because of the slower shutter speed, but because it's one of the few cameras I've come across where the lense and flash are laid out correctly, combined with the value pricing, I give it 5 stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Kevin
This camera is a great buy. The timer function is great for when you want everyone in the picture and there is no stranger around to take it. I have taken many family pictures this way. All pictures seem to turn out great despite our lack of photography knowledge. I liked ours so much, I bought one for my mom and she finally gave up her disposable camera addiction. The result is that she too gets great pictures. Some cameras have too many bells and whistles and some not enough...this one is just right.

1-0 out of 5 stars Viewfinder Not Worth a Second Look
I purchased this product online without a test drive. My bad!! The viewfinder is in an awkward location and causes painful eye strain when shooting multiple times. Picture quality is poor. I am shopping for a replacement.....

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the description
I bought this camera on line relying on the description which stated that the battery was included. I had some events which I wanted to take pictures of immediately and felt that having the battery included would allow me to take immediate pictures, and also felt that not having to buy a new battery (or two) would increase the value of this purchase. When I received the camera it did not have a battery, I did report it to the customer service but its been two weeks with no satisfaction. It seems like a good camera, but I'm returning it as "missing a part." ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Camera
If you are looking for an easy-to-use point and shoot camera this is a great one. I wanted a separate camera for my color pictures (I have my manuals for black and white) and this was the best value for the money. The LCD screen is easy to read and you can quickly switch functions (flash, date, focus) and the zoom lens was surprisingly sharp for such a small camera.
The camera loads very easily but the best feature so far has been the different timer options -- you can take 1,2,or 3 pictures in a row OR you can use the remote and point it directly at the camera after positioning yourself.
The only drawback is the viewfinder which is smaller than other cameras I have owned (Nikon/Pentax) but your eye will get used to it. I also recommend checking on ebay for this camera since you can get it new on a sharp discount.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little camera
I bought this little camera to replace a very old Cannon SureShot. I love this camera! It is sooo easy to use, very small and compact. I love the display on the back, everyone thinks it is digital. Takes pretty good pictures. Very good outdoor pictures, but indoor pictures were too dark and I had flash on, so I will work on that problem to see what I did wrong. I am an amature and I like easy point and shoot cameras that can fit in my pocket. But I highly recommend this camera. This was my first Fuji and I'm very pleased.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT camera in small package!
This replaces an old Fuji Zoom I had purchased 6 years ago. The 1300 is 2/3's the size & weight of my old one. VERY compact; large LCD screen to tell you what your controls are set at; controls easy to use; Zoom really ZOOMS up close; pictures great like all the Fuji cameras I've owned. The menu select button is very easy to use - it works like a mouse pointer on a laptop. Menu items easy to select -- just two basic steps to remember.

Drawbacks for me are: viewfinder is on the small side & I worry about scratching the LCD screen (which has no protection on it). Definitely glad I made this purchase however! And try Ebay for good prices -- I got my brand new 1300 for [$$$]including S&H!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Fuji Camera I've Ever Owned
Fujifilm Zoom Date 1300 is one of the best compact camera I have ever owned. I've owned Fuji's other previous 35mm compact cameras such as the DL-90 and the 312 Zoom. The 1300 model is very compact and easy to use. It's so small that just by looking at it you'd guess it's an APS because of the small size. It has a large LCD screen on the back cover that shows you the functions. The Zoom lever is easy to control. The one aspect of this camera is that unlike the previous Fuji cameras that I've owned, the film counter starts at 1 and goes on up to the last frame. In the past, you'd simply drop in your film, close the cover and the film would roll up to the highest number of exposure and count down ex. 24, 23....1. This time it's the opposite way around. Overall, it is easy to use, light weight, and very small for it's size considering it uses a 35mm film. It's a great buy and you won't be disappointed. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars So much fun to use!

Before using this camera, I pictured myself madly fiddling with a bunch of buttons after taking each photo. This just wasn't the case - it took virtually no time to preview each print and make the choices for it. Granted, it's a very small color screen, so you can't judge details or sharpness of the photo. But you can judge the angle and overall effect of the photo you just took. You can then choose, in a matter of seconds, what size you'd prefer it to be and how many prints you'd like developed (0-9).

This camera is a great size, large enough to be comfortable in your hand. I like that the lens cover is hard, attractive and opens with ease. I'd never used APS before, and I love being able to drop in the film and go. The camera takes two batteries, which load quickly.

I had read about the difficulty of finding a developer to process this film correctly. The top two online developers will not process the number of prints you choose when you expose the film. The head of the film processing at our local [store] had never developed preview film, but he was eager to try it out. Sure enough, he printed the number of prints we wanted and the sizes we chose.

I will be carrying this camera on our trip to Scotland, mainly for the preview function. I'll never have to order reprints again - choosing negatives, filling out forms. And no wasted prints! My favorite feature is the ability to print the date and time on the back of each photo. There will be no need to keep a film log as we go.

I have withheld one star from the rating because of the actual picture quality. Though the pictures have great color, those taken with the flash are a bit too harsh. The quality just isn't as clean and professional as those taken with my Olympus Stylus Epic 80. But the preview feature is so convenient and easy to use that I am willing to lose a slight bit of quality. For those who are not willing, I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of this technology.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Non-Digital Bang for the Buck
I've owned this gem for about six months and taken a few hundred pictures with it since then. I'm glad I bought it. Here's the scoop.

Pro:
1. It allows you to take 4 x 6, 4 x 7, or 4 x 11.5 sized pictures with a touch of a button. Even more impressively, though, you can CHANGE THE PRINT SIZE after you've already taken the picture! So, you take it in one format, examine it through the large display on back, and then can accept that format, change it to a different format, or delete the picture. It's a great feature when you're out shooting scenes or landscapes, and you want to compare how the picture will look in each style.

2. With the right film (400 and above), this camera has taken solid pictures for me. I've had several folks tell me the quality is professional looking. This was one reason why I chose this camera over a digital camera -- the picture sharpness. For those of you considering digital cameras, remember that all but the most advanced of them won't have the tight pixelization of this cheaper APS camera.

3. The battery is long lasting. I'm on my 400th picture or so and the battery is going strong.

4. This camera uses drop and shoot APS film. APS film, unlike 35 MM, allows for the digitization of your pictures direct from your local processor. I've developed every roll with print pictures and a CD-ROM. I can keep the pictures in an album and e-mail some images from the CD to friends and family far away. The Kodak software (Free with the cd) allows you to manipulate the images, make desktop pictures, and other fun stuff. Also, APS processing gets you a neat one-page sheet with the negatives numbered and shown in miniature in case you want to order reprints.

5. The LCD preview, obviously, makes this camera stand out. It's a clear picture (mostly -- see below), and it is 100% accurate in predicting the size and clarity of the final photo.

6. Advanced features -- the camera has some advanced flash features (low light, portrait mode, etc.) that prove useful in some circumstances. More impressive, though, is that the camera has an auto-flash mode that 'knows' when to use the special features.

Neutral
1. The zoom lens isn't as powerful as some other APS cameras, but it does its job. Basically, it allows me to get slighly closer than my eye can see, but you're not going to see a basketball player's eyes if you're shooting from the upper level of the arena. For that, you'd need at 35MM camera with a zoom lens. But, if you're using this camera for ordinary landscapes and close-ups, the lack of a strong telescopic lens doesn't make much of a difference.

Cons:
1. The flash is rather weak, and if you're doing a lot of nightime photography, even with fast film, you'd want to get a 35 MM camera that can accomodate a wider range of flashes and lenses. I've had several good scenes not turn out so well, because I overestimated the reach of the flash.

2. The LCD screen is great with photos in daylight or dusk, but does less well with photos in the dark. I've had a few photos look completely blacked out on the screen but then actually come out looking *okay* when they came back from the lab. But, unless a whole bunch of your photos are taken at night, this shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Overall:
For what you're paying, you're getting a great APS camera with some digital features that takes great pictures, allows you to correct your mistakes, and preview your work. Unless you're a professional photographer, it's hard to beat. I'd definitely buy mine again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Camera I Have Owned!
I purchased this particular camera July 2003. Thus far I have taken 7 rolls of film with this camera. First off I found loading the film to be the easiest I have encountered. You just drop the film in, shut the door and the film sets itself. All of the features in this camera allows the photographer to take GREAT pictures. Every picture I took, using this camera, looked as though a professional had taken them. To get familiar with all of the features I purposely took pictures that utilized each feature. Again every picture came out GREAT! Close ups of people did not have the red-eye due to the Flip Flash feature. Photos I took of objects far away seemed a lot closer due to the Infinity feature. Photos I took at night looked as though they were taken in the day light due to the Night View feature. The 3 picture sizes also produced fabulous pictures. The Preview screen, on the back of the camera, came in handy for viewing the picture right away to make sure I got the shot I was after. I also like that I can set the date, time and event to print on the photo. I love this camera so much that I am trying to find one for several members of my family.

5-0 out of 5 stars What I've Been Looking For!
I absolutely love this camera! I was considering a digital camera but wasn't impressed with the clarity of the pictures, and yet I really wanted to send pictures to family via e-mail. This camera gives me the best of both worlds and for a lot less money!
My husband and I have three children and I also am a licensed day care provider and I take a LOT of pictures on a weekly basis. Two of my day care parents are already considering buying this camera after seeing the pictures it takes, and how easy it is to handle.
Being able to see the picture after you take it is wonderful! If someone steps in front of you, you can tell right away and don't have to waste money getting a picture developed you know you don't want. On the other hand, the pictures that you see that you know Grandma and Grandpa are going to want a copy of, you order a few extras of just that picture!
I also do a lot of scrapbooking, and this camera is a life saver! When I have all three boys in a picture, I can get three of just that one for each of their scrap books.
I have gone through four rolls of film with this camera, and I haven't had one picture that had even a hint of red eye in it. I just can't say enough about this camera! I absolutely love it! I was crushed when my other camera "died" on me and I had to get a different one. I've gotten over it! ... Read more
