Ali, Wilts Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great all-purpose point & click camera. Limited, but good quality zoom. Great features for the beginner or leisure photographer. We bought this for an under-10 who with an eye for photography - does all he wants and more giving him an opportunity to experiment.

Ideal first or casual camera.
Bad points:
Limited features for more advanced photographers.

David, St Albans Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I wanted a small robust camera with decent picture quality for use when backpacking. This one does the biz - it's been wet, freezing, dropped, baked in sunshine, dropped again, muddy, and always worked. Quite quick to get started and reasonable speed of zoom.

Christine, Enniskillen Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Used by an eight year old. This camera is robust, good-looking and easy to use. The image quality is superb, comparable to the fuji F10 and much better than the new Fuji.
Bad points:
Not necessarily bad, but no video function.

It's great value for the price. Looks swish enough in stylish blue and takes great photos. I wanted something really easy to use and this is it! Range of features is great, especially given the budget price!

Let us do all the hard work

Fujifilms Scene Recognition Auto (SR AUTO) technology makes it easy to take good pictures. It intelligently detects a scene without the need to pre-select a mode on the camera. Having identified the most commonly photographed subjects, Fujifilm has developed technology to automatically recognise different scenes; Portrait, Backlit Portrait, Night Portrait, Landscape, Night and Macro. Just point at the scene and let the camera adjust the settings to optimise the results. Easy!

Detects the faces quickly in the frame and optimises focus, brightness and white balance.

LandscapeLandscape logoLandscape

Scenic shots such as mountains and buildings are automatically recognised. Colours of the sky, forests, and flower fields are captured in vivid colors and depth.

Night logoNight

For low-light and night-time shots, shutter speed and sensitivity are automatically adjusted, producing blur-free pictures with minimal noise.

When your subject is very close to the camera, it adjusts the settings automatically to produce high-resolution, blue-free shots.

When photographing people at night or in low light, SR Auto optimises flash range, shutter speed, and exposure of the portraits, while capturing smooth and luminous background.

When shooting into the sun this optimises the exposure and flash to ensure clear, evenly lit facial features.

Perfect Portraits

For perfect people pictures Fujifilm’s Face Detection technology cleverly detects faces in the frame and sets the focus and exposure for the faces rather than anything in the background, revealing sharp and in-focus portrait shots.
No More Blur

The A170 is kitted out with Picture Stabilisation, which minimises image blur that can so often ruin photos. Fujifilm’s stabilisation system works automatically & ensures that image blurring and camera shake are kept to an absolute minimum.

Excellent low-light performance

Photos taken in low light are the ones that are most likely to produce disappointing results. Limited flash range and direct light can mean the foreground is harshly lit and the background lost all together. If the flash isn’t used at all, the image can suffer from digital interference called ‘noise’ as the sensor struggles to pick up all of the detail in the scene. Fujifilm has put 70 years of experience in imaging into fine-tuning the light sensitivity and flash systems of its cameras and you perhaps wouldnt normally expect a camera placed at such an affordable price point, to house such technology but we can assure you – it does.
Movie Recording with Zoom

Sometimes images just arent enough to capture that special moment. Relive your babys first steps or special celebrations with the A170s Movie mode with sound, at 30 frames per second.
Simple Point-and-shoot Modes

With 17 special scene modes, the A170 is ready to shoot everything and anything, from Sunsets to “Flowers”. Have fun trying out each scene position and the camera automatically selects the appropriate shutter speed, exposure and white balance to ensure that you get great images with the least amount of effort.
