Fujifilm's new 8-MegaPixel FinePix A820 ($179.95) and 9-MegaPixel FinePix A900 ($199.95) are a good deal for first-time digital camera buyers who are looking for an affordable, easy-to-use digital camera. Both cameras have features that you might see on more advanced models, including Fujifilm's signature Super CCD sensor technology, a 4x Optical Zoom lens and feature ISO levels of up to ISO 800. The FinePix A820 and A900 also feature a "Picture Stabilization" mode in the dial setting which automatically chooses the correct light sensitivity and best-matching shutter speed for high quality digital pictures without blur and the noise.
A new icon-based Graphic User Interface (GUI) provides a brief explanation of settings on the LCD screen, and a mode dial provides easy access to shooting modes, including Auto, Picture Stabilization and Movie mode and allows 1-touch access to other pre-programmed scene modes. The FinePix A820 and A900 also feature a "xD/SD Media Compatible slot" that accepts Fujifilm's traditional xD-Picture Cards, as well as SecureDigital (SD) media cards.
